Good learning experience

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good people to work with. Management out of touch as far machining goes. Especially the difficult to machine exotic materials like hastelloy or inconel. Cross training on other machines and other areas like paint booth and powder coating is a good thing.


Bonus every quarter, betos on Saturdays


Managers that don't understand machining actually consumes time

Fast paced, with good local supervision.

The work is very fast paced. Personally I love the work, and there is some good people in the QRC in Porth Arthur. Management was really good on site, but upper management was pathetic. Guys can't get raises, they can't move up, you are stuck where you hired in at. But other than that, it's overall not a horrible place to work

Not a place to advance your skills

Most Managers only care about themselves. Once put by not a place, the only advancement is if you know someone. Years of service meaning nothing and loyalty is nil. Benefits are great but at times it seems not to be worth the headache. Some in charge of production have never operated a machine in their live’s.

Good culture

Best place to work as a machinist period. Worked at many other shops, wasn't a fan of swing shifts or working steady weekends, here you have a steady shift.

Stay away

This is one you dont want,upper management doesn't have a clue what is going on.they laid off some of us with 20 plus years experience, only to hire new people that has to be trained. They don't care about your opinions or even you as a person.The good old boys club is alive and well. The HR dept. Was absolutely useless anytime you had a question the a swer would be call 1 800 FLOWSERVE. Why even have an hr dept.


Decent pay


Short breaks, hr is a joke and upper management is clueless

Share your experience to help others


No method to the madness. You are expected to put Flowserve 1st at all times. Good for a single individual that wants to work away their days or has no life.


Job stability


Garbage castings

Good place to work. Needs to focus on Culture & Training Curriculum.

OverallNeeds a more structured training program, and clear set of goals. A training curriculum would go a long way toward giving new and inexperienced trainees a clear path to success. However; I find this is a challenge most anywhere you work. The pay and benefits were good. Overall, the company needs a stronger emphasis on promoting a culture of acceptance, and providing a clear orientation to employee training and development programs. The basic structure is there, however; it is very under utilised.

A World wide pump manufacturer.

This factory has had multiple owners and changes over 37 years. Flowserve's changes have both positive and negative affects depending on your monetary point of view.


Reasonable health care. and Makes the best pumps in the world. Maintains a great break room.


Not a great opportunity for long term employment and advancement.

Nice equipment,clean, decent pay

A good job with nice equipment that is micro managed to the point it ruins everything. Promotions are done by who you know and who's friend you are, not by experience or hard work. Leading to incompetent people in lead positions not knowing the capabilities of equipment and people, leading to the higher skilled people leaving. Management takes no criticism in any way without retaliating.

productive fast paced

If you enjoy working on something one minute and the next being ripped away from it to work extra hard/fast at something else, this is your place! Other than that you have job security and some decent co-workers.


some good co-workers

good work environment, free dining in plant

I worked in this company and it was a good work environment ... then the company moved to another location, the salary was very good.The only factor that caused my resignation from the job was that they only valued those who came to talk with the supervisor and not the one who only worked in his position when this man arrived at the company.


all the benefits excellent


It was run by poorly trained staff

It was not the worst place to work

My day was going thru my pile of blueprints and making parts based on their due date. I learned various machines and processes. It did have a negative work culture but I'm a positive person so it didn't really bother me. The hardest part was just the very short dead lines which resulted in a lot of overtime. Which isn't the worst thing.

Good coworkers bad managers

Don't waste your time. HR is useless. They pay their employees peanuts. The company wants everything for nothing and they will lied to you so get everything in writing.


8 hour shift


managers and HR

the culture here needs a complete purging

find somewhere else to work, life is too short! If you like to polish rear ends this is the place for you. Skills mean nothing and the raises are meaningless. there was always some excuse to stop your bonus


it paid the bills


too many to list

Productive and metrics-focused company

As a machinist at Flowserve, the emphasis is on OTD, quality, and safety. The work is consistent and flows well through the shop. I enjoyed my time at Flowserve.
