Ever Heard Of Peterson Cartridge Company?
« on: February 02, 2016, 05:47:32 PM »
Like the title says, has anyone here ever heard of or have any experience with Peterson Cartridge Company. They looks like a small outfit that manufactures match-grade brass rifle casings for handloaders.

    Figured as much. They're local to me and are posting on the various employment websites that they're looking for a technical writer, but I'd never heard of them before and all a Google Search turned up was their website, their parent company's website (looks to be a family-owned subsidiary) and numerous job postings for pretty much every position imaginable, and that's it. No reviews, no interviews, no press releases, no nothing. Guess I'll be looking elsewhere for work.

    Uh, why?  If they are hiring a position in your specialty, apply for it!  It may not be your life-long dream job, but it will be a job in the firearms industry.  If nothing else, a good point on your resume.

    I will be honest, the local job market has dried up big time.  Low oil prices are nice when you go to fill up, but they suck when your job was tied to the industry.  We just hired a new employee, and we had nine calls for interviews for one low-skill position.  A full six of those guys, including the one who was hired, were under 30.  All of them were out of work from the gas well industry, either directly or indirectly.  My point...  Chase any opportunity to use your training, and especially if it is a gun-related job.

    For another local gun manufacturer, try E.R. Shaw barrels, in Bridgeville.  I drove past their retail store just this morning.

    I'm looking all over for work, not just locally and/or the firearms industry. It just strikes me as odd that I cannot find any outside information whatsoever about a company that claims to be well-established and well-respected.

    I agree with Kaso here. Get a job and gain some cash money experience. It's in a cool field and every baby business has to start somewhere. It might be an exceptional opportunity with a humble exterior or, if worst case scenario, you find it boring and say "fluff it" and leave.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

    Try calling them up?  If they are indeed hiring, there will probably be an interview, and a job interview is a two-way thing.  You are under no obligation to commit, but you may find out the good reason for their lack of reputation.  Or you may not, but how are you going to know without asking?

    Once again, though, it is a job.  Jobs are not as plentiful as they were 6-12 months ago.  If they are hiring, and they like you, (and if you don't have something better) I would snap it up.

    I'm more concerned with them being a legitimate company rather than it being a "boring" or "unglamorous" job. I've stumbled across enough obvious fly-by-night/scam outfits during my search to make me skeptical of an organization that I can't turn up any outside info on.

    Fair enough.  If you run into any such local companies in the gun industry, be sure to let me know.

    They have a decent looking website, but it doesn't do much other than give biographies and definitions.

    Ah, but when you get to the "Our Process" tab, now it's getting somewhere.  Under "Drawing Brass" there's pretty pictures of the processes.  In a big room with expensive equipment.  And if you look carefully, you can see that those first two photos have watermarks:  copywrite by Aurubis.  Not a good thing.  Stole somebody else's photos.  They do say "Photo courtesy of Aurubis", but did they really ask permission first?

    If you can't see the machinery during an interview, it probably doesn't exist.  Likewise if the building isn't big enough to hold it.

    Also, a search of the PA corporation division records indicates that they were organized 4/21/14 as a limited liability company.  Other than that, not much.
