Machinist/Project Employee (Former Employee), Promentory, Ut – March 22, 2013
Pros: was not pushed for hundreds of parts each day
Cons: 1 hr drive each way daily
A typical day started at abgt 4:am and went to 4:pm m-f working a 5-4-9 shift, I learned that being in a hurry was not in anyone intrest so slow down and double or triple check everything if need be, and to ask for help if not sure about something.

Ammunition Packer (Former Employee), Independence, MO – October 6, 2012
Pros: great company
Cons: long hours
Dealing with bullets can always be interesting because you never know when a pop is going happen. A pop off is when a bullet randomly goes off. I learned how to inspect bullets, and how to be a team player. My co-workers were absolutley amazing bunch of people and I would not have traded them with anyone else in the world. We all enjoyed eachothers – more... company and made the work day go by so much faster, because working 12 hour days there is not much you can do to make the day go by faster unless you have something to do and thats what we did for eachother. We are eachothers escape goats of time if you might say. The hardest part of the day is the 12 hour shifts that you are trying to get through so you can go home and see your family. – less

lead operator, Detail forman (Former Employee), Radford, VA – August 17, 2012
Pros: pay check
Cons: long hrs wih very sort breaks. no incentives.
Start building, ran safety meeting, ran production. I learned how to b a better leader. Managment : I loved working for all of my bosses. They didn't make me feel that I was capable of doing my job. I worked hard every day but never felt appreciated. Not all managment was like this. Co workers: I enjoyed my job and my co workers. Like in all jobs there – more... are differences but nothing that can't be solved. There was nothin.g hard about the job but the hardest thing was pleasing the managment. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that at the end of day I did my job and fulfilled customers orders. Also knowing that what I did is helping our military perform their duties safely. – less
