Perhaps you were not that skilled. I am the lead in our metal spinning department at our Shakopee location. In my department and in others, we place a very high standard on the quality of our product. These products still need to be produced in an efficient and timely manner, that is how a business makes a profit. Unfortunately some individuals do not have the dual requirements of technical skill and efficacy of work to handle the environment of JE Earll. From an employees standpoint I have never worked for a better organization. They have been extremely fair with me even when they haven't needed to be. I have negotiated satisfying wage increases and when I have had personal isssues they stood behind me. We have a team of employees at our Shakopee location whose attention to detail is unparalleled. We produce some very complex parts in machining, heavy sheet metal forming, and my department metal spinning. Our lead welder, as anyone who has seen his work will attest to, is one of the best in the business. This is a great company to work for and a great company to be a customer of.
