I enjoy working for this company however the industry is unstable therefore job security is low.

Accomplishments, and everyday brought something new.
Forklift Operator warehouse associate (Former Employee), Hillsboro, ORFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: vacation time, 3 days off, 12 hour shifts
Cons: unstable working environment.
Getting a pass down from previous shift, great communication between others was needed. Check computer system constantly (every 10-15 min) for parts needed to be pulled, delivered, and transact out of inventory for broken machines and preventative maint. Offload and confirm counts of received items, then receive the product into inventory using the – more... computer. Pulling, staging, and transacting product for the next days shipments.

Learned to operate a reach truck, accurately and efficiently while keeping safety in mind at all times. Great inventory management skills.

All employees and management were always assisting others to make a great team effort to complete every job that was being accomplished. Management listened to safety and operational concerns brought up in weekly and monthly meetings.

Hardest part about the job was to always double check items and inventory, while having to rush, to deliver parts and pulling orders.

The most enjoyable parts, i would have to say is that it was always a learning process, "never a dull moment". the satisfaction of knowing everyday after clocking off, that the job was done correct and efficiently. – less

Factory floor right across the office
Software Developer Intern (Former Employee), Hillsboro, ORSeptember 13, 2012
Pros: nice people
Cons: database behind is so mess-up
You can really get a sense of how the product lines are doing right across the office! Sometimes you can develop a tracking system, and go into the factory floor to verify the accuracy.

Overall ok place to work, but not challenging.
Operator Tech (Current Employee), Hillsboro, ORJuly 7, 2012
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: low pay/not challenging
OK place to work. Pay is on the low end. Shutdowns for 1 week or more in December appears to be the norm (you have to use vacation or go on unemployment).

The job is good and the people are nice.
Operations technician (Current Employee), Hillsboro, ORJune 21, 2012
Pros: the pay is good and the people are nice. the job duties aren't too demanding.
Cons: the temp agency have all workers an ultimatum to move areas or be fired.
I have worked at Solarworld for a little over a year and overall I liked my job. The people are nice and the work isn't too demanding.
A typical day at work would include checking on how much time is left until a wire saw is finished cutting through an ingot. Once it is finished I have to unload it clean it and send t to the next area.
