    Pros

    Great company, love the atmosphere and the maintenance team, teamwork is high. Highly advanced machinery. Good pay, challenging work everyday

    Cons

    Communication devices we use are so outdated and do not work when you need them too. CMMS could use a refresher too in every area

    Machinery from 1970-2020- lots to learn, a new challenge everyday. Some are willing to share their knowledge, not all.

    Aug 19, 2020 - Maintenance Technician in Indianapolis, IN

    Pros

    Challenging role, you are expected to fix machinery, building maintenance, CMMS, order parts, maintain relationships with vendors, minor fab, and think on the run while executing. When parts were needed, mgmt gave the thumbs up, Major had no problems spending money to ensure equipment was running and used quality vendors and equipment. Great people to work with, machinist would standby during casualties to assist where they could. Mgmt worked with employees during Covid pandemic. Training was getting much better as I was leaving. Fast paced, 8-10 hour shift flew by due to constant moving, always changing mindsets due to planned and unplanned maintenance. Sky is the limit at Major, plenty of team leaders that promoted from within. Maintenance Manager was a 30+ year employee. Controls Engineer has been there almost as long. I left due to an opportunity I had to further my professional goals in controls. Again, the people who worked here were great! I enjoyed walking into the plants everyday, machinists, welders, fab and maintenance techs had great relationships, joked around and looked for solutions for problems.

    Cons

    There were some expectation management issues. Times where you didn't know exactly who you were working for, which priorities to execute due to that. I feel in some instances there was a big separation between management and workers. Not in all departments, but some. I feel trust was an issue between mgmt and techs. I feel that management's job is to clear obstacles for their department. A tech shouldn't have to explain faults to 3-4 different managers while troubleshooting and trying to get gear back online. There was no documented training program to bring on new employees. A few techs would bend over backwards to explain processes of unfamiliar equipment, others would watch you fail after asking for help.
