    I worked at Blanchard Machinery full-time

    Pros

    Hard working technicians, proud employees and encouragement for advancement.

    Cons

    Some of upper management out of touch with day to day operations.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to go out and talk to technicians and keep up with them as individuals, not just employees.

    I have been working at Blanchard Machinery full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the techs that work there are great and will help.

    Cons

    No pay increases, management will not listen to the techs. Not willing to send certain departments to training.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and you won't have to worry about making money. A happy employee won't mind going the extra mile if they know they will be taken care of.

    Pros

    There is not a whole lot other than just having a place to go every day.

    Cons

    No pay increases management out of touch & don't care. Talking with other former employees
    that have come & gone said that they were disappointed that thier expectations were much higher coming in.

    Advice to Management

    work on trying to retain the few experienced employees you have left

    I worked at Blanchard Machinery as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co workers extremely nice.
    CEO takes very good care of employees
    Everyone seems to be in overall good mood
    Its always a nice experience when Joe walks around to check on everyone
    Safety is a very important part of the day to day principles as it should be

    Cons

    It gets really hot outside during the summers there.
    Somedays it would get really busy in all departments so it was not possible to get assistance at some points
    I was nto used to making a 30 minute drive to work to West Columbia but got used to it

    Advice to Management

    Everything was great when I was there. No complaints.
