a good place to work

Indeed Featured review

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.

Pros

laid back, no stress

Cons

scheduling, benefits

decent workplace

I liked it but far from my house. It was mostly simple welding and fit up. They did have some more difficult jobs with tight tolerances, but they had guys who would do those tough jobs specifically.

Don’t apply

Worst company I’ve ever worked for! Owners are rude and disrespectful, employees are constantly being fired and there were only a handful of employees in the office who had been there longer than a few months. Unrealistic expectations are set by the owners

Under paid, under appreciated and over worked

Worked there for 2 years. The place is a rotating door due to either people being unhappy and leaving, not being paid enough or being fired for just and unjust reasons. Save your time and get more money going somewhere else because all you will do here is line the owners pocket book with money.

Pros

Always busy

Cons

Bad management, bad pay, bad benefits

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.

Hello, Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re sorry your experience didn’t match your expectations. It was an uncommon instance and we are always striving to be better. Please feel free reach out to Human Resources here at AMP with any further comments, concerns, or suggestions you wish to share.

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.

Look elsewhere

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

Be careful what you wish for

What started as a nice place to work, turned very difficult and stressful (like walking on eggs shells) after maybe a few months. Others I worked with felt the same. Management does set you up to fail regardless of the dedication you may show and provide.

Pros

Wages are fair, co-workers are good to work with

Cons

Very confused management, not on the same page.

They should pay welders more.

Not a bad place to work. Only reason I left is because they would never notice a hard worker. I was paid 5+ bucks under my coworkers for the same job that I would finish faster and cleaner. They offered me a 10 cent raise and I quit a few days later.

Pros

Easy work, good for begining welders.

Cons

Low pay

Awesome people, great environment

Everything seems to run relatively smoothly, other employees are cheerful and easy to get along with, very clean and organized shop environment, big emphasis on safety, lots of OT opportunities. New changes in HR make for clearer advancement opportunities and pay raises based on performance vs. seniority. Overall a very easy going company to work for.

Pros

2 paid 15min breaks per 8 hour shift, lots of work, overtime, cheerful employees, fun environment, kaiser health coverage, company paid 'employee appreciation' lunches almost quarterly

Cons

none I can think of

Compliance Manager

I love working for owners who truly promote self growth and strong, powerful women. They promote within the company and they advocate learning different avenues of the business. I have been given great opportunities to learn multiple faucets within the company. They recognize hardwork, loyalty, and dedication and have always rewarded greatly. Sometimes it does require multiple hats, and has you on the go non-stop. But it makes your day go by faster and management does require 100% of you. It is not always the right fit for some individuals. Resumes always look good on paper, but actions speak louder than words.

Pros

Advancement, compensation, free lunches and starbucks

Cons

location and benefits

difficult work enviornment

Not an easy place to work, leadership does not provide a clear vision, constantly changing. good work hours, 6am to 3:30pm helps to beat traffic. Solid team on the manufacturing floor, hard workers.

Pros

working hours

Cons

lack of support from leadership

Great environment with clean responsiveness to employees and customers

Up to date sheetmetal house with nice facility. 90percent of employees take pride understanding owners drive to employ and keep jobs localized while other 10 percent oblivious to real job market and work conditions. Owners are open for change and input. Not sure of previous posts but owners sem to be engaged. Why shouldn't they have toys? Isn't that why you go in business for yourself. Lacks machine shop leadership and knowledge. Said management in machine shop is knowledgeless and mad at world.

Pros

cool peers and co workers

Cons

machine shop as of 9/30 lacks competent programmers and leaders.
