Experienced Mentors that will share their experience

“One of the things I enjoy about being a Model Maker at Tier ONE is taking an idea and making it reality. To produce the best product, you need a team that is willing to share their thoughts and are open to input. Being a mentor is very similar, you are taking someone’s career aspirations and trying to turn them into reality. To get the best product it is a group effort. Their questions make you think and, although I am there to guide the apprentices, their test of my knowledge helps keep me sharp as well. It feels good to give back to the profession I have enjoyed for so many years.”-J.L.

Apprentice Program

“The thing I enjoy most about the Apprentice program at Tier ONE is the chance to work in all areas within the shop (Milling, Lathe, Mill Turn, Swiss, Model Shop, Assembly, etc….). The mentors, and general willingness of all to help and to share knowledge, have created a true learning environment and make it an enjoyable place to work.”-A.D.

Already experienced but desire to keep learning

“I find working as the Maintenance Mechanic at Tier ONE rewarding primarily due to the trust and respect they show for my views and opinions. I can prioritize my day for the most part, although priorities can change. We work together to construct the best solution. I also like the ‘together by choice’ aspect of Tier ONE. I work with a lot of different people and although personalities may vary greatly we are all here with the same objective at the end of the day.”-R.S.

Is the Tier ONE Experience right for you? We are not a fit for everyone.

When we founded the company over 15 years ago the culture of the organization was very important to us. Therefore we created the Tier ONE Experience (5 Key Principals we try to live by).

  • 1. Together by Choice – We spend too much time together to not get along with the people we work with. Employment should be a fit for both the employer and the employee.
  • 2. Being the Best – Looking for life long learners with a thirst for knowledge and an open mind. In order to maintain your competitiveness, you must actively improve your skills.
  • 3. Continuous Improvement – Always looking for a better way. Our employees are the key to our success, if we hold them back from sharing ideas then we have no chance.
  • 4. Walk the Talk – Accountability, making commitments and then keeping them. Taking personal responsibility for your work.
  • 5. Customer Peace of Mind – Customer focused environment.
