Former Employee - Management in Chula Vista, CA
Former Employee - Management in Chula Vista, CA

I worked at Doncasters full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good engineers, maintenance, employees; a lot of employees work hard to make a good product and make the company successful, an honest group of people loyal to the company.

Cons

Terrible, oppressive GM/President - a bully; too many upper-management people that end up confusing operations instead of streamlining them; good old boy network with friends of GM/President; union was brought in recently due to terrible employee relations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Fire GM/President, reduce upper-management people, treat employees fairly

Doesn't Recommend

    Very Disappointing for Hourly workers.

    Current Employee - CNC Machinist in Greenville, SC

    I have been working at Doncasters

    Pros

    Basic Health Care, Below hourly wages, Dental Insurance, Yearly "Hot Dog" Picnic.

    Cons

    No "Cost-of-Living" Raise in 5 years. While Management "Reaps" in Their Bonuses" the Word "Status Que" really means a lot. 2011 was Physically a "Work Harder" & not "Smarter" year. Non Educated Management has produced Hourly workers to seek employment else where. Low hourly wages (Region & Nationally ) are below the 50% margin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heard of Erie Bolt losing 65% of their work force to General Electric?? Greenville,S.C. now has a new GE (Aviation) Facility along with their Turbine Facility. Shortage of CNC-Machinist to Newly Plants(ZF Transmission ) , Boush Rex Roth, And other facilities will make "Specialty Bar Products" wish they would have Vested in Their few workers ,Instead of giving Bonuses to Higher ups . I see an "ERIE BOLT" moment by the end of Summer!!
