Good pay for this area. Great coworkers and shop level leaders. Opportunity to learn different sheet metal manufacturing skills and equipment operations. They make operators, not just pedal pushers.
Lots of mandatory overtime, including most Saturdays. Lots of layoffs, due to micromanagement of weekly jobs. Employees not laid off have to work overtime to complete work orders on time. This uncertain scheduling along with no notice mandatory overtime creates a lot of tension.
Make no mistake, this is a micromanaged company. All good deeds are not rewarded and in the end you are another clock number
Good pay, good coworkers, opportunity to learn skills
Go from overtime to layoffs week to week. Micro managed
Final Assembly (Former Employee) – Jasper, GA – November 18, 2015
This job was a great first job & for some a great career. For myself this was just a stepping stone to finding my forever career. I was constantly on my feet, which I did not mind. We would have some slow days and some days where we were slammed. I preferred staying busy. I learned about packing a crating large commercial items & also learned how to operate a fork lift. I never minded my job, but I always new it wasn't something I would be doing forever.
Group leader/assembler (Current Employee) – Jackson,Tn – October 18, 2015
Royston LLC is a company that allows me to work hands-on with materials and specific tools. I work alongside co-workers, that seem more like teammates, with the same goal in mind. We strive for top of the line production and product.
Metal, Plastic shear, and slitter machine operator (Former Employee) – Royston, GA – June 24, 2014
I would make sure my machine was working properly I would go to the desk and get my orders then I would look at each order and see what type of metal was needed then I would go and retrieve my metal on the fork lift then I would take it back to my machine and read my blue prints and cut the metal according to the blue prints
It is a good company to work when they have the work.
On-site Field Engineer (Former Employee) – Royston, GA – August 20, 2012
A typical day begins with removing the old equipment from the stores and carefully measuring for the installation of the new equipment. I learned to measure twice and cut once is always an important step. My co-workers were a hard working crew and I enjoyed working with them. The hardest part of the job was working around the store's business hours. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the jobs completed on schedule.
