    I worked at CAE full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard days off, home everyday, good group of guys, after your trained you are on your own and left alone

    Cons

    Not enough instructors, time off was difficult on short notice. (1 to 2 weeks out) Difficult to transition into other airframes due to staffing issues

    Advice to Management

    Respect time off of employees and make a bigger effort to let instructors go fly. Get staffing up to allow more freedom to instructors.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CAE.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by a recruiter for a phone interview. Had phone interview with two engineers. General interview with a few tech questions. Told them I wanted Software Engineer intern and not QA. Given in person interview. Drove an hour just to find out SE intern position was filled.

    Interview Questions

    • Wasn't really any difficult question. Was asked what I'd do if my program did not compile.   Answer Question
