Apex is one of the last union manufacturing plants in the Dayton area. I enjoyed my time there. Apex pays well and has great benefits. After 1 year you get 40 hours of vacation and 80 hours after 3 years.

Company has all the personal benefits and intends to do the right things. There is the opportunity to learn and progress but under extreme internal and personal competitiveness. Employees are encouraged to engage not only with all company activities but also outside service to the community.

Cutthroat company management sucks they really try to help to get forward but it's all a shade management they really don't know what they're doing or they're just bad would recommend no one to go there not unless they really needed a job
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – September 19, 2017
Part of the Motor Vehicle Industry Division, so worked auto plants. They have a good product in a tough, competitive market. Plenty of knowledgeable people. A lot of freedom to do what it takes to get the job done.
Compensation, freedom, good people and product
Owned by Capital Management company so no investment in company, other divisions can be difficult to work with
Account Development Manager, National Accounts (Current Employee) – Sparks, MD – August 30, 2017
Work Life Balance is top notch if you get to work in the field. The only thing Apex is lacking is employees. Many basic needs for customers get pushed aside due to not enough man power. Employees tend to take on many roles and wear many hats. Overall a good place to work. Upper Management could also use an adjustment.
Lead Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Apex, NC – August 10, 2017
Work is very steady, working with power tools and hand tools. Tools has a high demand so you never have to worry about work slowing down. Management has its ups and downs but for the most part the staff is very reasonable. Benefits are offered for permanent employees and incentives are offered to temp employees.
On my typical day at work, I always encountered with different products and ii had to mix the right chemical for the products. The hardest part of the job was when the machine was broken down and i had to fix it. sometimes it would take a whole day. the most enjoyable part of the job was talking to people after work.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, AR – July 23, 2017
The compensation is not good for the work load. Its very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The hardest part of the job was lifting the toolboxes and working a lot of days back to back. Management were not that supportive at times.
dysfunctional management in daily operation of plant. having a hard time filling staff positions and factory positions, poor environment to work in daily. very hot in summer, cold in winter. overall morale is very low. current machining position is good, with a good team to work with, as in the operators on each shift work together to accomplish weekly tasks and orders.
MACHINE OPERATOR (Former Employee) – York, PA – July 2, 2017
Direction and production scheduling were a nightmare. Lack of any type of coordination of different departments was almost none existent.AS a machine operator,I did my own set ups and sharpen my own tooling.For the most part co workers were friendly. The vacation and health benefits were good.
