The atmosphere is good, it is a no pressure relaxed place. The scheduling and management are terrible. I learned alot of lathe programming skills there, and everyone there is really cool.

Machinist in Livermore, CA
Worst company that I worked for
Was only there for a short time but there is so many things wrong with this machine shop. No machine shop is perfect but I have never felt the need to complain about them. Parts are constantly being ran out of tolerance with the mentality of just let it go. New parts don't always get a full inspection before going into production mode. Owner pretty much decided to just let go of its new employees and supervisor without warning. I would have respected the owners if they would give a two weeks notice before laying off employees due to the fact that it's not like the company was slow or out of work. Owners act very friendly though. Employees are very friendly but as far as structure and quality assurance in the company, its the worst I've ever seen. If a company is going to ask during orientation that it would appreciate employees to put in a two week notice if the job doesn't work out the company should do the same, its just good ethics.
Clean, organized, and growth oriented environment!
The last two years AMP has gone through an internal culture and process change in efforts to provide growth for staff, communicate goals, and to enable the company to scale. A new vision, mission, and related core values have been unveiled company-wide and are preached consistently every day within all processes operationally.
It's clear AMP is investing in employees, machinery, and growth overall. Management is fair and communicates expectations frequently. The office and production facility are kept very clean and the work environment, while very fast-paced, is productive and motivating to be in. This is not your normal job shop. The level of formality, cleanliness, and growth is impressive.
Extremely dysfunctional company/ownership. If you’re looking for no work life balance, stressful life, and to constantly be talked down upon in emails addressed to the whole team from ownership then this is the job for you. But wait! You’d be fortunate if you make it past your 90 days as they oddly take pride in turn over and believe there is a such thing as perfect. Learn how to walk on eggshells with no clear direction
