I've worked as a fabricator for a few years now and have seen lots of improvement in that time. Compared to my last company they are very strong on safety. The pay and benefits is good, but they also do other stuff for the employees like a yearly fishing trip, picnic, parties, and a recent bowling event (it was a blast). The work is fast paced and challenging. When I started I didn't know anything about autoclaves, but now I'm a lead and I've built two autoclaves on my own and have lead a team on larger ones. They have lots of work and if you like overtime there is plenty. They also have improved quality and you can see employees spending more time making sure the work is perfect. They are also expanding and just bought another building down the road. We're told they will be putting in a gym and game room for the employees, so that will be another pro.
It's sometimes tough to get material and drawings for jobs. The engineers need to put drawings out on time instead of at the last minute. The shop manager tends to pull people from jobs when other jobs get behind. This can screw up your own job. Its sometimes difficult to get welding machines and curtains. please buy more. Field work can be tough on families if your on a long field job.
Advice to Management
Please try to weed out the shop employees who don't like working. Its a drag to see people soaking the company. Reward those employees who work hard and get the job done.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at ASC Process Systems (Sylmar, CA).
I was called by the HR manager. She interviewed me over the phone and asked a number of questions about my current job, my expectations, any limitations, and asked what my salary expectation was. After the interview she scheduled me for a face-to-face interview. When I arrived at ASC I filled out some paperwork and then met the Engineering Supervisor. He as a nice guy and asked about my skills. Because much of the job is design, he focused on SolidWorks and Inventor. ASC utilizes Inventor, but they're happy to have anyone with good solid-modeling background. I did have good experience in this regard. He spent some time discussing that this was a tough job, very challenging, and not without stress. After 10-15 minutes of interview, he took me up to be interviewed by the president. The president was a casual guy, wearing jeans and an ASC polo shirt. He was friendly and went through my resume, asking questions about my past jobs. He wanted me to explain what I did for these companies and what responsibilities I had. He asked a few questions about each job. After the Q&A, he spent 5-10 minutes discussing the mechanical engineering position. He stressed that the job was not an easy job, that it required a very good understanding of engineering priniciples, and that it involved project management. He warned me that only 1 our of every 5 engineers have the mental tools to be able to flourish in the environment. He also said that because the company had grown so fast, there was still too much work for the current staff, and as a result it was a hectic environment. I got the feeling he really didn't want to sugar-coat the job. He said it was not a boring place to work. I think he ended the conversation with "Are you sure this is the the type of job you can handle?" I answered, Yes.
- What was the biggest mistake you have made in a job, and what did you do to make sure it didn't happen again? 1 Answer
I was somewhat underpaid at my previous job, so I was happy that ASC offered me $5K/year more than what I was getting before. Because of that, I didn't push for more.
