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.
Lack of benefits and unhealthy overnight 12 hour schedule
Data Telemetry Operator / Data Reduction Analyst (Former Employee) – Mirable, Quebec – 25 August 2017
A very rewarding time was spent learning and growing there. The C series and All the other projects I was able to work on really gave me a sense of pride and accomplishment. It was sad that the C series did not last longer in Mirable, Quebec..
I have been an intern at Bombardier for over 3 years now. I have had the opportunity to work with many different people on many different teams. The workload is manageable and the people are very helpful. It's a great place to intern.
I felt that the upper management at Bombardier was not accountable enough for decisions and the direction that they brought their respective departments There were a lot of under qualified people that were wrongfully promoted and it hurt the business. However, I will say that Bombardier was a good place to learn, especially for engineers at the beginning of their careers.
Very good product, Good place to learn, Good Benefits
This job was one that I truly evolved from sheet metal mechanic to airframe mechanic to test flight department. I very much enjoyed the atmosphere. September 11th catastrophe really impacted the careers at Bombardier. Also I relocated to Toronto.
