Toxic work environment, poor training methods
Assembler Technician (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – March 6, 2019
The worse manufacturing facility I've been to. Unorganize, I dont know how they pass their ISO audits. So many safety violations in the basement and stock room. Parts and random items such as tables and chairs sitting in the middle of isles for days as forklift operators have to maneuver around them.
Manufacturing training supervisor and team members are the worst I've worked for. They belittle you and intimidate you into learning their way of operations. Their method of training is literally like boot camp training. Production assembler training consist of various testing: paper work/computer test, electrical/mechanical assembling test. No shadow training. They expect you to pass with three attempts or you're out the door.
Upon hiring, they never mentioned that this position was a tempt to hire position. I interviewed for a specific position but was offered a lower position. On top of that, they threw in a bunch of lies with salary (salary vs hourly pay is different) benefits to make the job more appealing. Then when I was hired on, I found out that non of the benefits mentioned during the interview applied to me as an hourly employee. The turnover rate is very high at this place for a reason, be warned. I can only speak on behalf of the production area, office area may be a different atmosphere.
The only pro is the pay, but is it worth it? In a toxic work environment? I don't think so.
Competitive pay thanks to the Union
