Learned a lot and had a great time doing it.

Apprentice (Current Employee)
Beaverton, OR

ProsThe company culture is great. Managers are willing to have fun with employees. The saying "work hard, play hard" is perfect for FIC.

ConsAs an apprentice, we didn't get paid, so we had to find other jobs that were willing to work around our minimal schedule.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want your employees to take you seriously, you need to act like a professional at all times.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
