machinist (Former Employee) – Seattle, wa – December 21, 2014
This company has a lot of problems in upper management so it directly effects the people on the floor. They have burned a lot of bridges in their industry (not paying their bills). Not a positive place to work and they don't care about their employees. They hire inexperienced people at a higher wage than people that have been there for many years. Morale is bad overall. Its hard to respect your supervisors when they don't know anything about the job you're doing.
good place to learn, lots of overtime.
shady upper management, running the company into the ground.
Up for a raise since May 2012? Have not recieved that at level III mechanic.
Maintenance/Mechanic (Current Employee) – Tukwila, WA – September 7, 2012
Communication is a factor, see no job advanchments, to many chiefs,and bad decissions on maint. values, it's not about keeping machinery running thats a must for production, its the band-aids to make them run and cause further damage,don't get that for a corporation. Where are we going with this? Lay-offs? People can't live on that, when they have some pride in what they do, from the melt to the machine shop.
lunches, burgers? cost of living may help?
health care is great, lunch 1/2 hr for all or none.living costs are a must, stop the band-aid effect, take machine down and fix the problem not escalate it, find other solutions, ask for input.
