This company is nothing but dead end positions. Your job is always in question and there is very little to learn or grow and no room to advance unless you know someone going in.... "Team leaders" are a joke, departments are run by the employee who make lousy pay by the way. Management does nothing to solve issues, they are usually to busy socializing and rarely can even be found.... It's amazing this company has been in business as long as it has having no foresight or ability to plan or schedule anything... If ya wanna know if you are working Saturday they will let ya know maybe Friday late afternoon. Save your time, don't work here!!!!!
It's a job
Expensive insurance, no manager support, stressful, unknown hours, poor training.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Perry, OH – April 21, 2017
A typical day at work was pretty laid back and calm, even when a lot of work needed to be done. Rather than people getting anxious and rushing to get product out, everyone would help each other out to get things out in an efficient manner.
This job was my entry into the electronics field and it helped me learn a lot about everything from wire harnesses to SMT and even leadership rolls.
Management was always helpful and tried their best to help their employees grow and advance their career.
The overall workplace culture was very friendly and most of the coworkers were extremely helpful.
The hardest part of the job was simply learning the skills that I needed after first beginning the job. After some time and a lot of practice it became much easier.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I was continuously learning new skills with the help of coworkers and management.
Lead 5S, Kaizen and Value Stream Mapping (Former Employee) – Smithfield, NC – March 2, 2017
This British based company had some great programs and processes, supplying automotive and government customers with vehicle wire harnesses. The workforce was great and everyone new everyone for the most part except for temps who were brought in for bigger orders. Management was both kind and a joy to work with but the company opted to close rather than invest in expansion at the Smithfield facility.
Worker (Former Employee) – Perry, OH – October 24, 2016
It will be a blight on your resume. Management is more concerned with assigning blame rather than building and shipping a quality product on time. There have been 2 layoffs in less than 6 months. I survived the first, didn't the second. They said it was "the perfect storm of lost sales" that caused both layoffs. So instead of laying off incompetent management and/or sales people, they laid off everyone else.
No training, bad & expensive healthcare, management makes promises and never delivered.
Not a good move for those looking to work for a real company. Horrible managers and company culture. The business is too small and no investment in the future. I'm surprise people stay...it feels like they are just going to the motions until they get fired.
The shop is impeccably clean and well maintained, but with the military being a major client, there are many hoops to jump through for the job, with high quality standards with low pay (around $9.50/hr).
This company would do much better with proper management
CleanRoom Technician (Current Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – June 23, 2015
Typical day at work included operating machinery to process resistor wafers for shipment to customers. I learned to work well with others and process these orders before the deadline and signed up to work overtime when asked.

Each day I transfer stock from one area to another, generate documents confirming the transferred stock, file the documents, and generate certificates of conformance for when it continues on to ship. I learned how to use EFACS, which is what is used for inventory and work-order tracking. The program is redundant; the individual applications do not communicate with each other, and thus you must repeat actions in various locations. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the amount of stock coming through the area at the end of the fiscal month, and ensuring that all the documentation and stock transfers are keeping in time with the product movement. The most enjoyable part of the job is being confident in what I learned, and being a puzzle piece in the system of getting product to the clients.
