Worker (Current Employee) – Georgia – 18 March 2018
Typical work day is paper work and taking care of issues that arise from customer request to simulator issues.
Management is more that happy to help. Always greets you with a smile.
Work culture is very clicky, much like high school.
The hardest part about the job is showing up with a smile knowing that my schooling is going to waste and I'm stagnating, as well as pay is very low.
The best part of the job is that everything is climate controlled and if you like airplanes and flying this is a fun job. There is technology everywhere so tech buffs will love all the different PC's and OS's.
Very relaxed environment, friendly, easy to learn, everyone is halpful.
Low pay, only one raise per year, technology is dated.
PC Technician (Former Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – 5 March 2018
For my personality the job was a bit stressful, I liked the job, and the people. The hardest part of the job was the enforced quota for HD tickets no matter the difficulty of the task. There seem to be many strict and misleading policies, unspoken wrongs/personal pet peeves. I'm sure every department is different but there seemed to be a high level of stress with all the techs.
Instructor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – 24 February 2018
There going to ask you to sign a training contract. Few if any reputable airlines ever require these types of employement schemes. They must be common for corporate aviation. Take your skills to the major airlines if you want a solid career.
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – 19 February 2018
Although quick paced and demanding, it was a great place to work for a number of years. Lots of comaraderie and commitment to the mission. Changes in recent years have driven politics to an all time high and morale to an all time low. For a period of time the environment was downright toxic, although more recently there has been some improvement in that regard.
Lead Flight Instructor, SAT (Former Employee) – Vero Beach, FL – 17 November 2017
Good training for structure required for safe operations in flight and in aviation in general. Pay is low but fair when weighed against the name recognition for Flight safety within the industry, The benefits offered are some of the best in the industry and counter the low hourly rate.
Technology Training Specialist (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – 7 November 2017
FlightSafety International is a very good place to work. People are nice and supportive. The pay scale is slightly below market value. If you do your job well, you are fairly secure in your position. Not a lot of rapid advancement.
Deskside Support Technician (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – 3 July 2017
The Team is extremely professional. They respect each other's opinions and work very well together. In a typical day, I am working very closely with the team to ensure their computers and other technology are performing optimally. I've learned a great deal about how pilots are certified. The most enjoyable part of the job is collaborating with subject matter experts on the proprietary aspects of the company.
