    I worked at HITCO part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There's not much to it. Get to work on time. Clock in. Work. And get paid.
    This work place is a great way to start to learn skills that will help you out in more desirable job positions for different companies.

    Cons

    Difficulty with hours, It's hard to balance your social life with this job.
    Management is horrible, Being heard in this work place requires some determination.
    Extremely strict but if you have discipline then it shouldn't be that much of a problem.
    Competitive work place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.

    Pros

    enjoyed working in this department, other techs were up to par and knowledgeable. managers were friendly and accommodating.

    Cons

    company was loosing some contracts during the yrs I was with it which prompted me to look for new opportunities elsewhere.
    it seemed that turn over at higher management levels was high- every year there was a new CEO with new vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stabilize high management turn over.

    I worked at HITCO full-time

    Pros

    Great hands on experience with all stages of the manufacturing process. I found everyone I worked with to be exceedingly friendly. Other departments however did not get the same review. I was mentored well enough. Again, others did not find the same.

    Cons

    Really depends on which project you work on. Some people get run into the ground because low ball bids were used to bring in the contract. Sometimes I had no work and it was super boring.

    I have been working at HITCO

    Pros

    Its easy to get hired. Most people there are very anxious to leave causing lots of opening.

    Cons

    Total disrespect for the employees. They expect employees to pressure and be critical of other employees. It is a tight litle society of abuse. The companuies first response to a problem is who will be blamed for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lear the value of your human resources before all the good people leave.
