If you can survive the politics, the job is great.
Machine Builder (Former Employee) – Spring Lake, MI – January 23, 2015
Campbell Grinders is a company that builds CNC Grinders.
They have been around since the 70's they recently have seen big changes, due to new contracts and demand. They were a tiny organization only a year before I made it there. Because of demand they were expanding they had turned to hiring (temps), in Engineering as well as out on the floor. I was a temp on the floor. I had never been a temp before, I of coarse went in with a belief that show up everyday with a good attitude ready to work and learn and someday I could be a part of this company(not the case).
When I was working here it was a storm of political mess. I have never in my life witnessed so many grown men acting like prepubescent teens incapable of completing even the simplest task with any efficiency. There were good men there, but the ones that controlled the future of the company were pathetic and incompetent. I had not known such ignorance in all my days.
I would have very much enjoyed progressing in a company that was doing the things this one was "supposed" to be doing. Sadly this company is in need of serious new order if they are going to thrive.
The work is great, if you can get that far.
