It was a great place to work the whole way through. I've made lifelong friends with a lot of people throughout the years there..
Shipping Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – May 17, 2017
It was a great place to work the whole way through. I've made lifelong friends with a lot of people throughout the years there.. I've also advanced from being a young man still learning the ropes of the business, to being a very important part of how things ran from day to day..
Purchasing (Former Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 18, 2017
They have good holidays. They have people in management that they favor their buddies. Its very hard to get promoted. Its very hard to get promoted and they have people in places that don't know their job
no advancement and they have the buddy buddy thing going on
Group Leader (Current Employee) – Sedalia, MO – March 29, 2017
I used to love my job the environment was great, the pay everything, but every since they brought in a new quality manager and materials manager I am asked to do more work in a days time than one person can handle. The chance to advance is minimal once you reach group leader and that is not enough for me. There was a time when we mass produced air compressors since the hiring of the new materials manager we can barley complete our mps 3 months out of the year and the little guy is the one to blame of course
Pay is excellent, Most of mgmt are great to work for
materials are always short and the quality manager is very abrasive in a public manner
Product Manager (Current Employee) – Quincy, IL – February 20, 2017
Management is going in two directions, therefore, the company is going in no direction. One part is caught in the past, the other is trying to move the company forward. Everyone else is stuck in the middle
It was very interesting working for this great company where I learned many things about networking. The working environment is very conducive and it encourages uplifting. I was given the opportunity to advance my career. Lastly, it was a great experience working for this company.
Good work but, hard to get on full-time with benefits
Also, pressure test units and assist other depts (Former Employee) – Sedalia, MO – January 30, 2017
I worked there for 11 and a half months at $8 p/h hoping for a full-time spot and got laid off. In Sedalia, MO it is difficult to get a full-time spot at a manufacturing company without going through a temporary work agency. seems very in fair but, such is life. You suck it up and keep moving forward.
Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Princeton, IL – January 4, 2017
I was able to shadow the facility's engineer, which gave me a great outlook on what I will be doing in my future. It was fun and very interesting. I was always working on something and the days just flew by.
Machinist (Former Employee) – Conroe, TX – October 10, 2016
On a day to day basis it was always a good time. We always were able to get the work done in a timely fashion and still have a good time. I enjoyed the bosses and the crew. The best part of the job was being able to learn new things from people who had more experience.
The company is very segmented and each facility is secluded from the others. There is no real career ladder or opportunity for advancement. There is little to no management support and decisions are made on the fly and without good sound logic.
Customer Service / Managed Care (Former Employee) – Quincy, IL – September 15, 2016
I enjoyed my time at Gardner Denver, working in the Air Compressor and Auto Motive industry most of my life. Solid Company, but plant and job relocations pushed me to look for another position in my area.
Strong Air Compressor Market and Auto industry base
