Transition of TV industry to digital was difficult for GVG
Stockroom Supervisor, Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Nevada City, CAMarch 15, 2014
I started as an QC Inspector, and learned to check parts against the blueprints to insure all dimensions were within tolerance. I communicated with engineers to assure that the specifications on all incoming parts were being met. I was instrumental in revising the inspection procedure of printed circuit boards to more accurately reflect needed specifications.

As the company contracted and divisions merged, I was moved into Receiving where I became proficient at data entry.

My final months there I managed a stockroom containing a five million dollar inventory.

The hardest part of working at GVG during that decade was watching the continual contraction of the workforce. As I recall, the workforce contracted from over 1600 to less than 400 during the decade I was employed there.

Management was fair and very professional.

Co-workers were a varied lot. Many were excellent folks to work with.
Pros
large corporation, good benefits, remarkable campus
Cons
company was in decline at the time
