A typical workday at Kaba Ilco was working hard because we were on production.I learned how to make doorknobs,and locks,all the management was great as long as we did our job.My co-workers was supportive especially if anyone needed help.The hardest part of my job there was when we went on production until I caught on.The most enjoyable part of my job – more... was the people. – less
For the most part employees worked as family until it was sold and new management came in.
Machine Operator, company driver (Former Employee), Rocky Mount, NC – October 3, 2013
I went to work there in 1984 doing a government contract making post office locks. I continued on the job after contract ended.While there I took a locksmith course, CNC Machinery, Blue print reading. I always enjoyed working there and consider myself a team player. After 20 years I became driver for the company; taking mail, parts to different areas – more... of the state and Virginia, and pulling orders.In 2009 when the economy took a downward turn I was laid off and it really devastated me because I have always worked. I then started taking classes at the local college. – less
I have learned how car key and many other keys are made from start to finish. My co-workers are friendly, but not very talkative. Hardest part of the day is being stationary all day. I'm a active person I have to be moving.
