    Pros

    Great place to learn manufacturing and machining with some great team members and supervisors. Great job as a stepping stone.

    Poor communication, lack of knowledge and skill set from leadership and ownership the same leadership in need of development are unwilling to be developed. 30%+ turnover in the last year. United States operations is on life support. Outside the US is better.

    If you continue with the leadership team you have in place you will all be looking for new employment in the near future.

    I worked at Wescast Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Have uniforms so your clothing doesn't get ruined.

    Cons

    You have to pay for uniforms monthly The managers don't really help you with problems The floors are slippery because no one cleans up after themselves No cafeteria food/deli. You are not allowed to leave to get coffee/or food on your breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Get managers that care about the employees and don't just suck up to the higher management. Get cleaners in there that can properly clean the floors to prevent accidents.
