    I have been working at Burgess-Norton Mfg. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits they have are good they have 401k, ESOP and ok medical Coworkers are good people everyone helps out everyone when needed.

    Cons

    I only recommend working here if you want to get experience and move on to something bigger and better.
    When I needed my supervisor I would have to walk around the whole plant sometimes up to 3 or 4 times just to find him if I had an issues. The front office or upper management is to crowded they have to many people. They keep pushing the machines to the max wanting more and more out of them without thinking about the operator. As long as they get their big bonus checks they really don't care how you make the parts just as long as you do. They don't train properly, I was put on a machine with two days of training and I complained about it but nothing was done in had to figure it out myself. Then they have the women checking these parts through a magnifying glass all day most of the time they check to many parts that they aren't even checking them so there's a quality issue right there. And there's Human Resources that works for the benefit of upper management, human resources treats employees like garbage, never gets back to you on time, you can't find the human resource person most of the time. The communication at this place sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your whole managing process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burgess-Norton Mfg. (Geneva, IL).

    Interview

    The interview was very relaxed and segmented with various managers. There was no itinerary - just manager names with job titles. Each manager interview lasted approximately one half hour to forty-five minutes.
