Administrative (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSApril 17, 2019
This is a small company that tries to act big. Their supervisors are not good with people. Then some members of their management team can be just as bad. There is absolutely no opportunity for advancement in this company and the pay is extremely low. However, the health benefits are not too bad.
Pros
Some of your coworkers are great people to work with
Cons
Most people in supervision are not good with people.

Rrelaxed
Planner (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSMarch 23, 2019
The company is relaxed but enforced rules and regulation. Management is easy to talk to. It is fast paced work but not to the point of not being able to keep up.
Pros
Each department rewarded when their quota is reached.
Cons
The Panning team works in the middle of the receiving area

Fast paced and cold
Receiving Associate (Former Employee) –  Everett, WAFebruary 16, 2019
Cold environment and fast paced. Manager was not always available or willing to answer questions. I would have switched positions if i could. Meetings with HR were unnecessary and a waste of time.

Unethical behavior/actions run rampant
Laborer (Current Employee) –  Grove, OKAugust 16, 2018
Facilities are unable to meet governing requirements more often than not.
Employees are encouraged by management to lie/cheat/falsify to keep production going.
Extremely hot/cold working conditions in summer/winter.
High turnover rate
Lots of hours available if that is your thing, 7 day workweeks very common.

Good place to work for a first job or a second income. Not a lot of room to advance in the company. Not very good yearly reviews.
Shot peen operator (Current Employee) –  Everett, WAMay 31, 2017
Been here almost two years. Most of the people are great but management has some issues. As well as a failure to give yearly reviews after they were promised to us. Decent job. Pays ok. Not a career company unless you already have exquisite aerospace finishing knowledge
