    Pros

    Great reputation and at one time was one of the best in the industry. Still have a few good people and idea's left. They carry some good manufacturing lines. Probably helps they sold off Equipment rental end.

    Cons

    Not a force i the market any more.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on material handling that seems to be strength.


  2. Good company to work for experience. They really care about of the employees and they take care of their people.

    Pros

    Very updated equipment to work with and excellent training is provided. Good co workers who help each other out.

    Cons

    Alot of away time from family when its busy. Other times there is no offshore work so that means you won't be getting paid.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises more often and employees would stick around longer.


  3. No room for advancement or salary upgrades.

    Pros

    Well, you get an ISTC badge...

    Cons

    Communication between mechanics and admin are at its worst. Won't pay you what you deserve (you're lucky to get $14/hr). Too many safety hazards and doesn't do anything about it. OSHA would shut that place down in a heartbeat. No respect between 'the man' and the mechanics. Considered a 'revolving door' company because of the rate they loose employees. Forget taking off because family is in hospital, you'll get fired.

    Pros

    bonus every week you show up on time and are there everyday with no accidents

    Cons

    everything else, they say after 90 days you get rolled over from the temp agency to the company with benifits i know people that go over a year and never get rolled over. they treat you like crap and upper management likes to hire their friends who have no clue what they are doing instead of qualified individuals.you never know what time you are getting off until the end of that day and you never know ahead of time if you work saturday or not

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who know what they are doing or train them properly, and if you actually treated your work force with respect and recognized hard workers and gave them an opportunity to advance people wouldnt laugh when you try to get a job after dragon and say yeah i hear those guys are cashholes


  6. Good place to work if you thrive in a heavy manufacturing plant.
