CL-415 Avionic Engineer Lead Hand / ACA (Current Employee), North Bay Ontario – November 17, 2014
Pros: every day is something new
Cons: very little organization
Working on the only hand build production aircraft in the world has provided more interesting day to day challenges than I ever expected. After producing 50 airplanes, no two have produced the same problems. The people are good to work with.
Team Lead Methods Technician (Current Employee), Thunder Bay – October 29, 2014
There is no typical day here. There is a new challenge every day. There are some great people in some departments. Management is weakly leading the team and the company is quite top-heavy. There is a lack of communication and trust which leads to low morale. The group of people that I work with is excellent and if we could overcome the barriers that – more... prevent us from doing a good job I would gladly work with them for many years to come. – less

Pros: flexible hours, excellent team work.
Cons: peak winter.
Currently working in In-Service Engineering Structures Dept. My work primarily involves engineering support for repairs for Regional Aircrafts (CRJ 200/700/900/1000). The tasks include Static and Damage tolerance/Fatigue Analysis substantiation for the Urgent and AOG repairs.
The group am currently working are very co-operative and share their valuable – more... experience for a result oriented approach towards the task.
My hardest part of the job is I am trying to keep up with my French language skills as the company is Bi-lingual. I understand most of the French meetings and good in short conversations but would like to improve my fluency in French.
The enjoyable part of the job is, the work includes a high volume of repair calls with varying repair issues and there is a great scope to work on the complete structure of an aircraft. The work is fast paced and gives an opportunity to deliver quality performance under pressure. – less
Engineer (Current Employee), Montréal, QC – September 30, 2014
You are not allowed to ask any questions that might point to a problem. Nepotism is seen at a very large scale; HR is not there for the employees, they seem very lost. If you are friends with the boss, then you will just sail through, even if you are a complete incompetent. People with no technical knowledge are leading engineering projects. No training – more... is permitted due to cost containment. Young engineers are not being guided, very sad that they are not challenged. Too many project leads/section chiefs/managers - who's working anymore? This company does not have any culture, employees are just numbers. – less

Data entry (Former Employee), Mirabel, QC – August 19, 2014
A typical work day started when you start you day, there was always things to do, people to get to sign things, email people to sign things, report to the boss if something big happened, ask a co-worker if you needed help.
I learned that Bombardier was always a busy company.
My co-workers were always very nice to me, they taught me many things while – more... there. What data bases to use for what, where to put the papers for certain people to sign, what needed to be done for that day and so on.
The hardest part of the job I believe was where certain papers had to go, since the place was so big.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to do new things. – less
