Support from management
The schedule changes so often that it makes planning more difficult than is necessary. You will get setup to do one job and sometimes not even a day later you are told to tear it down and start on something else instead. Inventory control is a huge problem as well. There are surprise shortages all the time.
Production employees work well together for the most part, but it is difficult to make management understand what is going on.
Freedom to work independently
The is an excessive amount of micro-managing from managers that don't have experience doing the job that they are micro-managing.
There are weekly meetings to go over what is going on.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Production employees are all really close. That is the highlight of the position.
Asa production employee, even if you get a low level promotion, which is rare, it is unlikely that you will get much of an increase in pay, and you will still be treated as a low level production worker.
Overall compensation for your work
Much lower than average. Most start around $10 an hour, and the long term employees make around $12 after 5 years.
Overtime is mandated without regard for anything that a person may have planned.
As long as you show up, odds are you will be there as long as you want to be.
Work instructions are very clear. However, there is a bit of an art to soldering and rework. But if you are familiar with the industry, then you will know exactly what I mean.
Suggestions for improvement
- Get a hold of inventory and trust your employees to do their job. They know it better than you probably do. Be willing to spend the money to keep the employees that you have.
What I like about the company
There are a really good group of people on the floor actually doing the work. Trust them to do the right things.
What I dislike about the company
Management doesn't know how little that they understand and doesn't listen to those that do.
