Productive MRO facility
Process Engineer (Current Employee) –  Richmond, BC10 September 2018
I worked for the company when it was Vector Aerospace. Management was great and I enjoyed working there. Unfortunately, shortly into my first year of full-time employment, Vector was bought by StandardAero and later the facility was shut down. Naturally, morale has been low ever since. I cannot give a fair review of this workplace

NDT/Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, Manitoba3 August 2018

Good culture, abysmal pay
Aircraft Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB31 January 2018
The company in years past had a small business feel. It didn't pay the best, but the structure of the company and home like feel kept people around. Lately however it feels cold and corporate. Job security is no longer a good feeling and the pay has remained poor.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Poor wage

Keep looking
Admin (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB17 July 2017
Management is truly unqualified right from the top down and don't expect HR to care because they will only provide lip service while thinking there is no problem.

There is a good reason why they are always looking, qualified workers know that they will be better appreciated elsewhere.
Pros
There are some great people there. Sadly, they all get treated poorley.
Cons
Inexperienced management, poor training and a buddy system that ensures you have no future there.

Great place to work but pay was a little low
Gas Turbine Repair and Overhaul Technician (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB14 August 2015
Standardaero was a great place to work and I enjoyed my time there. The people are great and there is a lot of opportunity to learn new things. The job was fun and the management helps you to succeed and grow. Benefits were great and vacation was plentiful. Unfortunately, their weak point is their wages. Could make more working many other places.
Pros
Job stability, management, culture, benefits
Cons
Low Wage

Quality Inspector, SCA (Former Employee) –  Richmond, BC25 September 2014
Great place to work. I was involved in a variety of tasks within the logging industry. Most of the work was hi-lead logging using choker and grapple yarders.
Most of the jobs where spent in remote locations at logging camps.

standardaero Ltd
Detail Ispector (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB19 July 2012
It is a very well maintained facility and a close family working environment, everybody is always willing to help you. It is very team oriented and the hardest part of the job is not being able to learn fast enough and leran new skills. The work environment teaches you to take your time and don't rush, they would prefer you do things right the first time.
Pros
atmosphere, benefits and job security...also lots of free lunches
Cons
the slow process it takes for you to be able to work by yourself..
