    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.

    Interview

    They are courteous and professional, worked hard to make me feel comfortable in interview. I was prepared to answer airplane system questions but was not asked any. Was prepared to teach a system but was not asked to do so. Mostly questions about my style in handling problem students that were behind the learning curve, I.E, document everything and get them help, don’t try to proceed without notifying supervisor etc. keep everyone in loop. External customer vs. internal customer standard questions. Very straightforward interview. I wore a jacket and a tie, they did not. I was early 15 mins, they were late 10 mins. Panel of four platform mgrs. plus recruiter who ran the show. Adhoc questions that jumped around asking same questions from different points of view. Recruiter mentioned that she made several hundred cold calls per month to entice po
