They will sell you a dream. Make you seem like you are valued but your not. Your just a body. Work 5to 6 10 hour days. But they won't tell you they at interview. They tell you 4 -10 hours days occasionally 5- ten hour days.
Pros
None
Cons
Your just a body

Great for those who are starting out as an NDT to get some hours. But QC has been understaffed for months, so be ready for a very intense workload. There are those on the team who will not carry their own weight, work incredibly slow, or just make so many mistakes for others to deal with because they know there won't be any repercussions from it. Company does not plan ahead for deadlines, so rush jobs are a daily thing. Their COVID-19 response was horrible, and 7 months in are just starting to implement mask policies and put hand sanitizer out. It took them 3 months to put door stops on the bathroom doors so you could open it with your foot, and that only happened because the CEO was coming. Pay is not comparable for most NDT jobs, but they do hire with no experience. Keep in mind that your teammates may also have no experience and can and will choose to work slowly so you do most of the work. Basically no room for advancement, but as QC you do get raises for each cert you get to level 2. 60 hours a week minimum, constantly asked to stay over, so count on that being higher. No time with family, to get things done, or generally have a life outside of work. If you are experienced in NDT or are just starting out, use this place only as a last resort.
Pros
Fun team
Cons
No breaks except lunch, long hours, no work-life balance

Would not recommend to anyone looking to have a career, Definitely not the place for that, it’s basically a sweat shop for beginners looking to get experienced, other than that it’s not a great company
Cons
Breaks could be improved, management is disrespectful and lazy(supervisors and hr is no better)

If you are a welder that is new this place is good for you. Just make sure you apply to be a welde in Stx department. I am in stp. Stx pays better and people actually like the leads and boss’s there.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Lack of pay

I loved that it’s a fast pace job that always has overtime. I didn’t like the culture as they played favoritism to other workers then others. I loved the hours

Within the last year Sabre has taken absorbed FWT to the fullest extent, erasing all of it's old existence. They started by firing managers, then the vice president and the president. The hours have increased to meet the work demand putting Saturday on the schedule permanently.

Every position is underpaid, raises are the bare minimum 3% a year and supervisors do not receive any incentive for working 65 hours a week. Bonuses are reserved for upper level management.


The Kennedale plant is the only plant to meet its on time goal for the entire year and has been overloaded with work from the other failing plants.

I feel that there is a lot of favoritism with up management and there is no room for advancement. I feel like if upper management don’t like you then they find ways to get rid of you

The job you do is worth more than you're paid... ALWAYS NO EXCEPTIONS unless you're an executive. In 6 years my pay has only increased $2.10 despite good employee reviews.

the job is good for young adults, because they can be trained a new method in welding. Not to good of a change for an old school welder. When working night shift,the lead is not very helpful. When you don't have the proper tools. It takes an act of congress to get a new tool that they supply. Qc on night can have an attiude
Pros
45 minute lunch break, learning experience for young adults
Cons
management, communication, and timeframe, and no in between breaks

Good company to work for overall. Weekly pay 14/hr with 10 hour shift. The people I worked with was fun, but some supervisor's was not my favorite. The president is the coolest!!!

Doesn’t let you use skills you already have such as advancing to a better position when you are perfectly qualified too. The hours are long for little pay doesn’t really test your skills

I spent 2.5yrs of my life trying to move up in this company. And they decided to end it because of an extra 10mins on my lunch break. This place does not appreciate anybody or anything you do for them.
Pros
They will hire anybody
Cons
They do not take care of you

Poor management. Safety director is out of control. Pure power trip. Long hours expected of their employers. Below average pay. Lots of clique participation in management and a lot of favoritism. Small increments for raises. No follow thru on their promises. You get hurt and youre on your own.
