    Current Employee - Aircraft Maintenance in Miami, FL

    I have been working at Lan Cargo full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This is a great place to get experience. The company works with the latest aircraft out there such as the Boeing 787 and Airbus 350. It is big enough to be a reputable company in the Miami Airport, but small enough to where your are not just a number. There is a family type environment in the maintenance area despite some internal feuds which is expected.

    Cons

    The company lacks a well defined structure in certain areas such as in salaries.

    I have been working at Lan Cargo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The team is one of the best ive ever work, they help each other as much as they can and you learn a lot from this experience

    Cons

    The schedule is hell, you can be working from 11 night to 7 am in the morning and some supervisors can be rude with you anytime they want which sucks, also they only make you an official member of the company after a year so you wont have any benefits for over a year (so no vacations, insurance or tickets discounts for a year) and thats only is if they want to keep you

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Lan Cargo full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Can't really name any pros except that you get a yearly bonus (maybe get a bonus).

    Cons

    Stay away from this company. I don't advise anyone to work here. They have you sign a contract for 2 years with Professional Aviation Management AKA Professional Business Concepts and if you leave before you would need to pay back about 5,000 dollars. Also upper management does not care about the mechanics. They overwork you with no pay increase, you feel like your working in a hostile and bad work environment, lack of communication, Shift changes every four months, supervisors are just there to follow orders and put mechanics at risk without using the proper equipment or tools . The company just hire mechanics from George T. baker. Company doesn't care if they loose mechanics or not, of course they always have George T.Baker students with no expeirence and they fall for the 2 yr contract with just about 19 an hour. This place is only good to get experience and move on to a much better company.

    I worked at Lan Cargo for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are great, they help counter the extremely stressful work environment. You learn to work in a high paced workplace with extremely unrealistic demands. Good healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    VERY low salaries compared to other companies, excused by the fact that they pay more for benefits. Which in most cases is not the case. Airline benefits are horrible, takes you 6 months to be eligible and the amount of free tickets you get is limited to 2 per year which is ridiculous if you ask me. Management LOVES to micro-manage, I'm talking about a Director asking a Jr. Analyst about day to day things. Systems are archaic, filled with patches that nobody knows about thus adding extra, unnecessary workload to other areas. Promotions are won by kissing tail, excuse my french, but that's the only way to put it. You have HORRIBLE people at the top KEY positions in most cases, earning HUGE salaries and all these so called "leaders" do is go into meetings all day long only to come down with extra work to pile on top of your very high pile of pending items. They expect you to work over-time regularly, even as an exempt employee. Overtime in critical moments is fine, but not every day of the year. Career plan is non-existent. Human Resources Business Partners don't care about employees, only management. I could go on.
