Mechanic at URS
in Fort Hood, TX

"I have enjoyed working as a mechanic. Repairing something always gave me a great feeling of accomplishment. Never really hated anything about my job or being a mechanic. If I didn't enjoy what I did I would not have done it for thirty-five years. Hate is a strong word, there are things that I disliked. But those things are part of the job."

Mechanic at Mills Automotive Group
in Baxter, MN

"I love the challenge of being a repair Technician, with new challenges daily and sometimes even hourly. The down side is the monotony of doing general services one after another, or being pulled away from one job to do a service."

Mechanic at Cole Garage
in San Francisco, CA

"I love getting to work with cars. At Cole Garage there weren't many super cool or interesting things to work on; however, clients were generally really nice and it was rewarding to know that you helped them out when they needed it or got to have a nice conversation with them after fixing a problem they had. With that said, pay wasn't that great but the days usually weren't too taxing or long. I enjoy working with my hands and getting into technical issues and solving problems and helping people."

Mechanic at ERMC Security

"I enjoy being a Mechanic and Technician but not really enjoying being a Mechanic/Technician with ERMC. I have been told that rewards aren't given out nor are raises. Its a small very small chance that someone can move up in that company unless they're friends with the supervisor."

Mechanic at Aviation Quality Group
in Hebron, KY

Please give us a one liner to describe this review.

"Worst job I have ever had. Highly advise making last resort of desparation."

What do you like about working at Aviation Quality Group?

"The hours are really nice. 7:30am - 4:00pm unless there is overtime until 6:00pm which is mandatory."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Make this company your last resort worst case scenerio. May want to consider work outside of the field before joining this company. Brace yourself to see things you never thought happen in America in this day in age."

What don't you like about working at Aviation Quality Group?

"Complete lack of respect for all of the employees by the production manager. The people are treated like dirt. He believes every employee is trying to pull a stunt on him so he walks around looking for something to give employees grief about. They are time nazis, he makes a point to do a sweep through the break room the minute break is over and hassles anyone who might still be in there. There is no problem with interrupting breaks however. The micromanagement turns every small decision into a committee. They are cheap. Supplies that are needed for production are routinely canceled so workers do not have the supplies and consumables they need to do their job. They cut corners at every turn possible. If the EPA or OSHA came in, the shop would be closed in about five seconds.No positive reinforcement at all, but a surplus of grief. So morale is awful."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Fire the production manager. Incompetent. A perfect case of time gained ladder rungs. He has no business being a thousand miles from his position."
