IT SOUNDS LIKE A WONDERFUL PLACE TO WORK. REGARDLESS OF THE JOB. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTREGUED BY AIR TRAVEL AND HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO WORK IN THE SYSTEM. HOWEVER, ONE THING ALWAYS LED TO ANOTHER AND I NEVER PERSUED IT. NOW, AT 72, I GUESS THERE IS NOTHING AVAILABLE FOR ME, BUT LET ME SAY THIS, IF I HAD IT TO DO ALL OVER AGAIN, KNOWING WHAT I KNOW NOW, I'D BE APPLYING FOR IT IN A HEARTBEAT. THE BENNEFITS ARE 2ND TO NONE. I WORKED 17 YEARS FOR THE CONNECTICUT DEPT OF CORRECTIONS AND EXCEPT FOR BEING INJURED, I WOULD STILL BE THERE. I SLIPPED ON GLARE UNTREATED ICE AND DAMAGED MY BACK . BUT AFTER THE BACKGROUB=ND CHECK I HAD TO GO THROUGH, I WOULD HAVE PROBABLY BEEN ABLE TO HIRE IN AT ANY ONE OF THE ABOVE. ANY ONE APPLYING FOR WORK HERE IS APPLYING FOR A SOUND FUTURE.
It is amazing who gets hired for government or government contractors jobs nowadays considering they perform background investigations and have stringent work requirements. In the past, you were tested with your test score, previous work experience, education, and job evaluations counting towards a rating. A best qualified list (BQL) was made up of those with the highest ratings and only those on the BQL were considered preferred applicants. I guess like in all things now, it is who you know or who you have slept with and not what you know. Perhaps that is why our government is having so many problems?.

i worked and retired at boeing as an engineer. It is a great place to work
Know a fellow who has all the certification required for working on all aspects of aviation maintenance and repair. He has had to move around a lot, following jobs provided by 'contractors', as this industry, like many others, out source stuff in a plan to deny benefits to employees. He applied and recently was interviewed by Boeing. They offered him a job... doesn't require any certification, and would represent a $10/hr pay cut, plus he has to sign an agreement he will not apply for a better job within the company for a year (all new hires are thus limited, they told him). While he would like the stability they claim, it is hard to take a job that pays 2/3's of your accustomed pay check, and the fact this job will not enhance his resume also troubles him. The good news is: although he can find few stable companies, he has no problem finding jobs, something many Americans, unfortunately, can no longer say.
It is amazing to read about the complainers comments. It is always someone else to blame for their failures. It is never their problems always someone else. I worked there 34 years and was treated with fairness every step of the way. One of the truely innovative companies in the world. There is more advanced technology going on there than all the high tech companies added together.
"These seven affinity groups collectively have more than 90 local chapters: The Boeing American Indian Society, Asian-American Professional Association, Black Employees Association, Employees Ability Awareness Association, Association of Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgender Employees & Friends, Hispanic Employees Network and Women in Leadership".What, nothing for Anglo-Americans or men? That's racist and sexist.By the way, my brother worked for Boeing in Everett WA for a while, until they let a ton of workers go. He was then offered his old job back at a lesser salary. Yeah, real great company to work for.
I would suggest you start your own group... for angry white men who feel sorry for themselves. Something like 'Casper's Honky Club', maybe... and don't forget the hand painted sign on the door, "No Chicks Allowed".
I ahve worked at Boeing for 26 years, nepetism is rampant at Boeing if you are a manager no problem your whole family will get a management job or a T&O job. If you are an unknown trying to get hired good luck. They are the worst company I have worked at when it comes to hiring for preferred treatment.
Boeing co. is a good co. if you can market your self every 5 years or so when your job ends it the same as lockheed or any other defence job they last for a bit then you need to find a new job with-in the company. I mananged to hold on for 17 years at lockheed looking for a new job about every 5 years or so with-in lockheed. so good luck
