I was there almost 12 years. Never written up or late. I was out with a serious illness for about 6 weeks. The day I returned I was terminated. This company considers it's employees a Dime a Dozen their words. Supervisors are afraid to stand up for what is right with their employees.
Special Assembly (Current Employee) – Van Buren, AR – November 30, 2017
Poor management, managers and supervisors don't understand you have a life outside of work. They never congratulate you for your hard work, they only down you for a small mistake. This company is ridiculous and are very inconsiderate people. I do not recommend working here unless you REALLY need the money.
short breaks, poor management, unfriendly management, unrecognized work.
Baldor is a family oriented facility. Employees at the facility are dedicated and work hard to accomplish their tasks. Overall the company has good benefits and the facility is clean well lit and comfortable.
2nd Shift Operator (Former Employee) – Ozark, AR – September 7, 2017
Working at any plant is usually repetitive and boring. This is very much the case here. Thankfully the co-workers are entertaining and enjoyable to work with. Some of the necessary equipment is not functional which makes it very difficult to complete job assignments. The training is sub-par but passable.
Electric motor technician (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 8, 2017
It was good company to work for, but they changed management and everything change for that employees. Pay used to be great but change for new employees, they have to wait way longer to get their raises
Experienced and competent work force....incompetent management
Special test technician (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – July 31, 2017
Worked there for 30+ yrs...then a supervisor with less than a year on the job thought he knew my job better than I did..the upper management doesn't stand behind its employees..they will throw you under the bus at the drop of a hat
Painter, Machinist, Warehouseman & supervisor (Former Employee) – Ozark, AR – July 24, 2017
They say they're family oriented but they're really not. I was told on a couple of occasions that baldor was my family. They wanted us to work during Christmas shut down and if you couldn't they'd give you a bad review.
weren't safety conscientious until something happened.
Punch Press Operator (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – July 22, 2017
Good place to work, nice work inviromen. It was a nice family company when I worked there. Abb bought out baldor. But I'm positive the same workmanship goes in to every product. Taught me to take pride and ownership in my work . And to stand behind my product
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – July 15, 2017
I enjoyed my work at Baldor very much! The hours, the money and the benefits were good. I learned a lot over the 14+ years I was employed there. If my position had not been eliminated when Baldor sold out to ABB group, I would still be with this company.
A lot of people from the same town, which the same knowledge of each other. If you like drama and gossip, this is the perfect place for you. However, if you're looking to make your money and go home...I would avoid this place.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – Claremore, OK – June 18, 2017
I really liked this company step raises came very quickly and all The Managers and supervisors were great. The work was assigned to you by the Maintenance Manager with the utmost confidence. The work varied from Highly automated to simple things like monthly safety checks. I had plenty of satisfying experiences was able to show my skills and Work on my weaknesses. The Company benefits were also good.
Team Lead and Sr. Programmer / Analyst (Current Employee) – Greenville, SC – June 16, 2017
A typical day at work means working with the business in order to identify key areas where we can help improve customer satisfaction. Help mentor and assist team members with there tasks/objectives. Assist manager with daily reporting.
Office people will not talk to you like you are on their level of skill. We had a meeting and the plant manager said to us we all could be replaced because the production numbers were down. The CEO. John M. step down because he was getting investigating for buying up a lot of stock knowing the company was going to sale to ABB. He made millions off of it.
