It was a good place to work
Plan Management Specialist (Current Employee) –  Jacksonville, FL27 February 2017
When I first started moral was good and it was a team environment. The lack of management in my department, and the allowance of harrassment by certian co-workers and looking the other way as others took advantage of time and salary has lowered moral tothe point where none of us want to be there anymore.

Work Like Balance does not exist
MTA (Current Employee) –  United States15 February 2017
Get paid for 40 hours, but average 50-60. Overtime is determined by your manager, so pay, some don't. Fear of the plant closing is constantly hanging over your head. Working with union employees is like working with day car children.

Great learning experience
Environmental, Health and Safety Intern (Former Employee) –  Erie, PA25 January 2017
I had an Environmental, Health, and Safety internship at GE Transportation so it wasn't a full time job. I was hoping to get a full time job out of the internship but later found out there isn't much room to grow and not many opportunities. the internship itself was a great learning experience. Co-workers and work environment were great, always willing to help and teach new things. The internship was mostly a management type of work, over seeing tasks and making sure they were completed. Not much to do with engineering, but some environmental sampling, compliance tasks, and safety related tasks. It is a good gig if you want to focus on the industrial/Business side of Environmental Engineering.

Great entry level job
Assembler (Current Employee) –  Fort Worth, TX24 January 2017
Great entry level position for a young adult. the pay is decent but it is difficult to climb the corporate ladder. You receive a lot of training on how to be lean and 6 sigma which could potentially help you with a future job
Pros
Lean and 6 sigma training
Cons
no degree, no moving up

They work you until you're numb to it
n/a (Current Employee) –  n/a2 December 2016
The typical work day for an employee is 10-11 hours. If you put in your 8 hours and then leave, you're a "lazy" employee. It's a high-stress environment every day. Managers are very good at committing to unreasonable goals and tasks - especially because all they have to do is commit and not actually follow through with them. There is no work-life balance - no matter what they try to tell you when they hire you on. They do invest a lot of time and money to train employees and teach them all they need to know. To me, this doesn't compensate for all of the other negatives of this company.
