If you dont conform to their toxic culture you are out. Raises haven't been given in 5 years yet management bonuses still get paid out. Longevity meant nothing.

Bremen Castings brings you on with high hopes. The first day of orientation should be a warning though. They spring non-compete agreement on you your first day, after you already left your old job and have no choice but to sign it. Then, you are loaded upon, and loaded upon some more, until you are near emotional collapse. The sadistic CEO believes dumping more and more on already overloaded employees is the way to get the best out of them. Employee turnover at Bremen Castings is exceptionally high, and for good reason. They have large signs along the highway advertising they are constantly hiring. Please ignore those if you have any sense of self worth,
Pros
fair salary, some good fellow employees
Cons
Bullying management, unsafe work conditions, terrible work culture

I worked in the melt department we got 2 breaks, regardless. At times in the summer working in that department you would almost pass out from the heat, management didnt offer any extra breaks just popsicles.

When I come to work I'm always happy. I leave work feeling the same way. Everyone is concerned about other people's safety. The company takes safety seriously.

I previously worked in a job where I was part of the work "family." However, I never thought that I would find that again when I left that company. I did. It is so nice being part of a place that not only values its employees but is truly concerned about their well-being and safety.
Pros
Great family culture and benefits
Cons
Can't think of anything!

The lies start at the interview when they promise you a raise after 90 days. The piece rates are a fantasy, We were told a lot to try to get around 80% because 80 % is really closer to 100% of whats possible, then when your Raise/Review comes around you will be denied because you're only getting 80%, Unless you're related to or a buddy of someone in management. You can expect a shift wide meeting about every 2 or 3 weeks to have your employment threatened. Definitely one of the worst places I have worked. Management by intimidation.
Pros
Cool vending machines
Cons
Too many to list here

Machine shop is a complete bust due to a lack of competent managers. Sacrifice quality for production numbers. No employee training. Don't take care of their equipment. Degrade employees.

I enjoyed the work, some what unorganized and harsh chemicals being inhaled. It was fast paced and worked 60 hours a week. They needed better training. Instead of just throwing someone on a machine and presume they know exactly how to operate everything, they should go over the machine thoroughly.

Complete jokers of a company. They'll lie to you to get you to agree to what they want, and they'll continue to do so all the while treating you like garbage until you finally quit.

This is definitely a job for a single person. Work 56-58 hours every week. They pay good. They say they will work with you on taking saturdays off but if you bring it up your shot down. I love how management says we are working saturday and come saturday they are no where around.

My typical day started pretty early but the 8 hours went by quickly. I was able to get my hands on a lot of different applications and was given a lot of freedom in what I was able to do
