Lineman (Former Employee) – 3333 S. Peach Ave. Fresno, CA 93725 – 5 August 2014
A typical day at work was being assigned to a work station and making sure the product was stacked correctly without any breakage. I learned how to operate machinery to fulfill my job task as far as operating and maintaining machinery that automatically stacked glass and operated a special forklift that transferred large sheets of glass from one place to another. Management made sure things ran smoothly during the work-shift. I found that people in management knew their job well and had been working for the company for 15 to 25 years. My co-workers were very helpful in supporting me while I was employed and very friendly The majority of them had been working there for over 20 years and were getting ready to retire. The hardest part of the job was working double shifts when I was picked. Especially if I had worked the graveyard shift that night. The most enjoyable part of job was working with fellow employees who were of help and support and receiving a weekly paycheck.
The pay was very good and the fellow employees were helpful.
The weekly work-shift changes were hard to get used to. The first week would be a day shift, second week would be swing shift and third week would be a graveyard shift.

I worked with glass, putting primer on and sending down line. I also did inspecting, making sure glass wasn't chipped and primer was in all the right spots. The people I worked with made the job better. It was an inviting workplace.

This company moves fast and it keeps you agile. There is tons of room for creativity, empowerment and ownership. Like any large company, things come down to profitability and sustainability and those without good business acumen, will struggle. All this being said, people are appreciated and recognized.
There is great internal competition and that keeps us constantly pushing for better. I'm extremely happy here.
Autonomy, Opportunity to lead, Excellent customers and Amazing staff.
Lingering AkzoNobel mentality slows us down at times.
