    I have been working at Gemmiti Model Art full-time (More than a year)


    I have been on the management team at Gemmiti Model Art for over a year working closely with the owner.
    Gemmiti Model Art provides a top notch scale models of all types. Because of the high quality work required to be done, it takes hard working, skilled and dedicated people who take pride in their work to succeed here. If you don't come with that criteria and strong work ethic, you may find yourself very disappointed and want to not continue working here.

    As a previous poster stated, "If you have have glaring weaknesses they're going to be exposed." So I highly recommend to anyone considering a position with the company to be truthful and don't pretend to know and do things you have never done before. There is no faking it here so be sure you are skilled and know your stuff.

    Lisa is a professional and passionate business owner who works with her employees often on the trust system. She doesn't hover and micro manage her staff. She puts a lot of trust in her staff and just asks for hard work and efficiency in return. Lisa is very flexible and tries her best to accommodate her staff whenever she can. Lisa's passion is often misconstrued and for some who can be overly sensitive may feel overwhelmed. The work atmosphere can get very busy with multiple jobs and high demands from our clients so you must be able to handle multi tasking, working at fast pace and meeting demanding deadlines.

    Below please also see a list of pros to working at Gemmiti Model Art:

    * Bi-weekly pay for all the time you put into your projects and jobs
    * Guarantee you are working with straight shooter management, no lies, no sugar coating.
    * really good energetic production staff to work with.
    * option to start a 401K account
    * working in clean, state of the art tools equipped and fully stocked work shop for all your model making needs
    * opportunities to earn bonus on jobs completed on time and on budget
    *competitive pay and opportunity to climb the ranks
    * working with strong female management team


    The cons of this job are quite simple, working here doesn't work out if:

    1. You treat the work like a hobby and not interested in a fast pace moving environment.
    2. You're afraid of deadlines and at times high stress when there is lots of work to be done.
    3. You don't like to be on your feet all day.
    4. If you can't be trusted to work independently without a manager constantly standing over your shoulder.
    5. If you can't handle or don't like multi tasking, keeping your work space clean and communicating with your team.

    If you are any of the above on the list, then Gemmiti Model Art is not the place for you to work.

    There is testing that you do. It was fine and I like that they test because to me it means that they care about who they bring into the group.
