Overall I only worked for one branch of the company and I am sure this one branch is not indicative of the company as a whole.
Manufacturing, Melbourne, FL - February 15, 2015
A typical day of work was full and had many tasks. I interacted mostly on the electronics side of production and enjoyed the job I performed as well the tasks that were given. My boss felt confident enough to leave me with minimal to no supervision, but I also knew if I needed help with any situations he was there to help.

I feel that management as a whole was okay for the exception of one top manager. I feel that this person was in need of some definite people skills and interpersonal communication skills. I don't like to speak ill or negatively about anyone. There wasn't anything hard about the job and my co-workers from electronics were personable and amicable.
