    Pros

    Great pay for well testers. Did pay for travel. They pay for your lodging if your in a hotel or staying on location.

    Cons

    Not much of a family life if you live outside of state, but that's a part of it. They give easy jobs to lazy employees.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the time they promote friends.

    Pros

    If you are a member (or somehow related) to the Barlow Family life is good. If not, you are less than nothing.

    There is not enough space here to list them all. If you are considering working here, please reconsider.

    Advice to Management

    Since I know all advice is rejected off hand, there is little point in completing this section.

    Pros

    The pay is decent at start. Everyone is friendly. Most positions almost never require working on the weekends. Good place to get your foot in the door for a welding or machining career.

    Cons

    Most advancements go to family or friends of a handful of management employees. Most managers have not earned, nor deserve their positions. Low pay increases without advancing to another position (Max of 4 percent yearly based on biased performance reviews). Childish politics. No bonuses except for upper level management.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to those who are working, not those who do nothing all day except sit in your office shooting the breeze and pretending to be your friend in hopes of advancement (seems to work for them though).
