Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON14 March 2013
A low stress company to work for when stationed at the Ottawa base/hangar. Life in the hangar is steady with few pressing deadlines and a wide variety of work. I arrive at 7am, have a half hour lunch and leave at 3pm. The mechanics share good camaraderie, and I have been given the task of crew chief on many heavy maintenance projects. Hangar management is laid back and we all generally get along. The most difficult part of the job is being sent out of country on field projects for 2 - 3 months at a time, but in doing so I am able to take 3 months vacation every autumn.

The hangar/aircraft maintenance department is somewhat like its own entity at times. Outside the hangar the company management is poor. Low wages, poor decision making, promising clients services they cannot deliver and often very poor living conditions on field projects makes an employee feel unimportant and under appreciated. Due to these poor habits and extreme micro-managing, there is much animosity throughout the company towards management.
3 month vacation each autumn, camaraderie with collegues in hangar
very low wages for work required (long periods overseas in poor working and living conditions), extreme micro-managing, poor decision making habits in management, impression that employees are expendible, etc.
