Material Handler III (Former Employee) –  Oakwood, GANovember 19, 2018
Metal work is not for everyone.

It is very hot in the summer.

It is very dangerous moving material that heavy in the air with cranes mostly. Theses risks can be minimized with proper training and extreme awareness of capabilities and surroundings.

It stunk

I hated every waking moment of working at this God awful wretched place. Everybody smelled like tacos. I had to plug my nose with whatever was available which usually ended up being oily shop rags.

Terrible company to work for
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 8, 2018
This company was so disorganized that it was a nightmare to work for them. End of month closing in accounting meant working 18 hour days for 2-3 days on end, every single month. Management was clueless as to anyone's job duties or how they were done.

Hectic and challenging place to work.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Greensboro, NCJune 6, 2018
Typically assigned to one of four or five machines. Varies by day. Work orders can be organized and well timed or you could get 14 orders due by the end of the day all at one time.
Supervisors are knowledgeable and professional, the office staff seems disconnected with the reality of a manufacturing environment.
Pros
Quarterly safety bonuses
Cons
Promised pay increase doesn't happen

Unless you're a white male, don't expect to go anywhere in this company. Poorly managed, chaos all the time. No one is happy where they are with the company
