All the good ones are gone
Machinist (Former Employee) – Cheshire, CT – January 13, 2017
I worked at EDAC through 3 moves, ending at the beautiful Cheshire location. Probably to balance the books, since the move to Cheshire, the benefits went down the toilet, and the pay stagnated. I had a boss who could be bought off with Italian grinders, and the corrupt HR dept couldn't mind their OWN ethics, never mind lecturing us on ours. Fortunately, most of the HR problems have been sacked, just one more to go.
If you are lucky enough to work in the Precision Components group, you had better learn Polish. If you are Polish, you can watch WiFi TV, text and talk on your phone with no problem. Americans are routinely treated as garbage. The Polish have their rules, and everyone else has to toe the line. That being said, one boss is good, the other a piece of human debris.
Go to EDAC to gain skills and move on, although there really aren't any jobs for beginners. As an aside, most of the people who have left were not slackers, but rather very skilled people who got fed up.
I had dreams of finally moving up, but realized I don't speak the right language and don't know a decent Italian grinder shop.
Parking is getting better every week
Expensive benefits, favortism, corrupt HR
