Good job, but it wears you down.
Fabrication Technician (Current Employee) – Newbury Park, CA – June 20, 2018
You work 3-4 days a week in 12 hour shifts. Expect to take home around $2000 a month. You will not get federal holidays off, you will instead receive triple pay for that/those days. That being said, knowing that the company regularly boasts of revenues in the muliple hundreds of millions of dollars every quarter makes the level of pay a frequent topic of discussion among employees. It is still, however, a better paying job for those with no degree. You can request to work a lot of overtime if you want. Managers are considerate, communicative, and handle all issues professionally. Opportunities for advancement are present and do include raises. They'll pay for school if it's a relevant field to the company. Biggest issue, however, is injury. This is a fast paced assembly job, injuries of the hand, wrist, and arms are not uncommon from overuse.
