STOCKROOM CLERK (Former Employee) –  Davis, CAJanuary 5, 2014
At Schilling Robotics I started working on pulling kit on a daily basis, which consist of accurately and quickly assembles spares kits for our QA and the manufacturing dept. I also enter work order data for spares kit and data for spares kits and close to stock as well Stock materials and inventory received. As well as Count inventory according to scheduled cycle counts. Also assist shipping department with pulling sales-order components for daily shipments. I did that for about 3 mounts. Now I work the swing shift Checking kits, receive kits, and close work orders, complete shortage, put away parts, and help with other departments with issuing part's, and maintaining the stockroom Report all night’s activities to leads and supervisor. And get the stockroom ready for the next day..
Pros

Great Product substandard Management
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) –  Shingle Springs, CANovember 19, 2013
The mid-level site manager is a bad boss. Here is what I experienced.

Bad bosses are arrogant, prideful, inflexible and always right.
Bad bosses are unprincipled, untrustworthy, misrepresent the truth and lie.
Bad bosses fail to create clear direction and clarify performance expectations.
Bad bosses are ineffective at providing effective performance feedback and recognition.
Bad bosses are really bad communicators.
Bad bosses take credit, avoid blame and are not accountable.
Bad bosses do not plan effectively, are crisis-driven and lack vision.
Bad bosses do not develop their people or help them get ahead.
Bad bosses do not solve problems or improve processes.
Bad bosses are technically incompetent and lack talent.
Bad bosses make unwise, ill-informed and ineffective decisions.
Bad bosses are self-serving, lack focus and follow through

This is what I was looking for when I started this job.

Good bosses are humble, confident, flexible and calm
Good bosses are honest, have integrity, sense of humor, and respectful
Good bosses are active listeners, inspiring, and creative and value others
Good bosses are organized, know how to delegate, collaborative
Good bosses are committed, positive attitude, ability to inspire and intuition

Conclusions: The site was is incompetent, unethical and devoid of any leadership skills……should be removed from his post. It’s really hard to believe that upper level management has not realized this and taken immediate action to fix the systemic problem.

The results being hundreds of thousands of wasted dollars, sub-par
  more... process control, lack of information available to make informed business decisions and no opportunity for career growth.  less
Pros
Working with some smart engineers
Cons
Working with some substandard management
