Highly Stressful, Very Demanding High Burn Out Rate
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  APISeptember 17, 2017
One could expect a typical day at API Heat Transfer to be very busy and fast paced.. A good part of the morning you can expect to read emails to mid morning. Answering help tickets and phone calls from anyone of the locations nationally and globally. laptop, servers, workstations, switches, all need daily attention on one level or another. Expect 12 hour days and working some weekends

good place to work
AA Machinist (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYApril 6, 2017
warm in the winter hot in the summer, you work alone with responsibility of producing a quality produce.
No engineering support on the third shift where I worked.
It was a closed shop (union only) work was mostly dependent on the oil industry.
Most of our work came from China, and abroad.
There was an abundance of overtime work available.
Pros
cafateria in house

Chronic days of due to lack of work then when there is work they'll expect six days a week from you. There is no consistency and most will struggle to get hours. There has been no raises in three years. Management pretends to care sometimes then their true colors show.
Pros
If you can convert O2 to co2 and show up you have a job
Cons
You may not want that job as this is a toxic workplace and there is no way to advance

ridiculous politics and favoritism
Tester (Former Employee) –  testingAugust 11, 2015
anywhere from monthly to weekly harassment from a coworker, including hate crime harassment. same coworker sending his friends to retribution harass when you don't like his personal harassment. management doing nothing about it because his aunt is the HR manager. supervisor that will fire people they personally don't like, though their work is acceptable. keeping employees as temp (at a lower pay rate) for much longer than promised, 5-6 months instead of 3.
Pros
can't think of any
Cons
short breaks, healthcare, high employee turnover rate

Safe and productive workplace
EPG Bolted Radiator Assembly Crew Member (Former Employee) –  Franklin, WIJuly 27, 2015
Solid productive process with minimal workers at 60 hours/week.
I learned some new skills and made some new contacts.
When the oil prices dropped, our orders dropped with them.
Unfortunately, on 03/01/2015 we underwent a mass layoff by seniority.

Do not apply to this company! Terrible management and horrible culture.
Employee (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYAugust 8, 2013
Terrible company; full of liars and cheaters. Management is lazy, incompetent and will sabotage employees work to make themselves look better while expecting their employees to work seven days a week. They are a culture that promotes chauvinism and favoritism. The facility is filthy and in disrepair; even lighting in the offices does not work. Computer systems are obsolete. They provide almost no training or support to new employees and degrade them if they cannot perform to expectations. Treats union members like dirt. Do not even bother applying here. Very high employee turnover. Terrible benefits. Barely a 401k match.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

Not an honest productive workplace.
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYMay 9, 2012
A culture of making numbers look good even if underlying quality and amount of scrap was bad. Also not honest with government inspectors.
