Industrial Electrician (Former Employee), Mattoon, IL – October 2, 2015
Pros: Pay and Benefits
Cons: 12 Hour shifts
Overall tasks were not completely explained, as to what was needed or wanted. As a new employee, the projects seemed to be led without clear objectives with to many different inputs. However, overall an excellent place to work. Co-workers were very helpful, but the floor management and IT department were at times difficult to deal with or unresponsive.
Built many strong business relationships that created value.

CW1 (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – October 1, 2015
Pros: great pay
Cons: union shop
Start time is 0600 and goes till 1430. A typical day would be standing for long periods of time with two 10 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch each day. Great people to work for and great fellow employees. Plenty of red tape and politics in the company due to the union being present. The most enjoyable time I had there is my friends and family.
Polisher/ CNC Machinist (Former Employee), Waukesha, WI – September 27, 2015
Pros: Holiday bonuses, trust, and respect
Cons: long hours, small shop, 5 employees
this was my starting place. And I was involved in every job that came through the doors, from start to finish. My employer trusted my expertise and judgement. Would have been a great place to work through retirement.
Atypical day at work. I would come in every day assign and set production priorities for my team. The management was open minded to new ideals. I had a great team of co-workers. The hardest part of my job was to make sure were had material on hand to meet production needs.
Very busy but very challenging. Change in management destroyed the place. While I always received very good reviews, I hated the process - used forced ranking of A-C and 1-3 to see how you did. Only 10% could be an A1 and 10% had to be a C3 (asked to go). Did not seem conducive to true feedback.

B-10 Assembler (Former Employee), Bloomington, Indiana – September 16, 2015
Pros: Work Envirement was normally good
Cons: Being laid off because your job was outsourced to Mexico
A typical day working on an assembly line can be stressful. You have so many minutes to place the part you are required to assemble to each unit. You are a family with the employees on your line. Most everyone works as a team and helps each other out.
