great people and environment

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Well paid, responsible job, good career prospects pre COVID of course. The people you work with make the job. You are given and expect to give support to others, a selfish person wouldn't last in this career. The hours of work can be demanding especially nightshift which is now proven to reduce life expectancy.

Great place to work. Been there for 30 years

Typical day includes maintenance and servicing of Qantas and other operators aircraft Learnt many skills including time management team work and communication skills Hardest part of the job is dealing with unfavourable weather conditions Best part of my work is the supportive workers and management that I am involved with

Worked in Fibre Glass section mainly

Good bunch of blokes to work with. Management can be painful sometimes and the effort to retain the apprentices once they finish is fairly poor to say the least.

Be prepared. Study hard

I’m in Engineering so training is invaluable gives you skills for life. Upon gaining type licences, your pay increases dramatically. Shift work is ok as you can work your lifestyle around your shift

Very positive company to work for

Did an apprenticeship with QANTAS. Awesome place to work. Very well organised . Colleagues are helpful and supportive. Learned a lot. Work life balance is great. 4 days work and 5 days of.Interesting work on high tech machines.


Work life balance


Only in major Australian cities. Not possible to combine with a rural life style.

Challenging with job satisfaction and recognition.

For many years we were considered "World's Best " in Engineering and our reputation was second to none. Staff were well trained and proud of 'our' company. We had respect from fellow employees and the public. The past 10 years has seen a major transformation in the company direction through 'new age' management. This has led to a reduction in training, skills and job security and as well as confidence in current management. Many jobs have now been sent offshore and skills and quality have been impacted. Legacy engineers are proud of our past achievements but the determination by the company to reduce costs and seek alternate , cheaper manpower overseas, has seen the loss of "worlds best practice" and public satisfaction. It is a great diverse company to work for, if you are not in the firing line. It offers many opportunities to grow your skills; meet and work with some very talented people. It places 'Safety' before 'Schedule' to ensure we all go home each day to our families. It ensures we all get to celebrate the company achievements and continually challenges us to grow and improve. Our rewards are recognition of a job well done. I would always encourage people to apply to this great Australian company.


Talent pool, staff travel benefits, well paid position with responsibilities.


Early starts in harsh conditions to meet schedule

Fair with room for improvement

Shift work in a typical day lots of things to do and learn. There are areas that would benefit in improvement through closer collaboration of different people from different parts of the organisational hierarchy,
