Good job, but a bit too ad-hoc
Electronics Technician (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – November 9, 2017
I want to start by saying that Sensitron is a good company, I didn't have a problem with anyone. I worked on the maintenance team, mostly repairing equipment. I love working on and fixing electronics so it seemed like a good fit for me. But a lot of the equipment was old and temperamental so there was always something important that needed my attention.
It was frustrating because I rarely got the opportunity to sit-down and work on something without distractions or something else that needed my attention. Also there wasn't a real workshop to work on somethings that need the proper tools and space, I often had to improvise with little space to work, and too often wasted time looking for a tool that was somewhere in the building.
There was a lot of micromanaging too, which I really don't like personally, but it's understandable in this environment. Every machine is essential for production, and when one goes down, its important it gets back up ASAP.
I complain about micromanaging, but in my experience, I'd much rather have a manager that gets his/her hands dirty, is knowledgeable and involved with the work instead of someone who's just about numbers and the bottom line.
If you like face-paced and unpredictable, this job may be great for you, I just prefer taking my time, having my own space, and not being bothered as much.
Great benefits, good people, good management
