Machine Operator (Former Employee), Sidney, OH – April 3, 2013
Pros: great working enviroment
Cons: short breaks
My typical day was going to work an hour early to make sure I was always on time, talking to co-workers and waiting for my work day to start. When my work day started I'd make sure my machine was working properly and run a few parts and check them to make sure the machine was running correctly and changing my tools that expired. Then proceeded to do – more... my job and run my parts. The most difficult part of my job was changing the tools and getting the machine back to normal after changing the parts. The most enjoyable part was everything, I absolutely loved my job. – less
My time at Emerson was extremely valuable. I learned what a true work environment was and i learned how to be an engineer. A typical day would involve everything and anything including: writing engineering lab tests, evaluating gauge data, determining failures using root cause analysis, leading meeting for my assigned projects, and attending meetings – more... to give my insight on situations. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that my insight and the information that my testing acquired was useful for the company and the group i was apart of. – less

Emerson has a very nice work environment. Lately they have been on a hiring freeze at the Climate Tech branch due to instability in the housing market so i docked a star for that. Also i work in IT and there is not a lot of room for advancement in that field.
Perfect example of a union shop gone horribly wrong
Assembler (Former Employee), Sidney, OH – April 26, 2012
Pros: it's a paycheck
Cons: you will never make first tier.
The union sold out the workers here many years ago. The union is now divided into two tiers, with all new employees going to the second tier. First tier employees are very well protected by the union and will remind you of this at every opportunity. Second tier employees get to pay union dues and that's about the extent of what the union will do for – more... new workers. – less
