Workplace Safety

They trained me one on one to run a cnc torch plasma table for about a week and a half and then pretty much only answered questions as needed. I thought it would be much more inclusive and refined training procedures. They focused on blueprints more than my machine. I felt very unsure of my skills the entire eleven month's I had the job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Try caring about people and not treating business like we are just numbers. Stop patting yourselves on the back so much and get out on the floor and help the guys that need it. They would try harder if you did. Never lay off people in the way Cat does it is a bad system and people are not going to come work for you for any amount of money if they are afraid they won't have a job in two weeks. I personally would not push a broom all day for a hundred dollars an hour for Cat or Parson's. There is a good chance it won't cover the money lost when you get canned.

What I like about the company

Other than the guy who was my lead-man I did not like anything about this job. If it were not for him I would have been clueless as to how to perform the tasks required of me. He was very understanding of the hardship of the machine I was running.

What I dislike about the company

Parson's is very closely connected to Caterpillar. When Cat lays off people so does Parson's. I was part of the layoffs but that wasn't the worst part. The worst part about it was that a few weeks after laying me off they called me at 3:30 in the afternoon to return for two days starting the next morning at 7AM. There was no notice at all and I could not get a baby sitter in time. I informed them that I could not be there that next day and they told me it was no problem and they would call me back soon. A week later I got two letters in the mail. One was unemployment letting me know they were fighting my claim since I refused to come back to work when called. The other was from Parson's informing me I was terminated. I was almost bankrupted by this event.
