Maintenance Supervisor | Sydney, FL | May 27, 2019
Very competitive work force that were proud to work for the Australian iconas the rewards were great
Strong team culture and excellent management team. Training and development of staff was first class.I enjoyed working at Qantas Airways. In the mornings our team would load up a kind of baggage trolley where our large tool boxes were kept and hooked up to a Toyota landcruiser and we had our coffee and a tool box meeting and discussed our work package for the day and how we were going to achieve the outcomes We left went to the Sydney International Airport for the arrival o 4-8 aircraft to be serviced by our team. After each aircraft had been checked and serviced and tech log defects repaired or were reassigned at a later time due to time constraints we assisted the flight crew in the departure of the aircraft. Some aircraft required to be towed from the airport to the Qantas hangars for major rectification and we towed the aircraft in to the hangars and commenced rectification on various A,B,and C checks as required.

Aircraft Mechanic | Los Angeles, CA | Jul 4, 2019
Worst management
Pay rate lower than another companies, unfair pay rate for between employees. Management has racist. Stupid schedule that no one like for aircraft mechanics. They're abusing the employees in US. Need union in US
Aeronautical Engineer | Los Angeles, CA | Nov 29, 2018
Good place to get experience
A good place to gain experience. However there is a bias against the American engineers. Due to company politics , the qantas lax station suffers from poor management, engineers/mechanics are under paid and under trained in comparison to Australian counterparts as well as other airlines. The micro management style has led to a very low employee moral. The job itself is fun and enjoyable. The greatest challenge is dealing with management and the company's neglect of the American staff.

Aircraft Mechanic | Los Angeles, CA | Jul 14, 2018
Its an easy first job and career stepping stone
The Good; My fellow workers are great, and no graveyard shift. My time at Qantas gives me qualifications and experience to apply and work for an American based airline. The Bad; Management lack skills and are biased. The company is micromanaged by individuals all fighting for power and supremacy. There is no appreciation or respect for workers. Poor flight and medical benefits when compared to other airlines Minimal company training. Many senior workers are incompetent so I do not get the opportunity to learn much technical skills or aircraft system knowledge. My A&P is only a qualification at Qantas, it does not let me certify for my work. So you generally only do simple tasks. You need Australian licence qualifications to certify. The Ugly; Office and corporate staff all belittle and look down at us because we are only mechanics in coveralls.
ProsGreat Fellow Workers. Enjoyable work. No graveyard shift
ConsNarrow minded and Poor Management. Admin Staff think they are Managers
