Great work enviroment.
Associate (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OH 45417November 6, 2017
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.

Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 3, 2017
Closed the plant, what do you think? Worked very long hours and great pay. The team was great, but upper leaders moved operations out of state and left us out in the cold.

VP Finance Global Operations (Former Employee) –  Huntersville, NCSeptember 27, 2017
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.

Great Work Life Balance
Account Development Manager, National Accounts (Current Employee) –  Sparks, MDAugust 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.
Pros
work life balance
Cons
upper management

Unstable
Assembly Lead (Former Employee) –  Sumter, SCAugust 24, 2017
The staff that I interacted with were great people. I got laid off after just 2 years of work and was forced back on the job market. I think the employment there is very unstable.

Steady Work
Lead Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) –  Apex, NCAugust 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.

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Garland, TXJuly 25, 2017
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.
Pros
healthcare, vacation and holidays paid

short break

Still stuck in 20th Century
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  Apex, NCJune 20, 2017
Unfortunately the company isn't progressive. There is no room for advancement unless you're one of the chosen few and the facility conditions are old and out dated.
