Financial team dictates over production needs
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Walla Walla, WAMay 8, 2016
This is a great company to work for with lots of technological exposure in a smaller community. However, there is a lot of micro management by accounting/ finance teams without truly knowu=ing what it takes to achieve what is asked of the production teams and plant. Due to this disconnect there is often stops in production to change direction instead of a smooth transition production flow.
Pros
Lots of technology
Cons
a lot of micromanagement

Contributor (Current Employee) –  Walla Walla, WAFebruary 23, 2015
The company is a good company that is going through some major changes. Diversity is needed and processes are changing. The management is working hard to create a road map of the future but often it comes at a steep price. The hardest part of the job is conflict management. Hard times press others for real solutions but funding is an issue. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customers but the most frustrating is the culture.

Good skilled workers, Bad management
Worker (Former Employee) –  walla walla waApril 23, 2013
Work begins on time at your station. It looks bad that the workers are on time and management shows up whenever they want to! 10 hr shifts for 4 days a week. They hire way too much management than they need. Management never tells you the truth about what is going on. Parts are never on time so you can't beat the deadline therefore late shipments. Bonuses and raises happen rarely except for management and executives. The length of time being employed there doesn't matter when it comes to layoffs. Co-workers always willing to help.
Pros
good co-workers
Cons
management

Poor management
Welder (Former Employee) –  Walla WallaFebruary 12, 2015
They treat employees on the shop floor ever poor. It's not a good place to work if you are a Skilled tradesmen. The management constantly over looks the problems. I would say it's just not the company it used to be.

Soft company in the industry, employment goes up and down.
Global EHS Compliance Officer (Former Employee) –  Walla Walla, WAJune 22, 2013
Key Technology, is an employer that their employment goes up and down. They change executives almost monthly...you never know who is in charge. They change management often also.

Working conditions are good if you don't have to work in the welding shop. The welding shop has a high amount of fumes.

A lot of back stabbers.
Pros
nice building, nice yard.
Cons
you never know when it is your turn to go...

great place to work
Student Intern (Current Employee) –  Walla Walla, WAOctober 28, 2013
Key Technology was a great place to work, I got to work on something new everyday. I learned a lot about what goes into manufacturing a product from sales to shipping. The management at Key was great, they were understanding and would also listen. My co-workers were extremely nice, they would help you at the drop of a hat and had a positive attitude.
