Driver/Forklift Operator (Current Employee) – Eden Prairie, MN – 4 June 2017
Management does not care. Always cutting hours. Losing customers frequently. Moral is horrible. No team environment. Hardest part of job is getting there. A good day is being away from shop and dealing with great customers.

No opportunity for advancement, management is corrupt
Laboratory Technician (Current Employee) – Greensburg, IN – 23 March 2017
I've worked there for a long time and it was called Bluewater. Bodycote then bought us and it was all down hill after that. They are the biggest heat treatment company in the world, which means they don't care about equality or anything when it comes to the floor level. They want to work the employees for as little as possible to make as much money as they can, even allowing equipment to suffer and risk safety. These are all reasons I'm leaving here. They don't take advice or spend money to fix anything.
People are nice
Hot, heavy lifting and twisting, fast paced, short break only one, clock out for lunch, gossip
NDT Inspector MT Level (Current Employee) – Huntington Park, CA – 16 February 2017
They can never keep their employees happy that's the reason why too many people are always leaving This is a great company to work for if you want learn this industry.this company is more for a stepping stone not a career
there was no moving up or hope for advancment in company except for those related.

humid hot and working with heavy dangerous materials
Line Worker (Former Employee) – Canton, MI – 27 January 2016
i really liked most of the people in this plant but i had one manager that use to say rude things all the time and his boss would never say anything about it even when he said profanity to workers. and called them out there name and you should have to work with anyone like that,
A typical day at work for me would be to arrive before 8 a.m. and check my email. I would gather data for spreadsheets/reports and have them out by the daily/weekly/monthly deadline. Then I would typically sort invoices, scan those that are emailed to customers and send them out, and fold the rest, stuff envelopes, and have them ready before the mail carrier picks them up. The rest of the day is spent sorting AP documents, matching, answering phones, doing collections, filing, and handling any issues that may arise. I learned a lot about accounts payable in this job. The management is great, my co-workers are great. It's a relaxed environment most of the time, and I don't have a real schedule, which is the most enjoyable part of the job in which I am able to make my own hours. The hardest part of the job is the pressure at the end of the month when reports are due.
No schedule, wear jeans, lots of learning opportunities.
No opportunity for advancement, no benefits in my current situation, hours have been cut due to dependence on oil & gas.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – 9 March 2015
Dont expect much in the way of promotions, bonus, or hiring of qualified people to fill much needed craft positions. More concerned with bottom line than improving the safety and reliability of the equipment.
long hours, unclear and difficult processing of capital money.
