a typical day at work is, doing your job until something breaks down. It was almost everyday that some machine broke down and would take hours to fix.

Very fast paced and doesn't pay enough for work
Production Technician I for Cast Film (Current Employee) –  Marion, NCOctober 9, 2018
This job has good benefits and 401k but thought are the only good things about working for this company. Most employees' don't have enough training or was not trained properly. They claim safe is number one priority but they plant in Marion , NC can't even make it one month without having someone get hurt. Baxter pushes production with no thought of employee safe in mind.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
hours, pay, poor leadership, not safe

Quality Driven Manufacturing
Lead Trainer/ Asst. Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Medina, NYOctober 4, 2018
A typical day at Baxter includes reviewing the metrics from the previous day, discussing what happened, and how to improve today

Continuously learning new methods of problem solving, technical knowledge of the device, etc

The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of knowing that you are servicing a life saving device and successfully meeting quality, safety, and production goals

Machine Operator V (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, MSOctober 4, 2018
While an amazing Corporation as a whole, the Cleveland plant struggles from a lack of leadership. The plant also fails to provide adequate sick leave and suffers from an unfair attendance policy that is designed for an individual to point out as quickly as possible.

Great place to work but terrible management

Great benefits but terrible people in management. I enjoyed working here but between my boss lacking common sense & the drama making you feel like you're in high school again was hard to tolerate.
