Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Company in general is alright. Group leaders are fairly decent. No time clocks, employees keep
their own time, then verified by supervisor.

g

Cons

Group leaders that I had ,did not have any knowledge of machinery that I had to operate. Company hires non experience people to do a skilled trade, without any knowledge of math,blueprint reading. Also not understanding the English language or speaking it. finally not having any knowledge of any measuring instruments that is required to perform the job.

Advice to Management

Your management needs to look at the people you have that have group leader positions. You will find many of them are not qualified to do what is required. Hire people that are qualified to do skill work.
