Most of the people are great. Supervisor’s are good people. Management sucks. Machining is a heavy job, very repetitive. Little training or support. Used to be lots of overtime, but not anymore. Very dirty and extremely hot in the summer.
Pros
Pay is good for area
Cons
Don’t know how long the company will last

Work environment sucks, you get no help. Treated as a outsider, lots of talking behind your back. They don't invest in repairs to machinery, machines they are old. Break down all the time. No leadership from Management, union runs the show in there.
Its dirty and flooring is full of caked on oil and metal on floors. Nothing is clean in machine shop side.

I enjoyed working with the guys at Wescast, regular hours, steady work. The pay a few short years ago was better but its close to home and was secure.

Place is a complete joke! Picked their favorites and let them do whatever they wanted to! Would use you because you knew how to perform jobs that others knew but refused to do! Supervisor came to work drunk and took all his problems out on certain employees! Constant mandatory overtime made for a guaranteed 6 day work week most of the year! You would be better off to go elsewhere where you are treated with some kind of respect because you won’t be treated that way at Wescast.

Wescast is a frustrating place to work. The systems, equipment and management style are out of date and difficult to work with. The company is struggling with retention of talented and forward thinking people. As a result, growth is slow to non existent. I’m not sure that the ownership really wants to see success.

for about 3 years, I liked it, they paid students well so that helped me save up for school. Certain jobs were dirty or tough, but nothing unusual or extreme.

There are a lot of friendly coworkers, the management was pretty flawed for most of the time I worked there, one manager did whatever he wanted and treated some workers worse than others, and another didn't know what he was doing at all for most of his employment. As far as I know, both of those managers have left the plant I worked at though.

Too many uneducated and/or unskilled people working on the floor, and in my opinion in the leadership roles and management too. No work life balance, you only work. High stress because of really bad organization. Once the new ownership took over it just got worse.

I enjoyed my time here running a CNC Machine. Was always a good pace work day and there was always something to do. If the Machines were running good the day always flew by.

Management was always good at addressing any concerns, time off request and always had good communication with there teams.


Benifits and pay were great and there was always room for advancement as the company continues to grow with new contracts.

Wescast Industry is manufacturer of exhaust manifolds for the automotive industry which quality standards and safety requirements are met. I was hired on as part of a new group of new employees for the plant. Helpful people when being trained in different areas it was a good learning experience and very interesting. My co-workers were awesome and funny whether it was day or night shift I was on.
