    I worked at RBC Bearings as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great managers, helpful atmosphere. Everyone seemed to care that I have everything I needed for my analysis. Would work there again in a management position.

    Cons

    Outdated software for production planning, difficult to export past reports from database.
    Besides those two things everything was good.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in some more recent software. Doesn't have to be SAP but it should at least allow to export reports into excel directly. Keep up the friendly and supportive spirit!

    I worked at RBC Bearings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    90% of the people that work here are amazing professionals. Everyone seems willing to work hard for each other and there is little fear of management. From the CEO to the floor managers, everyone seems to realize their employees are their most valuable asset.

    Cons

    Open management positions are frequently filled from outside the company. Promotions from within are not necessarily met with appropriate compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Higher salaries required to retain top talent.

    Pros

    Lot's of room for growth within the company. They like to bump people up the ladder fairly quickly if you show the right initiative.

    Cons

    At my division they wouldn't hire another CNC programmer to take over when they let the last one go, so me and a couple other engineers had to take over the role, which put a lot of the shop floor guys in a bad mood because that was a position they would like to have been considered for.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get the product line managers to get more production done during the first half of the month, so that the second half isn't so hectic.

    I have been working at RBC Bearings full-time

    Pros

    They have the best health insurance package anywhere that I have seen. Overall great benefits (health, dental, vision)

    Cons

    They do not provide a very good 401k match. I would say lowest that I have seen or know of.
