Production Worker (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – April 8, 2016
A cool place to work but it is a training facility and you learn a variety of jobs, Grommet assembly, deburring, mechanical assembly and a few more. But with limited math skills you won't get far at Orion.

I have worked for Orion for close to 5 years, and can say that the company has taught me a lot of useful office skills in my time there. The most enjoyable part of the job was that there was always something new and interesting to do, nothing really ever got dull. Co-workers were friendly, which made it easy to smile daily.

Aerospace Mech. Assembly (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – March 10, 2015
When I first started I was working at a assembly table with a group of people for a month. It was a easy sit down job were you assemble the pieces together and send them to different areas of the department until they are shipped. It was fun and I enjoyed this part of the job. Then I was moved to a shipping and receiving area and I didn't like my experience I had difficulty staying on my feet for long hours as I shipped the parts and I explained them that I didn't want to work at that area but they did anyway so I had to tough it out for month before they sent me to another assembly working area. I enjoyed it but at the same time my co-workers didn't like I had to sit down as I work and that's when they have to let me go at the end of the month because I physically cannot meet there physical expectations. they told me if I can find a way to lose weight and gain so stamina they would hire me because I have good skills but I need to gain stamina.
