Milk it for pay and play dumb

Weld Line Mechanic (Former Employee) Woodland Hills, CA

ProsI was able to hide out there collecting a paycheck while looking for something better. I came in to the job without the intention to slack off but, after getting yelled at and threatened by the management I just came in punched in and did the absolute bare minimum to get by. I just let the machines run and let all of the crap we made flow through to the customers. I figured it served them right to loose the contracts.

ConsIt is still a hideous place to work and really dirty. The company was trying to automate more workers jobs while I was there. The management style is really poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry respect first. In the end if we do a poor job your boss doesn't make any money. Enjoy your layoff as well. Looks like the "chicken finally came home to roost"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
