Production Worker (Former Employee) – Muskogee, OK – October 11, 2017
Typically you will only work for 8 hours although there are times when you could work from 10 to 12 hours in a day. The work day is determined by the amount of orders for the day and how quickly you can get them done. My supervisor was great and upper management had its moments. There is a very typical feel to the job in the sense that there are definitely favorites. Some of the things they get away with make you scratch your head! However if you can get past that, it's a super easy job. I loved most of the people I worked with and had I not relocated I would still be there today!!! Vacation time was earned. The first few years you would earn 8 hours of vacation for each month worked. One of the things that was not so positive was the fact that you generally did not know or get advanced notices of when you were going to have to work more than the 8 hour shift. The company would bring in free lunch from different restaurants around town, once a month.
Field Service Technician (Current Employee) – Florida – August 12, 2017
A typical day consist of early start to a job site and troubleshooting equipment or commissioning equipment. You learn so much so fast but become expert. The management and support team are awesome and are always there to help and support you. The whole company takes care of their people. The hardest part of the job is dealing with small spaces that you cannot control but have to get to. The most enjoyable part is making your own schedule!! Great place and wouldn't change it!
I recently was terminated with no explanation whatsoever. I drove 1 hr. and 15 minutes to work from home and was always the first to arrive. After 4 months working at CaptiveAire, I was terminated with no explanation with 2 weeks of pay as severance. My work output was more than my peer, who started at the same time that I did. Just very unfortunate. No writeups or anything. Pretty cutthroat.
Work is not difficult
Lunch breaks are considered: bring your lunch and eat within 15 mintues, then back to work. 10 hr. days is expected with 15 min. lunch break.
Inventory Control Supervisor (Former Employee) – Youngsville, NC – August 2, 2017
Production manager at the NC plant is a horrible manager. If he feels that he could lose his job to you than you are fired. The east coast manager that is usually at the youngsville plant believes his lies. They put all the burden on you and then toss you out the door unless you are a very select few. It use to be a great place to work that paid awesome. Now they show anyone that makes decent the door.
Assembly/Fabrication (Former Employee) – Youngsville, NC – June 8, 2017
Steady work week, always something to do. If you like a comfortable working environment, this is not the place for you. Can be a hazardous environment. Must always wear PPE. Very strict on safety. Regular drug test-if you do drugs, don't bother applying. Must always be on time, tardiness is not acceptable.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Muskogee, OK – January 18, 2017
The Company is amazing they have many different opportunities within the company in multiple departments. Great work environment/ work areas. Very Safe work environment and crew. Great managers within the company and compensation within such as safety lunches with gift give aways.
shady crew members within departments. Fire people without getting the full story
Welder/Assembler (Former Employee) – Youngsville, NC – December 30, 2016
Plant management takes a hands on approach to day to day life on the production floor at Captiveaire Systems. Each member of the team has the opportunity to contribute greatly to the well-being of the plant as well as the company at large. I never felt like just a number at Captiveaire Systems, I was a part of a large family there. I received holiday and birthday cards as well as recognition for having stood by the company for a years time or more from the president of the company. It was really nice to have been remembered specifically by our corporate leadership. The three highest priorities, in order, are safety, quality, and production. At Captiveaire, we never send anything out the door that we aren't proud of and wouldn't spend our own money on. Every unit is inspected ad nauseam and tested to meet or exceed industry standards and regulatory requirements for fire suppression and air exchange/filtration capabilities.
Montlhy lunches, recognition of excellence/tenure, quality expectation, profit based bonuses, generous compensatin and pay raises
pollution control unit assembly (Current Employee) – Redding, CA – May 3, 2016
set schedule, opportunity for overtime, monthly benefits, opportunity for raises/promotion. i learned; welding, plasma cutting, multiple power tools. managers are helpful and do their best to help out. co-workers are excellent and have great attendance. hardest part of the job, it is a very physical and fast pace job. the benefits the company offer is the best part of the job/career.
I assemble and program electrical control panels for ventilation systems per electrical schematics. Its fun and hard at the same time. I get along with most of my co-workers. Management is young but they try.
