Unless you need a job, stay clear of here.
Machine Operator A (Current Employee), Wellington, OHJune 13, 2013
Pros: it is a paycheck.
Cons: i don't know where to begin...
This place has to be one of the worse managed places I have ever worked for. You won't go far here. They constantly are bullying people to work more and longer hours running unmaintained machines asking for unobtainable number for production. No support when you need it to do your job, and getting hammered to make numbers. If you are not liked or kiss – more... butt you get singled out and picked on. The rules get bent for some and not others. If you work there as a temp... you might as well get used to it. There is temps there for well over a year. Some over 2 years now. When you finally get hired in you get a 10 cent raise and a 90 probation period, after 2 years.... really? Shaddy people running things here. There are a few good people working there, not enough of them. Oh and the hours...... if you like working 6 sometimes 7 days a week and working at least 10 to 12 hours a day then this is the place for you. Unless you really need a paycheck I would steer clear of here. – less

Clean facility. Big emphasis on cleanliness.
Production Machinist (Former Employee), Wellington, OHSeptember 20, 2012
Pros: paid half hour lunch.
Cons: cutting oil mist would get in clothing, few breaks having to make production numbers.
It was a nice place to work. I ran a production cell making fuel injection rods. Hardest part of the job was getting there. I got up at 4:25 am, being that I started at 6am. The number one thing was listening to the machines, as the pitch of the sound would change as a cutting tool would need to be replaced. I would work 10 hour shifts with a paid half – more... hour lunch. – less

Good place to work. Great people.
Cell Supervisor/Setup (Current Employee), Wellington, OHJuly 30, 2012
Pros: excellent benefits (healthcare, paid holidays, 401k)
Cons: advancement oppurtunities
10 hr days. Been employed there for over 2 years now. Over the past 2+ years I've learned a great deal about automatics such as Index 25's and Tornos BS20's. Couldn't ask to work for better people, from upper management to co-workers. Hardest part of my job is trying to keep cool in the summer. The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work – more... alongside the people i do. – less

Position - Euroturn Machine Operator (Former Employee), Wellington, OHMay 9, 2012
Pros: paid lunch breaks
Cons: getting very oily
A typical day at work is starting your machine up, reviewing your tool log, changing tools, gauging parts to make sure they are in print, stacking parts, loading bars in machine, writing an hourly log, cleaning machine and mopping oil.

I learned how to adjust/change different tools in the machine, how to read blue prints, how to produce a lot of parts – more... that are in print by checking often and properly, organizing your work space to make sure everything is in a specific spot, how to use a micrometer and about reading measurements in microns.

Management was great, still working on things to improve but the place is definitely heading in the right direction. The leaders were fun and down to earth people and knew how to keep things running very well.

The co-works at Whirlaway are very competitive and friendly. They try every day to produce more parts and reduce the amount of scrap while reminding themselves about safety.

The hardest part of the of the job was dealing with machine problems. Some of the machines needed work done to them to correct re-existing problems and instead of fixing the problems they bandaged it up to keep things moving.

The most enjoyable part was just being there in general. It was very positive and I enjoyed all the people that worked there. It was like having a second family. – less
