great plant manager,teamwork from the supervisors down through the ranks..friendly..ot was optional,. people said good morning to each other every day and they actually meant it! if you needed help ,just ask
During my period there I've learn how to work safe and efficiently, offtain times i would challenge myself to complete a work order which vares from 20- 30 pieces within a few hours. the parts itself was simple because most of the projects assemble in jigs. management wasnt the best but they still manage the work which was great for me. there was some slow days as well so we had to work according to our daily task. the enviroment there was okay, most of the workers and supervisors there were very friendly and heplful. the hard thing for me was, they under paid most of the workers included my self, and secondly some of the parts werent place were there should be located, sometimes it took most of the morning period locating the correct work order. but other than that the thing i most enjoy was there family socials. this is my overall review of the company.
Typical day at work I would put my coveralls on get all my gear set up at the sandblaster. Then I would use the radio call the forklift guys to get the stuff I need to sandblast then I would begin sandblasting. I would sandblast the metal pieces and get the forklift employee to send it to paint-line to be painted. Some days I would work on paint-line depending if someone was sick or started late. I learned alot of tools and how to fix and dismantle the sandblasting equipment if something gave out or needed repairing I was also told that I had been there best sandblaster they ever had at Meridian and that the work was great. The job was nice until winter because it was outside, no stress, and had a blast doing what I did.
I worked there almost 2 years. They like to over hire then let go of people. The management is not very good. Culture is very diverse. They do offer a reasonable wage. I never received an increase in my 2 years. There is usually steady work but it is agricultural based so this year there was lay offs
