Hard work and a very good company to work for.
Production Associate (Former Employee) –  Daleville, VAApril 12, 2016
A lot of hard work and heavy lifting. I had a excellent work partner and other co workers were always willing to lend a hand when needed. The best part of the job was the people because when work close to your co workers 8 to 12 hours a day you begin to feel like a family.
Pros
excellant benefits, safe clean work environment, the company celebrated goals that the workers accomplished
Cons
needed better job securtiy

Good job but the management could be improved
Welder (Current Employee) –  Saint Joseph, MODecember 23, 2015
The job itself is great, great pay and once you have your job down it is pretty manageable. The supervisors and group leaders are about the laziest and most immature Ive worked for. Giving others slack off time during the night and promoting friends instead of the workers that actually deserve the job is common practice. Open door policy sounds great but does nothing to solve any problems because the next higher up will not listen to your issues with a supervisor if he is friends with said supervisor.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Horrible management

Not enough to keep people employed
Title- Utility Worker (Former Employee) –  Saint Joseph, MONovember 10, 2015
Great company but just not enough opportunity and if you building, doesn't have enough work they just let you go instead of seeing if you may fit some where else in the company. They use temp service so I understand but still needs to be equal opportunity employer.
Pros
easy going place
Cons
no chance for temp to be hired full time long process through home office for being hired

Great place to work. However, working in the cold and hot temperatures is not always fun but the pay made up for that. Always room for advancement and supervisors were awesome to work for.

Overall pretty good place to work
Production Assembler (Current Employee) –  Elizabethtown, KYJuly 22, 2015
This an overall pretty good place to work, although upper management has become I would say, too caught up on adding more and more business and dismissing an efficient amount of time to build the trucks along with rushing and paper pushing qualityat which goes to building our "zero defect" High Quality built trucks... Great job just a few kinks that need to be smoothed out...
Pros
great pay, off majority of weekends, great pay, opportunity to move up and much more
Cons
need more employee accountability
