- Accurate Brazing24.Oct 2018
Accurate Brazing (AB) looks out for its employees; however, the main objective is to support its customers and to take care of their needs. They are the reason we have purpose in the job place. Making your customers happy leads to the "Bread and Butter" that feeds you!
Support from management
Depending on the uniqueness of individual situations, management tended to be very supportive.
For the most part, I found that the majority of my coworkers were willing to assist others in a time of need.
Freedom to work independently
Accurate Brazing is very good about trusting the employees to work independently or within a team atmosphere without micromanaging.
I find that "Communication" is an important factor that gets overlooked in many situations. If communication is not shared properly or not shared at all, then this tends to start the process of a "breakdown" in the system.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I have found that overall, the company and former coworkers had a positive/neutral attitude towards older colleagues. And, if something needed to be addressed with an older colleague (positive or negative), they would have been dealt with just as fairly/equally as anyone else would have been.
I feel that this is an area that will get better as the company continues to grow.
Overall compensation for your work
Office / Work Environment
In general, the office/work environment was comfortable and easy to work in.
Even though chemicals, gases, etc. are used within the workplace, steps are taken by following OSHA guidelines, which aids in making it a more environmentally friendly atmosphere.
Accurate Brazing encourages its employees to maintain a healthy balance between ones personal life and their work life. However, because AB is a small company and cross training is limited, there have been rare occasions in accommodating that balance.
Accurate Brazing has the unique expertise, capacity and equipment to support the needs of its customers.
The company provided continued job security even though there had been a recent decline within the industry.
Although there was handicap parking available along with ramps, I feel that height availability regarding countertops for a wheelchair-bound person could be a potential area for improvement.
Identifying safety labels and signs are used within the workplace to warn others of a potential hazard. Also, as stated above, steps are in place to follow OSHA guidelines regarding safety.
I loved that my job kept me challenged by knowing that there was plenty of work to keep me busy on a day-to-day basis. And, when gaining new customers from different walks of life, it would be a challenging process by having to learn their specific requirements.
Inclusive / Diverse
Accurate Brazing tends to be inclusive of hiring a variety of people; however, one might perceive that the treatment/handling of certain people would be handled totally different than others.
Suggestions for improvement
- Communication and more consideration on including specific personnel when decisions are being made that can potentially affect a role that one plays within their assigned job.
What I like about the company
The interaction that is available to both internal as well as external customers.
What I dislike about the company
1) Even though the company offers a 401K plan, the company does not contribute anything; 2) there is not a Human Resources department should one feel that something needs to be addressed.
