    I worked at AAR full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent selection of benefits, industry average pay.

    Cons

    Micro-managing senior staff. Far too much compliance training.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees do their damn job and stay out of our hair.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AAR (Wood Dale, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The process was fast and very professional. They flew me to Chicago to interview at their world headquarters in Wood Dale, IL. Gorgeous facility. Lovely people. Great work. Growing company. It was literally an amazing opportunity but it just was not the right time to make a career move.
