Class A Tool and Die Maker (Former Employee) – Lake Geneva, WI – October 12, 2016
I'm a former employee who worked in the tool room. The work was fun and challenging at the same time, always being busy was great. The supervisor and coworkers were always nice and helpful. But when it comes to the buddy system the good people get the shaft. The H.R. department makes up new rules as they go along to fit their needs at the time in order to get rid of people and the department mangers help in doing the same. People lie through their teeth to keep their jobs and get someone else fired for their faults. The top people ( Lars) only get told what they want to here with the day to day info, I wonder if things would change if they in fact new the real truth behind what really goes on.

Human Resources Clerk/ Data Entry Clerk/ Payroll (Former Employee) – Lake Geneva, WI – November 9, 2013
When I initially started with Brunk Industries I was hired as a receptionist to answer all incoming calls, greet everyone coming into Brunk, order supplies for the entire plant. I also assisted with projects the VP, CFO and Human Resources Manager needed. I was promoted to Human Resource Clerk where I assisted all employees with various needs such as workers compensation, benefits, vacation time, FMLA and was responsible for all payroll for exempt and non exempt employees. The days were exciting because every day was different and the HR Manager and I had a great working relationship. The hardest part of the position was the commute. The drive was approximately 45 to 50 minutes daily and during the winter it was much longer than that. My overall position at Brunk Industries was wonderful, rewarding and truly one of the best positions I have ever worked in.
Bring a part of Brunk Industries was Pro, I loved the company, the people and what they stood behind.
Unfortunately the con was the commute to Brunk Industries, which was approximately 45 to 50 minutes daily.
Company of 200 people resistant to change and growth.
Manager, Project Management Office (PMO) (Former Employee) – Lake Geneva, WI – November 29, 2012
Executive management doesn't know enough about the medical device regulations to push the company forward and implement much-needed ISO 13485 regulations. Executive team is resistant to change and new ideas. They've even had an outside consultant team trying to make changes within the company for the last 6+ years and still nothing has been accomplished to move the company in a positive direction. Owner/president doesn't like "bad news" and buries his head in the sand until external customers complain. Then his method of motivation - on the rare occassion he's in the office - is to badger and call the employees names. The 2-person HR team also uses badgering and bullying so there's no place to turn for guidance.
little to no overtime is expected of exempt employees.
old-fashioned thinking, resistance to growth and change, no advancement opportunities, executive management plays favorites with their "good ol' boy club", old technology for office workers, upper management does not seem business savvy, low morale among workers
