Overall a Good place too Work
Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) –  Fairburn, GAJanuary 19, 2015
Typical day would include turning on all the machines in my area to heat up etc, Schedule cells and material handling.

I learned alot about manufacturing and managing people and building teams, and maintaining and exceeding goals.

Management is very hands on, and follow up very well.

Most co- workers did their part in helping the company

Hardest part of my job is fire fighting, handling every issue such as
lack of material to produce job, and mechanical issues.

Most enjoyable part of the job is to help people when needed, such as work and life skills
Pros
meeting new people
Cons
healthcare, advancement

Very demanding due to growth and changes
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Portland, ORMay 28, 2013
Due to some of the resent changes due to being bought by two Investment firms in the last years, it has lost it identity on who and what they are and can become. The only culture that has been installed in its work force is fear and intimidation.
They rely to heavily on the temporary work force, and use them to replace experienced workers.
For most small room for advancement.
Lack of communication between management and production.
Pros
working with good people who are dedicated
Cons
bad management, no communication, high turn over on temporary work force

Productive, yet laid back enough to be comfortable.
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Elkhart, INMarch 14, 2015
The best parts of the job are driving the forklift, and being a part of contributing to the GNP.

The hardest parts of the job are when the teamwork breaks down, and communications don't flow throughout the entire staff.
Pros
steady shift hours, and freedom to complete my tasks with minimal supervision.
Cons
poor communication, and little to no room for advancement.

A culture of fingerpointing is the plan for improvement
Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) –  Elkhart, INJuly 29, 2015
Constant management change along with ownership....zero stability in a culture of daily blame. Employee turnover is the business model. Free Gatorade on hot days is nice.

Shipping Clerk (Current Employee) –  Fairburn, GAFebruary 22, 2015
Boyd is very small but there's so much that goes on at the place. Human resources is one lady, no forklift safety rules are enforced, and there's always an issue.
