Chem Mill (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – October 18, 2018
You'll spend the majority of your life working and they will attempt to make you feel bad for wanting to not work saturdays when you've already put in 50 hours by the end of friday. It's good if you don't have a social life and just want to make money.

Dimensional Inspector (Current Employee) – Albany, OR – June 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.
Wax molder (Current Employee) – Albany, OR – April 12, 2018
It's a good job and people who have worked there a while there's still the good old boy mentality but it's changing for the better I hope they offer 401k but no matching have profit sharing witch is good company overall is good place to work
Welder (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – January 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.
Chemical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – January 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.
Dimensional Technician (Level B) (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – January 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.
HRIS Support Technician (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – August 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.
Profit Sharing between 20-30% (after 6 mo employment)
C.I. Summer Help (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – June 28, 2017
This industry was really diverse and at times very quickly paced. One day I would be organizing years of files and then the next I find myself measuring and weighing countless wax parts for information.This company has really good management, and all the employees were most certainly inviting. I really enjoyed working for this company and i would definitely recommend.
Continuous work that keeps me busy and makes the day go by fast.
Ingot Processor (Current Employee) – Albany, OR – June 20, 2017
Even if you show up to work everyday on time the supervisors choose to not work with you to help accommodate your needs in real life. Like switching people to night shift without giving even the slightest of a heads up. Management needs a little work in that department.
Want all the effort you have but give zero in return
PROCUREMENT INTERN (Former Employee) – Albany, OR – April 27, 2017
This company cares very much about its employees. From the family day hosted in the summer so families can see where the employees work and what they do, to making sure that you have what you need, Selmet does everything they can to take care of its employees
Procurement Agent (Current Employee) – Albany, OR – April 13, 2017
I loved working at Selmet. My boss is an incredible woman who really pushes her employees to grow and become better workers as well as people in general. The hardest part about the job is adjusting to frequent changes.
