Productive and fun place to work. Great people to work with!
Tooling and Equipment Machining (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORJanuary 14, 2016
A typical day is learning something new or a better way from my peers. Its challenges throughout the day keep a person motivated.
Management cares and motivates each individuals talent.
Hardest part of the job would be within yourself, not to get discouraged at yourself.Most enjoyable is the relations you create with other co-workers and the challenges each job creates.
Gratifying!
Pros
Great group of people to work with.
Cons
Sales get soft and potential lay offs.

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  kansas City, MissouriJune 1, 2014
Allthough the Company in the start of my 10 years with the Company,it was a very decent and good place overall to work all the staff office and plant worked well together but as the company grew faster than what was able to absorb and employees became throw aways and certain people that made the company moved forward leaving behind the employees that made it all happen..Certain people with there own agendas became hungry to fullfill there needs with disregard as to how they got there...the company as a whole is a very good Company ,,but the in line people are suffering...Management has taken a deffinate down turn..
Pros

Great place to work
Chrome Manufacturing Specialist Level II (Former Employee) –  Milwaukie, ORMarch 22, 2014
a typical day at work is whatever you learn its pretty much basically always the same every day... only when you have deviations or a machine issue is it ever different. They have classes they require you to take, but don't have a time limit to when you have to take them for the most part at the lower positions. I learned my whole department in four years basically with moderate initiative to learn everything. Management was pretty good got along with all of the supervisors that I had. Co-workers were easy to work with for the most part. Occasionally there was an odd one in the bunch, and only on a really off day were they ever even somewhat difficult to be around. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with rate unless you have the know how to fix the machines you were working on. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing basically what you were getting into on a daily basis. the repetitive nature of it made it easy to get through the work week for myself personally, and with that being able to see if you could improve upon your numbers from day to day.
Pros
paid lunches, fitness center health benefits, compensation
Cons
nothing
