Welder Assembly and Fabrication (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 14, 2016
Great Place to work, lots of benefits, fast HR department if you have any issues, they help you through out everything you need, would love to go back to work there but too bad we got laid off because of oil and gas crisis.
assembler (Current Employee) – n. Canton – December 23, 2014
From looking through the other reviews I can see that any location that you work at pay is an issue. My experience at Powell has not been pleasant. From favoritism to looking down on someone for having to much experience for a job. It is a great stepping stone and learning platform, but for what they expect you to do the pay is awful. My co-workers are the best part of my day, almost like family. Management is clueless, there is no communication and the leads care less and less each day. The company has asked for cost saving ideas from us and over the last 2 years we have saved 2 million still our raises have amounted to nothing but a slap in the face.
Busy, but productive. Learned many different skills from the more senior employees. Poor management. Dealing wi constant emergency break downs. The accomplishment of knowing I contributed to the on going success of the company.

Powell has its ups and downs like every organization. The people (co-workers) are some of the best people to work with. In the last few years communication has been pretty poor from upper management. Powell is struggling to diversify themselves while trying to still hold on to the culture that made them successful. I hope they figure it out.

Fun work place with a great team leader that's very supportive. Manger was great with making a personal connection with every person on his staff. Every individual was willing to help you learn new things everyday
Do not recomend to work there.. Supervisors have their favorite people if ur late or want a day off and ur not his favorite ginnie pig good luck. To much pressure. I caint beleave i waisted a year of my life working there. The raises suck youll get 10 cents a year
Wire Person (Former Employee) – Houston, Texas – August 3, 2015
I typical day at work was to have a safety meeting in the morning and then go to work. I learned how wire transformers and lug wires. The management was very nice you could go talk to the Managers about anything. All my co-worker was older then me I was the youngest at the company. The hardest part at Powell was fitting in the small spaces.

I enjoy being at work I really like what I do the first thing that I do before starting a job is to check all paperwork (blueprints), according to tha prints we start working in a safely manner always. I learned a lot in this company working as a team , in a safe way.
Inventory Control /Material Returns Coordinator (Current Employee) – Houston,tx – January 9, 2015
A typical day at work starts out with a toolbox meeting. in this meeting we talk about safety and any other department issues. It’s like a family here at Powell where all of my co-workers are nice and try to do the best job they can. The management here is flexible and will allow you to learn each and every station of your department so you have a lot of knowledge when and if you move to other departments. You learn a lot about Oracle, our current MRP that's being used and inventory control. The hardest part of this job is making sure everyone else is on the same page but is also happens to be the most enjoyable part as well. I love the art of negotiating and coming up with creative ways to fix common opportunities.
the company pays for school
i want to work in an area that is not available to me here.
