Machinist and Grinder (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – September 10, 2018
Pay close attention to changes in company policy and you will be fine. I loved working here, I got cross trained at every opportunity and went to other shops when they needed help. I got along very well with co-workers and supervisors, enjoyed my work, and appreciated the option to earn OT when there was work available. The company had potlucks, BBQs, meetings and feedback that kept the culture friendly and made you feel appreciated. Promotions are very possible when you are diligent and do quality work.
Department Supervisor (Former Employee) – Groton, CT – May 22, 2018
Little innovation at the Groton plant. Cut throat management style and no investment plans to replace the 60 year old machinery. No safety culture despite risky environment. Employees get hurt frequently
no safety protocols, really old equipment, many manual processes
Marker/Office Clerk/Production Scheduler (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR 97222 – January 23, 2018
Cross training is important Management is depending on the person that is managing Jobs are competitive and depends on seniority The hardest part of the job was lack of employees Most enjoyable part of the job is when all goes smoothly and in timely manner.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 17, 2017
I learned how to do cycle counts and correct routers if paperwork was wrong. Management wasn't overbearing. They were helpful when issues would come up. They were encouraging on a daily basis. I would say the hardest part of the job was trying to keep up with all of the other departments. The most enjoyable part of my job was the co-workers.
Overall this company is my ideal company to work for.
FPI Inspector (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – May 16, 2017
A typical day at precision consisted of training modules, inspecting aircraft castings per techcard standards, performing different methods of FPI inspection. Entering data of discontinuities, and reporting defects of different call out sizes. The workplace and culture was a great environment with skilled professionals. Management was easily approachable and highly informative. The commute from Salem to Milwaukie was a negative for me. It was a hour long commute so my job work / life balance was way off, leaving me with limited time after work for other things. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was learning the job. I'm passionate about this industry, I had the best time in NDT school and I know I can preform and enjoy most of the NDT inspection method positions.
Sr. HR Manager (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – October 26, 2015
PCC, at certain of their sites, has terrible leadership and a poor culture. I left due to poor work life balance, poor treatment of employees and leadership that makes decisions that put profits before people and customers.

PRODUCTION STEEL GRINDER (Former Employee) – Portland Oregon – February 18, 2014
I learned to grind steel and basic surface defect detection methods using florescent penetrent. What important to know about this company is that it's a manual labor shop. They don't invest anymore than they have to to get the job done, and rely on labor to carry the weight of the workload. This lean management style is common in the manufacturing industries, and an important part of the culture at Precision.
