LMI Aerospace Auburn Plant is producing defective parts for BOEING
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – April 8, 2016
I brought a lot of experience to LMI and knowing this, I believed I would move up to a management position. Was I ever wrong! First of all, there is an "Inner Circle" of long-term employees that make life very difficult for the new people, it's so difficult that most new employees quit within the first week of employment. I've been in many meetings where the long-term employees would laugh and joke about how long a certain new employee would last.
Management made it very difficult for me to maintain my sanity as an inspector, my job is to find nonconformities and I found plenty. Pretty much on an hourly basis. These were not just little discrepancies, this stuff I wouldn't use on my car let alone an aircraft. Instead of listening to my reason they automatically would dispute that anything was wrong even before looking at the discrepant part. To top it off the Quality Manager can not interpret a specification correctly. I tried to explain several discrepancies to him but he disputed with emotions instead of logic.
This is a FACT, LMI/Auburn is manufacturing aircraft parts for BOEING that are defective!
Management is committing FRAUD
