Laborer (Current Employee) – Montpelier, OH – September 14, 2017
I assemble, sand, pack, and band semi parts. I learned how to deal with semi parts. Management can use some work, but are likeable. For me it is working 3rd shift, I'm a 1st shift person. Learning something new everyday.
Back-Up Lead Operator/Utility (Former Employee) – Montpelier, OH 43543 – September 5, 2017
Great employees, the lack of advancement for someone with a college degree isn't so well. They pay for some of your schooling if it's a program that will benefit you working for them. Some times it felt like Highschool with all the drama.
Production Operator (Former Employee) – Montpelier, OH – November 2, 2016
The work is easy, but the hours seem to vary a lot because of bad planning. Depending on the shift you are on you may deal with a lot of double standards, as well as favoritism towards certain employees. The quality is one of these issues, some shifts run parts one way others run parts another way.
Its a lot like high school.
A lot of drama.
Sometimes they keep people as temp employees for 6-9 months so they don't have to pay them benefits, while they hire some straight through the door.
Lead ops and supervisors constantly break the rules and miss use there power.
operator pay start- 12.45 operator top pay- 14.97
Insurance, decent pay
Bad management, bad supervisors, many double standards
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – October 21, 2016
A good productive day at work depends on the customer statifaction of the quality that our company ships to them. If the company's customer is not happy then our company is not happy, which means we will have to do a lot of overtime.
A typical day inlcudes completing whatever tasks may need to be done, no person has any particular position within the general labor pool. I learned about quality inspection and paint methods. The hardest part about the job is not knowing whether there is something to do or not.
Its a good productive place to learn a lot of skills.
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – July 17, 2016
Its a good job to learn different skills and I've learned a lot about assembling parts and picking and pulling parts. My co workers are good people and very understanding when it comes to working together. The hardest part of the job is coming in a different times and having to deal with different things everyday. What I enjoy the most is that it easy to learn and move up to different positions if possible.
There is much to learn in the heavy truck molding division. It's challenging, yet rewarding. It's a pleasure working with other managers to accomplish the daily tasks. It is a friendly environment to work in.
Summer Intern (Former Employee) – Mount Airy, NC – April 12, 2016
CK Technologies was very welcoming. I was trained in an efficient manner that allowed me to start working and making an impact almost immediately. I enjoyed the working environment. A typical day at work was comprised of working on the floor to meet the needs of international companies that contracted work to the plant. The management was very fair and goal oriented and held everyone accountable. The most enjoyable part of the job was being accountable for work that was used nationally in the shipping industry.
Accountability, Strong management, Great Co-Workers
Great co-workers and management is always about productivity
Utility (Former Employee) – Montpelier, OH – November 2, 2015
When i worked for CK Technologies I found myself able to cooperate easily with other workers and was able to branch off of normal production on a press and start working my way up a career ladder with Forklift experience and some shipping and receiving.
Clean workplace, great people
Short handed on orders sometimes, so work might be slow
Operator (Former Employee) – Bryan OH – April 5, 2015
I operated presses, helped with assembly, quality inspection, building packaging, and utility/forklift driving. Management was very helpful and willing to work with employees, and my coworkers were always helpful and hard working. I really enjoyed watching the parts go through the entire process and actually see the parts we made on semi trucks on the highway.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mount Airy NC – January 15, 2015
Had 2 married couples managing the place and they did not care about anyone. Mgmt came in late and left early but if you were hourly you had to be on time. HR Manager was dating the Plant Supt. so mgmt was not employee friendly.
Lead Operator (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX. – August 28, 2014
My experience with the Fort Worth plant for CK Technologies was overall an up and down one. I was originally hired to be a painter, however found myself in more of a maintenance role due to the fact I was more mechanically inclined and better at troubleshooting problems quickly. After 7 months I found myself in the lead position for second shift production. My nightly responsibilities were to create the run order and set production goals IAW the customers needs. I was responsible for coordinating with HR about the manpower, as well as training all new production employees. For the first five months the whole shift was excelling with minimal interference from office personel, however A new management team was hired and it created a rather poor working enviorment. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping to build a team that not only met the goals that were set, but exceeded them with a high quality rating. The hardest part of my job was adapting to the new management style and office politics.
