Pros

Future Growth Potential is positive. President and VP of R&D are go getters who understand what it takes to run the business.

Cons

There is a notable disconnect between middle and upper management; this may be that middle management is not transparent in their communication or there is a cultural barrier that is preventing candidness.

Advice to Management

Spend some time getting to know the people in manufacturing; you'll be surprized at what you learn.

  1. QC Inspectors are paid average - and its an easy job for someone just entering into the Quality Control field of work.

    Pros

    OT is voluntary and management is generally considerate of time off request Everyday quality inspection is easy SPC type work mostly - or preset gages / overlays Gage crib / Metrology manages inventory and maintenance of gauging. Pay is average considering the job description / area

    Cons

    All Staffmark employees get mandatory layoff after 2yrs of work, you are off 2 months - then THEY decide if you get hired back in. Lack of clear direction from HQ in Memphis - frequently changing protocols & criteria.

    Advice to Management

    Offer blueprint and/or general QC training for inspectors - if needed use a copay system for those who seek to advance their skills. Don't rely on Staffmark's general test to qualify candidates.
