Fun but tiring experience.

Aircraft Appearance Tech (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

Pros-Flight benefits of course. :)
-Great pay with frequent raises.
-Great Health Benefits.
-Fun and Exciting Culture.

-Week of training at HQ in Dallas. Such a fun experience!

Cons-Bad schedule (worked third shift) and cause you bid by seniority I had pretty bad days off.
