not a good place to work
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Hickory, NCJanuary 18, 2019
unless someone took you under their wing, you didn't have a chance, very competitive, fast paced, you never knew from one day to the next if you had a job or not...business had slowed at the time, they laid a lot of us off at one time..they were bad for that..
Pros
climate controlled
Cons
fast paced, ppl would not help, bad atmosphere, etc..

Former member (Former Employee) –  Tewksbury, MAJanuary 5, 2019
Environment emotionally draining
The production people like think they are all mechanics

Miminal team work in facilities common term you will hear from coworker not my job
Requires the leadership to make a commitment to turn things around
Which will not happen and it’s a not lead mechanic postion as normally known coworkers will not respect your position
Pros
Weekly paycheck
Cons

Pros

Factory Work
Assembler/Quality Control (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYNovember 19, 2018
Working at the Corning plant is much like any other factory. You have to keep in mind safety while enjoying putting in a good days work. As with any factory, plan on working with machines and standing all day.

Customer Service
Customer Care Representative (Former Employee) –  Hickory, NCNovember 9, 2018
They have team leaders and managers' poor communicator between management. They will micromanage every order and keystroke.
When you need assistance, management are missing in action or will not back you up. If they don't like you, you are gone. Keeps people around who suck up and yet don’t perform. Customer Service is not allowed to work from home, however if they like you, you will have a laptop. Manages through fear to lose your job. Expect two or three years on a temp agency before hired. I saw people with great years (15 +) of experience just walk out.

Co-workers are great!
Pros
Gym, great benefits, rewards
Cons
Stress level high, bullie managers, no flex time

Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Corning manassasOctober 25, 2018
The people in that place are pretty cool ! But it is very cliquey! There’s always so much work and not enough employees, they do not care they expect you to figure out a way to get it don’t and when you don’t get it done they ask questions they they already know the answer to there’s simply not enough people! Manufacturing has it the worst and they pay them the worst ! The folks in the office thank there smarter then everyone because they have degrees but they really don’t know anything about what we go through on the manufacturing side !
Pros
Hour lunch, decent pay
Cons
Long hours, unexpected weekends

Great company, culture difficult, location leaves much to be desired
Finance (Former Employee) –  Corning, NYOctober 16, 2018
Great company performing well in all areas.. The culture is antiquated and can be perceived as needlessly difficult. Engineers run everything and tend to over-engineer what should be very simple things. Location leaves much to be desired, but if you are well-regarded, they take care of their people and take development seriously.
