Vigrous work schedule
Blender Man (Former Employee) –  Gallman, MS3 November 2013
A typical work day consisted of keeping my machine running and my bends filled. I learned that you had to pay close attention to detail and also be able to make a decision quickly. Management was ok and my coworkers where very hard working people. The hardest part of the job was the rotating schedule and the on call status. The most enjoyable part of the job was the amount of things you learned daily
Pros
insurance
Cons
rotating schedule

Not a great place to work.
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  La Porte, Texas9 September 2013
The maintenance manager will turn on you in a heartbeat, has the "my way or the highway" mentality and is not open to newer or better ways of performing routine tasks. You will be placed on a six month probation during which you will be under a microscope and will be watched via cameras hidden in the maintenance shop. One mistake and you can expect to be fired, which explains the large turn over rate at this facility. The lead millwright will not leave the office so expect to work alone at all times. This company does not offer a pension. It only offers a measly $.75 match 401K. There are better opportunities for good Millwrights elsewhere.
Pros
Small facility, unit operators are good people.
Cons
Maintenance manager, dangerous chemicals.
