I have been working at Bodycote Thermal Processing full-time (Less than a year)
The Columbus facility has a great team and is dedicated to customer service. There are plenty of growth opportunities for the business. There are a lot of good things happening.
Plant is older but is in the process of getting upgraded.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work.
I applied online. I interviewed at Bodycote Thermal Processing (Canton, MI) in May 2018.
Walked into a 3 person panel interview at their Michigan facility. I asked a Senior Manager why he liked working at Bodycote - "he said he was there because he hadn't found a better job yet." I'm from the West Coast, and maybe standards for Senior Management to have more tact and A business acumen is different in the West - but if my boss heard me say something like that in an interview - I'd be fired! Heck, I wanted to fire this bloke right on the spot myself... I was interviewed by two engineers - and we all know how engineers act in interviews - they ask questions regarding technical areas that relate to their educational background - not necessarily the job role/description itself. One engineer (who was on work visa - the moron) kept asking me about my knowledge of thermal heat treating / processes - which I answered. But then again, my background was not in thermal heat treating (turning on ovens to bake metal) - oooohhw - that's rocket science. The job description quickly turned from GM to like some sort of production supervisor. Anyways - I was offered the same position with their competitor, and a sales management role with yet another competitor of theirs. And the very first thing on my agenda is taking away all their business - and I will (because they're idiots).
