I have been working at Plastek as an intern (Less than a year)
Plastek is a large company with many opportunities. There are multiple production divisions, tool shops, mold design and building, automation division, and more. I work as an intern in the automation group and I have gained a lot of good experience.
Sometimes work gets slow and there is not much to do as an intern, but as I gained experience I had more work assigned to me. If you are patient and show ambition, you will be given more responsibilities and duties.
Advice to Management
Management should gather more input from the lower level workers, such as maintenance and operators, when making decisions regarding the machines. I saw a lot of frustration from the lower level workers when management made decisions about machines without consulting the employees responsible for maintaining them.
