Fast Paced, intestinal fortitude needed
Assembler (Former Employee) – Wichita, KS – August 7, 2018
Average day was fast paced and had to keep pace with line. I learned that if you are too good at your job you don't have a chance at promotions, because they depend on you to do your job and help other places so line can keep pace. Management was poor, and the open door policy wasn't open door, it never happened to me but have seen people get black listed then terminated. For the most part everyone tried to get along, but tension was always high. The hardest part of the job was keeping pace and build units when parts are missing (i.e.) engines, radiators and such, and your told to do what you can of your job, then come in on Saturday to do rework and put the parts in that was missing, which meant disassemble parts, install yours, then reassemble. What I enjoyed was that I was extremely good at my job and others looked up to me and knew they could rely on me if they needed help.
numbers over quality, no such thing as fast quality
