Productive manufacturing environment with great benefits
Engineering/Maintenance Intern (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKMarch 30, 2016
Maintenance/Engineering meeting every morning with structured agenda. Learned different techniques for hydraulics and pneumatic systems. Learned automation processes and robot maintenance. Also became familiar with shaft and bearing mechanisms. Worked under a maintenance manager, two engineers, and a plant manager. Co-workers were well trained engineers and maintenance staff. The most difficult part of my job was learning the algorithms and control systems for the conveyor systems and automation process because it was out dated. The most enjoyable part of my job was communicating back and forth with my supervisors and assembling robot parts for Ryobi 6-axis robot arms.
Pros
Progressive work environment, project based, time and a half on overtime.
Cons
Too much down time, not enough challenge to do better.

worst job environment ever
line operator (Former Employee) –  Taylorsville, ncMay 11, 2015
It's 12 hour shift that switches night and day shift every month, in your days off you're required to call and see if they need you, they don't make clear what has to be done for advancement and when you have completed everything they want they push it off as long as they can, it's super hot and bad air quality, managers will physically shove you and yell and cuss in your face, human resources doesn't care, you sometimes get breaks during you're 12 hour shift and when you do they're only 10 minutes, managers will come in drunk, unless your super desperate for a job don't go here, and even then it's questionable
Pros
free breakfast at monthly safety meetings
Cons
short breaks, sorry management, no advancement, low pay for the work, rotating shift, call-in, no family time
