The staff was great to work for. We had tool box meetings every day. It was fast paced at times. We worked the hours we got the job done.We had alot of warehouses there and I worked in all Of them.
Alot of overtime worked
Some long hours.
Reasonable conditions of salary, working hours and holidays. Bonuses and free company shares are a plus. Very inefficient workflow and customer billing procedures. Very inefficient technical parts and tool control procedures. No training in the use of specialized database and project planning software the could improve job tracking and billing issues.
Rostered day off every fortnight (by EBA)
Rapid & constant project management turnover.
I had to alter the para shoots and then sign each and every repair what I have done at the end of the day. I also made backpacks and and folders and lots of other things if I had to. It was a nice atmosphere to work with the coronals ,sarges, and other army boys .I learned allot and they were very sportive.

Jobs at BAE Systems
An over indulgence in safety. No formal training program's for new staff or when staff are moved. Staff always last on vital training program lists due to being contractors. Building and machinery just passing standard. Staff required to daily mechanical checks on machinery when not qualified. Repairs and upgrades on machinery, vehicles and office equipment always of a long duration. Standards and expectations for and of staff not of an even level.
Free coffee, short day on Friday
The use of ex military personnel
BAE Systems is a great place to work I have had the great pleasure of working with a vast variety of different people and BAE Systems have provided me with the opportunity for upgrading my skills throughout my 12.5 years I've been there for thus far. My day varies each day with different managers requesting different requirements. I enjoy my position but am looking to move forward with my career.
great people to work with
not many at all. at the moment job security is paramount for me.
started work and worked until break times,We all had dead lines to make .I learned to work with hundreds of people in stead of just 3 people.I had no worries with Management ,If they were under pressure It just meant I was as well.Co-workers we all have our moments ,I would never let some ones bad day affect me I just continue with my work.The hardest part of the Job was saying good bye to everyone when they made me and 50 others redundant.I found the most enjoyable part of the job was learning about tanks and working on them and the carriers ...
bq when a great job was completed
no cons, 40 hrs per week and friday overtime helped me alot
A typical day at work would start at 0730 with initiating all the test equipment needed for the day then checking with the team leader if there were any special or urgent jobs required.Next would be a communication with other company areas to coordinate use of other shared test equipment.Then testing circuit cards and wiring assemblies from multiple projects for most of the day.Writing and printing test reports and test failure reports as I went along.Prior to the end of the day at 1600 my time would be taken up fault finding and completing test logs.Ive learnt a lot in how to communicate and work with anyone from micro managers to away you go and let me know only if theres a problem managers.Ive also learnt how to critique and rewrite test procedures with engineers with the view that anyone off the street can do the test.Management on the whole were quite good except for the fact they were constantly under pressure to find work and as a consequence had little time for the small things needed for the workers.My co-workers were a great team and great fun to work and socialise with. Each had their expertise and in turn was utilized to get the job done.The hardest part of the job was trying to keep to an ever changing schedule and filling in time sheets utilizing the full day when there was no work but the most fullfilling part of the job was succeeding in this and keeping the failure rate to a minimum.
working with a good team with excellent conditions
bad job security, with a constant threat of retrenchments.
