    Former Employee - Assembly Line Worker in Bloomingdale, IL
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at PCTEL full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent paycheck, constantly busy, overtime, no uniforms, lockers provided, good Christmas luncheons, Bonus checks at the end of the year.

    Cons

    No one understands anything written or spoken in the American language. Most employees came from another country. Group leader is not friendly, doesn’t know how to manage the line she runs properly and has a terrible way of talking to people and to her boss. Many people are jealous of others and watch what other people are doing when they should be focused on their own work. Cheating on yearly safety training tests ( the ones from different countries) and very rude and nosey coworkers who want to know everything in your personal life. Too much gossiping and lying.
