Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Benefits, 4 day work week, work at the airport, little supervision

Cons

Management does not care about apprentices, plays favorites, no training, no respect toward apprentice, poor supervisors. Mechanics are always right and apprentices have no say even when they know better than the mechanics.

Advice to Management

Give respect to the apprentices. They have good ideas and know more than you think. Listen to them and quit playing favorites with the mechanics.
