A currently evolving workplace, old culture attempting to be cool again
Building Administrator (Former Employee) – McLean, VA – March 18, 2016
A typical workday consisted of 2-5 meetings with different departments in the building to come to conclusions on projects. Management lacked in assisting lower management learn. Many things were self-taught or assisted by a friendly co-worker. Most parts of my job I enjoyed. Angry exhibitors were sometimes difficult to deal with but I became very good at turning an angry customer to a happy one before getting off the phone.
Great benefits, Some great people, Ability to travel, Interesting field
Project Engineering Admin (Former Employee) – Orion, MI – February 3, 2015
AMT was most definitely one of the best places I had ever worked for. They treated you with respect and valued their employees. I learned many new traits at this job, mostly Microsoft office and later Robot Programming. Everyone there was enjoyable to work with and fun. I feel that the business was truly run by professional business people that knew how to make the company excel as well as their employees.
Assembly Mechanic (Former Employee) – Arlington, WA – November 2, 2014
When I first started they gave some thorough training and hyped up their benefits. When you're done training though that is when all the hype fades and you see just how much everyone doesn't want to be there. When I was hired with 40+ other people, over the course of a month, the company started letting go people who had worked there for up to 12 years for very little reason if any at all. Gave me the feeling of no job security. Management stresses that leads and other management remain removed from the workforce which only causes your workforce to not respect management in thinking they don't know what they're talking about. The hardest part of the job is finding the motivation to go to work every day when management shows open bias to employees they help get hired and they give yearly raises less than fifteen cents an hour. The most enjoyable part of the job is laughing at the company meetings and management wonders why their Boeing quality rating has continued to plummet. They like to say Boeing is only 45% of their business, but in actuality it's closer to 96%. As the summary states, this is a great company to get your foot in the door for training in the aerospace industry, learn what a company management structure should not be like in a manufacturing business, and to learn how to never be appreciated. This company used to be great years ago before they were sold to Senior.
good training for boeing
unnoticeable raises, terrible one on one reviews, management that have no idea what they are talking about, and little to no job security.
Production worker (Current Employee) – Brecksville, OH – October 12, 2015
i love working at the place cause the environment is clean the people are nice and the managers are really level headed. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing i'm helping people everyday. The co-Workers that i seen everyday are great and some are good friends in my personal life.
Management culture is not beneficial to the employees
Senior Aerospace (Former Employee) – Arlington, WA – December 17, 2014
Most of the Management team have no idea how to use the MRP system and waiver to the weak link without proper investigation of most situations. The message put for in writing is very different than the culture created and upheld. There is a strong move by many employees to leave once other companies give them a call. Most unfortunate that the company does not cultivate the employee base strengths.
I was happy to work with them I use to finish the job before time.
Artisan Rigger (Former Employee) – Power stations – January 31, 2015
I experienced a lot and each an every day I use to learn some thing new our management was friendly ,the co -workers that I was working with there was a good communication with them ,the hardest part of the job is when they give you the task that they don't have the necessary tools to do the task. the enjoyable part is when we all communicate and work safe come to our families alive.
A daily routine would be checking messages, checking with shipping for the daily outgoing products, pull blueprints for machinist. Monitor orders for customers and stay in contact with customers on shipping dates. Organized all blueprints and categorized them by hyperlinking them in excel programs. Order quartz and other items needed for manufacturing silicon parts. Help with delievers when needed.
working with vietnamese taught me about a new culture and work ethics
Machinist Trainee (Former Employee) – Arlington, WA – November 17, 2013
Bigger company that felt small. Did alot for the local community. Management was good about working with employees' schedules and questions related to work. Pay was descent and overtime was abundant and optional for those that wanted it. Great positive atmosphere.
Customer Support Specialist, Tetra Tech (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – November 25, 2013
I enjoyed working with this company. I was always busy which I love & I had great people to work with. My managers were in Chicago and D.C so sometimes if they were unavailable I relied on people with I worked with. This is a great company to work with.
Details Clerk (Current Employee) – Arlington, WA – March 27, 2014
In my 2 years at AMT I learned a lot had a chance to cross train in different areas in the company. Used different types of tools. Moral was for the most part high. All the co-workers got along just fine with each other.
