Stressful work place with horrible hours. No home life at all
Fabrication Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Savanna, ILJuly 11, 2017
The company is busy all year long. If you like to work 50+ hrs a week and every weekend it's a great place to work. Management has no clue what they are doing with horrible attitudes toward employees. Pay is good if you get the chance to advance but very unlikely to do so. Co-Workers are rude!!!
Pros
Heathcare and 401k, 40+hrs per week, pay is ok
Cons
You are replacable, hours are horrible, managers have no knowledge of job duties, limited job training

Good Job With Zero Security
Associate (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 3, 2017
Elkay is a good place to work if you're ok with the fact that you could be let go at any time for any reason. If you want a nice job with zero job security then definitely apply.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Absolutely no job security

Good Pay for those who speak Spanish
Crewmember (Former Employee) –  Waconia, MNJune 30, 2017
Elkay is a decent place to work, but on the floor, if you do not speak Spanish, you are a minority... The management is good, but it's the co-workers that constantly will talk behind your back if you do not speak Spanish, so that makes for a stressful work area.You are expected to keep moving, cleaning or something throughout the day. If it gets too hot in the summer (internal warehouse temp hits 110+), they will shut down ALL lines and clear the warehouse for 15-20 min to help it cool down (curing/baking ovens are in use 12+ hours of the day).
Pros
Decent pay, quaterly evaluations
Cons
Start before the sun comes up, leave after it goes down, rude co-workers

Expeditor/Process Auditor (Current Employee) –  Ringgold, VAMarch 30, 2017
Over all Elkay is a good company to work for. However, the Ringgold facility is in need of a management over hall. Good atmosphere and jobs but the management sucks, shows too much favoritism, makes rules to suit what they want, and does not promote from within and according to skills you have but according to who they want to put into positions.

Working at Elkay is like being part of a large family. The employees truly enjoy working together and even hang out together outside of work. There is a true spirit of wanting to help each other succeed.

Supply Chain Intern (Former Employee) –  Waconia, MNJanuary 4, 2017
My team in Elkay was friendly, helpful, and most importantly supportive. Aside from performances and results, the management cared about my individual learning and growth and each member was resourceful. The company emphasized on improvement and such culture can be seen even in simple daily routines. It was overall an enjoyable experience.

American made Water Coolers
Member of the Accident Investigation Team (Former Employee) –  Savanna, ILDecember 29, 2016
Was a pretty laid back place for a factory. Buzzers tell you when you can take breaks, which is odd. Very little difference in pay between the pay grades, but a little more is still more.

this place says the people are there most valuable asset but were a dime a dozen for them. its suppose to be the employes company and they want are ideas but what comes down to its there way or no way.
the management team create more havoc and then workers are expected to clean up.

scheduling well you dont dare to plan anything cause they change hours on a whim and if you dont comply you get points
its stressful and uncaring.
Pros

Cons

Job was a great experience
Detailer (Former Employee) –  Culver, INSeptember 14, 2016
A typical day was hard labor
Learned how cabinets are built
Management wasn't the greatest
Most of the co-workers were awesome!
Hardest part was all the crazy hours at the last minute being told you have to be in early or stay later.
The most enjoyable part would be meeting all the people I did that worked there.
