"It’ll do in a pinch. "
Former EmployeeDie Cast Engineer
Often lied to employees regarding overtime. Outsourced higher paying jobs instead of using the bidding process to advance current employees. Pay is decent though. Good work environment and the people there are friendly but overall I wouldn’t suggest.
