Review of working experience with Altec
Mechanical Assembler (Former Employee), Creedmoor, NCJune 30, 2014
Pros: making money
Cons: harsment, poor leadership, poor quality
Harasment on chipper line, if your a temp you take a lot of blame and are belittled by upper management. Poor supervising. MOST workers that get hired on are affiliated with each other outside of work, giving outsiders no chance to advance. If you have family inside you will advance.Creedmoors Altec needs to be investigated on mistreatment to employees – more... and harassment. – less

Welder (Current Employee), Birmingham ALJune 27, 2014
Pros: benefits, 401k, insurance
Cons: management, hr
If you want to move up be ready to brown nose with the best and be a snake in the grass. The only good place to work in this plant is Quality. The quality manager is what needs to be carbon copied into every other management position. Group leads are lazy, supervisors rarely on the floor. 85% of the welders only work 50% of the time they are there. – more... Life/work balance can get bad sometimes. 4 12s a 10 and a 7 with occasional sundays. – less

Good work, poor company
technician (Former Employee), Aurora, COApril 9, 2014
Pros: good benefits
Cons: no company loyalty, employees and disposable
Job is not that hard but requires technical knowledge of hydraulic and electrical systems a must. Detail oriented person is needed. Consequences for missing or performing a job incorrectly could cause someone there life. Local management was good to employees but never backed employees when it came to corporate or customer issues. Corporate could care – more... less about employees, treated as dispensable. Tend to spend lots of time wondering if you will get laid off due to being slow or fired because a desk jockey didn't like the numbers. Pay levels are low for the experience needed to perform the work. Constant training required by company with no pay increases for completion. Very little room to move up the company ladder unless your will to move around the country. – less

Decent place to get a check, too much drama though
Paint Prepper (Former Employee), Creedmoor, NCApril 2, 2014
Pros: pay is great.
Cons: poor management, slow pace of work, dealing with not being from the area.
Worked 2nd shift, worst shift in the whole plant. Started at 4:15 and didn't get off until 3 a.m. Prepped their industrial trucks for painting in the booth. I didn't learn much here, they worked at a very slow pace. Management wasn't great at all, they played favorites with the coworkers. If you didn't go to school or grew up with them they would look – more... over you and hire their friends. My co-workers were small town folks, some were cool to work with. The others, well let's just say they were stuck in the '50's / '60's. Hardest part about my job was dealing with all the drama in the paint shop and 2nd shift management. Enjoyable part of my job was clocking out during lunch and leaving for the day. – less

Cable Layer (Former Employee), Portland, ORMarch 9, 2014
I started my day heading to the hot tank and started to lay the cable that was just being made, so that it could be spliced together. Co-workers where awesome but the management didn't care about the employee's health.

SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Birmingham, ALDecember 30, 2013
Altec Birmingham has a very poor management team. From the General Manager to the Production Manager. The management team is very inexperienced and does not know how to treat a work force. The pay is great from top to bottom and the benefits are also. The values that the company tries to sell you on are nothing more than words on a card.

Paint line tech (Former Employee), Creedmoor, NCNovember 26, 2013
Pros: free lunches, they cater at least once a month
Cons: short breaks, the fumes are serious
Management is decent, I can say communication is present. It is hard work especially when there is a high volume of work. Yes that means means a lot of hours but the work is hard on the body. The hardest part of the day is when YOU think you're going home after a tired eight hours but it ends up been ten. The people are country, a little different for – more... me. Other than that nothing different from the typical work place. Some people you talk to and some people you don't. The actual process I was performing was cool just too repetitive and times. – less

CNC Laser Operator (Current Employee), Burnsville, NCNovember 17, 2013
Pros: close to home
Cons: weekend shift, and the length of time it takes to become a permanent employee
The hardest part of the job is working 12 hour shift Fri-Sun. Enjoy my coworkers. Coming from a precision work background to a production plant, I just don't feel my machining skills are being used or challenged.
