It was a great place to work. Our foremans were very knowledgeable
Whether I was working on mechanical assemblies or wiring machines, it seems like we had new and interesting jobs quite often. I learned quite a lot about hydraulic, pneumatic, and mechanical assembly. Management at our plant were very capable, but the last machine that was engineered as state of the art from Toledo Engineering was a mess. It was ultimately how I lost my job, because they decided to buy our machines from another vendor.
As far as co-workers, we had the usual amount of workers who were difficult and gave people a hard time, but most of our guys were a good lot to work with.
The hardest part of the job for me was being bent over a box for 12 hours when we were doing work in section boxes.
The most enjoyable part of the job was having a good machine run in, and being ahead of schedule.
Great benefits, paid vacation and holidays and schooling.
