Employment

For over sixty years, LMI Aerospace, Inc., has been a leading supplier of high quality, close –tolerance aluminum and specialty alloy components, primarily for the commercial and defense aerospace industries.  LMI has 27 locations throughout the United States, Mexico, Australia, England, and Sri Lanka with our Corporate Headquarters located in St. Charles, MO.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Unlike some manufacturers who simply "ride the tide" of the industry, hiring when business is booming and down-sizing when the economy tightens up, our focus is on long-term success. We seek strategic, long-term business relationships with our customers; a balance of industry sectors (commercial, defense, business jet, etc.); and selective domestic and international suppliers to help ensure our viability in a highly cyclical industry. We take pride in the longevity of our work force, our goal of job security, and the contributions we make to our communities.

A STAKE IN THE OUTCOME

We believe all employees should share in our success, and we provide:
Profit Bonus Plan - bonuses are achieved and increase as we hit and exceed our target profits.
Plant Specific Incentives - rewards may be earned for achieving specific goals in areas such as safety, scrap reduction, on-time delivery, etc.
Stock Ownership - LMI stock may be awarded and/or purchased through the Profit Sharing and 40l(k) Plan. Employees currently own over 30% of LMI stock.

WE HAVE A TEAM APPROACH

Our employees are organized in work teams and have a high degree of control over their work processes. They are involved in many aspects of our business and we recognize the stake they have in LMI’s success.

Flexibility is key as we strive to continuously improve our products, processes, and service. Therefore, cross training is essential, as is the desire and ability to learn and improve. Collaboration, participation, and cooperation are required of all employees.

ADVANCEMENT

We post available jobs at all our plants and encourage employees to seek new LMI opportunities, and/or to recommend friends for employment at our company.

As a growing company, we strive to promote from within, as well as bring in new people with different skill sets and perspectives. We value our employees.

At LMI, we value the skills, ideas, and opinions our employees bring to the operation. Pay and advancement opportunities are based on skills and performance, rather than seniority, and employees are encouraged to take part in the various training and education programs we offer.

SAFE WORK ENVIRONMENT - We work together to achieve a safe and healthy environment for all. Through our safety teams and the involvement of all employees, we define safe work practices, processes, and behaviors to meet our goal of zero accidents and zero injuries.

CAREER AND EDUCATION - We offer a career, not just a job, and want to help you achieve your goals now and in the future. We offer tuition assistance for outside education as well as internal training opportunities.
