Large automatic press operator (Former Employee), Simpsonville, KYJune 28, 2014
Pros: steady work
Cons: not much advancement
It was steady as we go for a lot of years. But even before recession in 2008 it lost alot of business to oversea's markets. The plant did close in 2008, I was told.

Billing Administrator (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CAJune 9, 2014
I loved working here but as time passed I was given more dutiesand not being compensated, I allowed this to happen for almost a year and a half until I had enough. The promises that were made to me never happened and I had to move on.

Safety Coordinator (Current Employee), Dallas, TxMay 28, 2014
Pros: off by 4pm, sat and sun off
Cons: short break, communication
When I get into work in the morning, first thing I do is check the e-mails on my Outlook Inbox. Then I go over my event planner and see what following events or appointments are coming up. I then do my safety walk through of our production plant, receiving, shipping, and office area and check for any violations (exit signs, fire extinguishers, tripping – more... hazards, PPE, safety signs, etc.). I then log in and write down my findings on an hourly basis. If it's the day for weekly fire extinguisher(62)/ eye wash station(8)/ exit sign check(23), I conduct this and write down my findings. If it is end of month, I do a riveter damage check(27), and safety supply room inventory. If we have a new hire that day, I train them Safety and OSHA wise. I may have to duplicate a form or flow chart and add or remove items on these forms. At this company I have learned how to work a manual press, automatic press, learned how to pack 1300 bed frames in one day. I learned how to type, microsoft office, how to make appointments, how to train, how to fax and scan, how to conduct Internal Audits, and how to conduct Inventory on raw material and finnished goods. I use a forklift when necessary to move material or machines. Management conducts meetings or BMP's. I am fortunate that my manager opened the door and put his trust and faith in me to become a Safety Coordinator. We have around 80 employees and Im happy to say I am friends with each one of them. I can also say that they are hard workers. I would have to say the hardest part of my job is doing something for the first time. That nervousness and wanting so much to do it right gets me, but as soon as I complete the task, I am so happy to conduct it again!! The most enjoyable part of my job is realizing how far I've come and much more I can accomplish!! – less

Competetive and fun workplace
Operator (Current Employee), Carthage, MoApril 23, 2014
Pros: free cookouts, bonuses, holiday pays and vacations
Cons: short breaks
Do different things each week, I learned to operate and work on the machine at the same time(operator tech). Manage to operate two machines at a time, and work with very kind colleagues.

The hardest part of my job is when I see my colleagues are not pulling their weight as the way they should and can't control the down time. But the most enjoyable – more... part is pretty much everything, will document everything you do when your down, working on your own with a less supervise as long as you do your part. – less

Driver (Former Employee), Edison, NJMarch 9, 2014
It Started great but after a while it turned out to be a hard place to work for, employee welfare was the last thing in this company's mind. I really hope it has changed in the last few years.

worker (Former Employee), dallasJanuary 7, 2014

Management was inexperienced, safety a complete joke, trying to fix broken machines with other broken parts, low pay, backstabbing coworkers. Not a good place to work if you value your health or safety.
