Inspector (Former Employee) – Chatsworth, CA – November 9, 2018
Inspection was always beaten up to hurry with parts and first articles. We were never allowed to do our job properly. the management staff always changed, came and went all the time. We never had a chance to move up or even considered - bad pay
CEO and management is hurting the business bad, HR does not help the employee.

Great place to work. I started as an entry level employee and have been given opportunities to advance my career. My manager has mentored me into a skilled worker. I have read some of the reviews about management and am surprised. The HR Dir has been a great resource for me. The management team listens to the needs of the shop floor and sometimes goes the extra mile and alters their decisions to meet our requests. The shop floor is my family and I am grateful our GM was once a machinist and understand the shop floor and how to treat others.
the line manager and co workers are good. Upper management and HR department caustic

i enjoy working on the floor. there is constant belittling, back stabbing and a culture of protecting upper management and the HR department. unless you enjoy bowing down and being subservient to management go ahead and work here.

Great company to work for! Lots of benefits medical, dental, vision, 401k ect.. I have had great managers through the years I have worked here. Lots of changes but change is good. The HR dept takes time to listen to the employee and help when possible. There is room for you to grow in this company. The employees and staff is a good vibe to be around, some managers can be a bit more strict.

My manager was a great mentor, All my peers were great to work with. Not a bad place to work,They have given me many opportunities for advancement, as well as paid for me to earn my degree. Good people, good benefits. Awesome boss, great management and HR Team!
Managment earns well while the workers earn little.

The good things here are that you will get paid weekly, the benefits are pretty good (long and short term disability, medical, dental, vision and 401k) apprentice program. However the apprentice program offered only goes to family members of office and management personell even when they do the annual application the only position goes to a relative. The shop environment leaves room for improvement the foremen in both departments talk to their employees like children and there is an obvious clique that gets preferential treatment. But if you need a job and can ignore the shop politics the position will suffice.

great staff but upper management doesn't really care about the workers. The HR department is very tough to deal with.
there is a clique that you must be in, if your not..don't expect to rise in the company. there are many things that are wrong. i love this company but i wish the president would wake up and protect us from the one department that is supposed too!
