Sr. Manufacturing Administrative Processor (Former Employee), Canton, OhioMarch 20, 2014
Pros: good health benefits and good pay
Cons: working in all weather, dirty environment, lots of stress when production didn't go as planned
Though Timken is a well respected company, it wasn't the right fit for me. There is no compassion for workers family life and unexpected issues that come with having a family. Being the lowest person on the organizational chart, I was given many duties that helped others, it taught me better organizational skills and prioritizing time. My co-workers – more... were very helpful on the hourly side, but I didn't receive much respect from the salary side since I was an hourly person with salary responsibilities. The most enjoyable part of my job was learning the process of a steel mill and earning respect for the associates that worked on shifts. It's a very dangerous job, and can be very intense at times. – less
