I began my tenure with Gates Hudson as a part-time bookkeeper and worked my way up to supervising bookkeeper. My tasks included invoicing per the lease agreements; reading and billing for electric consumption by the tenants; attending court with the property's legal council; train and supervise the electric bookkeeper; work with collections agency to resolve debts of prior tenants.

management is unprofessional to say the least the hr person is always going to side with the company I really don't blame her she lost a prior job due to going against management its more about if they like you not about the job that you do very negative environment where you constantly get yelled at and belittled by upper management pay is ok if you like working next to pedofiles there are of lot of good people there but too much overtime at last minute
Crew Member (Former Employee) – Versailles, MO – June 15, 2016
A typical day at Gates was to show up 5 minutes early, have a team meeting and then go to your required position for the day. Co-workers were friendly and fun to work with. Managers were helpful when needed. The job overall was very nice and pay was very acceptable.
Most people here are wonderful hard working individuals. I've enjoyed working with and training my co-workers. They all seem to genuinely care and are very helpful. Management is not very willing to accommodate the needs of the employees and are not as family oriented as they claim to be. However they have given me a lot of opportunity to learn various skills including sending me to a 40 hour advanced problem solving training course. The most difficult part of my job is knowing that there is little to no room for growth. I need a company that will allow me to flourish. I have learned quite a bit working for Gates. Most of my computer skills weren't learned until I got the returns coordinator position. I can also run most of the machinery we have out on the floor. A typical day for me is mostly working on our new project. I do enjoy making work easier for the operators out on the floor. I've worked the floor and I understand the difficulties that they deal with.
paid breaks, decent benefits, good learning experience
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Columbia, MO – June 18, 2013
Team meetings each morning to inform of problems that occurred previous to our shift. Routine day, splice cord walk line, check dips, look for coverage or any abnormalities on treated cord. Doff spools and package. End of shift inform oncoming shift of any problems that they may want to watch out for and what we did to fix it.
poor communication and at times can be very dirty.
Extrusion Operator/ Team Lead (Former Employee) – Galesburg, IL – February 12, 2015
horrible environment. Not worth the pay to be in a cancer environment. several raw materials used cause cancer and they do not warn you. You work on your equipment for 12hrs a day and when something goes wrong you cant do what you need to do to fix it, for one you are union and you can be fired for performing maintenance on a piece of equipment. Second they listen to maintenance over you and maintenance attitude is we don't want to so its operator error, and you would think common scenes would tell some one that hey this person works here and knows his equipment, and has seen theses problems multiple times before but no lets listen to the guy who can sit on his behind if theirs nothing to do. Oh and they will walk you out for taking time off, when you have the proper documentation signed for leave.
Lube Tech (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – July 29, 2015
Busy days from start to finish. Have learned how to be professional with customers as well as management. Some co-workers are harder to work with than others but we all get along together. The hardest part of the job is working in the heat. I most enjoy all the different model vehicles I am exposed to on a daily basis.
It was a positive work environment and the most satisfying job I have had so far.
Regional Operations Administrator (Former Employee) – Garden Grove, CA – August 12, 2013
I was an Administrative Coordinator and so I had to help with entering the Sales Orders for the Sales Representatives when the phones became to heavy for them to enter them. I worked with the Warehouse in getting out rushed shipments or changes on the order, open of the office, and greet all visitors. What I learned is how to deal with all kinds of solicitors. As for management I felt that I was learning from the best and the same with my coworkers. The hardest part of the job was when I had to work 7 days in a row. But the most enjoyable part of my job was the work environment.
Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) – Hebron, KY – February 18, 2013
Gates is a warehouse job. My job is to pick orders & send them off to the customers. I got trained on a trugger jack & im certified. The management there is great & the co-workers are also. The hardest part of the job is picking up heavy items. The most enjoyable part of the day is getting off work!
Picker/ packer (Former Employee) – Florence, KY – January 15, 2014
There are quite a few discrepancies with this company. There is many problems with a drama filled work area. There are no ways to express your problems with this and if you do you will be laid off. There is good work flow but other than that not a very good working enviornment.
