You get to learn different facets of composite manufacturing operations here, which is a nice thing.
Has a generally nice working culture where people care for one another (there are exceptions, but good for the most part).

There are slow times but there also are hectic times, just like anywhere else you'd go.

Relation between management and core work force is sub-par, there seems to be a disjoint there.

Compensation is poor compare to other competitors.

Favoritism is also apparent.

Hard to advance or grow due to many factors, but the biggest reason is that there isn't anywhere to go up, and there definitely isn't much money available.

Good work life balance though.

In summary, lots to learn and lots to do but not good in terms of compensation and advancement.
Pros
Good work life balance
Cons
Compensation, lack of growth/advancement

As a composite and sheet metal technician, I applied my experience and education to complete repairs on aircraft parts according to the corresponding drawings and repair manuals. Most repairs I did are for parts constructed from composite materials, but I also have experience in repair of metal structures as well.

It was at this job that I obtained skills such as work ethic, organization, collaboration and of course technical skills such as tool use and various safety training.

Worked at Comtek for 5 years, great people, flexible start times, clean and safe environment. If you are a hard worker and reliable there was lots of opportunity to learn more, I worked in floors and repairs. Not making huge money but got 3 pay raises over 5 years. only left to shorten my commute.

In the beginning its pretty good but slowly it starts to show it true colurs. pay is less than most places like them, the training is terrible your lucky if you get real training on something and not left to figure it out yourself. There is major favoritism going on there. No room for advancement there are guys who have been there for 15 plus years and not gotten anywhere.

This company is very misleading the pay is not even close to what is posted they use it to bring in more people they are not willing to pay more then 16 to 17 lucky for 18 some of there employees that have been there for 10 years make 20 dollars a hour and if you mentioned the ad they say it's a mistake and they don't make much in profits. It's a aerospace company they are making money just never enough for the executives as the way for most of the company's these days. Place looks very clean and safe to work.
Pros
Clean
Cons
Poor pay
