    I have been working at Ryobi Die Casting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Steady work. All the overtime that you would or would not want. Knowledgeable employees. Get all major holidays off with good benefits

    Cons

    The pay could be a lot better. One of the lowest paid skilled trade jobs that you will find. Management only cares about profits and not employees

    I worked at Ryobi Die Casting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Well-rounded training. Workers are trained in troubleshooting, forklift operation, die setup and changes, and more.

    Cons

    First, overtime is abundant. Second, I worked here and went on orders for the military (~2 weeks). Upon return, all paperwork was sent to HR. A few weeks later, I was walked out because they never filed the paperwork. Was told I would be called back to work once it was filed, but was never called. Took my badge, making it impossible to speak with supervisors about coming back.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you're doing your own job, not just watching us do ours. Don't promise something and go behind your word because your cowardice is stronger than your professionalism.
