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.

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.

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)
