Mill Operator (Former Employee), Cleveland, OH – June 10, 2013
Pros: birthday off.
Cons: the dusty work areas.
TEAM MEETING TO GET MILL ASSIGNMENT. BRIEFED ON OVERALL SAFETY OF MILLS. IT IS AT THIS TIME MANAGEMENT WILL BRIEF US OF COMPANY NEWS AND POLICY CHANGES IF ANY. TEAMWORK WAS REQUIRED AT VARIOUS POINTS IN OPERATING A MILL AND WE READILY HELPED EACH OTHER. THE MOST DIFFICULT PART OF THE JOB WAS THE LOADING OF THE MILL, AND THE MANY STEPS REQUIRED BEFORE – more... STARTING THE GRIND. THE ANNUAL FAMILY PICNIC WAS ALWAYS A FAVORITE. – less
Industrial Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Taccoa, Ga – April 29, 2013
This is the best place that I have ever worked. Made great money had an amazing crew to work with, and great management. Only downfall to this job is that the plant I worked at closed down, If not for this I would probubly have retired right there.
Administrative Assistant I (Former Employee), Washington, PA – July 29, 2012
I worked for Ferro Corporation for 38 years. My position was eliminated the beginning of February 2012 as a result of corporate cutbacks. I enjoyed working with all of the different people (personalities) as well as the different departments. The constant change kept the position interesting to me. I enjoy to continue learning new things.
Productive and fun work place. I really enjoyed color matching for plastics.
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Stryker, OH – May 7, 2012
Pros: paid lunch time, and award recognitions for good work performed.
Cons: when i became a displaced worker from the company.
In a typical day working at Ferro I would color match two to three samples a day for the customers. My coworkers and I worked as a team, eager to help one another at any time. I learned so any interesting things about color matching in plastic concentrates. I always looked forward to the next color match as they were all different. The hardest part – more... about the job was getting the color sample to run heavily loaded concentrates on the twin or single barrel machine for a sample to be sent out to the customers. – less
