Tool Maker (Former Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – October 1, 2017
Poorly managed, 2 faced cut throat employees ( in the tool room ). Upper management and engineering is clueless. You will be beat down, used, and degraded. Horrible culture is promoted by management and humane resources. This company will cheat and lie about anything! There was a time in was a good company but since it has been taken by Griffin it has gone on a fast downward spiral. Managers of all departments are not fit to manage and could not anywhere else. There's a reason they are constantly hiring!

Laborer/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Dexter City, OH – July 23, 2017
It was a good place to work, close to home. It was a reliable place to work. I don't agree with the amount that they want to pay their employees. The bosses were always pretty decent to work for and very understanding.

Not a great place to work. They treat there employees bad.They can be very inconsiderate. It's very hot in the summer but there's free sports drinks when available. The work is in between depending on which department you work in
Assembler (Former Employee) – Harrisburg, PA – April 17, 2017
It was a great opportunity for me to learn different job skills such as drilling, sawing, and bundling. Also there were opportunities for advancement. After I was trained, my performance on each task was above average.

SENIOR ACCOUNTS PAYABLE ANALYST (Former Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – August 26, 2016
Ames was a terrible place to work, especially for those in the accounting/finance fields. Management doesn't seem to care about it's employees. Raises are not given based on performance. There is too much work and not enough people to do the work. Co-workers were friendly, but also miserable about being there.
