Assembler (Former Employee) – Ball Ground, GA – August 11, 2016
This place is so judgemental. Have people working there for years who still don't know everything they should. Its all favortisim in this place either you fit right in or they will find reasons to fire you...beware.
welding fabricator (Former Employee) – New Prague, MN – August 31, 2015
Rather boring but steady work, benefits were good. Was moved to night shift and could not go back to day shift. Pay was pretty good, but once you reached max pay, there was absolutely no talk of a raise.
WELDER (Former Employee) – New Prague, MN – July 2, 2015
The work varied depending on what area you worked in. Main production was simple take the parts and assemble them according to the print. Repairs department actually made you think and sometimes fabricate parts to repair the tank to the highest standards possible. You never wanted to send out a product that you felt the customer would not be happy with. My favorite part of the job was learning new things and finding better ways to accomplish my tasks. I enjoyed working on a project on my own or with someone else who took pride in their work.
Occasional free lunches, really good benefits
Frequently got stuck with the worst tasks because I didn't complain about them, not very good at cross training and people frequently got stuck doing the same task every day
RMA/warehousing Specialost (Former Employee) – Amherst ny – May 20, 2015
I work at the buffalo plant. They did not listen to employees under any circumstances. When someone said something about a saftey concern it was blown off or that person was punish or fired. My old coworker that happen to be there still are very unhappy and always worried about being laid off, seeing in 2 year they have laid off about 150 people from buffalo n shut down a shift.
Administrative (Current Employee) – Ball Ground, GA – May 20, 2013
Employees are very nice and welcoming, always willing to go out of their way to help fellow employees. The company is very employee friendly, offering monthly birthday and anniversary celebrations, they take EVERY employee out to lunch for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and have several employee appreciation events throughout the year. Benefits are great, medical is low cost and they offer 401k match and profit sharing.
Lead Welder (Current Employee) – Owatonna, MN – April 28, 2015
Good company to work for. The benefits and wages are very competative. However the shop I worked at is closing so I had to transfer to the other Minnesota Chart facility. The other facility is just a little to far out of my driving range for me to stay long term.
Daily activities would include theory, design, and implementation of cryogenic equipment and their systems.
I learned variety of things including cryogenic equipment, specifications for this equipment, and proper design and implementation for production and sales of this equipment.
Management I would based independently in reference to each manager. Some really good, some not so good, and some not qualified for the position. This is purely dependent on each individual, and in no way reflects upon all management.
Co-workers within my experiences were amazing. The group I had the most experience with could not have been better at what they do. The support for each other throughout entire projects from phase 1 through final testing was top notch.
The hardest part about my job is hard to be exact about. As engineers we are handed difficult tasks and projects to manage daily. If I had to pick any one thing, it would be the fact that we were understaffed in the areas we needed the most support.
The most enjoyable part about my job would have been the problem solving and development of my work. When the moment would come to see all parts join together and bring your creations to life, there was no greater reward.
