Typical Contractor
Aircraft Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN24 October 2017
Try direct hire placement before going with contract work unless you don't value having to move around etc. pay is ok but still not worth not having complete job security.

It's ok, if you really need a job to provide for your family it's an ok place to work. It's an ok place to work if you really need a job to keep a roof over your head.
