Furnace Technician (Former Employee) – Benton, AR – March 15, 2018
Besides the improper management the company wouldn’t be bad to work for besides that they don’t care for their employees. Their equipment are out of date they don’t work or run right so many safety hazards I’m suprise they ain’t been shut down I want ever go back to this place
Poor leadership/no respect for the employees unless your family or best friends with the bosses
Not sure if this company will be around in 10 years!
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Hillsboro, OR – March 9, 2018
The one main fault that I found working at CoorsTek is that the market continually fell off for their products and they weren't able to adapt very quickly to those changing market conditions. Hence layoffs are a frequent occurrence and I worked among the disposable group of people. I generally liked the people I worked with and still keep in touch with a few of them. A typical day involved measuring and checking on the quality of the produced product and validating and verifying that the work procedures were followed. A fun day involved analysis of why batches had failures and validating the data with statistical analysis. I was often surprised whenever I drove by this place to see that it was still operational. Again that's a bias based on the rapidly changing market conditions to which it is subject.
Location to home, co-workers
Market conditions for product, reliance on worn out equipment
Assistant (Former Employee) – Livermore, CA – February 27, 2018
The management and workers worked so well together. Each team member did their jobs effectively. When a member was out the team and mangers joined in to ensure the product line continued to meet the requirements of the company.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Grand Junction, CO – February 11, 2018
No breaks except lunch, not allowed to use pto that you Earned. Mandatory overtime, lots of it. Unprofessional management. Working hard isnt enough unless you are willing to kiss the right butt. Only looking for lifeless drones
Its a job I guess
No breaks, no pto, bad bosses, constantly changing rules
Operator I (Former Employee) – El Segundo, CA – January 20, 2018
A typical day at work I get my tool box then after I go to my machine and turn it on. I get a work order and get my material and start doing my setup. The most enjoyable part of my job is when is when get my work order out on time.
Set-up Technician (Current Employee) – Golden, CO – December 28, 2017
Everyone's experience will be different. But I've been around the block at Coorstek and I, at this point in my life want to lead or work for nothing but great leaders. I am confident that its a great place to work for in manufacturing if you are under the right leadership.
Out dated equipment, little leadership, sink or swim, employee training is sub-par
Quality Control Inspector 2 (Former Employee) – Golden, CO – November 10, 2017
Great Place to work...Iffy managers trying to hide bad parts not all like that but the people that have been there the longest seem to not want to innovate to change. All raises are on a stall some people got raises and some people were not eligible due to new reformation. If lucky to into a good department, the place can be a really good place to work. 9th street is the best building to work in North table mountain the worst due to management issues.
great place to learn metrics and measurements
Some older managers not willing to change buy reducing scrap, but they love to hide it.
