    Pros

    It's the best/biggest aviation company in Tucson. The hangar is climate control and for the most part, you get your allotted hours every week

    Cons

    The 12 hour shifts working on the commercial side. Quality control is lacking with actual experience on the aircraft and it really shows

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive and less reactive when it comes to employee safety and satisfaction. It could be a great place to work if the focus was actually its people

    People and hours were great. Everyone was very dedicated and cared about the job. Pay was good when the Canadian dollar was strong.

    Cons

    If you don't speak french, it can be difficult at times to communicate, but wasn't a deal breaker. Very cold - Montreal.
    Very few people were comfortable making decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people. Remember that everyone is on the same team, and don't be afraid to confront the few bad apples in the bunch.

    Pros

    The company is a good place to work with competative salaries for the local area and generous benefits. At the flight test center you get to work on the actual aircraft and not just a small part or a computer model, which is very exciting. We also work on numerous aircraft types throughout the year, so there is always something new to learn.

    Cons

    Wichita is a small mid-west town, so while house prices are low the options for entertainment and eating out can be limited. Having said that, there is limited access to music and theater and the city is still expanding slowly.
