work for them for two week and was let go right after my first rotation wasn't fair to be with them to be shown around and to perform the job that they wanted you too, Their isn't no proper training and basically throw into the job management isn't fair and lack of leadership isn't their the way i was let go wasn't right in my experience wont recommend to work for them and very toxic environment. As well for other airline employee who wanted to apply think first before you submit your resume.
housing flight and food cover
lack of training and very poor managerment
Good place to learn and gain experience. Some days were tough,shortage of staff was an issue but hiring more "was not in the budget" and sometimes PPE wasnt either. Many people had duct tape and staples holding their reflective vests together. Management was unfair, a group of employees was expected to do more than the ones sitting inside on couches during down time
room and board
Extremely interesting at first -- took over food services etc. from military in far north -- then challenging to be proactive and fulfill contract, as well as demonstrate opportunities for efficiencies and cost savings, in which military is not terribly interested. Still one of the best jobs I ever had.
Good pay, though so-so-benefits if not FT
Isolation for several weeks at a time (not in all jobs?)
A great company to work for with a good benefits package, you feel very accepted when you start. They are very firm on what your salary or hourly rate maybe, you can try and up it. But if they say that\s final then it's final. they will let you walk. The pay is competitive.
good work culture
I have known about CBO since the start up. But only worked for them for 5 1/2 years. Overall the management was good but some of the supervisors were lacking expertise.
Most of the time your a taxi service for military personnel bringing them to appointments or picking them up at airports in a minivan or a car. if you're not doing that then your detailing vehicles. Having an AZ license you're wasting away here. Great if you're retired. The people I work with a great helpful polite and professional. Every 5 weeks you work a 10-day schedule so you work a weekend. but you have two long weekends at the beginning and end of your cycle. There isn't much overtime but they say that there is some.
CBO offers a safe and challenging workplace. I can rely on my co-workers to provide safe working conditions. CBO offers the ability of advancement and the proper training for any duties that I may need to perform.
Free room and board for two weeks.
Being away from home.
I enjoyed the department I worked in and the working with the military very much. It has a huge learning curve but that keeps the day interesting. Things are always changing so being flexible is very important.
