AVN TECH (Former Employee) – Comox Valley, BC – 31 August 2018
Wages are low...not a good place to be if your an apprentice AME or licensed...time on AC isnt reconized by transport canada...your M1/M2 rating will not remain current as well. Common sense is out the window when working for IMP/Canadian Armed Forces. Resources waisted...piles of money waisted...Inhouse type course is useless anywhere else other then with IMP... Older work force ...mostly ex military which are retiring...Company does not replace employees after this point leaving more work on the shoulders of those who remain although the government has already paid for a certain number of people to maintain the AC...Meaning IMP is making more money with less people. Forced overtime...little compensation... You would make more with half the stress as an auto mechanic. Heavy turn over of commerical engineers as the wages are bad...work enviroment poison....the secret is out ....more commercial guys quiting...no one applying.... IMP used to recruit ex military ...but that resource has dried up and people are remaining in the forces as they must put in 25 years to recieve a full pension....plus they pay better ...with a better pension and benefits.
Portfolio is very old and has never been properly maintained and you have to operate on a shoe-string budget in a demanding environment. Portfolio is also very scattered; ie, residential, commercial, etc. with no real rhyme or reason. They also made me cancel my vacation 2 days before one time and I lost about 500 bucks on a deposit for a getaway I had planned. Manager was also extremely unprofessional.
Bad management, take your vacation days last minute
Cormorant Program (Former Employee) – Halifax Airport – 30 May 2018
The pay was ok, benefits were normal (Like most other companies) Management is a joke, if your not family or family friend you dont move up. When I got hired it took almost a month before my training was scheduled. When I first arrived, I was told that no department gets along with any other. They all blame each other if something fails. They had maybe 2 Women who were in management positions.
All in, if you go to work, put your head down and just do what your told its an ok job.
I had no prior knowledge or experience in aircraft repair and mod design or drafting. It was a steep learning curve at first. With help from supervisors and experienced staff, I was able to develop technical writing skills and drafting skills that follow stringent aircraft specifications.
Not providing (Former Employee) – Halifax, NS – 20 April 2018
People you work with are usually good. But be careful of snakes in the grass. Many stories came out once I was there about how they have little respect for employees, will terminate you without notice, no reasons provided. Big top management and directors are a joke. If you’re not family or friends forget about advancement. Very male driven environment.
Former ramp attendant (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 31 March 2018
If you need a job, then OK go for it. IMP, Innotech, Execaire. It is all the same place. They put a lot of effort into telling you what a wonderful place it is but they do little to make it so. Your problems start even before you get in. Park in the muddy field across the street. The work is interesting but that wears off quickly. You are treated as a number and heaven help you if you step out of line. They do ensure that everything is legal and will tell you so. It is not illegal to be arrogant and somewhat abusive. There is a fine line and they know exactly where that line is. Management is poor to fair, depending on who it is. It seems the higher up the ladder they are, the worse they are. Lots of egos. The good ones all left long ago.
