I like what I do, but the management insists on shifting everyone to different department every other week in hopes to learn all of them. Most of the time two weeks isn't enough time to actually learn what you need to know to do the job correctly and safely.
Benifits, and every other weekend and most holidays off
They post every bit of overtime they can, and they lack a good proper training program when moving departments
Working with Daikin as a test stand operator I was able to learn a lot in the electrical aspect with schematics and troubleshooting. The hardest part of the job would be having a unit that has an issue that did not pass testing that needs to be fixed so it can get shipped on time
don't have the right amount of people for the workload, and not a friendly work environment
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Faribault, MN – September 6, 2016
Management is horrible!!! They refuse to give ill/injured employees treatment. Employees have suffered serious injuries. In two cases broken bones. One case wasn'the treated till three days later. Another worked for three months before being sent to a doctor. They treat employees with absolute disdain and hostility. They have no concerns or compassion for employees. I have never worked for a place that treats it's employees so horribly.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – South Carolina – August 22, 2016
Poorly trained managers who expect the impossible without supplying you the necessary means to accomplish their goals. A culture of always looking over your shoulder. If things don't go as planned, you are expendable.
Brazer, Panel Bender, Assembler (Former Employee) – Auburn, NY – April 9, 2016
I would braze copper elbows into coils used in air conditioners, would test them for leaks and check overall appearance. Coils were always changing depending on unit. Had to read blueprints to build the coils properly. Worked very well with co-workers. Had a great group and were always helping each other. The hardest part was standing idol for 9 plus hours a day. Liked working with my co-workers and just being busy
unload trucks and deliver material to assembly lines
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Auburn, NY – January 28, 2016
Unload trucks, up five loads a day, and deliver it to either a stage area or to an assembly line. I worked also a production assistant which required me to make sure the assembly line have the necessary parts to work with in a timely matter. I worked closely with the supervisors.
I enjoyed working with my coworkers. It was an friendly place to work and I worked with some of the nicest foreman I will ever meet.
could be creative to improve ergonomics & production needs.
Tool and Die Maker (Former Employee) – Auburn, NY – January 12, 2016

To strict when you or family has a Dr. appointments
Coil Fabrication Technician (Former Employee) – Auburn, NY – September 28, 2015
I enjoyed my job very much at Daikin I was very disapointed when I learned they were moving to Mexico. Most of my days consisted of running the machines to process coils for the assembly lines, the only hard part about the job is when the machines didn't run properly. I always enjoy doing my job if i'm running a machine, I have been doing it for many years and it is what I enjoy doing.

Free Picnic once a year, Great Union, Very supporting.

Productive and motivated work environment with exceptional people
Administrative Receptionist (Former Employee) – NJ – May 28, 2012
I enjoyed every aspect of working for Daikin McQuay, I learned alot of vital information and the in's and out's of the HVAC industry. I was fortunate to work amongst true professionals that were masters in thier trade and devoted hard working individuals. The hardest part of my job was if I was not able to come in due to an emergency and the most enjoyable part was being there everyday.
Welcoming place with large diversity of cultures and ethnicity.
Development Engineer - Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 11, 2013
Very nice floor layout with a good balance of office space, conference room, and technical center. Recently renovated a new cafeteria and fitness center to promote health and well-being. Extremely nice co-workers who are willing to put everything down to help you out. The best part of this job is extreme flexibility of your working hours and what you do during those times.
HVAC Technician (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 14, 2014
Management is incompetent and able to do whatever they want. No money is spent of the office, or any equipment that is needed to get the job done. You are responsible for learning everything possible about the company with no help from anyone and are expected to have it understood before you start. If not, then you will get disciplined and told that you should have known better. If you cost money in any way possible to the company, then you are not doing something right. Have thick skin, because they can say anything they want to you without any recourse. HR does NOTHING to change the situation either. If you want to give everything to a company and expect nothing in return, then this is the place for you.
Horrible Management, lack of training, clueless employees, back-stabbing, use everything you say or do against you.
Designer (Former Employee) – Plymouth – January 31, 2014
Very negative experience working here. Very high turnover. Management comes down so hard on their best and brightest employees that they quit without having another job lined up. Physical and mental abuse abuse of employees is accepted here.
Level 3 Desktop Technician IT Project Manager (Current Employee) – Verona VA – July 2, 2015
A typical day starts with a quick clean up of critical issues from the previous night, followed by responding to customer service tickets that have been prioritized. I have learned the basics of IT service desk operations, the troubleshooting steps and repair of enterprise software. The management of the IT department here is very good and allows us to work at our own pace and with little interference. The job expectations are great with the support of a factory as well as 250 users for my position. The co-workers are an easy bunch to work with in time, though they are critical until they know and are comfortable with the skills. The hardest part of the job is the unceasing demands and reprioritizing of tickets due to the number of requests that come into my office. The most enjoyable part is the chance to effect efficiency with technology and the development of processes and software integration.
