I thoroughly enjoyed working there. It was a family business, but the ownership of running your own business taught me a lot to take responsibility and get ahead in life.

logistics facility for Cat.
Facility Services Supervisor (Former Employee), Chillicothe, ILMarch 18, 2015
Cons: short lunches and breaks.
working in the maintenance dept. means that a typical day here is usually gone before you know it. I have acquired some new knowledge of cranes and conveyors since I have been here. most all employee's are good people here in the facility. the management here needs flushed out and replaced but hey that's why there are new jobs out there for us to find and move into.

Great Place to Work
Manufacturing Operator (Former Employee), Grand Rapids, MIJanuary 15, 2015
Pros: good bosses, execellent employees
Cons: n/a
I was a production worker who operated varies machines. You were excepted to run 100% although I did not hit the goals everyday. I was never written up for a lack of production or was I ever written up for anything including Attendance. I worked at the company for eighteen years an made friends out of my supervisors for they knew I was a dependable worker who put his best foot forward.

It was long hours and not always enough work to keep everyone busy. So there was a lot of down time,and everyone was required to stay there.
INSTALLATION MECHANIC (Former Employee), Sutherland,Virginia (Walmart Distribution Center)May 26, 2014
Pros: paid breaks/lunch breaks
Cons: long days/nights 6 days a week, with lots of down time. too much man power, not enough work.
Long days/nights

Learned about conveyor belt systems

Management was not the greatest, could of been a lot better.

Co-workers all worked well together, but did not speak English.

The hardest part of the job was mandatory being there when there was nothing at all to do, and waiting hours for deliveries or other trades. I thought it was a waste of company money and time.

Most enjoyable part of the job is when there was plenty of work to do, and the days/nights flew by.

Source for weekly Dilbert scenarios
Engineer (Former Employee), Grand Rapids MIFebruary 21, 2013
Pros: clients still buy their products - once in a while
Cons: inept management, cyclical layoffs with no re-hiring after relocating personel
The worse managed company of its size, ran by ego centric sales men who don't have clue. They make the "Evil Director" look like a genius.

They spend huge amounts of money recruiter and relocating out of state employees, then lay them off leaving them stranded. This is their historical SOP.
