    I have been working at Airbus part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm just a part time intern, but I still get perks like paid time off and paid holidays. Management is usually very flexible and willing to work with your school schedule!

    Cons

    Unless you ask for more responsibility, it is easy to get stuck with meaningless "intern"duties such as data entry and assembling carts.

    I worked at Airbus (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found Airbus to be a great place to work. I was always treated as a valued member of a team. The competency level of my peers was of the highest level. The management team was great to work for and provided good two-way communication with the subordinates. The facility was the best I've ever experienced. The benefits package was also the best I've ever been provided with.

    Cons

    I really do not have any negative comments to make regarding my time there.

    Pros

    The work force in the DCR shop is great. In the other shops the supervisors/managers are great.

    Cons

    Five supervisors in eight years says it all in the DCR shop. The wheel gets reinvented time and time again. If you are looking to advance look elsewhere very good old boy.

    Pros

    The people and laid back environment

    Cons

    Clickish; they cater to who they know/like and have history with; Mngmt more concerned about saving pennies in ridiculous redundant areas rather than the actual quality of the product; concerned with doing ONLY what the UK bosses want and not standing up for the Wichita office; would rather cut corners is the forefront of the philosophy-not the 'product'

    Pros

    One shift in the painting department; plenty of hours usually 12+ monday-saturday sometimes sundays. Other than that no real pros.

    Cons

    One shift in the helicoptor painting department and the company waits until customers get their products before paying the employees; which can sometimes take a whole month before you receive a paycheck.
