Packers and stamper (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – June 18, 2018
No paid time off regardless of any health issues, you can work for them for 15yrs have a medical issue and because you only get 9 days off a year to use unpaid if you miss 10 your fired regardless even with a medical note
No paid time off. Very dirty areas to work in air quality is bad
overall good place to work as long as you want to work
test/packer and molder (Former Employee) – Bristol, CT – March 31, 2018
I enjoyed being a test and packer which i excelled at but then they wanted me to become a molder and I couldnt grasp that job as well so right before the probationary period of 90 days was up they let me go. I was never late I showed up just couldnt keep up the molding pace and they wanted me to try it and it payed more.
good work place, management is competent, cig breaks as well as lunch and time flies by
little unfair to let you get into a rhythm if switching positions. strict about punctuality
Pay attention. Always check your area or what ever your operating for any damage or to make sure your area and machine are clean. Also if you have a question ask some one for help! Better to ask and get what you're doing right than second guess and get it wrong.
A typical day at QCI was getting there around 6:30 and making sure every thing was set up for the day. I would plan out my day so I knew exactly what I was going to do for the day. Working in a factory you learn to make sure things are done right the first time. Most of those that I worked with I am still very good friends with. To put it this way they were my bridesmaids.
The hardest part of my job was sometimes not having the materials to get the jobs done the needed to be for that week and ometimes that month. The most enjoyable part of my job was not only the people I got to be around but also listening to my radio while I worked. Nothing like a good rhythm to get the day rocking.
