Hard work is rewarded
Supervisor (Former Employee), Salina, KSJuly 20, 2015
Pros: Lots of learning opportunities
Cons: Poor working environment, small budgets
Exide is a place where you can express yourself and are rewarded for hard work. There is a lot of lean manufacturing training and opportunities to make improvements. Unfortunately Upper management has made some poor decisions,usually because of budget problems. Lots of good people in a company struggling to survive.

This job compensated you by how hard you worked, I made great money.
battery line worker/ leader (Former Employee), Bristol, TNJune 16, 2015
Pros: The money and health benefits
Cons: lead contamination
The hours were long. I lost down to my perfect weight. I loved the fast paced environment. My managers were all great. Sometimes the workload would cause co-workers to be irritable and jealous when you made better money than them. It was noticeable by how many batteries you put out daily.

Work Place
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Vernon, CAMay 4, 2015
Pros: always learning something new
Cons: too much gossip
It was a nice place to work, with excellent co-workers, and environment. The hardest part was the heat from the furnaces, I learned you must keep the production going 24/7. The management can change orders at any moment.

STABLE WORK PLACE
Material Handler (Former Employee), Columbus, GAApril 9, 2015
VERY GOOD PLACE TO WORK. LONG HOURS BUT GREAT PAY AND BENEFITS. A TYPICAL DAY GOES BY FAST. YOU HAVE A BREAK EVERY TWO HOURS SO YOU CAN GO ALL OUT. THE SUPERVISORS OR PRETTY GOOD ITS JUST THE LINE LEADERS THAT SCREW YOU OVER. BUT OTHER THAN THAT ITS A JOY TO WORK THERE

Maintenance of machinery
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee), Frisco, TXApril 8, 2015
Pros: Working days and being home at night with my family. The people I worked with were also great.
Cons: Face mask (to protect from lead in air), company went bankrupt, company closed in Frisco.
At Exide I was a Maintenance Tech keeping the battery recycling machines up and running. I enjoy the maintenance side of the job. I took pride in helping to train others in the field. Hardest part of the job was having to wear a full face mask/respirator because of the lead in the air.

I am very honored to have worked Exide Technologies, the people that I have worked with we're very helpful for me to learn my job, but what I mostly like about Exide Technologies was caring about the workers safety they show a lot of concern and compassion.

Assembly supervisor (Current Employee), Fairfax, KSMarch 8, 2015
My fellow co-workers are very helpful when you have a question about anything. When I got promoted the first time to team leader I was trained by different people for a total of 3 months before I was left on my own. The plant that I work at is the most efficient plant in North America for Exide, so we know that our plant is here to stay.

Not that amazing
Accounting Manager (Former Employee), Plant OperationsFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: knowledgeable plant personnel in many cases
Cons: turnover, uncertain future
Company filed for Bankruptcy protection for second time in 2013; serious shortage of funding for ongoing operations. Auto battery business is very competitive, lots of turnover of managers as company sorts out it's overall business model. Plant personnel are generally knowledgeable, but lacks strong executive vision to drive growth and avoid being clobbered by the major producers in the market like Johnson Controls.

Bankrupt
Distribution Center Checker (Current Employee), Salina, KSFebruary 9, 2015
Pros: good pay
Cons: variable work scheduel
I work in the elements, when its hot its hot, and when its cold its cold. I appreciate hard work and this job is nothing less. There is a lot of heavy lifting on a daily basis. management sometimes seems a little confused, they will tell you one thing and you will do another. There are a lot of good people that work there, hardships with bankruptcies has put a lot of stress and demand on different departments in the plant. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting to work along-side good friends in which I have established great relationships.
