This was a wonderful job. Lots of new aspects to learn daily about helicopters
Warehouse Order Processor (Former Employee), Calgary, ABJune 20, 2013
Pros: great hours and wonderful co workers
Cons: standing for long periods of time
Responsibilities for this position included daily cycle counts of all product to ensure inventory counts were accurate. Picking, packing and shipping of all orders for commercial and military customers. I learned how to manifest proper customs forms for sending internationally. My co workers were incredible to work with and made it seem like less of – more... a job and more fun. – less

worker (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXApril 4, 2014
Pros: it's a paycheck
Cons: benifits are gone, jobs outsourced, low wages, many more
The Walmart of helicopter companies.
all I can say. Product quality is gone, Company is now run by bean counters and they have eviscerated the product. They no longer have control of parts, they're all drop shipped from vendors.
They want $10 hr workers, not highly skilled / compensated career minded people.

Aerospace Logistics Engineering Specialist (Current Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 29, 2014
Pros: investing in employees, great working environment, and employee engagement
Cons: benefits are expensive and layoff seasons.
It's easy to focus on the negative in a down economy, however, Bell is a great company to work for. There is a lot of pride to say that you work for Bell Helicopter. Contrary to some, John Garrison has done a wonderful job at transforming a company that, until recently was stuck in the 1970's way of business. He's refocused the company's culture to – more... new product development instead of upgrading old technology. Additionally they focus on employee engagement and encourage/empower employees to take control of their own careers. – less

No Direction
Quality (Former Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 21, 2014
This company is a great company to learn from but they cannot and will not hold on to talent and knowledge, they walk it right out the door, especially if you are not in the right "group". Management seems lost and lacks direction. The organization, in its present state, will not be able to compete in the markets that they are currently wanting to pursue, – more... with the exception of the next generation tiltrotor technology. – less

Poor Contract Job Experience
Resource Analyst (Former Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 13, 2014
This position I held was a contract position. The reception, training and guidance given by management and the department staff I was working with was very poor. I requested a phone to be installed in my office and never received one, I took over two weeks to get access to the departments network drives on the server to help with my job duties

Level II Airframe Mechanic (Former Employee), MCAS Miramar, CAMarch 1, 2014
A typical day at work was repairing, testing, washing, or troubleshooting CH-53E Helicopters.
I learned how to do sheet metal repair and fiberglass repair.
Management was laid back.
For the most part my co-workers were knowledgeable and hard working.
The hardest part of the job was acquiring parts.
The most enjoyable part of the job was satisfaction – more... of completing a task. – less
