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 – more... 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. – less

Bad Management with no communication between leadership
Machine Operator (Cell Leader) (Former Employee), Harlingen, TXSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: lots of hours
Cons: bad management
10-14 hour work days. Lots of lifting, pushing, and pulling of 50+ lbs.
Management not in tune with shop/cell functions just a get it done no matter what attitude. No communication between management resulting often with multiple contradicting instructions or double documentation. Hardest part of job was communicating with Mexican Nationals to get job – more... done correctly and dealing with conflicting or false instructions from management personnel. Most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I made the components from raw materials and some of the personnel made the job bearable. compensation was at the minimum for the trade. – less

I enjoyed working in a positive environment where the management was encouraging. My coworkers were easy to talk to and get along with. The hardest part of the job was not having a stable schedule.

Horrible company. Just don't work there
Anonymous (Former Employee), Kansas City, KSJune 27, 2014
Pros: learn a lot on your own.
Cons: dirty office. discriminative working environment. no respect for hard working employee.
Typical day at work is extremely high pressure and busy. Constantly being abused because you are responsible for everyone's mistake because the system is non-existed. I learned everything on my own. Management doesn't communication with lower ranking employees. They face no consequences breaking ethical rule. Many co-workers are very unprofessional – more... and lazy and refuse to work but will never lose their job. The hardest part of the job is being under appreciated and ignored while requested for help under tremendous pressure. Just glad that I quit and move on to much better thing.
After I quit, company refused to pay back paid vacation. I have to negotiate many many times. And after they agreed to pay, two weeks have passed and still got nothing. I still have to continue to negotiate. This is the worst company I've ever worked for. – less
