Buyer (Former Employee) –  Morton Grove, ILDecember 6, 2018
A typical work day started with processing new suppliers into SAP/MDM and notifying North America staff upon completion. Learned how to submit contracts to legal for final approval. Worked with Engineering and varies departments on projects to meet overall company goal.


The hardest part of the job was staying current in the system with Certificate of Insurances.

Most enjoyable part of the job was monthly off-site luncheon staff meetings and onsite fully staffed cafeteria.
Pros
Fully staffed reasonable priced cafeteria.
Cons
No benefits

seal tech (Former Employee) –  Oyster Creek, TXNovember 14, 2018
I enjoyed working here, as long as you do what needs to be done they don't really bother you. Benefits were great. Pay scale wasn't that great when I worked there though.

This company was sold.
Lead receiver for main distribution warehouse (Former Employee) –  Odessa, TXApril 2, 2018
This company was a supportive branch to the oil industry by providing oil pump service and repair with a main distribution warehouse. Due to the falling oil pricing during 2015-2016 this company closed half of their assets and consolidated inventory after almost failing their API inspection which led to the eventual sale of the company, I spent two full years with this company and struggled with a management team that had a culture of separation and disengagement from their core workers.Many of the warehouse personnel were temps that had been there for quite a while without any plan or engagement from mgmt.The inventory control team was extremely substandard which made warehouse production difficult at best.I did manage to learn a little more about the actual mechanics and engineering concepts of our oil drilling industry, mostly by simply engaging the pump shop workers in simple conversation.
The parent corporation was SMITHS,based out of Great Britain. I do not know what this company is now called.
Pros
good benefits, paid time off
Cons
difficult and dangerous environment with disengaged mgmt.

Customer Service Rep II/Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKApril 17, 2018
Management has improved. There is lack of responsibility of particular departments. Overall fun atmosphere. Starting pay is typically competitive, no guarantee of a raise afterwards though. Healthcare is expensive with little coverage.

Once a good place to work, going down the tubes fast.
Precision Assembler (Former Employee) –  Morton Grove, ILAugust 15, 2018
Too many chiefs all trying to prove their worth. This display of "look how great i am" usually involves cost cutting measures like not buying necessary items employees need to perform job, lack of enough employees, and lay-offs. Projects are suggested, as a way for engineers or supervisors to gain recognition only to be shut down when it comes time for the money to be spent. alot of the managers have no idea what emplyees do on the floor.
Pros
cafeteria on premises that serves breakfast
Cons
obtuse management.

Interesting, challenging and exciting.
PA/ EXPORT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Northampton UKNovember 14, 2018
The job was challenging, exciting and fulfilling. I was left to make many of my own decisions to drive forward. It gave me the confidence to progress and apply many new skills, understand people and learn from any mistakes which generally did not happen . I progressed as a senior PA, to run my own area alongside and understand many aspects of the business. I had good guidance from a very intelligent and commercially brilliant mentor who would always look outside of the box.
Pros
Mentor and the team.
Cons
Location of office

Poor Management
Cad Operator/Designer (Former Employee) –  Deer Park, TXOctober 23, 2017
Management had very low work ethics and values that did not line up with the Business values. The management also did not value any of it's employees, and I have seen very experienced and tenure employees leave because of it. My co-workers and I got along very well, however none of them felt the management was fit to lead.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Poor Management

only if you're desperate
Programmer, CNC Set-Up, Inspection (Former Employee) –  Cerritos, CASeptember 25, 2017
This is not a place to work if you want to advance or get a raise. I worked there for 6yrs and helped implement lean manufacturing by cutting set up and lead times and only ever got raises that didn't even cover cost of living every year. So while my managers got raises and bonuses for the improvements I came up with I got nothing.
Pros
starting pay
Cons
no raises or advancement opportunities

It all depends on the Dept and Manager
Buyer (Former Employee) –  Morton Grove, ILNovember 1, 2018
It's all different depending on what department you're in.
Overall John Crane has good people, but they are pinched with skeletal teams. People are not replaced after they leave, which causes more to leave.

Great place to work but management is Garbage!
Senior Seal Tech 3 (Former Employee) –  Baton Rouge, LAApril 6, 2018
Overall not a bad place to work for as long as you have a degree in putting up with BS.

Management is the key problem at this location!

Expect to be on call one or more weeks out of the month.

Monthly closeout goals turn into rat races due to the lack of help from the inventory side which is also poorly understaffed as well.

Expect to be worked 50-70 hrs a week

There is no proper training for new people at this branch as they are thrown to the wolves!

Mistakes are made by management and the assembly crew are the ones that pay and have to stay late.

Group leader is garbage also!
