Development Team Member (Former Employee) says"A typical day at work included doing no more and no less than the single project you were assigned during your first week there. There is no change in your work responsibilities nor any room for growth or change."
Quality Inspector/CMM Programmer (Current Employee) says"A typical day at work would be programming or correction of older programs for Medical & Poultry industry assembly products. I learned what mistakes should not be made on drawings and machining processes from Bettcher Industries. Management at Bettcher was poor at best. Too many meetings and no accountability. The scrap rate is the worst I've ever seen in 13 years. The workplace culture was average to above average. My coworkers were kind. The hardest part of the job was the constant meetings and reviewing prints and methods with Manufacturing and Design Engineers, specifically for incorrect drawing methods. The most enjoyable part of the job was how kind the employees were everyday.Employee Owned, Benefits, Salary, Work HoursInexperience, Management, Location"
