1.) The onsite food vendors. Loved Maui Mike's! 2.) San Antonio is a great city. Not too small, but not gigantic.
1.) NOT ENOUGH WORK TO GO AROUND. The whole crew gets sent home early, usually after lunch, and are sometimes given a three or four day weekend. This ties in with the one star rating for 'Career Opportunities' because There are NO CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN SAN ANTONIO. Why? Because you don't get enough work to get anywhere in the company. Coincidentally, this also ties in with the two star rating for 'Compensation and benefits'. No work = no compensation. THE PAY IS GOOD ONLY FOR CONTRACTORS. Direct-hires are paid an insultingly low wage (which is, I'll admit, way better than it was back in '16). 2.) NO 'WORK/LIFE BALANCE'. Guaranteed, you will spend more time at home than you will at work. How can you balance work and life when you don't really get to actually work? Kinda 70-30. Sort of. Maybe 80-20, I don't know. 3.) Leads are indifferent to your presence. They really don't care if you're there or not, and will roll their eyes at you when, God forbid, they have to actually do their jobs. 4.) Low confidence in leadership quality. Only leads can access applicable maintenance manuals and other pertinent information (seriously? WHY?), and they CONSTANTLY give you the WRONG maintenance manuals. This means more time is wasted because you have to explain to A LEAD why you can't use a B/E Aerospace maintenance manual when the seats are made by Zodiac. Which one of us is a lead again? When you inform the leads the reference material they printed can't be used, they give you that deer-in-a-headlights look. Lead: 'What do you mean it's not the right manual?' Me (in my head): ......'What do you mean 'What do you mean'? How do you not know this by now?' This has happened on THREE SEPARATE OCCASIONS. 5.) Basic necessities UNAVAILABLE from the tool crib/tool room. 6.) I gave a one star rating for 'Culture and Values' because the only culture that seems to be valued is passing the buck. 7.) I gave a two star rating because there's plenty of diversity, but not much inclusion.

Pay higher when you have a cert?
No trust in employees. The head loves to micro manage. People who have worked for more than 10-30 years over there are pretty narrow minded. No work life balance and gotta record time in and out???? LOL.

Good employee benefits and salary.
It is a common practice to work overtime so there is not much work life balance. Furthermore, there is a high risk of injury due to the nature of the job (Aircraft Maintenance). Since the merge of the sub companies, the job may involve you to go to different locations. Also, some employees are unable to speak proper English so it’s hard to communicate.1
