    I worked at JBT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly staff, great benefits, interesting work

    Cons

    As a field service engineer you will travel constantly, this was told to me but I still felt they misrepresented just how much travel is involved.

    Advice to Management

    Bring college students in as interns - this field is relatively illusive until you are doing it. I thought it sounded very enticing but was bored by the work.

    Decent pay, room for growth, maintence is less demanding than many production factories.

    I worked at JBT (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got some amazing experience at JBT Aerotech as an intern. I obtained experience in engineering design changes using NX, hands on engineering testing experience testing Deicers using accelerometers, strain gauges and running a stress analysis test. I also received experience in some coding software as well.

    Cons

    The faculty should have done a better job at distributing the grunt work instead of leaving it up to the head inter. I got stuck with most of it which i felt was unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Take more initiative at distributing the grunt work evenly.
