Pros: overtime option, decent compensation
Cons: long days, poor location, lack of culture
I worked at Altec for about eight months while I was studying IE in school. The company is a mid-sized private manufacturing company. As a quality engineer, my role was to work with customers, analyze firsthand quality feedback, and work to preemptively stop defects before they occurred. I generally worked five 10-hour shifts, with the option of overtime on Saturdays. I was also provided the opportunity for some large-scale projects and Rapid Continuous Improvement events.
