It is a place to start a manufacturing career, not a place to stay.
CNC Machinist Class B (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – May 9, 2018
One of the first shops for me, when trying to build a machining skill set. I learned a lot, while I was there. But, I grew tired of babysitting those who were less motivated and fixing others' mistakes. I stayed longer than a lot of people, but when I began to see those with less skill, knowledge, and motivation leave and find bigger paychecks, that was enough for me. I liked the work, and even several of the people, but I couldn't abide the way it was managed and the lack of effort to invest in the equipment, facilities, and workforce.
It is a good place to learn.
Pay is very low, poor benefits, inadequate opportunities for advancement
