Productive growing Organization with shop improvments (safe)
QC Inspector (Former Employee), Houston TX Breen RoadJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: opportunity to gain experience
Cons: working under pressure (job security)
Typically Busy most days. and other days are very busy. The day may go by faster than expected if focused on job responsibilities. Hardest part will be maintaining the communication and ability to multitask at the busiest times of days, jobs that can be fairly unfamiliar to handle in a timely manner are hard to handle. I enjoyed brisket at lunch with coworkers and the newer shop space.

WORST PLACE IN HOUSTON TO WORK
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee), Houston TexasAugust 19, 2013
Cons: everything
The walk threw the shop should be key on things to come. The shop is filthy from front to back with a smell from the overflowing deptic tanks. The machines are from the 40's and 50's.
The family that runs it is in need of some long term theropy.
RUN dont walk away from this dirty nasty place, you'll thank me you did.

Productive and busy work place
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Houston, TXMay 17, 2012
A typical day would normally be busy and chaotic but not all the time. But while working there I learned more skills on the computer and utilized my skills from previous experience and the managrs were all different in thier own way. The only hard part of the job was the learning of the product parts but I always enjoyed the breakfast, and lunches managers bought and i loved the environment.
