Utility Player (Current Employee) –  Selmet incJanuary 24, 2019
My favorite thing about working at Selmet is the people I work with. When you work full time, you spend more hours with your co-workers than you do with your family and when I am at work I am with my work family at Selmet.
The management is fair, honest and respectful.
If you have a good work ethic, it will be recognized and you will advance. Selmet, sincerely has good opportunities in a growing industry. Titanium aircraft castings are in the highest demand they have ever been and Albany is in the center of the industry. You can make a career there no matter what position you start at. if you have a GED, MBA or engineering degree, the opportunities are there.
Pros
Family atmosphere
Cons
It's a manufacuring job

Good placs to work if your single or have no outside life
Part mover (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORDecember 12, 2018
Worked there for a month and a half, and unless u can get stuff done really fast it's a horrible pace. I was a parts mover and they were wanting 50lbs+ objects moved across the warehouse in less then 10 to 15 minutes after you loaded the cart full of parts. If you want something with a good home/life balance this isnt the place for you
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
7 minute breaks, no excuses excepted for being late

Terrible prison
Molder (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORDecember 5, 2018
Terrible place to work. Management and HR are both a joke and don't support the employees. They only care about themselves. Was told I could pick up my child on certain days because of my parenting plan and got the ok from both managers and supervisors. Then got written up for it and was told it wasn't management that wanted to do it it was HR. when asked HR about they stated they don't do write ups its all management. Got the run around for months. Expected to be robots and have no life outside of work. If your sick don't even think about calling in. Doctor's note don't mean a thing to them, they will still use it against you come review time.
Pros
My work crew
Cons
Management, Hr, work schedule list goes on and on

Metals Manager/Casting (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORAugust 27, 2018
This is a good company, with lots of potential. If you don't get along with employees you will not make it here. The longer you have been here the more they want.
Pros
Good company for the young employee, for retirement.

It's an okay job if you have no life
Dimensional Inspector (Current Employee) –  Albany, ORJune 3, 2018
Depending on which department(or cell) you're in, it's not too bad of a place to work. 10 hours a day, Monday-Friday and 5 hours on Saturday. Sometimes we have to work clear through the weekend, depending on what time of the month it is. If you're single and have no kids, it wouldn't be too bad. But if you do have kids, don't expect to see them very much because there is NO work/life balance. Just all work. The only reason why people would stick around is because of the profit sharing.
Pros
Profit sharing, stable work
Cons
Low pay, no home life

Hard to please
Welder (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORJanuary 23, 2018
First year is great. Than the dynamic changes.. Endless work days.. They bait you into working all weekends and days off. Tell you its ok to say no for working your days off but with surprisingly write you up for "denial" to work. Can get used to it but hard when young. Wish they could compensate for the young and ambitious.

High level Skills for Entry/Internship Position
Chemical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORJanuary 11, 2018
Safety is not part of the company's culture. Selmet has a long way to go as far as creating a safe work environment for their employees. The pay rate is typically 10-25% lower compared to other manufacturing companies. For an entry level position you are expected to already know the job.
Pros
bonus
Cons
low pay, hazardous conditions, poor leadership

Not a fan
Dimensional Technician (Level B) (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORJanuary 3, 2018
Clear lack of communication, fairly stressful, not a career for the average person. The job itself isn't bad, its the management that's a pain to work with. Expect 50+ hours every single week and 60 ish at the end of the month.
Pros
Lots of overtime
Cons
management can be tough to deal with.

Extracting the Most from Employees
HRIS Support Technician (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORAugust 25, 2017
Depending on which department you work in, there are pluses and minuses to work for Selmet. If you are working in production, they demand mandatory overtime and may place you on whatever shift they need. Non-production areas are much less stressful, but they do expect you to do the most you can with the least salary.
Pros
Profit Sharing between 20-30% (after 6 mo employment)
Cons
Busy

Overall a great place to work. Pay and benefits are good.
Internal Auditor (Current Employee) –  Albany, ORAugust 9, 2017
Interesting place to work with many positions to apply for. Management is continually improving the site and the manufacturing process.

The company expects long hours, with many working over 50 and as many as 70hr/week.
Pros
Good work atmosphere

Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  Albany, ORAugust 1, 2017
If you happen to be looking for work and don't have a lot of experience or education it's a fair job. It's labor work so it isn't fun. There are benefits offered to long term employees as well.
