Assembly contractor at Medtronic (Former Employee) – Brooklyn Center, MN – March 16, 2017
I was a contract assembler at Medtronic and was hired directly within 6 months. I applied and was placed within two weeks and they were very good at explaining the best practices to get hired on permanently.
Medical assembler (Current Employee) – Brooklyn Center, MN – September 16, 2016
This is my worst job for my entire life. Bad management team, team lead and cell lead. Working environments are bad. All process works requested take long period times to prove and solve. Some tools and equipment are used daily.
A good place for people who plan to advance in manufacturing field
MEDICAL ASSEMBLER (Current Employee) – Brooklyn Center, MN – September 10, 2016
i worked second shift from 2.15 pm to 10.15 pm with a 40 minutes break during the shift and two flex breaks of seven minutes each.The management is pretty good .i learnt that team work is key in a work place,the most exciting thing about the job is realizing that you make sensitive components for medical devices that go in to human body to improve lives of patients.
Productive and organized day while preparing food.
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – April 22, 2016
A typical day at work is getting breakfast, snack, and lunch ready for the kids for the day. After that you'll gather all your data and numbers in the computer. You'll do your day end and close out. Being a coordinator has a lot of tasks to follow but its not hard for me. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the smiles on the kids faces when their happy with the food.
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Minnetonka, MN – March 2, 2016
A normal day is pretty busy. Mornings are busy the most usually but it depends on Returns and Shipouts. Only a handful of my Coworkers are Nice the rest are mean and Aggressive people. Hardest part was having to work around those mean people. Most Enjoyable was probably the pay and hours. Full time 8+ hours a day. To be honest the work is alright if ur able to stand for more than 6 or 7 hours but if u don't have People who are Mean than the work would be better. The management is Good sometimes but they won't report anything if its serious. Example i have a few coworkers who take illegal drugs on the work area and someone tells management about it they won't take care of it till like 5 months later... Weird right? But the people who are in management are Cool people but they just have to much on their plate to take cause of a Serious problem.
Medical assembly (Current Employee) – Brooklyn Center Minnesota – August 11, 2015
Over the last few years I have signed up and work for a couple of different agencies, but this agency by far has been the best! I called in response to an ad I seen for medical assembly the representative that I spoke with gave me clear detailed information about the position as well as with the company's expectations were. during the interview and testing process the staff was very professional and welcoming. I was able to start work with in the first week. My first day of orientation with staff went great I appreciate how the trainer gave details on what I could expect as well as what the company expects from me. I'm looking forward to having a good long relationship with Indrotec and would definitely recommend.
clear expectations, decent starting wage (for no experience), benefits after so many hours worked
Great working environment, great schedule, and great co workers!
Medical Assembly (Current Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – July 16, 2015
I like the fact that its the medical field and I love to help people. I enjoy that me and my co workers work organized and sufficiently. The hardest part at my job is keeping up with the paper work because it is reviewed by the FDA and we have to be specific and correct on every angle. The part I love at my job is finishing correctly and in a timely schedule. Also the management is great!

Nutrition Assistant (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – April 28, 2014
I was hired by Indrotec at the beginning of April. When I was first hired I was informed that I would be a floater around different schools in the Saint Paul school district and that I would need to call in everyday at 8:00am to get my assignment for that day. I was NOT happy about this because I do not own a car and rely on either buses or rides from people, so being a floater was extremely inconvenient for me. Thankfully, after only a few days, I was given a core assignment, which means that I was placed at one school where I would work everyday. This is when the real problems started. The school I was placed at was the American Indian Magnet School, and my supervisor here was lazy and unapproachable. She spent the majority of her time sitting at her computer, and I got the distinct impression that she didn't like me. Whenever I would ask her questions about various tasks I was told to do, she always looked annoyed at the prospect of having to answer them. Since I was a temp worker I was always given the crappiest jobs that no one else wanted to do and would often be stuck doing the same types of jobs each week despite the fact that all my other co workers got to be rotated around to different jobs. This seemed unfair to me and made me feel unequal to everyone else, like I wasn't part of the team. All in all my experience here was just not good. I wasn't surprised when Indrotec called me up one day and informed me that my supervisor at the school had terminated my contract. My supervisor never said anything to me mind you, no feedback, no review, she never sat down with memore... to try to see if things could be resolved some other way before she resorted to getting me canned. After Indrotec told me that I was now jobless they said they would check and see if I was still qualified to work as a floater. A little while later they called back again to say that I could still work as a floater, but that I would need to call back at the customary 8:00am to see if there were any assignments available. By this time I had had enough. No job is worth all of this.less
steady schedule at one location IF you get a core assignment, free lunches
No control over where you go or where you're placed or over what position you get, no steady schedule if you're a floater, managers at the schools treating temp workers like slaves
New Employee (Former Employee) – Twin Cities, Minnesota – October 21, 2013
It is now the 3rd day of employment. I was just informed that new employees (must start as a floater) and as such, a "floater" has only a 5 minute window of time (8:15-8:20 am) to call in for work. IF nothing is available at that time, one must wait and remain available until 10 am, IF... a position becomes available.
First, I was told that "phone lines were staffed at 6 am and to call in at that time, on first morning when I called at 6 am, I was told that I could not call in until 7:30, and now this morning...even though the school I worked at last requested me to return this morning at 8 am, they can't verify that request, and therefore must continue to wait until...a request comes in until 10 am.
I believe this company should have been up front about such policies at time of application. Had I known this before, I would NOT have turned down two other FT employment positions in order to work for this company. Seriously...who in there right mind is going to accept employment such as this??? Everyday is a MAYBE and a lot of waiting around to see IF they have open positions for the day. IF one does open you are expected to accept it, no matter what time or location in the St. Paul area.
So....what do I tell my landlord when rent is due? "Well, I thought I had a job, got up and got ready and waited around for hours, but...oops...there was no jobs available to work....but I tried!"
Oh, by the way, the employment paperwork, does NOT inform you of this company's policies that I've listed above. Oh....and I am expected to comply with this for at least 90 daysmore... before I can be hired. I just want to warn others so they don't go thru the same experience that I have had with "this new job".
It's now after 10 am, there is no work available, and I've been up and ready to work since 5 am. :-(less

You will never know when or where or IF you'll work everyday.
