Dealer Service Representative/Inside Sales (Former Employee) –  Louisville, COAugust 18, 2016
Amazing folks here at Shimano that put forth their own passion and energy into every single product. Learned that you can always lean on others for help and the team work side is unlike any other company. Establishing the relationship with the accounts and the people that work here is what keeps the wheels turning.
Pros
Ping pong table for stress relief
Cons
Everything is open, no cubicles.

Packing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJanuary 8, 2014
The work in the warehouse is easy, but long hours constantly. The pay is minimum wage, so even with a bunch of overtime you still don't benefit. Management is clueless on how to operate the daily functions, and as a result a lot of overtime is incurred that could be easily avoided. They have temp workers that have been there over two years.
Pros
good co-workers, job security
Cons
sticklers, on, breaks, and, lunches, more, concerned, with, being, a

ASSEMBLER/PACKER (Former Employee) –  Irvine, CAJuly 19, 2013
A regular day at Dynacast would be at starting of shift make sure my machine is functioning properly check oil level and make sure it has no spills, as i was second shift i like to double check my machine in case first shift missed something. As the press machine was making parts i would inspect the parts quickly and accurately to make sure they had no defect or if it did i would toss it or if fixable i would set aside to later sand/ or burr down the defective area.I get along extremely well with people, i enjoyed my co-workers not only at this job but at all my jobs thus far, never had no problems or conflicts, as i am very kept to myself. The hardest part of this job was to try and determine/ guess when the machine would throw hot pieces of scrap up in the air, not that the machine would notify but having to always be aware and alert of the situation was concerning as i didn't want any one, or myself to get hurt.
Pros
company appreciates employees and management treats well.
Cons
laid off a 30% of newer employees due to lack of work.
