What you see is what u get
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Sharonville, OH11 July 2019
Management is unreal company is very unorganized, racist, and unpredictible. No advancement unless your manager likes you and release you to the next department. The white employees can do what ever they want..black employees are held at higher standards....the tension in the place is unreal. I would not recommend this place to any minority...black and/or hispanic

Technician (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB26 May 2019
as a trainee going into an a big atmosphere like standard areo is not a fun time. Asking questions felt like it was frowned upon. like they say " theres no such thing as a stupid questions" just don't ask questions there. buncha know it alls. for the amount of work you do the pay isn't that great either .

Great company with bright future!
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TX22 May 2019
This is a great place to work that has employed people in San Antonio for 20 years and is growing very fast. Their culture is based on integrity, quality, safety and employee and customer focused. They keep the employees informed of trending company struggles or expedited increases from the customers. Teamwork is important to resolve issues or complete tasks or projects. With the growth came challenges with keeping up adequate workforce and training. The management was great as well as the people. The hardest part of the job was there never seemed to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. Very demanding, fast paced, stress with working with timing of funding from the government would not line up with the financial obligations to stakeholders.

It will be important to plan for retirements for the older workforce and training the next generation of both direct and indirect staffing to carry these contracts into the future.
Pros
Pay, management, stability, culture
Cons
Growing pains, succession planning

Cut throat// production warehouse
Classified (Former Employee) –  Miami, FL17 April 2019
Stay away from this place at all cost!! lol just awful unless you enjoy inhaling grit blast all day. Management is the most penny pinching management I've ever seen. Awful for career advancement due to favoritism. They don't drug test anyone there sometimes for over 10 months at a time.. no care for safety whatsoever and the warehouse is a dirt box
Pros
Weekends off
Cons
Dirt management

Management is unorganized.
Machinist, December (Current Employee) –  Kansas City, MO11 April 2019
The typical day at work is quick paced. The more you know, the more you may be asked to do in different work areas. I learned alot about grinding, stripping, washing, lapping, and repairing in the oil and gas department. Management is great about keeping up with employees but sometimes lack in communication about what needs to be done when they leave work. After first shift leaves things can become unorganized. The most enjoyable part of the job is being allowed to work as much overtime as you can handle.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Mandatory overtime can be required.

So much potential to be better
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OH8 March 2019
This company has so much potential to just be great to work for, but it falls short with many management issues, i.e. inexperience, short-sightedness, ego, etc. The company could seriously benefit from hiring an actual Industrial Engineer to help it out with its growing pains. And hiring more diversely in the management range could possibly help, as well.

The job itself is remarkably great, as are the people who work on the Shop Floor.
Pros
Pto, 401k, health benefits, good coworkers
Cons
Management team and Shop Floor layout

Management / Leadership is lacking
Sales and Marketing (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ23 January 2019
The company is only focused on the bottom line, EBITA. There is no general focus or care given to employees or customers. It is really disappointing. So many have worked for SAL their entire career and just don't realize how bad it is. In this case, tenure is bad. Senior leadership says, "We strive to be average."
Pros
Paid holidays
Cons
Lack of leadership, training, customer focus.

Great company to work for
Senior Master Sch (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TX6 January 2019
I also updated spreadsheets and reports in this position as a government contractor. Attended morning production meetings, updated production boards. Motivation meetings with cell leaders during the morning production meetings.

The directors were great at Standard Aero who encouraged collaboration.

The most difficult part of the job was meeting government timelines due to daily changes to the timelines.

Communicating with all personnel at Standard Aero.
