Case Line Operator (Current Employee) – Lyon Station, PA 19536 – July 7, 2016
A typical day working at East Penn Mfg was hot as there was no air conditioning in the plant but it was bearable due to fan placement. I learned the necessity to keep up with my work. Management is good, my co-workers great. The hardest part of the job was the heat. The most enjoyable part of being employed by East Penn Mfg was the co-workers.

Not a good work place. They are concerned about work production not making improvements, They don't have qualified entry level management with experience. Is a hostile work environment. Advancement is not given by experience.
Forming Room Operator (Former Employee) – Lyons, PA – December 30, 2015
The job pays well depending on what you are doing. I was working in the forming room making around $20/hour. $20/hour sounds amazing but to me it wasn't worth the wear and tear on the body as well as the health issues that possibly come from working with lead and acid all day long.
production worker (Current Employee) – Lyons, PA – December 22, 2015
not much room for advancement in company unless you know someone higher in the company. Feel like my supervisor is not a supervisor at all. A lot of lazy people allowed to be lazy. the hardworkers when they do something wrong get punished.
High paced, fast flowing work place; good pay an fast days.
Material Handler & Mold Setup (Current Employee) – Lyon Station, PA – October 10, 2015
During a typical day, my main job is to make sure that all the production workers have what they need for the day. When that is done, usually I request from a supervisor if there are any change overs or new molds to bring down for parts that need to be run. So depending on the change over that will take up most of my day all the while moving, entering, and transferring product. Printing out labels and of course, keeping my co-workers running at a efficient pace. I have learned many things doing this job. One of which, you must be able to move. keep a steady head on your shoulders and most importantly keeping your eye for any mistakes and\or detailed instructions. My co-workers will often dictate how my day will go. Whether its issues with the molds or running out of the material that they need. The most enjoyable part of my job is definitely having a smooth night where all the work gets done, entered, transferred, and my co-workers are able to make money. Management is often the hardest part of my job during my time at East Penn. Some know what they are doing, but for the most part they have a hard time providing answers to questions that need to be answered. This leads to a lot of people being frustrated when they come to work as well as when they leave. But this job for me is definitely a 9 on the stress scale.
Meet good people, pay, work hours, overtime availability

a great place to work. excellent benefits. great work environment. the hardest part of the job is the physical repetitive labor. most enjoyable part is the fact that you go to work, do your job and go home. don't have to bring your work with you.
Set-Up Technician (Former Employee) – Lyon Station, PA – September 15, 2015
Being my first full time job I was ecstatic that I could finally work and use the mechanical skills that I've learned in school and at home. was a messy job but I enjoyed working on the injection molding machines. From troubleshooting to processing new parts, there was always something new to learn everyday. My coworkers weren't afraid to help or give advice when needed. The hands on experience was not only fun but has increased my knowledge and skills set.
Great health benefits and pay rate, supportive co workers, and a lot of opportunity to increase not only in knowleadge but in job placement.
