Corporate employee (Current Employee) – Santa Ana, CA – November 5, 2017
A time of change with restructuring. Could be an exciting place to be if it's the right fit. A good assessment of the company is to read the financial news releases. In addition, production employees have a can-do attitude. People care about doing the right thing.
TOOL CRIB MANAGER (Former Employee) – Gardena, CA – April 17, 2017
Get to work early about 10 minutes before start time enjoy a cup of coffee with co-workers. i learned about 5 s.. kaizen events managers were very dedicated strong communications. well organized too many buildings to walk and delivery tools not real ways to commute. every body likes to work there
bonus at end of the year and free coffe
it was no system to set up the next set of tools, little bid hard to get the right tools to work with.
Crimp Assembler (Current Employee) – Joplin, MO – March 5, 2017
The work is interesting, I enjoy learning new things and being challenged. Like with any company there are some great people and there are some less than desirable people as well. Most of the supervisors are unprofessional.

Product Line Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Carson, CA – February 2, 2016

The most enjoyable part of the job was leading and developing Engineers.
Shipping/Receiving (Former Employee) – Coxsackie, New York – July 5, 2015
Decent benefits. Low pay and they expect you to be happy with your pay rate because of all the overtime and killing your body. School like clicky atmosphere. If you didn't like high school or being around gossipy people not the job for you. I'm originally from the City and we didn't do all that talking straight to business if there's a problem. I would've stood if I was in a different department and made a couple dollars more per hour. Hr was very helpful and so was team leads in understanding personal issues people go through so to be honest it wasn't a horrible company.
Benefits, Bonuses, human resources
Pay rate, Too many hours to make decent check, high school atmosphere
Employee (Current Employee) – Parsons, KS – June 22, 2015
Manufacturing of aerospace products is what Ducommun does and you would think by now someone would figure out how to run the company! Production ordering is a joke you work overtime sweeping the floor because you have nothing to do then all of a sudden you have to hurry hurry to get stuff out the door working overtime to get it out. This place will put you on mandatory overtime for seven days straight for weeks at a time with no notice, you are supposed to be informed by Wednesday but Friday works for them and if you had plans well "maybe then this is not the place for you to work if you are not willing to work when needed" huh absolutely right family and plans doesn't matter. Then there is those who the less they do the more management recognizes them, so if you're lazy this is the place for you!!!
Health care plan is decent
Way too much overtime, sexist management, priorty is NOT the employee
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Monrovia, CA – February 11, 2014
The worst place I've ever worked. Management aggravates people. They are running scared since many of their programs are winding down, no new business in the works. Their answer is to flog the workers. Old, run-down facilities. They fired most of the maintenance people. They fired good workers. Co-workers gang up in private clique and rat on you. Do Not Work Here.
