Very friendly atmosphere. People were very professional in the aspects of their jobs. I picked up on many aspects of the analytical nature along the way. Management used to be strong well placed, but kind of weakened into the years of 2015 and 2016. Did not really no how to handle situations well with the down sizing of the company. My time there I really enjoyed managing the BEIMS database system. Hardest part of my job maybe dealing with certain personal who needed their data information input like yesterday. Did not happen very often.
Was a great place to work in.
Last two years started to get a bit disorganized with lay offs, occurring just about every 3 months. Became a very unhealthy environment to work in at that point.

Étant retraité de chez Bell Helicopter j'y ai passé 25 ans. J'ai aimé mon expérience. Beaucoup d'opportunité à apprendre différents postes, formation adéquate au type de travail. L'aspect le plus difficile fut de s'assurer de la qualité des pièces montées mais fut aussi un défi fort apprécié qui nous permet de se dépasser. Pour ce qui est de la supervision, je n'ai jamais eu de problème à être dirigé ou supervisé.
Senior Mechanical Designer BH (Former Employee) – Saint Therese – 12 May 2015
-A typical day at work was an exercise in finding out what was going on and how I fit into the grand scheme. -I got to brush up on my V4 skills and was given a couple of V6 classes -My manager was off sick mostly so I ended up working for someone who it seemed would rather I didn`t bother him while he planned to take over the original guy`s job. -Other than my supervisor everyone there was helpful, jovial and talented. -The hardest part of the job was dealing with my supervisor and getting work released. I wasn`t properly shown how it was done. - My co-workers made the experience bearable.
My co-workers professionalism, dedication and helpfulness
seeming rudderless direction and lack of communication.
