My all time favorite job - I loved working at Ametek Chandler Engineering!
Inside Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Broken Arrow, OK – September 1, 2018
I loved the inside sales position held at Ametek Chandler Engineering. I enjoyed every aspect of the job including dealing with internal and external customers on domestic and international levels, supporting all team members from upper to lower levels. It was a pleasure to be a part of this great team, while gaining more knowledge about the oil and gas industry. My various responsibilities were very enjoyable. I would consider working for this company again if afforded the opportunity.
Great location, good pay and benefits
I wish I had not lost this job - I hoped I could retire here.

Got to be a kiss a%# didn't respect your decisions to make for the environment better and safe. respect your opinion on anything you have to know someone there to get ahead they will fire you as fast as they can if they don't like you they will push for work work work work work and it's difficult if you have a family To raise to much horse play.
Engineering Technician (Former Employee) – Binghamton, NY – August 24, 2018
This place has a bad management for the actual workers. If you are not in the 'front office' they treat you like a second class person. I liked the work I did but was so underpaid that i found my self 'holding back'.
LEAD OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Robesonia, PA – September 12, 2018
typical hurry up but don't get hurt production work. mandated overtime sometimes months on end so if you have children and a significant other, they have to take a backseat to Ametek. However, the pay and benefits are good.
Sr. Applications Engineer / Presently Employed (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA 92121 – March 7, 2018
Employees are not seen as an asset - staffing levels are far below what is required for the expected results. The blame for not meeting goals is placed on the employees. No investment in innovation - The basic plan is to buy up competitors to remove the need to address the market needs for innovative , quality and cost effective products.
Advice to Management
Goals should be achievable. Start adding staff to improve product quality. Stop chasing revenue. If you produce a good product that the market needs and support these properly - the revenue will follow.
Northeast Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) – New Milford, CT – December 7, 2018
A typical day at work would be prospecting, following up on leads and update progress in Salesforce, quoting and forecasting. I learned new products and markets. Ametek has a fairly top heavy management and is too light in engineering. The hardest and most frustrating part of the job is expediting customer samples through the engineering department. I think, like most salespeople, the favorite part of my job is working with the customers to turn a new opportunity to a win (i.e. orders).
It was great to learn a lot about electronics manufacturing and surge protectors. My coworkers were all nice people and the culture was positive there. A lot of times however, I would ask for things to do and they would not get around to giving me projects so I spent more time surfing the internet then I would have liked. I kind of had to make things happen for myself at times. Good learning experience overall though.
A typical day at work could include many different things just depending on what was the most urgent. I learned many things about motors on the job because they don't teach that in school anymore. Learned how to deal with manufacturing sites, and customers. I really enjoyed my work there it was just that they had a down sizing before the end of the year.
EM Tech (Former Employee) – Peabody, Ma – January 9, 2019
If you like non stop misery this is the place for you. Toxic environment with very poor management and supervision. I had never quit a job in my life but felt it necessary to get out from under this awful dismal company.
Buyer (Former Employee) – Baldwin Park, CA – December 10, 2018
I was a stand alone buyer and applied all my expertise as well as while working there learned a lot from my Manager and the Manufacturing and Engineering teams. I truly loved working there! I had to leave the company due to relocation. Aerospace industry is one of the most fascinating fields I have worked at.
Motor Assembler (Current Employee) – Harleysville, PA – January 2, 2019
Safe place environment to work. Plenty of parking spaces. Rotates to different departments so you learn different aspects of production. Most of the workers have been working there most of there lives. Company planning to move to Mexico is so wrong.
Marketing Assistant (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – November 18, 2018
AMETEK was a great company to contact with. I ultimately wanted to to be a full-time regular employee but they only wanted contract work. I briefly considered returning to AMETEk but chose a different path.
