Great place for a career in machining with good wages.
Machinist (Former Employee) – Amherst, OH – June 2, 2016
Nordson is a strong employer who has been a very beneficial company to the Amherst area for many years. Being employed at Nordson went well and it was a very enjoyable place to learn great things.A typical day at work can involve running production on a wide variety of CNC machines, or setting up new jobs for production. Each machinist is required to be able to set up and operate his own machine he is assigned to. The management of Nordson is very thorough and experienced. Their team works very closely together and are committed to 100% customer satisfaction The people i worked with have all had a great career with Nordson and have been able to provide very well for themselves as well as their families. The hardest part of the job is that sometimes on the newer machines they have, the programs for new parts aren't all proven out, and if you need to make revisions or edits to programs, quality control and the engineering staff aren't available to give you the okay to run the part, or help with problems. Most enjoyable part of the job is that it is one man to one machine, Union benefits, plenty of overtime and a pleasant environment.
