Brillion Iron Works Was A Great Company To Work For , Pay And Benefits Were Great, People Were All Friendly From The Drivers To Management And The Foundry Workers, Around 2001 Accuride Corporation Bought Brillion Iron Works , Work Was Slowly Decreasing, In Fall Of 2016 Accuride Corporation Sold Out To MPG, And They Decided To Close The Doors, It Was Time To Move On .
My Boss And The Equipment And The Dedicated Runs.
All The Times They Were Bought Out, And The Talk Of Maybe Selling The Trucks
Core Room Superintendent (Former Employee) – Brillion, WI – May 6, 2017
Before becoming a part of "corporate" America, the DUB was a great place to work. Good bosses, reasonable expectations and a team oriented environment. Then things changed and, well, it doesn't exist anymore. Need I say more?
Scheduled daily work for the grinding department and Shipping department
Scheduler/Manager/Customer Service/OTD (Current Employee) – Brillion, WI – September 28, 2016
On a typical day, I handed out jobs to about 35 people based on customer orders. I lined up trucks to pick up customer orders. I schedule 2 Finishing departments on what to process based on customer orders. I talked to customers daily by phone or email to talk about any issues with their orders. I corrected any Inventory errors I conducted daily meetings with the Finishing Supervisor, Shipping assistant and the Customer Service group and went through the next week's orders for each customer.
The people were good workers and understood what needed to be done each day.
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Brillion, WI – May 10, 2016
i enjoyed working there, but the job security was not there, only worked 6-7 months at a time then you got layed off. The people were good to work with because there was always someone there if someone needed help.
general labor (Current Employee) – Brillion, WI – November 18, 2015
This employer pays well and has wonderful benefits. But at what cost? You are breathing in horrible air and your saliva and mucus will be black! Multiple people every year both currently working and retired, all die of some sort of cancer...workers beware!
Wonderful pay, and benefits
poorly managed, lay offs, hot and dirty working conditions
Good pay but if you want something stable find something else.
General Utility Relief (Former Employee) – Brillion, WI – September 24, 2013
I was looking for a better paying job and liked the fact that the hourly rate I made would increase at the rate of my output. I knew they had a history of lay-offs and asked at my interview if there was any chance in the near future because I was at a stable job and wouldn't be able to cover my bills if I were to get laid off and be forced to collect unemployment. They told me there were no signs or talks of any lay offs in the coming months. I accepted and started the following week. Two weeks later we were given notice that in two weeks 198 employees would be laid off due to work shortage. I'm not a business major but I doubt a lay off that big due to work shortages would just pop up like that without any warnings or talks. I worked with a guy who was hired two days before this lay off speech, he relocated from out of state. I would never work here again nor would I suggest anyone else work there. I met some good people in my short time there and the pay was really good but my life has spiraled out of control with my bills and other needed living expenses since being laid off and am still in contact with some of my co-workers who are dealing with the same and still looking for employment.
