On a typical day I usually work on inner diameter grinders such as Mecannica Nova grinders, Nagel hone grinders, and Peter Wolters grinders. I absolutely enjoy working for Advanced Technology Services, my co-workers have helped me out alot in my career as well as my manager and supervisors.

Lied to; no plant eqpt. training; online training garbage only. Safety requirements vary plant-to-plant.
Senior Maintenance Technician / Shift Lead (Former Employee), Augusta, AROctober 4, 2014
Pros: a paycheck
Cons: lies to employees, no eqpt.-specific training, mandates safety but takes months to get safety gear
1) Was told by ATS management that we would be trained for the specific plant machinery when we went into a plant for a new ATS maintenance contract start-up. We never were. We only had access to the generic ATS online safety training programs. Anyone can view similar programs online for free. ... (2) ATS hired many replacement plant maintenance employees – more... whose skills did not match the industry we were in. Example: one shift with eight maintenance workers had no one who could operate a welding machine or cutting torch. This was absurd and caused excessive downtime to the plant we worked in. ... (3) We sat through the multiple safety orientation meetings prior to our beginning work in the plant. We heard all about the ATS safety commitment. HOWEVER, when we began work in the plant, we did not have sufficient safety gear to legally comply with Lockout/Tagout ... Confined Space Entry ... and Arc-Flash Safety, etc. We complained about this for FIVE MONTHS. Some maintenance workers did not receive their fall-arrest harnesses and lanyards through this same time period. We eventually got what we needed, but ATS professes to follow all safety laws, which is a lie. They do what is convenient, and on a time frame that allows their budget numbers to remain where they want them. I would call this FRAUD, which it is. I left after one year. I have worked in maintenance for over twenty years, and it was disgusting to have been lied to like this. I left after one year. – less

Great company
Operation Technician (Former Employee), Sweetwater, TXSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: lots of training available
Typical day at work consisted of maintaining equipment and talking with the customer about equipment improvement. While at Advanced Technology Services I learned how to weld, how to use a fork lift and took classes for A+ certification for computer hardware. The management was very help full and always available if you had questions. The co-workers – more... would help train you in areas you wanted to improve in. Hardest part of the job was keeping up with factory production and fixing there equipment for them to continue. Enjoyable part of the job was the training and learning new skills while becoming a better team with my co-workers. – less

Help Desk Representative II (Current Employee), Schaumburg, ILSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: great exposure to enterprise it support
Cons: advancement beyond help desk was a bit limited
As a part of ATS I worked on one of our IT help desk contracts for a fortune 50 company. During this time I got incredible exposure to IT infrastructure and implementation in a global enterprise environment. We supported multiple applications in a demanding environment, and this kind of learning experience is incredibly value to any beginning IT professional.

Pretty good comany
Helpdesk / Deskside Support Technician (Current Employee), Peoria, ILAugust 17, 2014
I think this organization is very good for a beginner entering the field. I do, however, think that their current policy regarding sick days / leave / emergencies needs to be changed. Currently, for the hourly employee, you get 03 'occurrences' a YEAR to be sick, have something come up or some kind of emergency. Any more than 03 occurrences is grounds – more... to get you terminated.

Overall, however, they have strong management, they're willing to give first-timers a chance and they have decent benefits. – less

STAY AWAY....work here as a last resort
Maintenance (Current Employee), Mountain home, ARJuly 15, 2014
Pros: pay-benifits
Cons: managment
The worst managment I have ever worked for, they motivate thru intimidation and fear, want absolutly no input from employees. ATS is about perception, not performance. There moto should be ; `We run companys into the ground` I have been with ATS for 5 months, and after 20 years in Maintance I know i made a mistake! Will need to start the job seeking – more... procese over. P.S the work-home life balance, is a bunch of B.S – less

Nothing but a snowjob!
Maintenance Tech (Former Employee), Emporia,ILJune 6, 2014
Cons: management very shady
Management will say anything to get you in the door and on the floor. Management will promise you everything with a verbal but never back it up in writing, then forget about it and return with "I never said that" when the subject comes back up. The process of getting you started on boarding is a train wreck and very disappointing. Was not impressed – more... at all with any aspect of this company and how they make themselves look VS the way the actually are and treat there workforce. – less

Supply Chain Specialist (Former Employee), Peoria, ILJune 3, 2014
My typical day at work was data integrity analysis on parts that were needed to be purchased, receiving parts in, warehouse parts once received, pulled parts and prepared for shipping. I worked on several different projects that were created by myself or upper management.

Pros: employees recived beneifts the day you start work
Cons: lack of training.
typical day is we start off with a safety and passdown meeting , started on any PM'S that need to be done or went to fix any euipment that was down at the time.I learned a lot about HVAC , Chillers, hydrolics, electriacal. Management was good ! MyCo-workers were some awesome people to work with.If you didnt know something all you had to do was ask and – more... they wouldnt mind showing you. Hardest part of my job was being put on a job to do that i had no idea how to fix. Just took time to research and figure it out,but really not too bad. Enjoyable would be working with my co-workers as a team. – less

Pros: free lunches.
Cons: horrible management.
This was good because chances for advancement was there, but you have to be at the right place and the right time to take advantage of it. Typical day was hectic compared to most other jobs but you learn a lot in a small time. Frequent free lunches for goals met and team thanking.

Productive and fun place to work with great opportunities
Help Desk Representative (Former Employee), Peoria, ILFebruary 20, 2014
ATS is a very good company to work for, albeit not a very stable one. They are an outsourcing company, which means their contracts are dependent upon how well the other company performs in their industry. They have great benefits for anyone who works for them, including paid training opportunities, stock options for employees, 401K, health, life, dental, – more... & vision at reasonable rates. I would encourage anyone who wants to get their foot in the door of the IT or Manufacturing industries to start here. This is a good company to provide a stepping stone to other opportunities, whether within the company itself, or with other companies. – less
