Fluxcore Welder (Former Employee), Houston, TX – September 2, 2014
A typical day at work. Wait for the lead man's instructions on what is needed to do and which station you would be working at for that day. Normally you will have a pole which is used to hold electric lines, weld any fixtures that is needed to be welded. Also sometimes there are repairs needed, make all repairs, check your work, inform the lead man. – more... Wait at your station until the welding inspector comes and see if there is anymore needed work to do on the pole. That is usually the everyday procedure at normal day of work. – less

Account Manager I (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – August 5, 2014
Pros: customer service week
Cons: no15 minute breaks
A typical work day is quite busy. The early morning hours are spent resolving tasks from the previous day, updates to the customer via email or phone. Sending order resolutions and EDI Error Notifications that have sat overnight in the order database.
Throughout the day, I am consistently involved with detailed order management, which consists of order – more... entry, modifications, reporting shipping discrepancies, submitting debit/credit requests, cross referencing competitor's part numbers and answering incoming calls for price and availability. I have the liberty to handle most situations as I see fit, of course there are general guidelines to follow, but it is ok to go outside of the box, when it's within reason.
My co-workers are tenured, most have been there over 10 years. The hardest part about the job is knowing that there is not much room for growth or advancement. The most enjoyable part of my department is meeting the customer's needs, especially expediting orders at their request for an emergency situation. – less
very rough environment to work in, very safe but very hot and dirty and lots of fatigue on a person.
Senior Welder (Current Employee), Lancaster, SC – July 2, 2014
very hot in the summer, very cold in the winter, your never comfortable in the work area. very dirty work environment, does have excellent benefits and very decent pay, management could have their priorities a little bit more in line, but i guess everybody has their flaws. other than the misery of standing on concrete floors 12 hours a day. if you can – more... get over that, then your good to go. – less
Finisher (Former Employee), Portland, TN – May 23, 2014
Pros: weekly pay, paid lunch break
Cons: inconsistent quality standards, lack of concern for individual employees
I found an ineffective method for distribution of work load. Some presses are known to be faster than others and there seemed to be a pattern of assigning the same people over and over. I requested a move to a different area due to a personal conflict and was told it would happen, but it did not. Despite consistently doing an excellent job with very – more... few quality issues, I could not get a performance review that would qualify me for promotion. – less
