Pros & Cons

  • I enjoyed working at the hanger with the major equipment onsite
  • Flexible hours, great mentors, challenging tasks
  • Reasonably flexible work hours
  • I enjoy my role and hours are flexible
  • Exposure to industry and professional engineering workplace.
  • Located near the airport
  • Overwhelming learning curve at the start
  • A steep learning curve. Not a lot of easily accessible information on full processes/documents and what they are used for. Also lots of acronyms to begin with. However, as I said, everyone is willing to help and support you if you need it.
  • Slow moving projects that take months to complete can be frustrating - it is difficult to drive change when the focus is on supporting systems rather than technical assessment and design.

Work Hours
Very flexible. I was studying at the time, and my manager was happy for me to come in as often as I could. On holidays, I was in every day. I often began work at 7am and finished at 3:30/4pm. This fit well into my schedule.
