Design Engineer, Aircraft Cabin Interiors (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – 12 May 2017
on occasions you are required to meet extremely difficult dead lines. they are getting better organized and better about distribution of the work load. I believe all employees are treated fairly, no clicks.
generally you can always find some to help you out.
Composites Assembler (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA 92806 – 27 April 2017
A typical day at work I would start off by getting my task of the day then I would get material I needed and game plan on my task using blue prints. The hardest part of he job was having to finish all the work load I was tasked to do but I always worked my hardest to achieve that goal of the day. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I was given many opportunities to learn different skills and gain plenty of knowledge in the aerospace field.
The Company is the world’s leading manufacturer of aircraft cabin interior products. B/E Aerospace designs, develops and manufactures a broad range of products for both commercial aircraft and business jets. B/e Aerospace places great value in its Employees.
Good pay, great people to work with

Builder (Current Employee) – Great Falls, MT – 3 April 2017
Learned a new trade in the aircraft industry. Overall experience was positive. Started the day with greeting fellow employees and then move on to building the appropriate items for the aircraft which would continue through the day. Workplace culture was a great learning experience. By this I mean getting to know all the different backgrounds of the wide variety of the employees working at the facility. The best part of the job was getting to tackle new challenges.
Supply Chain Manager (Former Employee) – Marysville, WA – 29 March 2017
B/E is a good company to work for. They are head and shoulders above the competition within their industry when it comes to processes and the way they treat people.
There is the typical corporate (American) layer of bureacracy that tries to enforce top down initatives that don't always make sense for certain business units (example: x% spend with Low Cost Countries for example). It's definitely a corporate environment that comes with the plusses and minuses - they have excellent benefits overall.
The site I worked for did a great job of making effort to retain employees and treated employees pretty well! There was a concerted effort and discussions at the leadership levels on how to be an "employer of choice". The very fact that this is something they cared about translated into actions within the culture.
B/E is one of the better paying companies within the industry due to the vicinity and local competition. The people are it's strength and they recognize that there is a value in "tribal knowledge" within aerospace and many members of the leadership team I worked with truly cared about taking care of their folks.
If you have an opportunity to work here I'd say go for it!
good solid company within the industry - retrofit is fun
chemical processor (Former Employee) – Lenexa, KS – 10 March 2017
I would not recommend working for this company at the Lenexa Kansas facility. Worked there for a long time and seen numerous turnover in management. The company is only downsizing and the management does not care about their employees. They say they want your ideas on continuous improvement but in reality they usually have a committee of people to tell you how your job responsibilities should be done. I felt like I was treated like a beginning employee and I worked there over 20 years.
