Great career for those wanting to work!
Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYJanuary 2, 2018
Genova is a fabulous production career for anyone that wants to work hard. This job has so much growth and potential for the employees that are eager to be a part of a company and grow. Genova is not like most production facilities in the sense that it does have 12hr shifts however, you work two days on and then two days off working every other weekend.

The management here is very reasonable, especially if you show up on time and work and show you are interested in being here at Genova. Don’t be fooled, just because you look after machines and think this is a relaxing job, it’s also a growing company and the more effort you throw in, the more you will get noticed. The more you communicate the more you will learn and stand out. Genova is a growing company and strives for a better working environment every day with great employees!
Pros
Holidays off, point system, great management, fast growing company
Cons
Point system (if you don’t show up to work or communicate)

Technician (Former Employee) –  Paducah, KYNovember 2, 2017
The work environment is an employee morale nightmare. Management is poor due to excessive micromanagement and encouraging dissidence among works and other members of management.

Worst job everrrrr
Operator (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYJune 6, 2017
They want way too much done for $10 an hour. 12 hour shifts every other weekend doing mindnumbing work, going home with every part of your body too sore to do anything on your days off

Great place to work and grow with the company.
Die Setter (Current Employee) –  Paducah, KYNovember 23, 2016
Genova in Kentucky is a growing company with a lot of potential for advancement. The company is family owed which is a plus. Management is the best of any company I have ever worked for. Every day there is something new to learn which is a plus for most people. I would recommend this company to any prospects that are looking for a stable job. The insurance is a big plus.
Pros
Great management, steady hours, great benifits
Cons
None

Toxic Workplace
Plant Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Faribault, MNApril 9, 2016
The overall morale at this plant is bad. Not only have the general labor not received raises in 7 years but the management is unconnected to there employees.

There is no continuous improvement, the upper management staff are inconstant and there is no communication. Issues brought to the table are over looked and forgotten about.

The plants turnover rate is very high, bad management runs out good employees and that is what happens here.
Pros
There are none.
Cons
The company doesn't show that they care about there employees.

good co-workers
Maintenance (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INMarch 20, 2016
still operating as if this where 1970, micro managed from the corporate office. no communication between workers (the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing) low level supervisors and leads have a standing policy of managing through fear. giving up part of your personal time to the company is expected. pay is below the prevailing wages.
Pros
most of the floor workers are good people
Cons
to many to list

Cons
when hired not all important information was provided about hours and work shift

Not a bad place until it shut down
Extrusion Die Setter/Industrial Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hazleton, PAFebruary 11, 2014
Less stressfull than some operator jobs. No mandatory OT. Typical benefits for the plants around here. Slightly higher pay. The best palce was you got to take your vacations when you wanted and there was no mandatory OT. If you wanted it there was lots to be had. But you were never forced. High turnover though.
