Job security and advancement is hampered by layoffs
Quality Assurance/Training Coordinator (Former Employee), Ozark, ALOctober 3, 2013
A typical day at work included coordinating technical training as well as working with internal and external customers.

While there I learned ISO/AS9100 concepts; Learning management systems; steps involved in building helicopters.

Management worked well under very difficult circumstances.

Very diligent and dedicated co-workers.

The most difficult – more... part of the job was learning on the fly.

The people were the most enjoyable part of the job – less

Wonderful Co-Workers
Intern (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXAugust 9, 2013
Pros: pay, co-workers
Cons: no diversity
I absolutely loved my co-workers and everyone that worked around me. The pay was GREAT for an intern, but I've noticed that there are no women or other minorities in management positions. Hell, even lower positions. Bell is very much stuck in their old ways and are going to have to change if they want to succeed in the future.
