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!

Crane was a pretty good place to work. My manager was fair, somewhat demanding, but fair. Work was varied form day to day because of the nature of what we did.

Everything was good until they move operational management off site.
Pros
Variety of tasks
Cons

Great Place
Manufacturing Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Grafton, WIJanuary 9, 2018
I great place to work in a small environment. People were very friendly. A little out of line at times with work management. Shop employees are all very knowledgeable and can disagree with office employees at times.

ok
Twister Operator (Former Employee) –  Big Spring, TXMay 23, 2017
Duties, Accomplishments and Related Skills:
I started of as a sander sanding all fiber rods so that the infant piece could be twisted on. I then moved up to twisting the infant onto the rods then having them sent through the ovens to have the infant secured on to the rod. After that moved up to pulling which consists of having the whole rod with infant pulled properly into place which completes the process of the assembly line. I had to work with one or more people to complete each task at hand. Also I had to use a remote control forklift.
