    Worked 20 Plus Years

    Master Mechanic (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsA great place to learn heavy maintence on aged A/C. A wide range of work scope & outstanding people to learn from that are more than willing to teach you. If you want to learn about how an MRO should operate on how to accomplish heavy checks in the shortest time this place that has an awesome system. Medical, Dental & Vision was above average when I was there.

    ConsNot much of a retirement system (Limited 401k).

    Advice to Senior ManagementUp the retirement.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Work here at your own risk

    A&P Mechanic (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsI got enough experience to move on to better things... beyond that there really is nothing I can say.

    ConsYou're experience here can go from good to horrible based on the lead you get. The management will place anyone in a lead position regardless of people skills. You can expect to be literally yelled at in front of everyone if you make a mistake or if the lead just doesn't like you and management won't do anything to help you. This place made me consider leaving aviation all together. Luckily I found out not every place is as awful as ATS. I once had my schedule changed (from day shift Monday - Thursday to night shift Friday - Monday) while I was on vacation for a week and didn't find out until I tried to clock in on my usual schedule. The management has no regard for your life. In one "All Employee Meeting" they told us we should be happy to have a job because there is nothing else available, after they started cutting benefits. This company will never be anything more than a failed venture by completely inept overrated "CEO"s. They chase off their better employee's and keep the hacks that will do anything to sell a job wrong or right. I believe it is only a matter of time before a plane coming out of maintenance here goes down killing everyone on board. I would rather work at Wal-mart than return to this place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with integrity to fill lead and supervisor positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very un-organized, unprofessional management & work environment!

    Avionics Electrician (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsA diverse clientele ie Southwest, UPS, AirCanada, Alaska Airlines.

    ConsAs said before a very un-organized, unprofessional management & work environment. Leads do as they please, regardless of ethics or company policy. Management not only allow disrespect or harassment between employees, they also encourage and participate in this type of behavior. I started working as a contractor in 2011 and for almost 2 years they promised clients deadlines that were almost impossible to meet forcing us mechanics to work over 60 hours a week or getting fired if could not meet them. For our surprise after those huge workloads a lot of us were getting fired or were working 10-25 hours a week.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI encourage the executives of this company to send EVERYBODY in a management position to leadership classes and to advice them about possible legal actions by employees if the keep that type of conduct. Valuing your employees involves a lot more than just saying you value your employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Employee (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ATS- no room for growth unless you're friends with someone in senior administration

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsGreat place to start a career. The people I work with are great. The location is good (close to i5 and 405.)

    ConsNo room for growth. Hard to trust senior management (for example laying off people 3 days after stating there would be no more layoffs, but calling it re-organization.) Little to no raises.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPeople notice there is a "good ol' boy" network happening again, it's discusting- try promoting from within. Beer and hot dog events will never be equal to getting a real pay raise.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Going downhill fast

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsThere are some very good, dedicated people working here.

    ConsSenior management has been driving this company downhill for a few years now. Averaging 2-3 layoffs per year for the last couple years. The smart employees have left for greener pastures in droves. The ones that stuck around -- the dedicated ones -- are the ones getting screwed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually valuing your employees involves a lot more than just saying you value your employees.

    Don't do it

    L4 Mechanic (Current Employee) Everett, WA

    ProsHard to say these days. Managers and sups see the writing on the wall and have given up.
    Leads do as they please, regardless of ethics or company policy; ie my lead has persuaded my direct manager to allow his son to be hired onto our crew.
    If you try hard and get hooked up with a good crew or 'mentor' you can get some good experience. However the veteran talent, for the most part, has moved on tO Boeing or other agencies.

    ConsSenior leadership chases pennies whilst dropping dollars in the process. Ideas to help streamline or increase efficiency on the floor are disregarded, or given lip service with nothing ever coming to fruition. In the last four years we have had four vp's and as many upper enchalant types, all repeat the mistakes of their predecessors and still no one listens to the menchanics who are the backbone of their company.
    Health insurance, 401k, PTO and holiday time has become increasingly pathetic as the company goes under, yet they have the money to open a new facility near Moses lake. We have sold hanger 3, hanger 2 is about to be lost....this company path makes no sense to me, but then again I'm just a mechanic.......

    Advice to Senior ManagementRather than fluff your bosses or act as high paid yes men, put a little effort into protecting the jobs of the excellent employees you have now. Stop worrying about your own personal egos, and agendas and start recognizing that we are one company not individual lines/crews.
