DC production Line Worker (Former Employee), Bristol, TN – April 27, 2014
start day with safety meeting and all that we needed to get accomplished that day. I learned that there are so many type of batteries for so many different things. Management was great. They always treated you good as long as you did your job and stayed away from drama in the work place. Hardest part of the job was lifting and tugging 150 to 175lb batteries. – more... I enjoyed putting the plaques on the batteries and volt checking them. I hated to see it shut its doors in Bristol operations. I could have seen myself there for a long time. – less

Production Supervisor (Current Employee), Columbus, GA – February 26, 2014
Cons: no structure
My day to day activities as a supervisor are very hectic with little to know learning curve for a new employee coming into this company. I thrive on a challenge however with the challenge comes the opportunity to succeed when given new ask to do, not to be given a new task to fail. In a nutshell Exide is and can be a much more successful company with – more... all of their employees if structure is set and everyone has a clear understanding of the direction of the company with managers communicating with supervisors, to supervisors getting the proper information to inform direct reports overall vision for the company. I can say that Exide has many employees who have been there just as long as I've been alive however I have heard from the employees themselves its because of the monetary compensation that made them hang around not the organization of the company. – less

Exide allowed me to provide for my family for many years. Their pay was above average but the company required extreme dedication to remain employed. I feel I can work anywhere after having been employed with Exide.
TTP welder opperator (Former Employee), Manchester, IA – January 14, 2014
Cons: heat, antique machinery.molten lead and constant burns
any small mistake made could get you screamed at by supervisors. much like a day at boot camp in the army. It was degrading. The majority of employees were very arrogant and unaccepting of new people .Monthly blood testing for lead exposure .required heavy rubber resparators in unbearable heat.This was not an enjoyable place to work.
warehouse worker/driver (Former Employee), Baton Rouge, LA – December 10, 2013
A typical day at Exide starts of getting batteries load on trucks to be shipped out. Then once your finished with that you have to wait until all the new orders are finished being placed which could take up to 5 hours. I didn't have any coworkers in the warehouse with me so i worked by myself majority of the time.
Maintenance Technician I (Former Employee), Kansas City, KS – November 1, 2013
Pros: fairly good pay
Cons: bad beifits, company has declared bankruptcy, toxic work environment, no 401k match ( for hourly people ) unsafe working conditions
This company recently declared bankruptcy. The work environment is unsafe at best. Dust collection systems for the lead dust in the air routinely do not work from lack of parts that are deemed to expensive. During summer temperatures on the work floor are routinely over 100 degrees F. There are little if any cool zones to help stop heat exhaustion.
