Owens Corning – Memphis, TN
The purpose of this job is to perform all equipment and facilities related electrical, mechanical, sheet metal, welding, instrument, and pipe fitting… Owens Corning
I worked at Owens Corning full-time (Less than a year)
Coworkers were good to work with, no problems. Pay & benefits are good for area. Good product.
Reneged on training OC agreed to provide at time of interview. Also OC corp required safety training was skipped yet was expected perform before Arch/Flash trained. To-do lists were waiting for parts to be purchased. Reprogrammed final palletizer to reduce downtime and significant increase in plant output was rewarded w/ termination without any credit days before probationary period was over and full benefits were due. Later discovered previous tech likewise terminated.
Advice to Management
If OC corp. electrical stds. exist, they were not found.Drawings are poorly maintained and was reprimanded for attempting to bring this plant up to date, as a waste of time. Intrenched "old school" maint. mgmt. is nepotist; mostly friends or family. No regular system backups, as might be expected. There is no headroom for controls and found overloaded and overheated conditions. Had to purchase electrical components on my own in order to procure basic resistors. Funding for controls, or even hand tools must be begged from MEs while EL controls needs are chronically ignored. Expect downtime will increase as capital investment in new lines will suffer downtime operating above max temps.
