Manufacturing Specialist Level II (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – September 4, 2015
Was a good job before the finalization of the company buyout occurred, Afterwards overseas outsourcing and poor management resulted in the closure of a company that had been in business for 60+ years, resulting in 200+ layoffs including myself. Good company to work for on a temporary basis, but I would not suggest it for anyone looking for a job they can retire from. Overall job experience was enjoyable and I worked with many good people. Management was a revolving door, just one after the other,
Great work enviornment, Timely raises and good benefits, Great opportunities for overtime
Assembler (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – February 22, 2016
come into work at times starting at 5:00 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. and working eight hours. Management was very nice and helpful when needed.All my coworkers were very nice and established friendships with some.the hardest part of the job was the risk of injury due to the extremely fast rate of speed they expected out of you. Too much rush involved with the job.
Quality Auditor/Trainer (Current Employee) – kansas city, mo – March 18, 2014
a typical day at work is going in being there by 7am have a meeting do stretches and then get into our 8 hour day of packaging products and working as fast as possible to push stuff out of the door what I have learned is in some ways to be lead and to push people and motivate people management is way in over their head and have been able so far to treat their people however they feel like treating them ex. cussing at them co workers are friendly for the most part but have poor listening skills the hardest part of the job is to be one of the top performing employess and being constantly nagged at and seeing people who don't work that hard get raises and the people that work hard don't get shown gratitude for how hard they work and the most enjoyable part is the friends I have there that can listen to me venting on break I have never been so unhappy with this company until now
Chain assembly operator (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – October 2, 2015
My experience at Blount introduced me to a lot of good people. The supervisors are very respectful and genuinely take car of everything. I enjoyed working there because I always clearly understood all the expectations, was allowed independently, and had managers that were open to improvement.
Assembly Operator (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – March 7, 2013
They treat temporary employees like garbage, In my case leading me on for 2 and 1/2 years only to watch people whom I trained be hired on before me. Co-workers however are very nice and benefits and opportunities to move within the company are good if you are in fact a core employee. Management is sometimes lacking and you really have to get on someones back to get an answer or something done even when it is important. The hardest part of the job is you are replaceable at a dime a dozen as a temporary employee
Shipping Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 21, 2013
I was a part of leadership team. The former management was great the current management is a joke. I dedicated all my time in the company with little thanks and no advancement. They promoted people with less than 6 months to jobs they didn't know and couldn't handle. I worked with a great crew but no management support. The inventory manager is the most evil woman to work for. I think she is bipolar.

My day consist of picking orders to meet customer demands. It is a place where there is team work, which is very important. The hardest part of my job is the heavy lifting. I enjoy my co workers and my supervisors... they are always there to help.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 30, 2013
Very interesting job. I learned how lawn mower blades were made. Learned different jobs and how to program a robot. The people are very nice and got along really good. The hardest part of the job was the heat. No air conditioning. The most enjoyable part was learning different things.
