Nice relaxed place to work.
Some employees were worth avoiding.

Management was sub par.

Wages were doable but could be better.

Work was sometimes chaotic & disorganized.

People were mostly good.

Supervisor was good after we had an argument and made up, he doesn't take attitude and I respect that.
Pros
Good pace of work, most employees were good
Cons
Wages at median rate, chaotic and disorganized at times, night supervisor was a terror and unsafe

I was employed by Atlas Hydraulics then Gates Corp bought us out, made all kinds of promises to not change things and then the decline came. Within 2 years of being Gates they have become one of the worst employers in town.
Pros

Fairly clean environment, air conditioned plant. Good benefits, tool allowance. Able to bank overtime.
3 shift rotation a big negative, company is publicly traded, management is more worried about the dollar sign then keeping employees happy , which is sad to see. Otherwise good place to work

Gained a lot of experience from Gates Corporation. Great co-workers over there also and great staff, A lot of work, they keep you busy and they give you opportunities to earn new position spots.

I worked for this company from December 10, 2000 to February 01, 2002 on a contract deal as an SPC Coordinator.
I liked the work environment, the cooperative staff, and the organization of the place, in general. Management understood the job necessity and provided all the tools that are required to perform the task within the assigned time frame, and the designated working area.

Communication across departments is not great, and the management team is poorly skilled to lead a necessary transformation to solve this problem.
The upside is that engineers and technicians generally are highly skilled at their work, therefore things get done, but painfully.

Only worked at Gates as part-time for a period of 1 year. Even though kept on applying for full-time jobs but unfortunately most jobs were given to people with more seniority or in-house employees.

Welcome to the company where every schedule is made up and common sense doesn't matter.

there is no such thing as a typical day as there are so many mistakes done by so many departments that the entire plant runs on the edge of falling apart.
Pros
management gets paid for overtime
Cons
You are replaceable and you will be replaced as soon as you burn out or go crazy
