Reviews by Airbus graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.2GradAustralia surveyed 10 graduates working at Airbus. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 10 responses.
- I was able to work on two state of the art helicopters, learn a new discipline and gain experience within an engineering team
- The inclusive nature of the work culture
- Great team environment Many social perks
- Get to do real engineering, calculations, design, etc. Working to maintain and enhance a real aircraft. Get to see things in real life, can walk down to the hangar whenever you need to.
- Very interesting and challenging work, with the aircraft on site in our facility.
- At times it was hard to find tasks as the role of an intern within the company was not explicitly defined.
- Some jobs are not so interesting and can be quite dry.
- Nothing really, it was a great experience.
What insiders say about…
We design and stress aircraft structure and repairs in the course of maintenance, investigate fleet wide issues, manage maintenance publications and support the RAAF on the flight line.
Everyone is very supportive and happy to answer questions/provide help where needed. The overall company culture is inclusive
The interview itself was well-run. It was a group interview with three stages: watching a safety presentation, team-work lego building exercise, and a one-on-one interview with a staff member.
Airbus has completely flexible work hours for their work experience program. During holidays it is usually full time and during semester you can work as much as you can handle, depending on your university workload.
We get access to a lot of defence-related perks, such as discounted gym memberships, financial institutions, etc. Our company is associated with Bupa and provides corporate access (around a 5% discount with access to corporate plans).
The managers are organised and easy to communicate with over email, but are difficult to access in person and often have little communication with the employees
Training programs are usually a course up to one week either somewhere interstate or locally through an external provider. They are provided to individuals as needed to maintain the skills required in the team and are usually in technical areas such as FEA, Catia/CAD, Statics for Repairs, composites etc.
It takes several years for graduates to be considered for promotion. After a certain level promotion is dependent on positions becoming vacant. At this level there is little turn-over so it can take a long time.
To my knowledge the company promotes diversity and supports all of the above groups at least as much as any other respectable, large employer.
There is local support to attend STEM and other professional events, however it is driven by motivated employees with an interest or passion in the area.
Location is far from the city, but is good because it is at the RAAF base. Hangar is right downstairs, so everything is accessible. Offices are good, a common floor with cubicles (large and shared by 2 people - so good for social aspect). Great coffee machines, etc.Join us to bookmark!
