Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s Assistant (Former Employee) – Uplands, ON – 16 November 2016
I worked at building U-61 at the Flight Research Laboratory and it was fantastic. All of the staff was very friendly and knowledgable and was always there to help you.
I've never been one to enjoy doing work or to wake up in the morning and think "Heck yeah! Work is gonna be great" but everyday that I would make my way to the hangar, you could catch me with a smile plastered across my face on the 97 bus arriving at the airport.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff + foosball, ping pong and badminton at lunch
It's the government so there will always be some sort of BS on the go

worked with the 3.5m high speed windtunnel, interesting work at times! also very boring with very little to Do! average work week you could do in a day! management was very distance, supervisors made a lot of promises that they were unable to keep! still great job with very little work and high pay!
Very informational department and lots of opportunities...

Friendly morning and afternoon greetings Different filing system, bit of challenge sometimes Hardly ever saw any management. co-workers were on constent rotation research of data entry and content was the reason I enjoyed this job
no comments on hardest part of the job
with no instructions job could be a bit of challenge at times
Administrator (Former Employee) – Ottawa – 16 July 2014
- Lack of management - Management constantly gossips - Rules are bent for favorite employees - They outright try to make things bad for employees they want to fire but can't, so they attempt to make people quit - The Union will not help in matters because they do not want to "rock the boat with golden people"
