Receiving Clerk (Current Employee), Conroe, TXFebruary 3, 2015
No chance for advancement, I handle all receiving and QA it when it comes in. The hardest part of the job is all the heavy lifting and not having anyone to back me up or help. I have mastered the computer skills needed to perform my job to a high standard.

Quality Engineer (Former Employee), Chardon, OHJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: fast paced and challenging, your successes will be noticed and lauded
Cons: overtime is inevitable, anything negative can (and will) happen
You have to love quality to enjoy this opportunity, but if you do, it will be very rewarding. Management was great and will challenge you to do things you didn't think you were capable of. If not prepared, very easy to get overwhelmed and at times it can seem like all the other departments are against you but such is the nature of manufacturing. If you can succeed here, you can succeed anywhere

Operations Associate IV (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAOctober 16, 2014
Pros: yearly bonus, two days pay for perfect attendance, depending on years of service, you could get between 2 weeks to 5 weeks of vacation per year.
Cons: health insurance cost more each year and coverage was less each year
Get your pass down from the out going shift. Make sure you have enough material to carry you through your shift. Check with the coordinator if there are any changes to the work schedule. See if everyone is present and at their work station to ensure the schedule gets completed in a timely manner.

The hardest part of the job was having to wait while Maintenance worked on your machine to repair a problem and product is not being produced.

The most enjoyable part of the job was when everyone worked overtime to get a customer their product on time and the customer acknowledged the effort.
