Overall employment with Materion Corp. has been a positive experience and has helped me to grow as an individual as well as a supervisor
Production Lead (Current Employee) – Buellton, CA – August 28, 2013
Materion's Management team has always had an open door policy and very helpful in all situations. I have enjoyed getting to know my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is not being able to meet a deadline because of circumstances beyond my control. The most enjoyable part of the job is meeting the day to day challenges of a deadline driven manufacturing company. At the end of the day feeling that I have accomplished my goals.
Shipping and Receiving/Driver (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – July 17, 2013
Even before I received the job with Materion there was problems with the company. I went on an interview where I landed the job and got a call the next day that there was an employment freeze. The company just let go 23 employees. I got another call for a different possession with Materion and took it. Two months later the CEO of the company left and was replaced. With a new CEO and Different possession I was to work 90 days and get a review to work full time. 90 days passed with me taking a week off for my wedding (which I told them about before my hire), and because of that I had to work another 90 days to get my review. My review was 3 out of 4 stars. The next month after my review the company had a meeting saying that consolidation was going to happen but, it was going to take some time. Less than a month after that I was brought to the side by my supervisor to tell me that the possession was to be dropped, and I was out. Working with the company that made me work for 6 months with out getting benefits stunk. They prolonged the process giving me false hope and was very wrong. The staff was delightful and hold nothing toward them but, HR department gave me such a run around that I do not recommend working for Materion.
