decent place to work in manufacturing
Good place to work, health and safety is high, quality is high, seem to end up being stuck doing the same job day in day out, there isnt alot of variety but its manufacturing so its kind of expected, Money is alright if your on shift, but pretty poor on day rate.

Unprofessional
My personal experience of Eaton is bad. I was underpaid for the unique skill set I had there and to jump through the hoops to get my salary increased took an eternity even then what they offered me wasn't anywhere near enough. My advice if you do want a job here make sure you negotiate a salary you will be happy with for a LONG time as increases are few and far between. I went for an internal interview and never heard anything back until i found that someone else had got the job. Management is poor although towards the end of my time there it was improving due to some changes IE the old site manager had moved on. The most enjoyable part of the job was my work colleagues they were the main reason i stayed there for 5 years.

Demanding environment
Poor senior management in a union dominated environment which ultimately leaves middle management in a very difficult position and results in a high turnover of staff.

V. Good
The working day at Eaton begins with morning meetings of the various manufacturing teams.
In general the culture is safety and quality driven, with a fairly relaxed atmosphere.

Nice place to work
Overall this is a nice place to work considering the job. The hours are good, people are very friendly, team leaders are friendly and helpful. Relaxed atmosphere, can be stressful but quite laid back overall. Only downside is the pay is poor.

Depressing
Hated it. Tedious, boring, More chiefs than indians. Worst job I ever had. Too many people related to managers, getting all the decent jobs, or chances of promotion. Best part of the job was going home.

Eaton is a good company
Just be yourself no need to panic because the management is very professional. They always treats people with respect. As long you have experience and knowledge for the job you are seeking to get, it won't be a problem at all.
