Alex Rawls, Machinist
Servotronics is an excellent company with great people, the Supervisors are great, and the Shop Manager is excellent. The Machine Shop at Servotronics is different than shops in other companies. We are an extremely high precision shop, our focus is complex and very tight tolerances (.0002) parts. Our shop is “Highly Skilled” and definitely not a “Slop Shop”. If you are skilled, Please join our team!!! Our people are friendly, knowledgeable, and want to see everyone succeed. Our supervision and shop managers are highly skilled Master Machinists, who are also great people. Everyone is easy to talk to, friendly, helpful which makes a great support system. Currently Servotronics INC. offers health plan options that are, PPO, High Deductible. They provide Holiday parties for employees for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are a very normal company with UPS and DOWNS like you might find anywhere else, but my opinion we have more UPS than any Downs. Servotronics is a great place to work and I am “Proud to work here”.
Erica Marks, Jr. Planner
Since I started at Servotronics a little over a year ago, I have noticed many changes. First off at the beginning of my first year morale was low. Even with the low morale that did not really scare me away. This is a job where there will always be someone who is not happy. In my first year here I have received a promotion and raises. I can say it did not come easy. I have learned three different positions in the company. I came in to work early, I stayed at work late, worked Saturdays. I take pride in my work and any extra efforts I can give, I believe in the saying “You get out what You put in”. Which is why I was happy with the fact the company noticed my hard work and dedication, enough to give me a promotion. Past companies I have worked for will make you seek promotions and go through interviews for them. Employees of Servotronics can see what others are getting paid around Buffalo. It caused frustration over pay and work load. I do believe the company took a step in the right direction. They did not just give everyone raises. They created Tiers for employees, looked into how long employees have been here, realizing their Veteran employees deserved more than workers just starting out. They need to continue this to keep their Veteran employees happy and willing to train new workers. Not sure if it was done in the past but the company has supplied lunch for the entire building for Holidays and if we had a good month. I think this goes a long way to show appreciation for the workers. Also for the Holiday season they gave away gifts and supplied Gift Cards to local Grocery Stores. I do have to say even though morale about pay and work load may be low. Everyone still seems very nice, and greet you with sincere smiles and greetings. Doors are held for people, and there usually seems to be a helping hand everywhere you go.
Jeremy Blodgett, Junior Buyer
I have been with Servotronics for 3 years, during my time here I’ve lead several successful projects that earned me a promotion from our Machine Shop floor to our Purchasing Department. Servotronics Inc. is a place I want to come to every day because my work is interesting and challenging; my co-workers are friendly and professional and I feel rewarded for the work that I have accomplished here.
Joe Katona, Manufacturing Engineer
When I joined the Servotronics team in 2015, I somewhat knew they made components used in the Aerospace industry. During my first week I found out, not only are these components used in Aerospace, they are physically located on the Aircraft themselves. This gives me a sense of pride, knowing my day to day responsibilities help develop components needed on multi-million dollar Aircraft used to transport thousands of people every day. When I tell people about my job it tends to catch them off guard. Their ears perk up and I can see the interest in their eyes while they ask me a dozen more questions. It is a flattering conversation to have and reminds me that the industry I’m in and the company I work for are very unique.
Servotronics has come a long way since I started, they have created a company mission, vision, and value statements, a 401K company match, invests in new equipment regularly, launched a third shift among other improvements. Some benefits of working at Servotronics includes Flu shot clinics, Holiday Luncheons, a golf league, monthly Safety training on various topics, discounted Erie County Fair tickets, and employee stock ownership plan along with many other perks
Some days working at Servotronics has its challenges just like any other company. But if you welcome new challenges, take pride in your work, consistently strive for the best, and are always looking for ways to improve, then Servotronics may be a good fit.
Larry Croff, Final Assembly Department Supervisor
Servotronics to me is more than just a job, or even a career. It’s a family that you grow with, and you are more than just a number. Over twenty-one years I have moved up the ranks to run my own Department. With hard work and dedication I know my advancement won’t stop there. I carry that through to the people I manage. Over the past seven years, 37% of my employees have been promoted within the company and 60% are still employed with the company today.
