There are no, or very guards on power equipment. Very hard to trust benefit of an accident
Support from management
Pretty much one sided. Management rarely utilizes the team's experience. Could use more time directly involved with the welding process.
Freedom to work independently
Overtime was not permitted
There were no company meetings while I was employed here. This would have been a very big help, and would be easy to start.
I worked well with their one female on the shop floor. She was fired for being late to work?
Attitude towards older colleagues
I was an older worker, and was hired. This is a very good part of the company. There were no long term employees, as most had been replaced.
Not possible at IBW
Overall compensation for your work
Saleries are very low, but we're always paid on time. There were no current benefits for new hires.
Office / Work Environment
Most equipment was very old & out of date. Guards were nonexistent. This is a very dangerous place to work. OSHA was never in, and would have shut down this business if they ever did come for a routine inspection.
The building had few if any climate control devices.
Personally I was never given vacation time. Company was not open during holidays.
There products were some of the best in the industry. Employees were never allowed to help with instructions or training, so very little feedback from end customer
Non existent. This company could use a lot of improvement in this area.
Company is built from very old wood structure factory. Ground floor was very handicap accessible, but not the restroom. Access to the upper office was only through 19 stairs, and couldn't accommodate handicap personal
Hard to answer this one. There were no guards in place on any power tools. OSHA would have a field day here. Safety equipment was available, but was discouraged from wearing as it interferes with polishing
Software was 15 years old.
This adds to workload when trying to complete a task on time. Newer software would help this company emensly
Inclusive / Diverse
Most of the product line came from a catalog from 30 years ago, not much in the area of diversity
Suggestions for improvement
- Bring in OSHA to make suggestions, and follow through with them.
