Finishing Operator (Former Employee) – Town of Erwin, NY – September 17, 2016
The job was not difficult once you knew the basic and built upon them. Competitive wage with chances to advance once you had a little seniority. Over all one of the best job I have had. the down fall is work schedule
An amazing company that offered daily challenges and unlimited room for growth.
Team Lead/Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) – Bedford, MA – September 24, 2015
Responsibilities included, but were not limited to, learning the process, SPC charts, specs and ensuring the movement of product, while maintaining a clean and safe working environment. Training co-workers, prioritizing work flow to a team of 10-20 employees, scheduling breaks and performing written and verbal passdowns to management.
Management was always there and willing to help, but at the same time, allowed room for employees to work on their own and make decisions, based on work load, personnel and equipment availability.
Had the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in the semi conductor world and learned a great deal about micro processors.
Working overnights and being responsible for the night to night duties.
a safe, clean environment, able to work with no supervision and great benefits package.
I performed all duties and responsibilities related to Lab Tecnician

No real job security. The hiring process is driven by the temp worker system
I enjoyed my time at this company. I enjoyed the comradery with my former colleagues. I learnt a lot from the several projects that I worked on. The overall work environment can be improved significantly to boost employee morale.

Contract employees get treated like yesterday's trash
Order entry assistant (Former Employee) – Hickory, NC – August 17, 2015
if you are a 20 year old pretty female who works out everyday they will love you, otherwise you will be treated like a second class citizen and thrown out like yesterday's trash. This only applies to the customer service department. The other departments were much more friendly and welcoming but customer service is very outdated and do not involve the "team" in any decision making. I was called at 7pm and informed I could not come back to work the next day and the supervisor told my team that I had quit and left them hanging. This was after 2 years of working without asking for one day off since I did not get paid vacation time at all. I loved my coworkers but management needs to get with the times, this is 2015 after all.
Management, everyone is scared they will be let go even full time employees with 10plus years
Millwright/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – July 13, 2015
Very strict policies pertaining to safety to be met with constant supervision by safety and in house foremans on each floor that work duties were being performed. Almost overcrowded by other workers in tight spaces on each floor and sharing of equipment as in scizzor and boom lifts between contractors and other employees.
Operator (Former Employee) – Greenville, OH – April 26, 2015
Swing shift was a good challenge to overcome in the 23 years experience at Corning. Adapting with the great many others who shared the experiences made my life at Corning a home. Many shared hobbies, sports and relationships was a fascinating dream come true. If I had a chance to experience life at Corning again, I would not change a day.
Open 24 hour cafeteria at reasonable prices. Planned weekends. Overtime opportunities.
A typical day at work consisted of meeting up in our office. We would assign tasks and then proceed to get started with our day. I would mop, vacuum, dust, and strip and wax floors. Dust free was the biggest thing we had to deal with but we got it done every week.
Free lunches, sometimes breakfast. A lot of company celebrations
Some of the people weren't great to work with, and everyone being so inparticular
