Anodizer (Current Employee) – Tualatin, OR – June 22, 2016
Management changes often and every time they bring in someone new to bring up production, they gush and gush about it but then they start the blame game and the upper management goes on a witch hunt.
* crew on the floor are great together but there is a LOT of backstabbing *constantly hear about these values but it never applies to the floor or anyone *each new manager finds someone to target for firing *constant turmoil *low pay *not much recognition
Find somewhere else that pays better and gives you room to advance. This company is failing.
All around (Former Employee) – Tualatin Or – June 17, 2016
The management team is uncaring, the workers are unappreciated and the pay is minimum at best. They don't train anyone and set them up to fail! They move people around in positions and take away pay, and they put a lot of pressure on people with no assistance. They don't treat their employees or customers very well. They don't communicate what is going on, and they don't cross train. They lie to get you in the door. Corporate pretend they care but don't prove it
no weekends off, low pay, no training, no communication
Chem Tech/Cell Lead (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – May 15, 2016
I review the schedule for the day, order down parts to have processed. The co workers are friendly and easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job is the constant turn over of temps and having to retrain people every day. I do enjoy working hard and doing problem solving.
there is always work
they are making it almost impossible to have weekends off.
Anodize Crew (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – March 25, 2016
We would anodize everything to airplane parts to pen caps. I was the only person who would anodize and dyed the Demorini baseball bats because of my eye for detail. Fun place to work just wasn't the healthiest.
Co workers were cool.
Dealing with all the chemicals with minimum safety equipment
Line Operator (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – January 18, 2016
A typical day of work was sometimes slow and overwhelming. I learned a lot about production work and cranes. Management was rather on the poor side, never cared to much about workers, you could do 100 things right and never get appreciation. The second you would do just the smallest thing wrong you would hear about it from team leaders, to supervisors, to even the plant manager. Co-workers were more than likely the best part about the job. The hardest part of the job would have to be the amount of mandatory weekends you would have to work.
After working at several places as a lab tech I found Pioneer to be the best. If you need to talk to management you can go right to them and talk to them.
I see temp employees get hired on regularly unlike at other jobs were the temp position never ends. The routine may get boring after the first few months but every once in a while you get to be part of a new customer and get to be apart of the decision making process.
Overall great place if you like being rewarded for your efforts.
Learning new departments, work parties, and getting raises for job well done
Quality control, Area leader (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – November 10, 2015
I was a area leader, also checked finished products to make sure they were in spec. I learned about anodized products and how they are made. Communication is essential to getting along with management. I have learned that sometimes taking a deep breath and letting things go is the best way to deal with co-workers. Changing of management was a little frustrating. Getting raises for job well done, and company parties were one of the most enjoyable part of this job.
Loved it here, this field of work is where I need to be.
Parts Hanger (Former Employee) – Oshkosh, WI – September 23, 2015
Great place to work. I loved all my managers and coworkers. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the hot parts that came off the line. The most enjoyable part was always being busy, I never had to stand around. I like fast paced, hard work, and this is what this field of work is going to show me.
Tooling Technician (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – June 16, 2015
I arrive to open up at 5:30 am. Turn on all the equipment before the employees get here. I build and repair tooling and racking for production. I also step up to maintenance when needed. The drive to work is a little farther than I like.
I did like my job there but then you realize exactly how they are.
Line operator trainee (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – June 9, 2015
They always kept me busy up until i got injured on the job and was no longer able to perform my duties due to an injury that i received working there and because of another disability it was not healing properly or in a timely manner for them so they fired me.
Production (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – August 28, 2014
I went to work everyday, racked/ unracked parts, packed them in buckhorns, filled out the proper paperwork, and took them to shipping. I learned some, about anodizing. 2nd shift supervisor needed to be more of a boss, less of a friend. Coworkers were alright, some brought their home life drama with them to work, others acted innapropriate, etc.
inspector packer labor organizer (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – August 4, 2014
A variety of tasks and equipment, product to handle. A mix of standing and sitting is a plus. The hardest part of the job is being on concrete floors.(no pun intended) It is interesting to know what the product's use is. I have worked on things for the ISS. Nice to know I could be a part of that.Co workers were nice people.(most of them)
hard floors, and the job can be tough on your hands
