Potential to be great, but missed ...
Assembly & Bonding (Current Employee) – Hermantown, MN – July 28, 2018
Working 4-10's with Fri generally off. You work up to sick time and vacation, but if line shuts down they force you to use your acquired time, you planned for a family vacation, too bad.
Pay is low for high pressure, no failure, aerospace position, which does not provide for living standards in the area, many take a part time second job to meet bills.
Leadership is forward looking, but lacks the knowledge of the lines to anticipate issues, whereas daily trial and error is the approach and every unit is repaired and altered, sad for a million dollar item.
There is little department advancement and most find advancement by leaving. 50% are not happy and actively looking for a better pay day and leaving. When I first started there where great quality co-workers coming in, now there are so few that apply and those that come into the line are just workers.
If someone would care to understand that there is a limited pool of quality workers in this area and that with a little more pay and attention they have the potential to be a great place to work.
Good facility, location, product
Poor leadership, Hr, pay, vacation, worst of all bad hand tools
