Lead Operator (Current Employee) –  LaGrange, GAJune 4, 2017
When I first get to work I would have a meeting with team members, and let them know the schedule for the week and remind everyone to wear their PPE and be safe. I learned to be a leader and make wise decision to make the team be more efficient. The hardest part was having to write someone up,
Pros
They paid a good salary
Cons

great place to gain experience
Lead operator (Former Employee) –  LaGrange, GAJanuary 13, 2017
Very long hours and days. Even a lazy worker is a good one just to be able to show up for the demanding schedule. You have an option to work for advancement of remain at the level you choose. Hard work does pay off if you are willing to do the job and make it a priority .

Great Co-workers
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) –  LaGrange, GAApril 13, 2016
The work hours are long and you're on your feet mostly. I learned how to identify cold welds/missing welds, how to operate some of the machinery using the remote and how to perform quality control inspections. The most enjoyable part about the job to me was my co-workers. The hardest part was the long hours.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Short breaks, some management

Could be a better workplace
Clerk (Current Employee) –  LaGrange, GAMarch 30, 2016
The workplace would be a lot better if the management team would act professionally and speak with people in a more professional manner. I have to make sure the attendance is done and completed. Turn in all paperwork at the end of the shift. Have to be creative to get the job done. Use time wisely. The hardest part of the job is dealing with management that does not like to resolve problems before an altercation of any kind happen. I love my co-workers as long as everyone is doing their part the shift will go by smoothly. The most enjoyable part of the job is actually getting it done.
Pros
Working in the Office and learning new things
Cons
Being belittled in front of people

Assembly Worker (Former Employee) –  LaGrange, GAMarch 10, 2016
Sewon would be a good job if the hours was not so long. A typical day is working with hot metal and robots. The pay is decent. In my experience management was not that good but still an ok place.
