  1. "Great for short term experience"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Weber Aircraft

    Pros

    You get hands on experience working on lot of projects and build your skills. Chance to get familiar with aircraft industry.

    Cons

    Management is bad. You will be dumped with numerous tasks and most of it needs attention the same time. It will stress you out if your testing fails and you have to redo it. Get some experience and move out.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Weber Aircraft

    Pros

    Great organization now known as Zodiac Aerospace. They are one of the more positive manufacturing companies I have worked for. Management was extremely supportive and helpful. The company works well with the union and the employees take great pride in their work. Pay is comparable to the region for north Texas and south Oklahoma. The organization also provides accrued sick leave, vacation pay, 401k among other benefits.

    Cons

    Some areas of the company do have a feeling of nepotism where there are spouses working within close proximity of eath other. This would give the impression that preferential treatment is given when time off is rewarded to employees, especially when that spouse is in a management position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep maintaining the focus on process improvement.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Weber Aircraft for less than a year

    Pros

    Paid well and the job was quite challenging. Lots of room to learn. Plenty of traveling if you like that thing.

    Cons

    Too much management disorganization. Got the impression that it was a very clanny place to work. Too much reshuffling going on and management fighting for positions.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff better

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Weber Aircraft full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great place to start a career , at the time. Helpful community in engineering. Just small enough to design and follow through with the entire manufacturing into assembly.

    Cons

    Difficult work environment with union, less-than-helpful manufacturing employees. Engineering is somewhat discontinuous and unfocused.

    Advice to Management

    Management was a revolving door during my time. Ideas were never brought to fruition. Management was very much secluded in both their ideas and their meetings. Outside input did not seem welcomed, or it was entertained and dismissed as inferior. Given the management atmosphere described, there is no advice to give that will make any significant impact.

    I have been working at Weber Aircraft full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Not many. ....you get your own desk. ....sometimes. Some people do have to share a desk with second shift though, so be sure to clear out before they sit on you.

    Cons

    Everything else. Literally, ......EVERYTHING ELSE.

    Advice to Management

    Burn the place to the ground and start over. Preferably leaving the majority of management inside. Everyone runs around cracking whips to get stuff done, it doesn't get done, they crack whips harder. Try helping once in a while, or contributing in a positive way. Also, understand that giving a project a deadline, .....then adding a bunch of stuff to the project REQUIRES the changing of the original deadline!!! You...
