Coordinate Industries Ltd. Employee Review

A strange company to work for.

Typically, you'll come to work to see what jobs are running or being setup. You will then run or continue to setup the jobs. As you finish Pieces, typically you will be checking tolerances on them or looking for defects.Sometimes you will be overloaded with multiple machines with very low cycle times.Other times you will zone out and only have a 3 hour long part and a 30 minute long part to run.Management seems to only care about supervisors opinions. Some supervisors will specifically target you as a problem if you are unlucky. Other times they will promote people that are not very good.Another ongoing issue is that there is almost zero consistency in how people are treated for mistakes. One person damaged an 800k machine and nothing happened. Another person was caught sitting in a chair for five hours instead of doing their job and was kept for years before they left.Company culture is fairly good. Cycle times on the machines can allow some smalltalk between employees, which is fine. Be careful who you talk to, however.People who become employed at this company either stay for many years, or leave rather quickly. Make of that what you will.

Pros

Free Coffee, Interesting Characters, Experience for new machinists

Cons

Rumors, low pay

People I work with were really nice but management and owners of the company not so much

The owners of the company are not transparent with the workers and to the point where they're not even transparent with management ...therefore made a very uneasy atmosphere and work in

Impossible to grow as a person. And hard to get better position after even working 3 years. Long hours and wiered timings. Hard to manage familylife and work.

Free golfing and parties

Make of it what you will

There are definitely some old school guys here that you're going to have to learn how to navigate. It can be a disorganized, but they're always looking to promote from within. Keep your head down, do your job, show a medium amount of interest in the job and they'll shine on you. There's a lot of flexibility to move between departments and shifts.It's family owned, so that obviously comes with pluses and minuses. They pay you for attending events, give extra paid days over the holidays, and I've never heard of them refusing vacation time. If you're competent, decent, slightly personable, and keep the machines running, you'll be fine.
