    Pros

    This employer was close to my home and I like that they were always upgrading and adding new equipment and capabilities to their corporation .

    Cons

    Just corporation didn't have enough training provided to the employees to keep up with the demands of our vendors and our customers so they over hired and they payed off alot without any regard for their employees .

    Advice to Management

    The management knew little about what they were doing and less about Handling employees with their needs. It was a terrible place to work for anyone that wanted to do good job .

    I worked at HITCO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a good benefit packages, ok 401k. Latest technology from an engineering and operations standpoint. Overall a good company.

    Cons

    Unable to schedule production lines consistently. Much emphasis is on meeting schedule demands over good training of the operators, which can lead to a breakdown of quality.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus on getting the operators trained regularly and let them stay in a work cell area long enough for them to learn something.

    Great overtime for some extra cash and great to place to get some experience.

    Horrible place to work, bad communication with other shifts employees and management. Shows alot of favoritism putting people in a position which they dont qualify or have the skills or experience in. No career opportunity you might get lucky maybe.

    Advice to Management

    Stop down graded people infront of everyone and talk to that individual 1 on 1 and if someone messes up call a meeting into preventing the problem.
