This PCC plant is doing better than most. Bonuses are higher than other PCC plants. Great young engineering staff. Manufacturing leadership is okay. Benefits are good.
Way of thinking is still old school. No accountability in the management staff. Engineering is needed to bail them out when fundamental ownership and accountability of their department would solve the nontechnical production issues they have. Continuous improvement (lean six sigma) is not strong. Visible applications and manufacturing engagement is needed to improve.
Advice to Management
Strengthen your staff to become effective leaders and followers. Manage your managers and supervisors. Need to drive change at an accelerated pace. There are so many opportunities for improvement and growing the business. Just because you have the higher bonuses in the company doesn't mean you can sit back and watch.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Precision Castparts in October 2015.
Had an on campus interview. The interview was very conversational and felt very relaxed, like they just wanted to get to know you. Most of the questions were theoretical behavioral questions. After each question, they would sort of explain why that question mattered to their company.
