I worked at AAR full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good pay Good benefits and very flexible schedule. Supervisors are friendly and helpful. Vacation benefits mostly positive working culture.

Cons

Gossipy employees almost like middle school girls. Sometimes too many hours. The raises are not the best. As of late the job security hasn't been the same since when I started.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on communication with employees

    I worked at AAR full-time

    Pros

    Great healthcare (as of 2010). Annual golf tournament (in OKC). At the time, they were working on ironing out the problems in Indianapolis...don't know how that played out.

    Cons

    Felt kind of like a government job with less benefits and security. Didn't seem to be a lot of opportunity for advancement unless you wanted to move to Chicago (HQ).

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AAR full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Small town environment. Cheap housing in some areas. Fair shopping conveniences. Just off a highway so fair access to Raleigh (1-1/2 to 2 hours away).

    Cons

    Everything! Nobody except Quality cares about any quality. All other functional manager fight among themselves and blame all the problems they create on Quality. Management constantly fights and points fingers at each other. Contractors are worked to death, with excessive overtime, while full-time employees are paid much lower wages (in the 25 percentile of equivalent salaries for similar aerospace jobs in NC. For several years, they didn't have an HR Manager, and the former GM was only there part-time because he came out of retirement until they found someone willing to take the GM role - which took several years. Most managers are only concerned about either bringing parts in form suppliers on-time, even though they are not inspected by the supplier; or shipping product that is not conforming, just to meet the on-time shipping date. Most people I knew while I worked there were continually looking for another job to get out of the AAR Cargo circus..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like a team, and like you care about the employees instead of just yourself!
