CNC Operator (Former Employee) – Grafton, WI – August 10, 2016
When i first started working there I loved everything about the job, I was picking up new skills and learning how to use more power tools that i had never used before and became very comfortable. But i ran into some issues with my shift supervisor. We didn't get along even a little.
Any (Current Employee) – Loyalhanna, PA – September 11, 2016
Pace is the first place I have been that cares about personal safety outside of work as well as workplace safety. This is the first company I have seen that has chaplains available corporate wide, as well as on site health clinics for its employees.
The nature of the business isn't the cleanest, but it sure feels like a family.
Family friendly, safety, wellness
lower pay than the rest of the area, low 401K match
Summer Hire (Former Employee) – Grafton, WI – July 15, 2016
Typical day at work was whatever tedious jobs they could find us. I learned how a dye casting plant works. Management was very prejudiced. Coworkers made the best of the situation and it helped time pass. Hardest part of the job was the smell. Most enjoyable part of the job was going home.
CNC Operator/Machinist (Former Employee) – Grafton, WI – May 27, 2016
For the most part my supervisor was very engaged with our crew, as a result work was enjoyable. Great atmosphere to work in I learned a lot working for Pace. Quality and precision was my main focus; I learned to think of myself as the customer, which was a strategy I used when trying to satisfy our vendors.

Die Cast Trimmer (Former Employee) – Grafton, WI – April 11, 2016
I really enjoyed working in such a great work environment with great co -workers. It was always a fast paced environment but you would always be helped if needed. The most enjoyable part about the job was being able to be cross trained to work in other departments so that you can advance when the time became available. I really learned a great deal about die - casting and the quality of each piece that was made at the job.
Floater/ trim press (Former Employee) – Harrison, AR – December 1, 2015
When I was put on medical leave this company took great care of me. They are a wonderful company to work for. Management was awesome, I remember the VP of the company would come down on the floor and was a down to earth individual we were treated like a friend, coworker, he learned from us as we learned from him, he would listen to us and ask us how we can make the work place more productive, and work for management as well as the employees. Hardest part of the job was when the parts were stacked taller than me and weighed more than me with the added card board, but it ended up giving the co-workers a good laugh. The most enjoyable part of my job was the people I worked with, I could not have asked for a better environment to work in.
cold winters, hot summers but then again those could be pros as well

Typical day was hot and demanding. Learned ho to run a spectrometer and how to alloy metal. Management was so so and the co workers were all easy to get along with. The hardest part of the job was the heat and the best part of the job was the heat also.

Trim Press Operator (Former Employee) – Maple Lake, MN – January 31, 2015
Report to assigned machine for the day. Look over work instructions. Ensure machine is prepped for the day's work. Operate the machine to produce quality parts and troubleshoot to maintain quality standards. I have learned it's essential to work to uphold safety protocols and company standards. The hardest part of the job is prototyping new parts. The most enjoyable part of the job are the troubleshooting aspects.
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) – North Billerica, MA – June 13, 2015
Everyone is always willing to help another out making sure that everything get done correctly and timely. You are expected to work on your own and keep up with everything. Management does need to be organized differently.
Quality Engineer in Automotive Accounts (Former Employee) – Grafton, WI – December 16, 2013
Pace is a good place to learn. Unfortunately, most of the time is spent fire fighting. Little time is available for planning and self development. At Pace, you develop by encounter problems after one another. Management are good at various level, but can be frustrating because not everyone is on board with the same ideas and pace.
Lots of senior talents to learn from. This can be a good or bad thing.
Receptionist/Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 21, 2013
Everyday is different and you just work as you go. Learning how to deal with everyday new challenges. I love how management multi-task everyday challenges. My co-workers are very friendly and helpful in times of need. The hardest part of the job is trying to get more work done when you don't the proper tools to do your job. The most enjoyable part of the day is 2pm when I know I have 1 1/2 to go before my day ends.
