“Working at Curtiss-Wright has offered me some really fantastic opportunities to work and collaborate with high-level and high-performing people both inside and outside of the company. At several points throughout my time with Curtiss-Wright, I’ve been able to make choices to direct my own career path. I get the most satisfaction out of being able to resolve issues for our customers that they aren’t able to get through on their own. The tools, knowledge, and experience available at Curtiss-Wright gives me the chance to do that often. I am continually impressed by Curtiss-Wright’s investment in its people. I’ve participated in several leadership and career development programs, which have led to meetings with and presentations for many of the company’s talented executive team. I’ve never had this kind of exposure while working with any other company.”

We apply teamwork, celebrate achieving goals and ensure the business continuity even during the day-to-day challenges. I have been working for Curtiss-Wright for almost ten years, and it has been a great experience. I’ve had triumphs and success, however with that, I’ve also experienced failures in which I was able to learn from. I enjoy interacting with different types of people providing them with assistance in different tasks. In addition, I love helping others which makes my day-to-day experience of work overall exciting. There is an expression that follows; 'Do what you love, and you will never have to work again' and I feel like I’ve found this in the Human Resources Department. It has been an honor to be a part of Curtiss-Wright. You can also count on all our staff, no matter the location and be able to achieve guidance along with your goals.”

Cesar Gonzales
“I've been a manager in quality for 17 years at CW and enjoyed several satisfactions in my career. In 2020 during the pandemic, I had the opportunity to help the company from different perspectives: due to the shortage of personnel I was planning and running production, inspection and shipping & receiving while keeping the same standards of quality and delivery expected by our customers. CW has helped me achieve my goals in the experiences I have in our day-to-day operations. The CW Learning Management System platform created a few years ago helps me keeping my license active as ASQ Certified Manager of Quality/Organizational Excellence. My major motivation for me to come to work every day is to greet our people, help them achieve their own goals and have the opportunity to teach them something new. This is a company where new grads can grow a career, where they can apply the knowledge acquired in college and, even, learn more from the experiences of their older colleagues.”

“My career highlight has been arriving to work every day with the understanding that I am a part of an excellent team that supports the U.S. Navy. The logistics team has opened my eyes to the other side of manufacturing. I have been able to grasp the totality of the effort that is invested in procurement and how to ensure our process has the right part at the right time to both our internal and external customers. 'Our Team' keeps me engaged. We are all from different backgrounds with different experiences that makes coming to work not only more fun, but we learn from each other in all areas that makes us an even more versatile. We know we have the support to work our way through anything together. I guarantee you will not be a part of a team that is more dedicated to supporting the U.S. Navy than our family here at Curtiss-Wright. Our vision is clear every day we come in to work and there is nothing more satisfying than a 'Team' all working toward one goal.”
