Horrible place to work.
Foundry processor (Former Employee) –  Columbia, PAJuly 26, 2016
Management terrible, Union unsupportive, coworkers snitches and back stabbers, Work environment and air quality really bad. It wasn't always like this but with changes of management it has gotten progressively worse. Never know what hours or how many you are working. Horrible nightmare.
Pros
Good pay.
Cons
Pretty much everything . Don't make plans because they switch your hours, shifts, and depts in a days notice.

Room for a lot of improvement
Machine operator (Former Employee) –  Cleveland TnNovember 12, 2014
Typical day consists of building yokes.....soldering copper meter yokes. ....easy job and very interesting. If you like a lot of overtime especially in the summer when everything is going on outside of work then you're good to go. ...if you like to hear a lot of cursing and vulgar talk all the time even from managers. ...you're good there too. ..if you don't need anyone to train you how to do your job. you're still good....if you like Supervisors who get mad and curse because they don't have a clue how to motivate people other than to curse and get mad....still good....oh yeah. ....no teamwork here....i could keep going.....
Pros
great benefits
Cons
too much overtime. .poor management

Good pay, bad management.
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Hammond IndianaJanuary 4, 2015
Good pay compared to most shops. Some exceptional perks, like two years vacation the first year of employment along with five sick/personal days and yearly raises. The healthcare package was comprehensive, health, dental, vision, ad&d, life insurance, and 401k, but every year the healthcare premiums increased significantly, so that the raise didn't even matter because it came right back out in the healthcare premiums. The first year there I was able to afford the option 90, the best coverage. Upon leaving, I had over the years been forced down to the lower option 70 because premiums spiked literally every year. That's unheard of. But the biggest deficit of the company is the incompetence in management. No communication, great ignorance to operations, lack of concern for productivity, therefore tooling wasn't purchased, equipment wasn't fixed, and substandard valves were customarily shipped out the door to customers. Their idea seemed to be, just get it out the door. I don't care if you have to machine it with a hand grinder. We machinist can indeed make an exception due to lack of tooling and yet get the job done, but here the exception was the rule and normal way of business. No tooling, but get it done. Hope this helped.
Pros
pay, vacation, personal days.
Cons
incompetent management, rundown and inadequate tooling and equipment, unaffordable healthcare.

Injection Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, TNNovember 21, 2013
A typical day at work included running one of the Sanyu injection machines, which included various different sizes of iron castings ranging from 2 inch to 16 inch. Each day was different b/c the supervisor would switch us on the parts we ran everyday so as to prevent burnout or complacency. I learned much about injection machines, in this case rubber injection, and how they work with our overall water system, the critical parts that need to be done right to ensure that the common public gets quality clean water into their homes or businesses. Management was generally helpful and supportive, reviewing your work and making sure that you were up to standard on quality, double checking your work and providing training when necessary. My co-workers were efficient and helpful, but also fun to work with, a lot of different personalities that made for a interesting mix making sure that no day was the same. The hardest part of the job was getting used to the physicality of it. This job will get you in shape, and develop you muscles, but the first few weeks are no picnic, very hard, if you are not already in shape;. But once you get used to it, its not bad at all. The most enjoyable part of the job was the manual labor part of the job, being able to get lost in the rhythm of running the machine, putting parts out, and before you knew it the day was done and you didn't even really feel like you had been at work for 8 hours.
