There is no future here.
operator (Former Employee), barabooMarch 17, 2014
Pros: operators are mostly nice, always hiring cause so many people quit.
Cons: work conditions, complacency, union
Press operator jobs will run a person into the ground, the work is noisy, dusty, hot, monotonous and all around unrewarding. Hard work and dedication will get you nowhere. Once an operator is broken and close to retirement, they get fired, I saw it, it was so sad, the place destroyed this guy's wrists so they told him they couldn't use him anymore, – more... 60 years old, done the same job for decades and they tossed him to the curb. Managers and HR are like a flock of seaguls, they fly in, poo on everything then fly off. There is no loyalty between the company and the workers. There is an open shop union here that the owners despise and take out the workers. Single issues aren't dealt with when they arise on a case by case basis, instead, absurd rules are made up or long standing policies interpreted differently. Silly things like if you cross your name off a voluntary overtime list - You Get Fired. If you sign up for a different position, then decide you don't want if, you have to take the job, cross your name off the list? Get Fired. This company has been shutting down it's American operations and is in love with cheap exploited labor from China and Mexico. The pay is awful. They are "self insured", you can figure out what that means. Most of the workers are nice and decent people, some aren't, same as anywhere. The intrusion into your personal life is crazy. They force you to do a company blood draw to check your "wellness". Refuse? You bet, written up, maybe fired. At one time, they even had all the regular soda removed from the vending machines and forced you to buy that diet junk with all the chemicals in it. Don't even step in the front door, unless you are on huber and need a job. – less

Maintenance Technician (Current Employee), Sharon Center, OHOctober 15, 2013
Pros: short drive to work.
Cons: management and policy
My day is a mixed bag of capitol projects and putting out fires. Most of the production equipment is in rough shape due to lack of re-investment and short cuts in PM programs.That cuts into time to give
to upgrades as our department is severely understaffed. We are also
lacking in decent machining and welding equipment which unfortunately is a lot of – more... the repair's we have to accomplish. We have
been thru three different managers in the last year and a half which
lends no stability or continuation of process to our department.

The management is very autocratic in nature. If one complains the standard answer is " If you don't like it here, just quit." The HR manager is no advocate of the staff and is more interested in getting
rid of any non-lockstep thinking.

The only saving grace are my co-workers who have also tried to make the best of it and they are moving on as well.

The hardest part of the job is looking at the "The Company Values"
propaganda poster at the time clock every day and seeing how they actually treat people.

We lost our monthly attendance bonus when they came in.
Same for profit sharing.
The most we get is a " Employee Appreciation Day" after working us
2-3 weeks in a row, 24/7, 10-12 hours a day. You get ONE hotdog
and ONE hamburger.Not impressive at all.

When this company came in it stated that it was going to be 8 hour days and no weekends so " you can spend time with your family and enjoy life". So much for that.

At one time it was fun to come in and overcome problems and find ways to improve things. Now the highlight is to punch out at the end of shift and go home.

If you are thinking of coming here, do yourself a favor and keep moving. – less

Manufacturing Coord. (Current Employee), Madison GA.December 14, 2012
Pros: great people to work with & family oriented workplace.
Cons: some people don't realize how good they have it.
I have always enjoyed working at Flambeau. I have been here a total of about 5 years with both times working here. I was laid off the 1st time due to moving the Customer Service Dept. to Barboo. I was hired back in the Quality Department and love working with all the people I work with.

I highly recommend Flambeau as a wonderful place to work!

Solid Family Business With Good Values
Sales (Current Employee), All LocationsDecember 13, 2012
Pros: growth & opportunity, benefits, culture.
Cons: hard work
When you work at Flambeau, you are considered family. People here work hard and are focused and develop a strong bond because of the common goals of the company. Promotion is mostly done from within so its a good place to stay and develop a career. Very fair compensation and great benefits. Many people have been here 25+ years. Privately owned and very – more... financially stable and I believe the company is managed well. We have grown a lot in the last 5 years and have plans to double in size in the next 5-10 years. I I travel a lot for the company and have seen almost every plant and they all have a very similar culture. – less
