    I worked at Dallas Airmotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and tons of available overtime. Potential for a wide variety of work depending on your supervisor and your initiative.

    Cons

    Once you work overtime they expect you to work 60+ hour weeks every week. New thoughts aren't always encouraged. Lots of old timers so there tends to be a "good 'ol boy club" mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to give your overworked employees a break!

    I worked at Dallas Airmotive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Basically a good company that can go as far as it's leaders want to take it.

    Cons

    After several years of poor leadership the company needs to refocus on it's goals and people.

    Advice to Management

    List to the rank and file, lower and middle management for ideas to run the company better. Focus on the core business and stop wasting middle and upper management employees time on dead end projects that lead nowhere.

    Figure out how to budget expansions and plan work better.

    Pros

    Pays the bills until you can find a REAL aviation job.

    Cons

    Like I said, I never wanted to work there. They have a horrible reputation in the industry. I worked for another company that was acquired by Dallas Airmotive. I began looking for employment elsewhere immediately after the acquisition, but it took time to find another job because the country was mired in the recession of 2008-2009. Pay is well below industry average. The company does not deal with its problems, especially problem supervisors. They prefer looking the other way or sweeping them under the rug with the hope that their problems will somehow magically solve themselves. I've never been treated so poorly as I was at Dallas Airmotive and would never recommend this place to anyone, not even someone fresh out of A&P school looking for their first aviation job. Managers yelling and screaming and cussing like longshoremen, and using intimidation tactics to get you to put junk parts back in engines so they can save a few bucks under the guise of "providing value to our customers." That's Dallas Airmotive. No thanks.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house.

    Pros

    A lot of good people... peers are very helpful

    Cons

    The company management is constantly changing and they don’t appreciate or know how to treat people, they will push you over the edge. There is no future for this organization people are always under the gun to perform better.

    They will lie to everybody and tell the employees that everything is great.

    I worked at Dallas Airmotive full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture. Laid back yet respectfully professional. Modern and clean facility. Quite a bit of money has been invested in the Grapevine, TX facility, and they are building a new facility at DFW airport. Decent benefits, but medical--just like almost everyone else--is high. Overtime just about all the time which can really boost your annual income. Quarterly profit sharing.

    Cons

    Wages are low and yearly raises hover around two percent. This will not keep you ahead of national inflation. Limited production titles and small number of employees at this location limit vertical movement, and most title/dept. changes are considered a horizontal move which does not come with a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better yearly wage increases to encourage employee performance and appreciation. Higher wages would be good, but this is unlikely to happen.

    Pros

    Peer personnel are great, excellent safety culture.

    Cons

    Horrific management, no work life balance in the corporate areas. Very unethical business practices. The pay is way lower than market average. Management does not understand that they work on a business that is strictly luxury driven in a very cyclical industry for 90% of its customers.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent with what you tell your employees, understand the market you work in!!!
