12 hours shifts on a 5-5-4, or 7 day on -7 day off schedule
Engineering Specialist - Structures (Former Employee) –  Mirabel, QC6 April 2018
Could be stressful at times and boring at others. The job was the overnight on-station structural repair designer for Bombardier's worldwide commercial fleet. Communications and resolution required consultation with multi-national customers and on-call company signatories. CATIA V4 was the go-to platform, with a slow integration of V5 in this group.
The work was very interesting at times, with direct access to the aircraft in various stages of assembly/completion. Canadian co-workers were from many nations, affording one to interesting and rewarding experiences.
After six years of dedicated service, OT was drastically cut and all hours paid at straight time.
Pros
Multi-cultural immersion
Cons
Lack of benefits and unhealthy overnight 12 hour schedule

Great place to work
Softwear verificator (Former Employee) –  Dorval, QC5 February 2018
It's a big company with a lot to offer in terms of salary, benefits and advancement. The atmosphere at work was generally a good one. My managers were competent and approachable. The only real negative is, much like any employee in the aeronautics sector could confirm, job security is lower than other fields of work.

Not for the faint of heart
Cutomer Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Dorval, QC22 January 2018
Difficult work environment. From silly things like a massive, massive parking lot (think walking outside on bitter cold days) to high stress demands where management appears to be in a panic mode to make their numbers. Constant threat of layoffs. Overtime is expected as part of commitment to working here for most departments. Management is tethered by cell phones and expected to be on call 100% of the time. Only thing that is really great is benefits: pension, Employee bonuses. Salaries are a little higher than elsewhere. You pay for it in other ways.
Pros
salary, benefits
Cons
contant layoff threats, extremely demanding results

Poor corporate culture
Contract Administrator (Former Employee) –  St Laurent, QC18 January 2018
Poor corporate culture: people eat food on their desks with wide variety of smells and aromas around the office. A lot of gossiping among the colleagues. Managers talk on perverted topics without even paying attention to the fact that they are in a professional environment.

No janitors: employees have to clean their garbage themselves. Management employees is afraid of losing their jobs which propels them to act opportunistically: backstabbing is a common practice. No team spirit whatsoever.
Pros
salary
Cons

Experience will vary according to where you are working
Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC15 January 2018
Its such a large enterprise that the experience will vary widely between different divisions. I was able to work in Product Development in most areas (Business, Commercial, Completions) and different phases in the life cycle (Development, sustaining) and focus (Support to production, support to field). Generally was a positive experience with very good colleagues. Management varies, some are micro-managers and can treat senior people as if they are entry level. Too many useless initiatives (Achieving Excellence) that try to drive the culture but end up being a waste of time. Senior Management is distant and does not inspire confidence, but is an improvement over previous family-run company. Generally the work-life balance is good, benefits are good but in recent years have been tightened in attempts to control costs.
Pros
Professional, Good colleagues, can be interesting
Cons
Bureaucratic, Senior management lacklustre

Mechanical Test Technician (Current Employee) –  Thunder Bay, ON19 October 2017
A typical day at work is different all the time for my position but there are days where we have no work. Senior Management makes some pretty stupid and horrible decisions a lot. How they come up with some of their solutions is beyond me.
Pros
Paid lunches, Overtime, Great benefits, Home everyday
Cons
Unqualified people performing work. 3 shift rotation

Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC18 October 2017
My 25 year job experience at Bombardier Aerospace was exceptional. A typical day at work began with our daily morning meeting (DMM). These meetings were held in order to have the team together for 15 minutes every morning and discuss any critical issues for the day, who will be out of the office, vacation etc. Our Manager would chair the meetings.
The workplace culture was amazing. Very professional, diverse, and hard working employees. My Manager was kind, attentive, fair, and had deadlines were on top of the list along with Customer satisfaction.
The hardest part of my job was dealing with our Finance dept and billing.
The most enjoyable part of my job was dealing with my worldwide Customers on a daily basis. I built this special bond, trust and friendship with many customers. My efforts resulted in excellent customer satisfaction.
Pros
Excellent Benefits, Vacation
Cons
Too much outsourcing
