    I have been working at Hawthorne Global Aviation Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Management actively listens to new ideas and concerns.
    Tenants and transient pilots are fun to work with, as are the co-workers.
    Feeling a sense of accomplishment during flightline operations.
    A resume builder for anyone entering or restarting a career in aviation.

    Cons

    Unpredictable schedule at night with late arrivals but since Hawthorne at PKWK isn't a 24 hour FBO, this is to be expected on occasion but the job always gets done.
    Line Service turnover rate can be frequent when employees do not expect to stay employed more than a few months.

    Advice to Management

    Quite honestly, I haven't worked with a better group of managers and employees.

    Pros

    Good overtime, pay is fair and good experience.

    Cons

    Bad management, bad treatment of personnel, and if they say "sign on bonus", don't hold your breath.

    Advice to Management

    Retire.

    Pros

    Growing company with a warm, friendly and genuine culture. Our employees are very dedicated to the company and enjoy coming to work. I have been here for almost 2 years and

    Cons

    we're still growing so career progression is limited for the time being. Long-term opportunities for those who work hard and continue to develop themselves.

    I worked at Hawthorne Global Aviation Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great overtime. The buck stops there.

    Cons

    Lack of management. His way or the highway mentality.

    Advice to Management

    There's probably a good reason why the CEO found a new job elsewhere and employees are leaving left and right. If the company is that great to work for, people wouldn't leave. Get your act together.

    P.S. - you wouldn't get a raise for a long time and the company makes a lot of money.
