MEDICAL EQUIPMENT ASSEMBLER (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – February 27, 2018
I Liked Vention Medical. The paid wasn"t good and you did the same work as others. But overall i like the company they trusted me to work in by myself where i was all alone and not being watch over your shoulder. i can't say nothing bad except the pay.
Utility handler doesn't do what she is suppose to do, lazy at helping us. Need to know that we are human, and will make mistakes. To much paper work, utility handler used to do this and get us ready for new job. We have to stop and do everything that used to be done for us so we didn't have to stop and set up every thing our selves. They change the specs and policies constantly. We don't get info we should get from supervisor and utility clerk. To short of a lunch 20 mins. isn't enough. They won't pay for 30 mins.
Climate controlled clean room environment with some sit down jobs
Medical Device Assembler (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – September 29, 2017
I enjoyed every aspect of this job. Employees and management. Everyone was very helpful and understanding. Easy on my body. I needed mostly a sit down position. They worked hard to accommodate that for me. The only thing that was difficult for me was learning correct paperwork. However, most employees will help new hires understand paperwork.
This was a great company to work for. As with all jobs, there are always bad eggs in the bunch, and that includes within management. Not lower level, upper level. That isn't in all cases, as I stated, there are bad eggs in every company.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 30, 2017

For a new engineer there are several learning opportunities to be had a such a company, If one can keep up with the pace and the stringent government regulations and company expectations. Overall great place to work.
Learning the different medical devices used in the body.

Operator (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – August 6, 2017
Start with a group meeting and then after meeting, start production and try to finish orders on time. I learned different types of medical equipment and different catheters. The culture is very diverse and the hardest part about the job was trying to finish an order in a very little time crunch period. The most enjoyable part was the extra curricular activities that we did as a company and compete to win prizes.
Medical Assembly/Inspection (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – July 10, 2017
The work itself isnt hard but pay is very low and theres not much room to advance. Also there's no raises or bonuses so youre pretty much stuck with 10hr. Supervisors will stand and watch you to make sure you are working fast enough. Theres alot of favoritism. Attendance is very strict and they say you get paid time off but what they dont tell you is that if you quit or get fired you have to pay all of your pto back and most likely wont get a check. They do not give you uniforms until after you are hired in. You get a 20 min break for lunch. Most likely you will have to work Mon-Sat.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – July 10, 2017
Easy place to work but very detailed oriented. I worked here for a short time and was ok with this job. We worked inside cleanrooms and your entire body is covered. Assembled parts for open heart surgeries.

At first this place can be a little intimidating. You will most likely be working in a clean room environment which in itself takes a little getting used to. But if you take the time to get to know the process and are diligent with following instructions it is easy to work your way up in the company.
There will be overtime, sometimes a lot but they always try accommodate their employees to ensure nobody feels overworked. Currently Saturdays are on a rotation basis depending on shift.
Paid Vacation is the biggest plus here. After getting hired in you automatically earn 2.5 weeks of PTO and more the longer you work here.
They also have nice company parties twice a year, in the winter and summer.
Overall great place to work!
Amount of PTO, Benefits are reasonable
Only 1 20 minute (paid) break per 8 hour shft, Pay isn't the greatest
