Construction Laborer (Former Employee) – Lugoff, SC – February 12, 2017
A typical day at work starts around 6:30 am. I learned a lot of different skills working at this plant. The management is great and easy to get along with. The culture is very diverse. The hardest part of the job was being outside in the elements during construction work. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the crew I was with.
I have nothing to say typical day not enough help. The TL nick pick until you quit or get fired. you will get terminated for just about anything . don't care if your are an excellent employee. Their are no incentives. Christmas or Thanksgiving you don't get anything. Nothing to show the employees that the company care.

Do not work for this company, this company is by far the worst company I've worked for. Trust me, I've worked for this company and found out the hard way! The management and HR do not care anything about the employees nor are they there to back or support the employees! The management talks and treat their employees like animal they just can abuse however they want to because they know HR will not do anything to them and also if you do talk to HR and management finds out, they will retaliate against you. They will try to find any little thing to get rid of you or hang for for any little mistake! You would be better off working for Walmart or McDonald's then working for this company.

Retaliation DOES take place but they (management as well as HR) can always mask it as something else. There fore there is no question as to why they would have to let you go. You can't trust a one of them. You always have to watch your back. You will be lied to in front of your face. You can take numerous breaks when ever you want as long as you Want. If you are a smoker you can head right outside the backdoor anytime and as much as you like. Management just looks the other way. You can stream music, watch videos, walk around texting on your phone, even cat nap if you will. No expectations. No one is held accountable for their time and work ethic. All you have to say is your all covered up. This company has a big turn over. People come get trained then leave to go to a better company with better pay and room to grow.
All you have to do is show up
No incentives, no bonus, no overtime, work is pushed on the workers, No support, No credit where credit is due
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Wichita, KS – October 14, 2016
INVISTA has been through a great deal of change. The current climate is not great due to the tough business conditions and everyone is feeling the squeeze. This presents a great opportunity to change and grow the company, but it is at the expense of the employees who are at times overworked, underpaid, and generally unhappy.
The company offers a great deal of opportunity and advancement for those who stick it out, but one of the biggest gripes most individuals have is Wichita, rather than INVISTA as there just is not much to do to unwind from a hectic day at work.
Strong Emphasis on Culture (MBM), Great Learning Opportunities, Travel
Work/Life Balance, Employee Morale, Compensation slightly under market
As an engineer/intern, you spend the first few weeks out with the maintenance personnel learning about the equipment and duties of the staff. The other engineers and people you work with were fantastic and always willing to help and assist.
When I got to Invista it was a great place to be. Lately the rules and procedures have changed and management has been horrible. All problems fall onto employees and we cant defend ourselves over management. So before they decide to just get rid of you. Find another career.
pay. 7 days off (if no forced overtime)
Management. Cant leave for lunch.. lots of forced overtime.. lack of management skills
operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – December 14, 2016
worked there 7 years, good job, good money, then closed plant for all but a handful of people and we were out the door? With no feeling of secure future, wouldn't want to go there not knowing if I am wasting years for nothing
My overall rating on this company would be 4 stars. The work is not hard. A typical day at work is at least 5 out of the 10 positions that Im resaponsible for break. I troubleshoot all day or night long. I've learned a lot of diy. Management turnover rate is not good. Co workers are good have an excellent team working environment. Hardest part of the job is during lunch when your work load go from 10 positions to 20, and they are running pretty bad. My most enjoyable is when you worked 12 hours and have between 1-5 breaks all night. What a good night.
this was a wonderful job. the work hours were ok but i felt there was some management issues that could have been better. there was always a failure to communicate vital information and numerous employees were lazy and should have been fired years ago
Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – October 17, 2016
More delightful and better atmosphere and better conversations with co workers A typical day would be coming in hearing what went on that day or night better relief and understanding conversations with co workers
I worked from home and had a 3 state territory. I learned that I am very good at presenting product and technical training. My co-workers were great and we worked as a team. The culture was outstanding and very supportive. The hardest part of the job was trying to educate the employees on why our carpet fiber was superior to that of our competition. I truly enjoyed building the relationships with my clients and their families.
Beam Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Athens, GA – November 13, 2016
Everyone was willing to help, when needed. Teamwork was pnemonal. Management listen and helpout when needed. It wasn't alot of pressure, yes, you may have some bad days, but, the people helped it get better.
