Intern in 2006
Intern Engineer (Former Employee) –  Kent, WAMay 25, 2016
Low pay, lots of bullying by management, oppressive culture. At least the technology is pretty cool.

The shop manager routinely swore at the chief engineer. Most of the full time engineers were miserable. The department manager seemed to follow a divide and conquer approach. Also they administer an engineering test when you join.
Pros
Technology is top notch
Cons
Terrible pay, corporate culture is awful and oppressive

Does NOT look good
press brake operator (Former Employee) –  Kent, WAJanuary 8, 2016
I was called by this company and asked if I was interested in applying for work with them and said yes, after that I don't know what happened but for some reason they completely stopped and refused all communication with me. To this day I am baffled by their treatment of me. As a result of this ,I pay attention when ever I see the name Exotic Metals and have noticed that they have more job openings than any other company that I can think of. After a little investigation I came to find out the reason for the many openings, and the reason is that they have a high turn over of employees. Maybe the reason for this is a lack of quality people looking for work or maybe the reason is something else like the quality of the employer. Just something to think about and consider caution before accepting employment with Exotic Metals
Pros
close to home
Cons
not a good working environment

Not a good place to work

The only positive thing about Exotic Metals is the co-workers. The managements philosophy is if you do not like it leave. They show no appreciation for your hard work but are quick to point out your mistakes.
