It would have been a nice place to work. Bad Management.
Wire Technician (Former Employee), Maple Grove, MNMay 27, 2014
Pros: nice co workers to work with, clean work place.
Cons: poor management, not standardized.
Each day when you get to work you have to check if the machine is ready for the next person or yourself to do that day. If not most of the time you might help your co workers or even clean the production floor.

Everyone of the co workers are great to work with. Always had fun helping and learning from each other.

As for management, they treat employees – more... unfair. Don't want to go into details but hope this will change so people will stay. It is a 5S company but does not have standards to do things. There is no process and you have to memorize where everything goes. Have to take notes just to remember what to use or where the parts or cables go.

The hardest thing about the job is that there is nothing to do when your job is done. You will have to wait for the next person to finish their part before you can take over. If you help or talk to your co worker, you will get in trouble.

The most enjoyable thing about the job is working with my fellow co workers. We help each other build the machines and trouble shoot the problems with the machines.

Like I said it would have been a good place to work if the management treat us as value employees and have a chance to get hired on. – less
