    Modelshop Toolmaker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Clarence, NY

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Greatbatch.

    Interview Details

    I was hired through a forced company buyout, as Greatbatch did with multiple companies. There was no "interview" per say. They took me into the model shop, and some co-"workers" immediately didn`t waste any time in trying to make me look not capable, or qualified and prevented methods that job shops use to save/make money. After these few realized I had different, sometimes better, sometimes not, ideas that were not in their "apprenticeship" books, Some, not all acted in concert to make me look bad, thus keeping my base pay at the minimum, and raises for 6 years, adding up to less than a new hire after 6 years. A 2nd year HR person has no power over a 30 year supervisor. I blame myself for not putting them in their place, and/or not quitting before I did. Thin skin peels away fast at Greatbatch. Hopefully all operations will move to Texas sooner than later, and I will revel in these few "model makers" trying to do my new job. They will fail. But, I am not like them, and I will help them. 100% unlike what some did to myself.
