IT Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – April 21, 2016
a typical day at work consists of clocking in and jumping right into work, resolving tickets and shipping out equipment for remote users. The IT staff are very helpful and welcoming. They have a good balance of teaching you things you need to know but while at the same time allowing you to learn on your own. Co-workers in the IT department are unique, funny, and sociable. Hardest part of the job is addressing everyones concerns in one day. IT department is understaffed. Most enjoyable aspect of the job is learning more and being able to address issues on your own and seeing the increase in your knowledge and ability to handle particular issues.
Dated equipment, no standard of equipment 5 users can have 5 different type of machines
Shipping and Receiving (Former Employee) – 6 volvo, Rockleigh nj – March 19, 2016
I worked at Crestron for 9 years, co- workers were good to work with. In my first years it was great to work at Crestron. As the years went by there were so many rules and regulations it was crazy.In my 9th year I got hurt on the job and I had to get a operation,it took more than 90 days and they terminated me. Imagine after 9 years!!!
I'm sorry for telling you this bad news. Now I have no job and if I wanted to start all over again I would lose all my benefits.

QA Lead (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, Nj – March 9, 2016
A typical day at work in Crestron updating Test plans, Test scripts, attending meetings for new requirements. I have learned Supply Chain applications SAP/CRM and Warehouse Management functionality, testing the applications and managing Quality Center for Defect management, Test Plans and Test Scripts, creating new projects, User Profiles etc. We had a good team and was good team player. Worked well with other team members. The hardest part of the job was too much expectations and less communication. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning new everyday.
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – February 8, 2016
The Company became a nightmare to work for with the arrival of relatively new Management, including HR Director. They simply do not care about people but themselves and their clueless relatives whom they bring in. Sad, very-very sad to say the least...
Order Administrator (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – December 4, 2015
Excellent place to work with co-works (fun/enjoyable) no room to grow normal red tape and politics - nothing outside the norm hardest part of the job was not being able to grow into new positions did learn SAP and was able to pass my knowledge to new hires
If you enjoy working for a company that has you doing hamster wheel activities with almost zero room for advancement at the lowest possible pay wages while simultaneously being treated like a pawn in a chess game to be used up at the hierarchy's expense and receiving no recognition, incentive, or reward for working hard, then Crestron is the company for you.
40 hours a week
Management and HR are a joke, The wages are insulting, Pay raises and annual increases are pathetic. Management makes empty promises, Brainless work
Secure employment always busy. Company continually growing
Contract Manufacturing Liaison \ Test Engineer (Current Employee) – Rockleigh New Jersey – August 25, 2015
Fast paced work environment. Constantly changing duties and responsibilities, Crestron Electronics creates hundreds of new products each year. Employees need to be excellent at multi-tasking, and able to prioritize several objectives continuously. You need to demonstrate working individually and working with others to accomplish your goals.
exposure to leading edge technology in Automation Control and many electronic products.
good performance is rewarded with more assigments and responsiblities
Stockroom (Former Employee) – Rockleigh, NJ – July 14, 2015
As mentioned elsewhere, the pay is insulting. The company was recommended to me, but I would not recommend it to anyone else. Culture is non-existent, and there's segregation between buildings, departments, hourly vs. salary employees. The safety rules and policies are over-kill. The head of safety compliance is an abusive person, well protected by senior management. There's not much room for advancement at all. You can only hope to transfer positions after a 6 month period. Training was pitiful. I was essentially just thrown to my desk with expectations.... I enjoyed my co-workers. Lots of decent folks there you work along side with,
Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Orangeburg, NY – May 4, 2015
I've worked for almost 3 years in the shipping department at the Orangburg facility. During my run there I've worked with great people within my department , however management is a joke. With all the the hard work and overtime you put it, it gets un noticed. Very little pay for hardwork, standing on your feet for 8-10 hours. Department change or shift change? Good luck. Despite of my 2 year run, I've asked for a shift change so that i can schedule myself to go back to school. In one ear and out the other. Everything goes by favoritism . In order to be liked by the shipping supervisors , mainly the daytime ones, you have to either play video games they like, watch the same sports as them or simply have the same interests. Very unproffessional. New rules are applied everyday. Also there are different rules for different people , and special privileges for some employees. Im glad i got out of that place. The shipping department should only be a pit stop in your life , unless you really like the workload it comes with. I absolutely do not recommend this place unless you really need a job and are willing to settle for slave work. Only good thing is that if you need overtime and the extra money , its always available .
