The owner and upper management seemed to be concerned about their workers.
Middle management had a get it done or else/ your lucky to have a job attitude
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.
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.
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.
