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

    Pros

    Good human resource department, nice building, and friendly co workers all around.
    Benefit for all employees.
    I am considered lucky to be a part of one of the great Teams there in Unical Aero where we had a good manager who always provide us with great supportive and also a good coach, a role model and inspiration to all of team members.
    Good teamwork, clear instructions, and well defined tasks..

    Cons

    not much to say about this.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep it up that (good) way so it is always a great place to work for.

    I have been working at Unical Aviation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits that's all for the employee

    Cons

    Everything else. Company has slave driving mentality. They force all employee to work overtime, second shift, and holiday. If you don't they mark as that you're not motivated at your job and threaten employees there will be no growth opportunity and may be terminated from their job. The whole company is a mess right now and the management would not listen any advice from anyone

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes. There is a reason all your employee are not happy right now. If you think high turnover rate is good, and not able to keep any new hire in the company then continue your slave mentality. You're just ruining the company future. Go ahead and try to do anything without any employee wanting to work for you

    There is a good reason that one of your oldest and longest employee left

    Pros

    HMO insurance covered by company in full, and I can't say that there is much else that would be considered a pro

    Cons

    Everything else, especially management (ranging from the department head to the owner) and the pay - so much for their Unical family values. If this is how you treat family, then I'd be concerned.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of wasting time playing Big Brother or buying more superhero figures or wasting money on changing the color of the couches every season in the lobby, please figure out how to retain people instead of just replacing them with the next bozo who is willing to stay for maximum abuse and minimal pay.

    I have been working at Unical Aviation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Basic medical benefits paid in full by the company. Occasional lunches provided by the company to celebrate major holidays. Great mechanics to work with.

    Cons

    This repair station is garbage. It appears if you are not Caucasian and don't brown nose the general manager you won't make it anywhere in this company. There is definite favoritism here as friends of management get hired and paid more than other hard working mechanics. If management doesn't like you, forget about fair pay, bonuses or pay raises while they make their six figure salaries.

    Negotiate your pay fiercely, don't let them undervalue you. One manager is getting paid six figures and was provided a free car with zero management experience! I was promised great sheet metal experience here, nope....what a joke department. Don't be fooled by any promises during the interview!

    Seems like the only way this place will get better is if we mechanics become unionized! Definitely not a company for the long haul. Just get your experience and bail.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being full of yourself and start appreciating each employee. Not everything is about money. Happy employees = Productive employees.

    I worked at Unical Aviation full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are the only good thing about this company

    Cons

    Company has no idea how to do real maintenance on live aircraft. They should stay within disassembling and selling aircraft parts. Trust me on this one, stay away from this company if you are an AP mechanic and you want to keep your mental health.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the warehouse experienced manager from aircraft maintenance duties. You will fail if you don't have an experienced program manager in charge of aircraft maintenance.

    Pros

    There is no reason to ever work here stay away!! No Pros in my opinion.

    Cons

    This company has a disease starts with a Q ends with Y, to say this company has a bad culture is an understatement. It is more like a cult, if your not a yes man don't bother working here, if you think independently stay away. This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for, they have a very high turn over rate for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is a border line Psychopath, get some professional help. The owners of this company know exactly what is going on and they do nothing about it. Open your eyes!
