4 star's are you serious?
Manufacturing (Current Employee), ChicagoJuly 23, 2014
Pros: holiday pay, a/c
Cons: no respect, high insurance, lack of intelligence
Worst company I have ever worked for. I hear is was great about 10 years ago. It is owned by Smiths Group which is U.K. Everyone proceed with caution unless you are British. Let's see first off the managers are way under qualified. You will only recieve a 2% raise a year across the board. So my advice is just relax and take it easy, no need to be a – more... hero. You will not get rewarded for it, trust me. Everyone that made this company are dropping like flies. Might I add no bonuses are giving despite a record breaking year. Someone compaired it to a morgue which is true. You will not advance unless someone dies or retires. – less

John Crane has good people to work with
Assembly Planner (Former Employee), Morton Grove, ILJune 4, 2014
Pros: good people to work with
Cons: too many changes within management
John Crane was a good company to work for. I took care of a certain seal line in my department and was happy doing my work.
Our department was under too many management changes and they decided that I, (together with 11 others), was not need so I was laid off.
I made lots of friends at John Crane. Most of them felt sad when they laid all the people – more... off that day.
I can say the hardest part of the job is when I could not deliver what the customers needed because I was short of component/s to make the seal/s. The most enjoyable is when I make customers happy by shipping the seal/s they need when they had breakdowns. I really made lots of friends when I worked at JCI. – less

Commercial Fuels Sales Support (Current Employee), ManchesterDecember 1, 2013
A typical day at work is hectic and very busy. I work within the OBM Team and we distribute the days work between each of us. Helping each other out whenever possible. Sharing knowledge and helping with certain Customers. The Team work well together, The hardest part of the Job is ensuring all aspects of the Order Book are given equal amounts of attention – more... and timely manner and correctly. The most enjoyable part of the role is Customer satisfaction. When you know you've gone that extra mile to ensure the Customer is given the Service they should have. – less

Custom nonstandard project coordinator (Current Employee), Morton Grove, ILSeptember 24, 2013
Pros: they don't hesitate to purchase a tool or anything to make things run smooth.
Cons: commuting
. I was hired as a temp to shadow board parts for testing (they have over 1,000 different set ups). I also participate and create various items for their Kaizen events.
. What I have learned is to apply my field experience as an auto mechanic to a manufacturing environment.
. My immediate supervisors keep adding odd tasks, to my regular duties, to prolong – more... my stay, until they can place me.
.The majority of my co-workers have worked there for over 15 years.
.The hardest part of my job is, at times finding assistance from the production workers.
. The most enjoyable part of the job is, looking back at the ideas that I have come up with, and still see them still in use and unmodified six months later. – less

Dirty Workplace, like working in a Coal Mine.

Pros: free lunch certain times of the week.
Cons: dirty working enviroment.
John Crane Manufactures Carbon seals, The nature of the Product
makes for a Dirty environment. Shop Personel seemed nice but most
of the Management Team worried more about their own little piece of the world and there was alot of Politics involved with the Job.

The most challenging part of the Job was the conflicting derections
that were given as to – more... how Management was going to operate the everyday business end of Production. – less
