I cut hydraulic hoses at precise measurments according to orders and also crimp parts and pack orders out according to what the customer wants.
SAW OPERATOR (Current Employee), Iola, KSJanuary 12, 2014
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work I am getting orders ready to be shipped according to the customer needs. I work well with others, I enjoy working in a team but can also do fine on my own. I am a fast learner and alwasy try to make sure I get the job done right. The hardest part of my job would have to be the excessive amount of manditory overtime. It is not easy to do with kids. I have always enjoyed my job I enjoy learning new tasks and skills and then following through with customer satifaction.

Excellent place to work. Enjoyable. Yearly company picnics, and other company sponsored activities.
Maintenance Supervisor (Current Employee), Jefferson, NCJuly 26, 2013
Pros: free coffee/hot chocolate, luncheons. training.
Cons: hot environment. closing due to economy.
I really enjoy going to work everyday. Each day contains different challenges. The management encourages employee participation in safety and idea gathering. I attend many different types of training classes (i.e. SPC, Safety, Problem Solving, Employee Relations, etc.) The hardest part of my job is employee scheduling due to understaffing in the maintenance department. The part of my job I enjoy the most is being able to make production employees jobs easier through continuous improvements. I am saddened that the plant is closing due to the economic down turn in our country.

Hard working but fun staff that is very willing to help when needed.
Accounting Intern (Former Employee), Denver, COJuly 19, 2013
Work would begin at around 7:30-8am and go until 4:30-5pm.

Management was very willing to give feedback or answer any questions about a project that was being worked on and coworkers were more than willing to help answer other questions when managers were busy.

Got decent exposure to the software ORACLE and GERS

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee), Denver, COApril 5, 2013
Worked in Corporate in Denver. Team members were carefully chosen for work ethic, knowledge, skills and ability to fit well within the team and company in general. The general working culture was supportive of new ideas and solutions to problems. Although benchmark driven the company also provided tools to meet those benchmarks. It was a pleasure to work at Gates.

Marketing and Sales Support Specialist (Former Employee), World Headquarters Denver, ColoradoOctober 31, 2012
Pros: my co-workers, our newer bicycle market development team, my work with the marketing group, eco-pass for denver public transportation
Cons: antiquated work schedules, micro-management at highest levels, very little fostering of creative and innovative marketing or process ideas
Working for Gates Corporation was a great experience. I was able to learn how to manage all projects from Pricing, HR, to Marketing Analysis Tables, and Compensation formulas. I enjoyed helping develop our new markets and plan events and meetings along with working closely with my co-workers to help make Gates a better place to work.

Poor Leadership
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Denver, COJuly 27, 2012
Pros: a paycheck
Cons: poor leadership, pathetic raises, manipulative people
One of the worst companies I have ever worked for. Constant change and reorganization to cut cut heads as a "cost savings initiative". How about senior management stops throwing around their weight to drive fear into their employees. No respect and no pride for this company. The people put in leadership roles have an education level of a HS Diploma.

wholeheartedly agree.

In what world? Gates is disciplined by fear of losing their job thanks to senior management. Leadership is poor and there's a constant haze over the dam* place!

Pros: health benifits, and co-workers
Cons: locations
I learned that even large companies are not secure. Co-workers are supportive. Hardest part was leaving. The most enjoyable part of the job is that there was always something different every day.
