Temporary 5S/LC/VSM Engineer (Current Employee) – Duncansville, PA – May 10, 2017
A typical day at work starts the first hour by checking the test logs of the day before, getting FPY log data, filling out the Daily Management boards and attending the meetings. After that it would be on towards working on projects, attending to critical matters around the department, attending any scheduled meetings, ordering supplies, working with vendors, submitting maintenance/tool room/metrology requests, and usually ending with a daily Material Review Board meeting. It would use up the rest of the characters to tell you what i learned; but to sum up the importance of what i learned - Safety First, then quality, and finally production. Management and workplace culture can change often, and adapting to these changes are vital. Usually the hardest part about working at Veeder Root is making sure that temporary countermeasures do not become permanent countermeasures - it is easy to become overwhelmed with tasks in which priorities are constantly shifting. The most enjoyable part of the job happens when the most critical events occur, and your actions are the defining moment in what saved the day.
Safe, structured working environment, opportunity to advance, always something new

Lack of accountability among colleagues results in a lot of finger pointing among peers. Not a recommended place to work. High turnover ratio (1-2 departures every 3 months) Average tenure of professionals ~3 years.
easy manufacturing positions, not technically challenging. easy to leave work at work
A good place to work just not utilizing my degree enough, and not challenging enough. No room for advancement.

A very bright and helpful engineering staff provides insights into the operation and maintenance of products.

I enjoy being able to work on many different tasks that often provide me with learning opportunities.
