Do these reviews help you learn more about working at AQUILA?
As a management consultant, the work is always performed in the client's office. The most significant learning was communication with the team that extended from the factory floor to the director. The most rewarding part of the job is always achieving goals and customer satisfaction.
Leadership was not trustworthy. There was tension ever day at work as the employees were let in go in large groups. You were instructed to pack up your personal items and sit at your desk waiting to be escorted from the building. Terrible times
It's a bad company to work for. There is not room for advancement unless you are related to upper management. The Directors are not professional. The company overall is not organized. The pay is minimum wage and they took my hours away from me because the company wasn’t doing so well financially
Flexible work hours
there’s nothing good about working here
I thought i was going for a office based marketing role when being interviewed in heels they had me walking around all day going door to door. Its door to door sales working from 10am till 9pm, unsociable hours and unrealistic expectations. After 2 weeks i left and never got paid.
I worked for about a year and half for Aquila and had great rapport with many collegues. It is a company that has grown fast and people fell into managerial positions that do not have the skill to do so. Perfect example was my direct supervisor (Financial Controller) who could be highly unappropriate and who on one occasion was physically aggressive towards me (he jumped up and got into my personal space) and called me the b word whilst in a team meeting. He apologised by text message! I left.
No people skills
My hours were typically 08.00 - 16.30 Monday to Friday and we helped the RAF train future Air Traffic Controllers. We worked as required and to a time when the job was done. The staff all worked together very well and professionally to provide the students with an experience as close to the real thing as we could achieve. The job paid well and allowed for 1 hour unpaid break during the day as well as 29 days holiday a year including bank holidays. 15 days are nominated by the RAF due to the school shutting down once a year. It has allowed me to develop my social skills, communicating my ideas and thoughts as well as my planning skills (creating challenging scenarios for the students) The hardest part of the job can be dealing with many requirements at the same time, often talking to 2 occasionally 3 people at a time to make sure the exercise run smoothly. Chaotic and stressful conditions can lead to mistakes and part of my role was to make sure these were minimalised to a point were both the student and instructor were not even aware something had gone wrong. I most enjoy the rewards of seeing a student develop and pass to become Air Traffic Controllers or even instructors themselves and to be given thanks for my part in helping them advance in their careers.
Good work time - 8-4 - 5 days a week
Can be stressful
