Very interesting working with parts that will be entering your body
Production Worker (Former Employee), Collegeville, PAMarch 21, 2015
Worked for agency who I received Job from and was laid off after 6 months along with 9 other employees. Went to Job Fair Hosted at Accellent Inc. and had the expierence and was not called the agency told me later they don't like Rehiring people laid off. WHY did it have to do with work related, I would have been fired if that was the case. I think I should have at least been told why.
A day at work was interesting knowing the product I was working with and the reason for the product being built.
Management was very unproductive.
co-workers ok
Hardest part of Job. really wasn't.

Opprotunity for hire-minimal!
Machinist (Former Employee), Wheeling, ILMarch 9, 2015
Pros: clean work enviornment
Cons: they are extremley slow to hire any temps.
Accellent could be a great company if not for their policy on hiring the temporary employees.

I worked for this company for 2 years as a temp. That's right, 2 years, no joke. I asked repeatedly if the company was going to hire me, but nothing seemed to be in the works. This was the case with all the temps this company employees.

I was a very good worker, I knew my job very well, I was punctual, but none of this mattered. My boss had gone to human resources countless times on my behalf, yet he was unable to get me hired. I finally said enough was enough and found a job willing to hire me as a machinist.

my time at Accellent
Machine Operator / Finisher (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: all the hours i wanted
Cons: leaving for the day
I was able to work all the overtime I wanted. sometimes I would work up to 18 hours a day. I was taught many things about the process of machining parts from making it to finishing it. the management allowed us freedom to work as long as we got our work completed.my coworkers were very helpful in my training. The hardest part of the job for me was going home cause I loved it there. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with they all were so nice and helpful.

Not Worth Your Time
doesn't matter (Former Employee), Laconia, NHSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: plenty of free t-shirts
Cons: managment, dishonesty
I dedicated many years to this company with nothing in return. Preach advancement and open door policy. They pretend to hire internally for higher positions but are just putting employees on with the internal job posting. You are supposed to feel free to speak with management and management mocks and makes light of your problems. Better to not speak with them and stay out of their radar.

21st century slave shop
Inspector (Former Employee), Huntsville, ALAugust 7, 2014
Pros: it went out of business
Cons: it was there for a little bit
In two words, It sucked. And in three more words, It ssucked very bad. I guess some people like working 12 hour days seven days a week. But,, they can not be normal people. Poor management and over worked people, and extremely over paid managers ran this place out. Good riddens too. I had to star out the dirty parts of the words that are not inappropiate language......Believe me,alot can be used in describing that place.

Great place to work, too bad it was seasonal
(Seasonal), Laser Operator (Former Employee), Roanoke, VAMay 1, 2014
Pros: it was a relaxed atmosphere
Cons: i had to sit the whole day
I loved working at Accellent. I was a laser operator making heart stents out of platinum. There was a great deal of math involved and was challenged every day. I prefer to be up and moving at all times but this was my first sit down job, it was a good change.
