Design Drafter (Former Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – December 5, 2016
I learned a lot about working with Stainless Steel sheet metal. During some hard times the CEO didn't hide when he had to lay people off. The managers and coworkers are supportive and help you learn before you make mistakes and help you recover from any mistakes. There are plenty off activities outside of work that they sponsor and they try to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – May 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.
Welder 1 (Current Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – November 23, 2015
refreshed in what I already knew but ready to move forward with a different company. I enjoy working with my co workers but there is no room for advancement with this company and the pay is low grade compared to what the skill set it.
Family events, very relaxed work environmetn
Low pay, no room for advancement, lack of communication
Contributor (Current Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – February 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.
Welder (Former Employee) – Walla Walla – February 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.

Student Intern (Current Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – October 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.
Worker (Former Employee) – walla walla wa – April 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.
