Fun and productive, great people.
Operator (Former Employee) – Richmond, IL – February 13, 2017
I really liked this job. The people were fantastic, always interested in discussion. The management were all incredibly helpful, and understanding when it came to illnesses or other unfortunate circumstances.
I worked in their Hybrid, AB Prep, and AB Finals lines. Hybrid is widely considered to be their hardest line, as the amount of hand-intensive labor is higher here than anywhere else. AB Prep is another one of their hard lines to run, as everything has incredibly short cycle times and almost no room for error. AB Finals is an incredibly easy line, as almost everything is automated.
I really had no complaints about Watlow, except for their long waits for advancement or "conversion" from being a temporary contractor to being a full-time employee. The expected wait time was between 6-12 months.
TL;DR: Pretty solid company to work for all around.
Lots of work being put in for the employees
Healthcare is tricky to navigate with them.
