Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Bluffton, IN – June 16, 2017
Good pay good benefits management and supervisors don't care about the employees busy times are long hours and slow times they try to lay off or fire people lack of time training on equipmentt no effort put back into the machine or the company
I was in charge of tooling for machines that cut auto parts, which included repairs, new orders, delivery to engineers of parts. It was a good company to work for. I enjoyed the fast paced production setting. The company relocated back to Michigan.
supplying exceptional tooling, close work with engineers
Senior Network Specialist (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MI – April 10, 2017
Started at the peak of a company only a few years old, but which had bought several mature quality companies. CIO was wonderful guy, but he was put out in a cost-cutting push right before the recession. Infrastructure was then outsourced to Perot Systems, but the helpdesk, engineering systems, and applications support teams were not. This accentuated political issues which already existed.

Quality Assurance Associate (Former Employee) – Bluffton, IN – March 6, 2017
This used to be a good place to work, now there is no leadership and a total disregard for employees. The culture of the plant has gone down hill in the past 6 months and with the lingering merger looming, all morale in the building has disappeared.
Job Setter, Machine Operator (Former Employee) – New Castle, IN – January 23, 2017
Well I would get there a half hour early to get the machines running and make sure all the tools was changed from the last shift and make sure that the parts were in gauge and if not I would change the tools and get them set and I would gage the parts to make sure everything was ready to go when the guys came in to run the machines and than I would retool the old tools and get those set just in case one of the machines broke the tools and than we would go home at 2:30p.m. unless they asked us to stay over and than we would
Great people to work with that could run the machines and know what to look for so great team effort
I enjoyed my career. I did not enjoy upper management.
HANDPACKER/CNC OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Saint Marys, PA – October 1, 2016
I ran anywhere from 1 to 5 lathes on a daily basis. I did quality checks, used a micrometer to size parts, and changed tools. I learned how to do all of the above as well as use a comparator as well completing basic operator maintenance on my machines. We had setups which tore down and rebuild as well as reprogram all of our lathes. The management was less than poor. The hardest part of my job was running all 5 lathes at one time and also running the "piston" department of the plant. No one ever liked to run this area. I always enjoyed most of my co-workers, new learning experiences, and also running the "2pc." area of the plant... it was my favorite.
