Quality Control (Former Employee) –  IndianapolisJune 7, 2015
No organization from management. Lot of people on the floor talk about the "Good Ole Days" Those are long gone now. Many of the product made at DCC have been Outsourced. If you want the just experience and the money, this is a good place to work.
Pros
Money
Cons
No Communication; Poor Management

Former employee (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 24, 2014
Strange company: Does not walk the talk.
Do not trust top management. Not sincere or trustworthy.
Pros
lot of room for opportunity, because most do not know what they are doing.
Cons
living in the past: old machines, unwilling to improve or know how.

Machinist Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 16, 2013
Enjoyed learning about all types of chain functions, such as being used in blood banks, motor cycles, milk carton assembly, to name a few. I felt pride when I saw the Diamond Chain logo on the chains we made, knowing that I was a part of that. Being accepted in the skilled trades department was met with mixed reviews. Being a typically male environment, it was tough at first, but working hard and accepting the position I was in finally paid off and I believe that I opened opportunities for other female gender to follow in my footsteps,.
Pros
being able to work with such close tolerances made me feel proud.
Cons
winning over the die hard people who believed a womans place was not in a machine shop.
