I have been working at Aerojet Rocketdyne full-time (More than 5 years)
This is a challenging and rewarding place to work. You are empowered to do your job. It offers a wide range of programs to work on.
There is a lot of travel to the Camden, AR site. Management is closing the Gainesville, VA and Sacramento, CA sites and relocating most to Huntsville, AL. I do not have a sense of a strong future with this company. The strategy seems to be cut and cheapen rather than improve and innovate. New leadership does not inspire confidence for the future.
Advice to Management
Consider changing cost improvement strategy to focus on improvement rather than trying to lean everything out so much that getting the job done is near impossible under current constraints.
I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Aerojet Rocketdyne.
Applied, they contacted me after a month. Set up a phone interview. Lasted 40 minutes. I talked with two other people and they asked basic questions. Was very comfortable--my favorite interview to date.
HOW FUN IS THIS? The “Pluto Not Yet Explored” stamp has earned a Guinness World Record honor for the farthest distance traveled by a postage stamp. Of course, that could never have happened without the help of AR propulsion :) #Pluto http://go.nasa
