I liked the company and the people. Great work/life balance, compensation, and culture. Good benefits. I would definitely consider working here again, and I left on good terms. I did have two suggestions for areas of improvement. First, make sure that job descriptions are clear. My job description was not well planned; at times, I felt like my superiors did not know what to do with me. Second, the PTO policy is not great. You start off with two weeks per year, and then after three years of service, you get three weeks per year. You don't get another week until you've been there ten years. Most places I have worked at give you four weeks of PTO after being employed for five years. Plus, you are not allowed to roll over any unused PTO at year end, and if you leave the company, you do not get to cash out any unused PTO. Those are not modern, good policies. Otherwise, it's a good company.
One of the many core values is "Have Fun" and ISCO certainly does. Never have I worked for a better company in life. Also great to note another core value is Family Atmosphere. Everyone is happy and positive here. Very drama free and fun to work at. Business Casual attire but I wear my chucks most days.

As a former Lead Industrial Maintenance Mechanic with over 30 years of experience in heavy industrial repair, I got little cooperation from existing employees or management from day one when I hired in. This is basically a service writer position and not a supervisor position where you won't get any factory training (all the experienced factory trainers quit) and you really won't have enough time to learn anything. This was not an Industrial Maintenance Mechanic position, it was a medium to light mobile construction equipment mechanic classification. You will be responsible for rental equipment that comes back or goes out. Inventory reports and stocking, Work orders write-ups and parts ordering. Scheduling and tracking of machines on Rental software. Shop gets back charged for machines not check-in in less than 24 hours and equipment breakdowns on the job. All minor repairs, oil, and filters, as well as all fuel filter, changes and clean up and write-ups of all incoming units which can sometimes take hours. Answering emails, phone calls, customers, and headquarters questions, I was ignored, undermined and overruled on many occasions. With their current personnel, I don't see that changing.
Lots of hours
Tight time frames, Not a supervisor position, Can't finish in 8 hours, No support
The work was hard but rewarding. Sometimes I got teamed up with other workers who were less than motivated, which I don't like because I want my work to be good quality. I enjoyed working on the fork lift and they were good about worker safety and training.
I have enjoyed working at ISCO Industries mainly because they have a very friendly crew with a great family atmosphere. Having never attempted high pressure fusion welding, my trainer was very patient and has molded me into a wonderful fabricator.
Not fast paced or rushed
Not enough machines for the volume of work, One crane
