Excellent company, leader of titanium mill products
Production Planner (Former Employee) – Tustin, CA – January 26, 2016
Titanium Metals is owned by Precision Castparts who was bought by Berkshire Hathaway late 2015. The company is very large and in order to comply with SEC requirements, all administrative employees in our division did SOX testing on all aspects of the business. This included Accounting, Human Resources, Operations, etc.
My day consisted of purchased ingot as input to our forged products, managed inventory levels, created process orders in SAP to meet customer delivery demands, maintained company TOC charts, and contributed to weekly staff and planning meetings,
This was a fulfilling job, I believe there's never and end to ones learning. Management was in place, but needed work, a new company was in the process of taking over, PCC was buying the plant and it seemed as though they had management headed in the right direction.The hardest part of the job was the rumors and politics, because there were 400 people in this facilitiy.
Workday was busy but manageable. Maintained flow of material through department. Management was easy to work with and set obtainable goals. Hardest part of job was maneuvering the heavier pieces of material; this was not everyday. Most enjoyable were the co-workers. The majority were very easy to work with.
A typical day at work is the fast pace of operating heavy equipment machinery. What I've learn is how to utilize my time in a safe efficient manner to produce as much product as I can. Management is great to work with they keep up with the production and the daily needs of an assembly operator. The co-workers are easy to work with, because everyone adapts to attention to detail. The hardest part of the job is making sure to triple check your job in doing it the right way the first time. The most enjoyable about the job is the pay check.
Machinist (Former Employee) – Wentzville, MO – December 10, 2013
The most enjoyable part of this job was being able to work with titanium. in my three years here, I learned shipping and receiving and a lot about titanium. I got along with my coworkers and management did a good job. the hardest part of my job was long hours and being short staffed a lot of the time.
Day was busy and was over quickly. I learned a lot more about machines and how to keep them running. The management was great - just outlined the job and left you to do it. Co-workers were good - friendly. The hardest part of the job was making sure project was finished on time. The most enjoyable part of the job was the security.
