Production Opr (Former Employee) – Huron, OH – May 2, 2016
I enjoyed the time I did put into work at IAC. I learned a lot about an always changing work place, and working with people from all different kinds of back grounds. I found things to be challenging and learned them quickly. There is a lot over overtime, and excellent benefits.
Operator (Current Employee) – Strasburg, VA – April 1, 2016
This company has a Union that looks after the best interests of the workers and gives them a voice. The schedule is very good. (6-2, 7-3, 3-11, and so on) It gives you opportunity to work around a family schedule or have a second job. There is occasionally a possibility of a senior worker "bumping" you onto a different shift though, but its not often that this happens. Also, they ensure your scheduling if you are a student. They do lay-offs for a week at a time here and there though but some people can claim unemployment benefits and be okay financially. Depending on the plant you are in the break times can be two tens and a twenty minute lunch. Its all production so you will most likely be doing a repetitive action all day. Like stapling vinyl or assembling vehicle consoles. The co-workers can be gossipy but generally everyone pairs up or has a group they break with or chat with all day. Sometimes this can be stressful but other times it could turn out to be a good group that works well together. A typical day is clocking in a little early, putting your lunch in the fridge, going to your station, preparing any tools you may need, talking with co-workers or not, and beginning work. Every two hours you brake. Then a couple minutes before leave time you'll clean up or go smoke then clock out and leave. They have it so the traffic is low flow at these times, how they did that was scheduling. Some get off at two some at three. Managers are okay there are many supervisors you get to know them if you want to and 50/50 they're personable people. Theres hard jobs and easy jobs. Easymore... jobs get boring hard jobs are hard jobs.less
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) – Belvidere, IL – March 15, 2016
We don't have a lot to worry about on line as long as we meet minimum requirements. Which, unfortunately, bothers me. I like to work harder than most people and I want our line to move as fast as possible and exceed production requirements. However, line workers, and even management, are ok with the minimum, so I am stuck to suffer, waiting for everyone else around me to finish their work so I can continue mine on the next component.
Its only a matter of time before they go out of business
Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Anniston, AL – March 1, 2016
No one can stay in business doing the things that are being done there. The sad part is that the majority of the people have seen the same company go through various buyouts so they don't care to see it go through another. They don't care to improve or do any more work than they have to.
extremly unethical and sexist management from the Plant Manager to the HR Manager.
As long as you do your job and show up, it's a great job!
Operator (Current Employee) – Dayton, TN – February 26, 2016
As long as you come to work every day, on time, and do your job, it's a great place to work. Overtime is almost always available, so the potential to make great money is there. I support my wife, two kids, and myself on this job with no other income. All of the supervisors are great and really easy to get along with.

Molding operator (Current Employee) – Alma, MI – November 14, 2015
Typical day as a molding operator, press down or secondary down. Arrogant unprofessional, first and third shift supervisors. Negative atmosphere, many guys running around like they are still in high school, goofing off and not working. This company wastes a lot of money on unproductive people not doing their job. Probably wouldn't have to be forced to work early or over if people did their jobs keeping the presses running.
Make a lot of money with overtime, union job and decent health coverage
Production Associate (Current Employee) – Anniston, AL – August 13, 2015
New management Team that yells and screams a lot. No job security. The operations manager fires people at will with no reason. The HR manager is very weak. The place is a sweat box. Stay clear! They really need a Union!!!
operator (Current Employee) – Dayton tn – July 10, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is going home. IAC has more medications passing through here than Walgreen's. Of course it's unprescribed.This is more of a quantity company than quality.Management is very uncooperative and unprofessional. Faulty machines are accidents waiting to happen. 7 days a week getting PAID for downtime and no production because of lack of parts. If you aren't a suck up you might as well give up! Quality is not a priority it's all about quantity
no one cares about anything but numbers. your down more than you work.never get a day off
I.T. Administrator (Former Employee) – Alma, MI – March 25, 2015
This company was a very tough high stressed place to work. I was the only one in charge of IT for nearly 300 people for all 3 shifts. This company ran 24/7. A lot of weekend work was required. Being on call 24/7 was nightmare of a headache. The work environment was awful. The management was awful. The co-workers i worked with were not very nice. This was my first job out of college so i did learn a ton. I did have a lot support from corporate IT. It was a very busy day everyday.
Corporate IT Support always available for help. Learned a lot about IT
