    I have been working at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time

    Pros

    Many instructors and staff truly love what they do for the students and it shows

    Cons

    School management does not follow-up on staff/student requests quickly, does not coomunicate effectively the "big picture" so staff/students have a clear understanding of what is expected. They work "reactively" and not "proactively". The main excuse I have heard so many times is that "I have 400 students to deal with", yet many times the littlest act of communication, to stay informed with students/staff, is overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff and students, learn to set time apart directly for them so they completely understand what is going on and this just may control the tension a bit.

    I worked at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great support and guidance from department leader.

    Cons

    Low pay. Too structured. No room for growth. Employee benefits not very good --medical coverage is unaffordable. I don't know why I stayed as long as I did.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on minimizing your employee turnover.You get what you pay for. Pay more and get qualified people and recognize them so that they stay.

    Pros

    It is nice to have weekends and most holidays off. Lower management seems to be open to suggestions and willing to make improvements.

    Cons

    The current pay is not enough for what is expected by middle management. The campus needs more support and direction from senior (corporate) management.

    Advice to Management

    This campus needs better organization, clear communication, and consistency.However, things seem to be improving overall.
