    Pros

    Jetstream of Houston has such an enviable culture. I truly enjoy the people I work with which makes going to work enjoyable.

    Jetstream of Houston has challenges like any business. Our strength is that we capture improvement ideas and work through them to get better each day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking and collaborating. Continue to hire top talent and never settle for mediocre.

    I worked at Jetstream Of Houston as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leaving is the first pro. Removing from my resume is the second. Lastly, never speaking of this company after this review!

    Cons

    Management lies, hides facts from, bungles and disrespects employees on a daily basis. You will never get the truth from anyone in this company. If you are looking for respect of any kind you won't get it here. Management treats everyone as if they have no experience. There's no trust and no advancement either. They live to dump employees with no warning either. Be safe and don't apply here as you will not be happy at all.

    Advice to Management

    They are beyond hope. The culture towards staff is use, misuse and disguard. Management has no idea how to treat employees and, to be honest, they don't care either.

    Pros

    Their payroll checks do clear.

    Cons

    High turnover--only a few senior managers (the long time insiders) stay on. Some of these entrenched personalities are quite difficult to deal with, especially in sales. Not a desirable industry (industrial cleaning)--low tech, low growth, and boring. Strictly D-list talent with pay to match. Company is not the market leader in its segment and is barely even number 3. They're owned by Federal Signal and like to pretend that they're a big corporation, even though they're not, lol. Overall, I'd pass, unless you're a Lone Star College grad with a B/C average.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really since I've moved on to bigger and better things and am embarrassed to say I was part of this organization. See you never!

    I have been working at Jetstream Of Houston full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company gave me a cell phone, management is completely lost and hasn't got a clue as to what really is going on so its easy to do nothing.

    Cons

    the pay is not good, management is a joke (the blind leading the blind) Jetstream and fs soutions are revolving doors for employees and management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire your own replacement, oh wait, you always do..

    I worked at Jetstream Of Houston full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) It is a small company.
    2) They fed people good.
    3) They paid you for your work.
    4) I had weekends off.
    5) The restrooms were clean.

    Cons

    1) It is a small minded company.
    2)The people there seemed to act as if being a disabled Vet was an excuse.
    3) It felt oppressive.
    4) It took 3 weeks for them to get me a computer and software because they didn't know what I needed - I was being timed and judged, no equipment.
    5) The guy that discriminated against me being disabled, was a judge on whether I stayed or not, very oppressive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Orientate your staff to not ask questions/make statements like, "what exactly is your disability? You look fine to me."

    And tell your managers not to say, "I don't have empathy for American Vets, I'm from Canada." And try to pass it off as humor, in an interview.

    I worked at Jetstream Of Houston full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good hours, benefits we're good, most shop employees are good to work with and a relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay and raises are a joke, management has its own little click and only look out for themselves. You do not feel valued at all and feel looked down upon. Office and shop workers have a huge disconnect and teamwork is preached but not practiced.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your pay scale and put an end to paying machinists $4-$6 under market rate. There is no reason to pay so low when the business is flourishing as they say in monthly meetings. As the company grew more profitable, raises and bonuses for hourly employees shrink.

    I worked at Jetstream Of Houston as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In the few months that I worked, re-designing Jetstream product catalogs I was able to work with wonderful and highly skillful people. They were always open to creative ideas. It's not always sweet, people here confront the company problems, which is great! Because they work together to solve them. So even if there are uncomfortable moments or disagreements, they are only in the best interest of everyone. And I love these challenges!

    Cons

    The only con is the traffic to get there. And that my assignment was so short.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work!
