Team Leader (Current Employee) – Oriskany, NY – June 29, 2018
A typical day would start by reviewing the previous night shifts production schedule, check the status of hot jobs, assure delivery drivers have all required orders. Check all machines, equipment, and inventory levels, plan and oversee production demands. Heat treat department and production support for CPP Syracuse a very unique workplace. Very busy and hectic job, multitasking is a must. Also very hot in the summer, and cold in the winter. Very physically demanding work. Month ends are always busy, but fun achieving and surpassing goals.
Lots of overtime opportunities, Co workers are pleasent.
Quality Final Inspector (Former Employee) – Eastlake, OH – April 27, 2018
high stress and pressure, time off is hard to get approved unless work load is low. Castings are heavy, fellow employees are united and supportive. Floor managers and leads are intolerable ( family members) and show favoritism. floor managers and lead gang up on employees.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Chittenango, NY – April 6, 2018
Hours are flexible, 8-5 or 7-4, Investment casting for many different companies. Lots of CAD usage and excel. Management is very relaxed, get the job done no questions asked. Hardest part is figuring out why the parts didn't turn out like they should. Best part is having the production line in the same building to oversee building process
I was the assistant to the HR manager. However I ran the operation at that particular site on my own. With little or no supervision.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Cudahy, CA – March 20, 2018
I indeed enjoyed my job. Most of my training was done because I’m very resourceful. My manager was busy and did not have the time to do extensive training. I had a lot of help from the managers on the plant, who taught me the ins and outs of the business. A great group of people to work with
I have the freedom to begin new projects With great success
I was hoping that the job was a temporary, but things didn't go as planned. The actual work itself is somewhat fine. Winter time work condition is good, but Summer time comes around the place is way too hot for me. Some jobs are way heavy and I just don't think it's for me as I get older.
Production Manager (Former Employee) – Chittenango, NY – January 17, 2018
the work here is very unsteady they lay off quite often. the HR department is often unavailable or grouchy when you need questions asked. there is very little done on the safety aspect of the business.
Not many positive take aways. Pay is horrible. HR department non existent. Managers are from the "good ole boys club." Typical new hires are either Croatian and or African American workers who will work any-all hours asked of them for minimal pay.
Metal Pourer (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – May 17, 2017
Company needs restructuring. Management is in dire need of change. The hours are horrible. Employees are treated poorly. There is no coordination between management from different shifts or communication among management to employees.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Port Hueneme, CA – March 10, 2017
Great companies to work for and good opportunities to grow. Has a good environment. It also has fair benefits. As long that you work hard and take pride in your work and be punctual it'll be looking good for you.
It is very friendly environment where I get to improve myself into another level.
Interpreter/Translator (Former Employee) – Walnut, CA – February 11, 2017
As an interpreter, I need to provide instant interpretation through international phone call, tours, and business meeting. Yet as a beginner of this field, I need to prepare myself before my work. This is the time I need to get more field related stuff from expertise and go over the materials with my manager. Throughout the process, I learned a lot of the materials that they will never go through it during lectures in college. Therefore, I really enjoy this job especially I get to learn something from it.
Better at time management and knowing the right technical languages
