Good pay but if you want something stable find something else.
General Utility Relief (Former Employee), Brillion, WISeptember 24, 2013
Pros: pay
Cons: everything else
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 – more... 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. – less

The Machining Center was a nice place to work.
Assembler Laid off (Current Employee), Brillion, WIAugust 11, 2013
Pros: good money due to a lot of overtime.
Cons: room for advancement was very limited.
I am laid off due to the machining center closing. A typical day at work was fast paced but enjoyable. Most of the employees were easy to get along with.
The hardest part of the job was that it was extremely fast paced at times.
