Not fun
Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTApril 8, 2017
Owner and upper level management is clueless on how to run a company. Eventually it will be non-existant or greatly reduced. It needs to turn over companies to managers that have real life experience
Pros
cafeteria
Cons
Management lets people go based gossip not on performance.

Great company
So. Cal Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CAOctober 25, 2016
If you know haw to sell you will make a lot of money with them. They are actually very good blenders and they have quite a lot of people who love them. You just have to know how to remain super energetic.
Pros
Lots of money and free days
Cons
heavy work load during work days.

Great product poor managment
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Orem UtahAugust 25, 2016
Company could really dominate their field if they got the right people to manage the company instead of family.
Management makes decisions without input from sales team on products or procedures that effect the customer and sales team to effectively do their job and provide quality service.
Pros
great product
Cons
horrible managment

Good job but not opportunities to grow
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  oremJuly 27, 2016
No opportunities to grow, you need to be friends with the manager to have better chances to a promotion, they give you money for school each semester which is good if you are not looking for a career in the company.

Blendtec
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTJuly 4, 2016
Working at Blendtec was a great experience. I enjoyed the people that I worked with very much. However, the culture of the Executive Management was not conducive to feeling secure. They would hire and fire Department Management randomly. The atmosphere became one of walking on eggshells and not sure if you would have a job tomorrow.

regional manager
REGIONAL SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTMay 18, 2016
It all starts from the top. the founder still has his hands in too many areas of the business. There were constant changes with management and even personnel. Very unstable. Getting rid of people and moving them again is best said as "Changing seats on the Titanic". And sales directors that are felons!

Blendtec - Great work environment
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTNovember 2, 2015
Blendtec was a great place to work. The engineering managers expected the most out of you, but also were human beings that didn't mind letting their hair down and having a good laugh. They also knew that time with the family is important and didn't expect long overtime hours out of you.
Pros
Great managers. In-house bistro, gym, and medical clinic.
Cons
Temporarily going through bad financial times.

Worst place in the world to work
marketing dpt (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTOctober 29, 2015
First of all, I'm sure no one reading this is actually considering BT as a place to work, since they recently did another round of massive layoffs (After calling everyone together on a monday to warn of impending layoffs then waiting three days to do it...cruel) and can't afford to hire anyone anyway. That aside, this place is a mess. Financially, they can't even pay their employees or vendors (hence the layoffs). Ethically questionable behavior from many people. Management is running around like chickens with their heads cut off, and no one seems to know how to lead a company. The nepotism in this company will be its downfall. The people are put in charge not based on performance or qualification, but by last name or who they go to church with. Terrible culture, terrible leadership, terrible place to work.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Lack of job security, incompetent management, nepotism, etc, etc. etc

independent contractor/little support
independent contractor (Former Employee) –  st Louis, MOJuly 30, 2015
work 11-12 hour days; compensation is $125/day less deduction for the $1500 in equipment the contractor must purchase from Blendtec. hard word due to vast competition from less expensive blender competition; lot of resistance to pay $300 for a blender even though it has an excellent eight yr. warranty; it is a superb machine. management is literally "virtual" rather than physical. tremendous competition from more expensive better known and recognizable competitor.
Pros
excellent product
Cons
no benefits/management/communication via text; no fellow workers

Run away from this company
HAPPY TO BE GONE (Former Employee) –  UtahMay 2, 2015
They say they care for the employees. When in reality it's greed that drives them. Especially the new coo. If you disagree with him, you're done. He would rather just hire temps. So he doesn't have to give any benefits. Years ago this company had core values that made it a very good company to work for. Low pay, raises cap at 2%. This company does shady deals in order to try to keep up with the market. They claim everything is going great. Not true at all!!! They are not currently able to even pay thier venders!!!! Over 50 good people lost thier jobs recently because blendtec couldn't make payroll!!!
Run away, and do not apply here.
Pros
Clinic
Cons
Everything else

Great Place
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Orem, UTApril 30, 2015
Blendtec offers fantastic benefits. Along with that there is a fully staffed kitchen, workout facility, personal nutritionist, and a masseuse in the building. All in all the work-life/ experience is one worth while.

Don't do it
Worker (Former Employee) –  Orem, UtahApril 29, 2015
Talk about a stressful place to work. Executive Management is out of touch. Their CEC leadership is an industry first in how not to help a company succeed. I hated going into work each day not knowing if I will still have a job or not.
Pros
Good pay for the time you are employed
Cons
CEC team

Fun easy job... BUT
ES3 Assembly (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTMarch 10, 2015
Such a fast paced job, the 'line lead' our 'team' had was a real jerk... I was hired as a temp, 150 people were laid off. I was one of them. So if they were more reliable that you wouldn't lose your job, that would be better... But overall, they take care of their employees. The christmas party was really nice and they made you feel included and appreciated.
Pros
Shifts fly by, no down time for boredom
Cons
Grumpy line lead w/ negative attitude
