    I have been working at East Manufacturing full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They will put you in a weld school for a week to teach you. Good pay for new welders. Overtime is available if you want it.

    Cons

    Very low potential for raises. Union keeps topped out guys less than $2/hour above what I make with 8 months experience. Low potential to get a salaried position, too. Half a mile walk from the parking lot to the buildings. Sucks when it rains/is cold.

    Advice to Management

    When people come up to you and tell you "I can't stay late for the next x amount of time because x is going on in my life," don't move them to a station where they will be forced to stay. Terrible work/life balance. If people are moving or whatever else, they need time to do that, and telling you a certain period of time is more than reasonable.

    I worked at East Manufacturing full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    East is a company that truly demonstrates employee loyalty. They have ambitious technology goals, and the entire executive team is committed to achieving them. If you are a self-motivated IT worker or engineer, you can really make a difference here.

    Cons

    Limited upwards mobility. Remote work is allowed only in exceptional situations. Very few windows in office.

    Advice to Management

    Give people the option to work remotely.

    Pros

    Willing to train. Pretty good insurance.

    Cons

    Pretty low wages in my opinion. They work you hard. Mandatory overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and you won’t have to hire all the time.

  5. "Sales"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at East Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Benefits were really better than most places I've worked

    Cons

    The pay was much lower than average. Upper management lines their pockets while everyone else goes without a raise for years. Old school way of doing things. They refuse to catch up with the times. Employees aren't valued...just the almighty dollar. They want everything for nothing.

    I have been working at East Manufacturing full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The pay. Barely. Cons: walk a quarter mile from parking area. Dirtiest place I've ever worked Management seems to have a concern for keeping employees unhappy/ angry.

    Cons

    Lied to at orientation. Mismanaged. Endless unproductive 60 hr wks with management that that doesn't keep production streamlined but still scratches their heads when they don't get desired output. Their solution. Keep trying the same.
