    Edwards AFB was an ideal location to retire from the military.

    Aircraft Section Chief (Former Employee)
    Edwards AFB, CA

    ProsI was able to experience a wide span of aircraft while stationed there. There was always a chance to meet new people and pickup information and knowledge from the more experienced maintainers.

    ConsI don't recommend Edwards AFB being a first assignment for new enlistees.

    It was the greatest experience working with the aviation test program.

    Aircraft Mechanic/F-104 Crewchief (Former Employee)
    Edwards AFB, CA

    ProsI was in the Air Force at the time (1968), I was assigned to the base as an aircraft mechanic.

    ConsThe extreme temperatures in the summer (hot!). had to stay hydrated. Regardless of the weather, the greatest experience to work at the location.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up with the good work!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lack of Safety in Aircraft engine shop.

    Aircraft Engine Mechanic (Former Employee)
    Rosamond, CA

    ProsBBQ's talking on your cell phone, playing on the computer during training days.

    ConsKeep in mind if you are going to work civil service get a lawyer because they will harass you. Double standards are normal for safety. F-100 Aircraft Engine trailer bumpers are 250 lbs and have no hooks for lifting even after idea paper work was done. The wrong ppe for condemned Fukushima engines was used by personnel etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop the harassment of your workers via Yahoo, Yahoo E-mail, Radio, job blacklisting, internet, cell phone taping, stalking with people ie Police sirens, Fire Department neighbors etc. Management needs to Grow up; following me across the USA and harassing me isn't going to fix the problems. Remake the tooling.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good, but...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-Some aspects were very exciting.
    -A lot of opportunities for growth.
    -Good travel opportunities.
    -Good benefits.

    Cons- Long hours required to get job done. Overtime was not encouraged; however it was often necessary and compensation was less than our hourly rate.
    -Although there was a lot of training offered, much of the mentoring/training did not apply to the "real work."

    Listen to your workers

    Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people focused on the test mission, but still have a desire to take care of people.

    ConsNSPS was a waste of time as a performance personal system.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow more diversity in the workplace. Promote more women and minorities in leadership roles. Have a formal mentoring program. Trial period for new supervisors to see how their employees rate them as supervisors before they are permanent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
