Great People to work with most people with 15 plus years on job
DCM/Materials Manager (Former Employee), Kankakee, ILNovember 13, 2014
Pros: learned quite a bit from all the experienced employees specialy in purchasing
Cons: not to many the company over all was a good company to work
The work environment was good. However, plant manager was not very experienced and had a hard time understanding some technical concepts and created confusion with his work plans and material scheduels we had to change things to correct and not allow things to malfunction or run out we had a very strong team and worked well together every supervisor – more... that reported to me understood my expectations and we met and past all our goals for production and transportation. The hardes part of the job was to cope with a manager that didnt understand the over all process only manufacturing side.. most enjoyable were the people – less

Vice President Residential Flooring (Former Employee), Lancaster, PASeptember 3, 2014
Pros: high level of intelligent managers that ran the company.
Cons: new president looked at wall street as his customer rather than the distribution, employees and consumers.
Great corporation that allowed you to do your job and run your business like you owned the company. People were smart and loyal with a high degree of "success" motivation.
I was able to develop a product that was unique in the business and it is still on the market today, twenty-five years later.

The work environment was great. There were various job titles that I had, and from a production standpoint it wasn't bad at all. The job involved understanding and taking the initiative to learn the work.

great paying job with security
Tow motor operator - load and unload trailers (Former Employee), Marietta, PAJuly 11, 2014
Pros: free drinks and stuff when it was hot. great place to advance in, very secure job with a union
Cons: not too many cons other than the mandatory overtime or if there was a labor dispute.
it was very easy work, i was in a fun team environment. hardest part was the mandatory overtime we would have to do sometimes, up to 6 days working 12 hours a day can be exhausting, but the paychecks were definitely nice.

Professional yet enjoyable work environment.
Accounting Clerk (Current Employee), Edwardsville, ILFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule.
Cons: healthcare
Typical day includes making bank deposit, updating client accounts, printing reports, making collection calls. Our management system is professional but also flexible, my managers motto is "family comes first", so if ever my kids are sick or get hurt at school I am able to take the time needed to be with them as long as I am able to keep up with my – more... workload. I cannot honestly say there is anything hard about my job, so I would have to say the one hour commute each way is the hardest. I love being able to go in the office and do my job every day, and some days I have the opportunity to go above and beyond to do special things that make me feel extra productive. – less

Stress sales lack of support
Field Service Representative (Former Employee), Oregon/Washington/Idaho/WyomingFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: company car, gas, credit card
Cons: overworked, under paid, do more for less, manager takes credit for your work
Bad management, uses scare tactics to "encourage" you to work harder. No matter what you do it's never enough. No support as a rep in the field, work hard to make a sale and manager takes credit.
Claims doesn't stand behind mistakes and factory errors, thus upset dissatisfied customers.
You are replaceable and told so many times. To advance is to suck – more... up to Managers and be a part of the good ole boys club or be related to someone in upper management. – less

Immediately threaten your job
Lean Master Engineer (Former Employee), South Gate, CAJanuary 29, 2014
I was hired to work in the South Gate plant as a corporate employee, never reported to anyone for 3 months because they moved my boss into another position.

I was never given any training on my job and immediately was threatened that if my performance was not better I would be in a; Job in jeopardy. I replied really I just started dont you get a chance – more... to learn your position and there response was you should know it. Everything you do rather its filling out your insurance or establishing a budget you get zero training or help on. I was working 70 hours a week and decided that I was not going to be threatened to perform and give more so I could be told it was not good enough.

I would truly not recommend going to work for this company, it was the worst place I have ever worked. The plant employees are great people but the management & culture I would not wish on my worst enemy.

I worked at other companies where you had 3-6 months to learn your position, I was released at 6 months because I was not doing enough or possibly it was not to there level. Not sure they never give me a reason, it was a joke and I was happy to move on. – less
