I have been working at Aviation Technical Services full-time (Less than a year)
Its easy to get hired on with minimum experience. Great starting point to start your aviation career experience
Severely underpaid, lack of advancement and pay raises are almost non existent for directs hires. Company relies heavily on contractors for structural work with about 90 percent of them have no license including no station repairman. License direct are severely under utilized. Training outside initial hire is virtually non existent and the "Good old Boys" system is very strong and discouraging. The lack of teamwork between shifts is extremely high and leadership does not promote any sense of pride in your work other than get it done at whatever the cost.
Advice to Management
When you ask for employee input on company problems don't just ask and do nothing. . The lack of value placed on directs is why the company has a high turn over rate and low morale and the good old boy system is another key factor on why there are so many failures in success. Monitor your leads more closely then your regular employees and perhaps you will see where most issues start and end.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Aviation Technical Services (Kansas City, MO) in November 2016.
Standard question and answer interview with 2 current employees. A little different getting in as it is a secured facility, but an interviewer came and escorted me in. The two employees were very kind and welcoming. Overall a very nice interview.
