Finisher (Former Employee) – Fletcher, NC – February 10, 2016
Some physically demanding positions. I learned how to manufacture furniture.Management was not always fair. Most co-workers were good people. Sometimes overtime was demanding and excessive. The pay and the benefits were the very best part of the job.

automatic roll shear or sheetline operator (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – April 10, 2014
a typical day was to punch in and run the production required to meet the daily schedule. learned all about dies and how to set them up and run presses as efficiently as possible. The management at Steelcase expected the worker to do his job, be cooperative and be ready and able to adapt to change immediately which was crucial in a just in time production process, and be at work every day. My co- workers were hard working good people, I liked most all of my co- workers. The hardest part of my job could at times be the machine not operating properly itself. the most enjoyable part of my job was when I conquered a problem die the dept. was having trouble with or was able to get a part ran out in time in very short notice.
