Communication was horrible, job was ok, machines broke down frequently
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Terre Haute, IN – August 27, 2015
Overall, the assembly line work was fast paced, but doable. Material handling job was fast paced too. I had to work on more than one line at a time. Communication from management was horrible - from top to bottom. Machines broke down constantly, so there was a lot of downtime. Waited for maintenance or engineers anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes to fix problem - we thought. The same problems occurred over and over before they finally fixed them. We missed a lot of trucks and couldn't meet demands from companies. Management told us this too. Very disorganized company.
However, I was very impressed that the president of the company was on the floor very often to watch what was being done. This is very rare for any company. My supervisor was very nice and helped out. Some of the coworkers also helped educate me on what to do and where to go.
