Pros: large corporation, good benefits, remarkable campus
Cons: company was in decline at the time
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.
