    I have been working at LMI Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Being in engineering services, the work they aquire is always interesting and fast paced.
    Learned a lot quickly
    The employee onsite were great coworkers and there is a lot of teamwork throughout the engineers
    Pay is decent with occational opportunities for overtime

    Cons

    The company has been mismanaged for years causing the bids to be more expensive then they need to be. It caused us to lose out on most of our bids
    In the All Hands meetings they talk about all the work they have coming in and it never does, its hard to trust
    Due to needing to keep consistancy of engineers on projects, they will lay off due to what program you got on and not by skill or experience. Eg: They laid off one of their best engineers and a very good engineer who had been at the company for 30 years but still had people that took 1-2 days to create a 20 page PowerPoint

    Advice to Management

    Lay off level 3s that dont perform and hire more young engineers, it will reduce your cost greatly and would often increase productivity.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at LMI Aerospace (Saint Charles, MO).

    Interview

    It was a simple 5 min phone interview with just one hiring manager on the phone, basically just asking me my past work experience in that field and asking detailed questions about how I performed those jobs
