CNC Machinist (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – January 3, 2018
I love the work I do, but I cannot stand the level of incompetency that is allowed to go on continuously without anything being done about it. I am regularly responsible for doing simple tasks for other employees or departments who should be more than capable of doing them but for one reason or another are not.
Relaxed management, respect of owners/managers
poor compensation, first department to receive cut-backs
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 19, 2017
Company offers a great product to their customers. Minorities makes the company millions but they pay pennies but expect to work to meet their needs. Advancement isn't an option no growth. Management has people skills and can be unprofessional at time and rude and racist. There are no minorities in upper management. Poor conditions for factory workers. Nor do they offer track development program either.
Welder (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 28, 2017
This place is a complete mess. They have so many underhanded practices going on I don't know where to begin. I will never work at this place again. I'm glad to know that there are places like this out here and to steer clear.
Productive and Fun Place to Work with a Ping Pong Table
CAD Designer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 23, 2017
A typical day at work involved working on Solid Edge ST5 Cad System and AutoCAD 2006. Management is a family owned business bearing the namesake of its founder that built seating for the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago!
CAD Designer (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 17, 2017
A typical day at work was working at the computer. What was learned was Solid Edge ST5 & autoCAD 2006. Management was and still is a family owned business bearing the namesake of its founders who actually built items for the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1893! There were food trucks that came every other Friday during the warm months...The cons: the coffee was mediocre at best & the CAD system was Solid Edge, not Solidworks...
better than some but still the coffee you expect when its free
Database Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 24, 2017
It's a family owned business, which has its pros and cons . One of the biggest pros of working here is feeling like you're with family. This can be a con since employees tend to have a very lax demeanor and can be very unprofessional in their communication and approach to problem solving.
Robotic Welder (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – February 21, 2017
It is a good place for someone new to manufacturing to get experience. For someone who has been in manufacturing at other companies it can be very frustrating and the pay for most jobs is not the best.
for the most part very good people to work for/with.
Horrible for welders...High Turnover because of pay.

This is the first time i ever posted on a company, the worst company i ever worked for ..Pay is awful for welders ! they want a lot for very little money and only hispanics in management positions.They pay sucks because they always have folks they can pay cheaper ..This isn't a job for real welders ...you just running stringer welds vertical ..welds dont even have to look good that's why pay sucks ! Mostlly production is putting toghter as many seats as possible.No room ever for promotion with the Hispanic clique in company from HR to production..Mostly ex-cons they give the jobs so they can pay cheap for the work.

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 2, 2016
"Good Ol Boy" company culture. Promotions and bonuses are based upon who you know and not On performance. H.R Dept. Is by far the worst when dealing with employees and conducting business in a professional manner. Management is not on the same page and constantly pointing fingers among each other. Last but not least the location is high in crime. Employees have experienced car theft and had their vehicles broken into on various occasions.
