I have been working at CAE USA full-time (More than 3 years)
I've liked working for CAE for the past 4.5 years. Benefits are good, 2 weeks vacation and 56 hours of sick leave is given at the beginning of the year, not accrued.
Sick leave policy used to be better. Beginning in 2016 they reduced yearly allotment from 80 hours to 56. They also used to allow carry over of unused sick leave into the new calendar year. Now that has changed and any unused sick leave carries over into a new bank called Extended Leave which requires manager's approval to use.
Advice to Management
Be willing to pay competitive salaries to hire on better talent. We had a lot of turn over because new hires were often low balled on salary.
I applied online. I interviewed at CAE USA (Sherwood, AR) in October 2016.
Interviewed with three department leads/managers, and finally with the group leader. A bit grueling, but I understood the reasoning behind it. Very thorough questions, but they were also open to questions from me. Tough, but engaging interviews. All four were very friendly and encouraging.
