Quality Control Inspector and Assembler (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLMarch 12, 2014
I enjoyed working here, it taught me how to gather the information and materials I would need for the day. Management was very helpful. I felt the co-workers very compatible and skilled. Nothing hard about this job, but the most challenging part would probably be keeping up with the fast pace, but it made the day go by faster. Found the co-workers the most enjoyable part of the job. Good teamwork is the key to a successful company.

Assembler (Former Employee) –  Largo, FLNovember 12, 2013
Printing out work oders,pulling parts from location and warehouse for different machines for kitters to put on feeders. Data entry, to look for lost or missing parts,inventory to make sure the parts are in correct location and make sure the count is correct,if not you search in the system to see where it was used last,or management has to find an alternate part or we put the kit on hold until part arrives. We used ipods to correctly take parts from location so it was done in real time. The hardest part is the end of the quarter when they would change the work orders all around for shipping dates,but it kept things intresting,alot of smiling faces.
Pros
pot lucks dinners
Cons
no increase in wages for six years
