Millwright (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 3 June 2013
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Vector Aerospace, a great employer, good benefits all around.
One drawback, whilst I enjoyed my job, I felt I was not challenged enough.
When I asked for a raise I was told because I did not have my MRO (maintenance repair and overhaul) qualification, therefore I could not get a raise, even though I was hired on as a Millwright not an MRO tech.
When I found a new job and gave my 2 weeks notice, my manager asked me if they gave a raise would I stay? I found that very interesting.
As a whole, I would recommend the company as a good employer, a good retirement job for someone.
If I had a shorter commute I would have let some things not bother me, but the commute of 1 hr in the morning and sometimes upto 4 hrs on the way home, kind of made the little things snowball.
Great benefits and perks, staff gym, cafeteria, internet cafe, clean environment, no outside work.
85 km one way commute, rate of pay was not competitive with industry standards.
