Internship (Former Employee), Montréal, QC – June 29, 2012
I learned lot of things at this place when I was working as a Intern. Meeting with Managers and design Engineers was a great part for Brain Storming. I was assign a task to improve a design process of a product development program. During the first day of work I felt so good when the manager of our department joined with me for the lunch.
permanent employee (Former Employee), Montreal – April 26, 2012
Pros: good salary
Cons: very dipressing enviroment
I worked for 18 yrs,the whole time I was depressed,very much discriminated from the French Canadian colleagues,The management and the HR were doing nothing to improve the situation. I was harassed constantly from my boss,abuse verbally,bullied....total mess. You constantly have to look over your shoulder because you never know who is going to back stub – more... you. We were not allowed to take our sick days and if we had to take them we had to speak with the boss. We were observed from the boss how long we talk on the phone. I was so much diminished in this company that I hate them all. I know allot of other people that are feeling this way and their life is being totally distorted because of the constant difficult conditions we were faced for so long. – less
STAFF ASSISTANT / INVOICE ANALYST (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 22, 2013
This is a great company to work for. Job security is great and benefits are out of this world. If you have an opportunity to work for them, keep it. Although, the pay is not so great, but the benefits talks for itself and time off you can accrue.
weak ineffective management. Old boys club if your not in the click forget any opportunity.
Aircraft maintenance (Current Employee), Teterboro – April 22, 2013
Pros: good benefits package.
Cons: no opportunity. inept leadership. financially unstable.
It's apparent that Flexjet is a nonprofit organization of bombardier. Its poor leadership will keep it that way. Parent company Bombardier has conducted annual employee surveys that show the problems clearly, but action is never taken to rectify them in over four years. No ability to communicate effectively. No one is able to lead teams or groups in – more... one clear conscience direction. Little to no opportunity in Flexjet. You will be forced to go somewhere else for advancement. I have seen managers give negative references to other employers looking to hire former employees. that is the negative. The positive is good health care, pay, and 401k. – less
Avionics Tech/Aircraft Tech (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 29, 2013
Pros: work on technically advanced aircraft
Cons: long hours
If your looking for an aircraft Bombardier is the place to buy one. The work force takes great pride in putting out a exceptional product. The hardest part of the job is that engineering can be slow in getting the information needed to complete the job. Making the customer happy.
Buyer (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – March 15, 2013
Pros: easy work hours
Cons: see above statements.
After working for this company for eight years, I noticed a culture of imbalance of priorities that was very disturbing to me. Supervisors were placing unfair and impractical objectives on their employees with the expectation of completion with unrealistic time frames. If I had any illusions as to how they did business before I was employed there, I – more... have none at all now. I would not recommend anyone seeking employment at the Tucson facility. – less
Assembler (Former Employee), Plattsburgh – March 7, 2013
I worked here for 2 years as a temp and then was fired claiming a " quality issue" no write up no evaluation, But there were people hired on that couldn't read a measuring tape or even read for a matter of fact
Thoroughly enjoyed my job and working with so many people from all over the UK
Service Engineer (Former Employee), Glasgow Central + Polmadie/Craigntinny depots – February 23, 2013
Pros: being able to travel anywhere on the west or east coast
Cons: long 12 hour day and night shifts
Met all trains upon arrival at GLC and talked with all staff, repairing and reporting any faults they informed me of,or I found walking through the sets. Travelled up and down west and east coast, repairing,fault finding and monitoring on the move. Learnt more extensive electrical skills as was required of the job. Self managed 95% of the time, rarely – more... had any involvement from my management. Enjoyed working with all staff I encountered, be they Train drivers/managers, cleaners or platform staff, and had good working relationships with all of them, including depot staff when attending on nightshifts to undergo heavy maintenance. Enjoyed all aspects of the work, the hardest part was probably having to deal with drunk/awkward passengers. The most enjoyable part was that every day was different, working with different staff or travelling to somewhere new, and that one day you could be fixing a coffee machine, the next you could be attending a failed train. The benefits that went with the job, such as the roster with 11 days off every 3 weeks was also a huge plus, enabling me lots of time with my young family. Plus being able to ride to work on a push bike has kept me fit for the last 5 years. Just a shame to be made redundant, from a job I was very good at, by management that spent no time at all with me, and didnt take customer (train operators) satisfaction into consideration. – less
