It's ok. If you're an underachiever.
Machinist (Current Employee) –  Sterling Heights, MIJune 18, 2019
The owner is awesome. Flex scheduling. New shops, machines, and equipment. The bennies are ok. Most of the employees and supervisors suck. Entitled, lazy, truant, and not helpful. Those are the people you'll see get ahead too, along with the kiss-ups. Doesn't seem like hard work or ambition are noticed or appreciated; rather just more how well you're liked. You're more likely to get chewed out for overachieving than praised. I'm just passing through.
Cons
Favoritism runs rampant.

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sterling Heights, MIOctober 31, 2018
Have to work long hours to get over time to make enough to pay bills.

Poor management, great coworkers, great benefits. No paid vacation time, you get a check for how ever many weeks of so called vacation time you have on the anniversary of your start date.

Great company
Machinest (Former Employee) –  MichiganAugust 6, 2017
One of a kind company. It has the typical issues that you will find in any shop but they do things a little different. Flexible work schedule but held responsible for your duties. Best health insurance on the planet with very small copays. New and upgraded equipment in all departments. Employee involvement or suggestions could be valuable but taken to heart in most cases but overall one of the best shops I have ever worked at.
Pros
Flexable work schedule and great insurance
Cons
some of the managment

Good employees working underneath an integrity problem