Lauren Reilly, Business Analyst
Working at Servotronics has been one of the greatest experiences I’ve had. I have been able to form lasting relationships, both professionally and personally, with everyone here. The people are what truly make Servotronics special.
Like any job/career/position, there are always challenges. These challenges are easily overcome when a person has a solid support system. This is something I’ve notice during my time at Servotronics. Wherever you turn, someone is there to help. I don’t think I’ve ever met more dedicated, hard-working and amazing people. Each person here has impacted my life and for that I’m sincerely grateful.
Servotronics has a fast-paced environment that offers numerous opportunities. Each day is different and provides exposure to something new. Applying and interviewing at Servotronics right out of college was nerve-racking, but it was the best decision I could have made. As soon as I walked through the front door, I felt welcome. I felt as though I would be able to make a difference. I felt that Servotronics would be able to make a difference in me.
Pat Biddlecom, Assembler I
I have been an employee at Servotronics for 8 ½ years, 6 full time and 2 ½ part time. It is a great opportunity to build parts for Airplanes. Even though I had few skills when I started, I was given so much assistance and the tools needed to do my job successfully. I definitely enjoy my job as a small parts assembler.
Servotronics is a small company that is growing more and more every day. Since I first started and until today, the company has taken many strides to improve itself. They have created a low-pressure working environment and mostly promote from within.
During the years whenever I may have had an issue, the company took sincere time to listen to my concerns. They have always been very flexible when I needed time off for personal reasons since I have an excellent record of being an employee dedicated to my job.
I like the fact that vacation time is accumulated beginning the first day of employment. It does not take a full year before you vacation days. The company has also made efforts to have competitive wages plus other incentives which was not the case when I started here at Servotronics. You have plenty of opportunity for overtime, a 401K program. They do have employee appreciation days with lunches, raffles and money put on our food credit account for cafeteria purchases.
I truly believe that if you take pride in your work and are a valuable employee, the company will value you as an important part of its business. After Six years of working full-time, I was ready to retire to watch my grandchildren. Servotronics offered me a part-time position. I am very happy I accepted because I was not yet 65 for Medicare, but could still get medical insurance through the company, while enjoying my job and working with other employees.
Phil Wozniak, Soldering Department
I started at Servotronics in 2012 as a Temporary worker, and now I am a Team Leader one step below a Supervisor. When I started, it was at a brand new bench in the Soldering Department of 3 personnel including me. Now it’s 8 on 3 shifts. No layoffs have occurred for the time I have been, here and the work has steadily grown. Now I train new hires and create training documents and have become a “GO-TO-GUY” for the engineers, as well as the other departments. The Company listens to our employee suggestions and actually instituted many of my suggestions. I like how Servotronics keeps changing for the better and the care enough to try. The better I do, the greater the reward, and that is a great incentive to be great at my job. I feel like I matter, you get back what you put in.
Tim Kubiak, Production Planner
I sincerely enjoy walking through the Servotronics doors each morning and priding myself on doing the best job possible. The support from Upper Management, Peers and fellow employees brings forth a Team and Family atmosphere which makes the job enjoyable.
As a Production Planner I am consistently challenged to exceed expectations and goals, and when achieved being rewarded with recognition. The goal of making Servotronics a top Aerospace supplier relies and is supported on, communicating honest answers, creating trust, teamwork, and leading to successful customer satisfaction.
Benefits of Servotronics:
- The Team passion and commitment to our Customers
- The willingness and friendliness of working together
- The opportunity to meet and interact with our Customers and create solid Business relationships
- Constantly being Challenged
As the day comes to and end and I prepare for the ride home, the sense of accomplishment and achievement overcomes the challenges and chaos the work day brought forth. Why this sense is so strong does not come from what I did, but what the Team accomplished. This is what drives me to opening the doors in the morning ready to accept new challenges and positive interactions with the Servotronics family.
