Was a good job. Had problems with some managers and employees who thought they ran the place ( and mangers had their favorites?)Overall it was good, good pay as well
Machine Operator Assistant in Plano, TX
on August 16, 2022
Loved the job and the people. The hours are the problem. Mandatory 12hr shifts can be given to you with very little notice. You are obligated to stay until your replacement arrives and if they do not show you are expected to stay to cover.
Utility operator in Algona, WA
on August 13, 2022
Management didn’t listen to employees . Overworked employees, massive mistakes and general lack of quality control. Constant issues with keeping machines running and very little training. Unable to keep temporary works for long. Old equipment.
Process Engineer in Tomahawk, WI
on August 11, 2022
Overall it is a good experience for new engineers. However, work-life balance is lacking in favor of bottom-line production. Difficult to move up if you are not willing to move. Lots of learning opportunities, and good compensation.
Machine Operator in Richland, WA
on August 9, 2022
Pay is great but don’t mess up, or it will cost you. They give you three strike and your out. So follow instructions and make sure you learn all the information they give you cause it’s a lot.
