    No micromanagement
    Great education benefits


    Absolutely no development of hourly employees. Where you come in is where you will stay unless you are EXTREMELY talented or are able to befriend your supervisor in and out of work. You are not given formal training on how very sophisticated electronic assemblies work. If you are lucky your trainer is good. But a strong Test Technician is usually an introvert and loathe to explain things. The average hourly worker who is interested in taking on more responsibility and willing to grow will not be happy at the Phoenix plant. The internal job website is not much more of an advantage over external applicants. The the education benefits are great. You can get a degree paid for, get several hours of work off every week, and get cash bonuses when you receive your diploma. But after getting a degree, don't expect any developmental support. You will be forced to find another job and resign. It seems like salaried workers have more programs and opportunities to grow.

    Open manufacturing floor means you will be alongside assemblers who are jealous that technicians get payed more. The assemblers love to watch everyone and tattle on each other. They will get Test Technicians into trouble too. Nobody has personal space except for their lockers so turf wars are not uncommon.

    The entire factory is black, white, and blue. Humidifiers throughout the whole building hiss loudly all day long. You will be working LOTS of OT to make up for low starting salary so expect to get worn down by the constant exposure to a drab, proletarian environment. Government contract work means every minute of employee time is accounted for so taking a break that is 1 minute too long will get you fired.

    My supervisor avoided just about everyone except the 1 person he liked and wouldn't answer emails from people. Performance feedback was given once a year at review time when you were told that, despite not being given opportunities to prove yourself, you suck.

    I can't comment much on how the rest of the company operates as I was stuck in a backwater position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
