    I have been working at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Indoor plumbing, excellent coworkers (for the most part)

    Cons

    Lack of leadership plays tug-of-war with micromanagement. Students and instructors alike are treated like children with the implementation of every new rule. Being a corporation (money driven) over rules the prevalent need to uphold ethics in the aviation field. As long as the money keeps flowing, upper management is satisfied

    Advice to Management

    Consult other 147 operators for advice on the poorly designed curriculum. Have a better line of communication across the board. Stop worrying about aesthetics and focus on the dilapidated tooling, inadequate supplies, and antiquated technology the technologically-challenged instructors use.

    Current Employee - Instructor in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A great opportunity to share aviation experience with new people. Good work hours, familiar culture (military aviation), knowledgeable co-workers, good supervisors, decent work conditions, no one trying to out-do the others (no office politics). Fair to everyone.

    Cons

    Pay on the low side, benefits are non-existent/stingy and not competitive with other businesses.

    Advice to Management

    To attract and keep talent, they should be fairly compensated and receiving benefits should not take so long to "earn" - especially when the job market is strong for employees. Turnover would be reduced and people would not look elsewhere for pay/benefits improvements. In trying to grow a business, compensation is paramount to keeping/attracting talent. What is the cost of turnover vs. demonstrating that employees... are of paramount importance to business health?

    Pros

    Actually not a bad place to work. Met some awesome people there.

    Cons

    Hmmm. After listing this job on ypur resume, noboday has wanted to hire specifically because other companies say they have a bad rep and I could be a product of that. Damn- Can I at least get some work there again? LOL! Since I can't wirk anywhere else? Also, micromanagement from poorly trained sexually harassing DOA's.

    Advice to Management

    At least keep one or two ioen slots for those that left due to poor management but can't work anywhere else because of a bad rep. Right? Yeah. That's it.

    Pros

    pretend to be dumb and do nothing

    Cons

    mostly everything...no one wants to do their job so they play dumb. You do other peoples work and get little reward since raises are based on the whole campus performance not your own. When you do get a raise it might be 5-15 cents.The enviroment is horrible and there is always a conflict between staff and faculty. People divide into little clicks and spend their days talking bad about each other....you start to... wonder why you show up. Digging ditches is better than being here.Not even the students want to be there. Management has a "Theres the door" attitude and you feel like a place holder. Depression sets in and you decide to get an ice cream from the vending machine...the machine dispenses a melted ice cream Snickers and you want to quit.You go to the soda machine hoping a some sugar will cheer you up...it eats your money. This place steals your soul and money all for a non liveable wage. Your happy its over but then you wake up the next day.
