    Pros

    supplied weld gear
    diverse
    year round work

    Cons

    Working here is like being given a bowl of broth and having to use a fork to eat it.
    Currently in Redmond building 7 they are ramping up production to levels that have never been tested. This is basically being unloaded onto an understaffed production crew and managements idea of fixing it is throwing untrained/unskilled new hires into spots that take weeks to train into the day of ramp ups causing people to go about 2 weeks then walk right out to a different job. This place is AN APSOLUTE NIGHTMARE right now. The air quality has been basically toxic for over a year and a half and when the CEO of terex came for the 2018 walkthrough he wouldn't even walk through the air that we have been forced to breath. Basically whenever the ramp ups happen you can expect to see your 45 minute job turn into 25 minutes on paper and management just says that's the way she goes good luck to ya mate. FYI the medical benefits are absolute garbage if you do decide to work here, I have personally had my card declined for vision & medical when I have tried using it.

    Advice to Management

    start a nightshift because %75 of the welders are currently looking for work elsewhere

    Pros

    good benefits, hours were great

    They do not respect or appreciate people who have worked for years for them. They would rather hire newbies at low salary

    Advice to Management

    for your benefit keep the people who have been loyal to you
