Analyst (Former Employee) – Fuquay-Varina, NC – July 19, 2017
slow environment, great people, there wasn't many opportunities where I was but I don't think that is consistent across the company. My manager was almost always gone. There was a nice gym on site as well.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Grovetown, GA – July 9, 2017
Typical day started out meeting with shop floor technicians and telling them the day's goals for production and discussing the previous day's quality status. Throughout the day troubleshoot computer and parts issues, assist manufacturing engineers with tooling and issue as required. Assist Quality engineers with part quality issues and deviations if required. Management was fine with differing levels of micro-management, seems like it was going to be good with new leadership. I learned candor is not always appreciated and I learned that not everyone is your friend on the floor. The hardest part of the job was dealing with day-to-day part issues. The best part was working with the people and seeing the completed machines roll off the end ofthe line.

Warehouse Laborer (Former Employee) – Milan, IL – July 3, 2017
I answered an ad for forklift driver, was hired, and then was told how much better being an order picker would be. I had to train to be an order picker and then was told there was no guarantee I would get a forklift driver position! I also had to pay union dues, but was told I would get no representation!
This job offers an opportunity for student that need a flexible schedule. As well as an easy going staff.However, their is some areas that need to review. As in the management team, it is completely inexperienced with no communication skills.
Assembly Technician (Current Employee) – Davenport, IA – June 29, 2017
An average workday depends on what department you work in, some are fast and some are slow. A lot of teamwork is involved in most places. Not a lot of room for advancement on the union side. When you have good people to work with it makes the job easier to do. Working here you learn how to fix your own problems often.
Forklift/ Picker/ Packer (Former Employee) – Rock Island, IL – June 29, 2017
I worked for john deere for 5 months total and had been hired by a outside staffing agency. They told me I had a 1 year contract but, ended a few months into the job. This is the only negative thing I have to say about the position. Overall it was a good experience. My supervisor was a great guy and helped me whenever needed.
Very laid back culture but still adamant on getting the job done
Manufacturing Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Milan, IL – June 29, 2017
A typical work day is very laid back. You learn a lot of transferable skills. Management is very relaxed but still expect you to get your work done. Workplace culture is very open and diverse depending on which location you work at. The hardest part of the job is finding the right expert on certain skills for software/ programming. Not everyone is an expert at these fields. Most enjoyable part of the job is bonding with co-workers.
Assembler (Former Employee) – Horicon, WI – June 29, 2017
My typical day would consist of building anywhere between 30-70 gators. I have learned to a gator is built, how to use power tools, and how to assemble different things. Management is great, if they don't know an answer they are always willing to find out for you. The hardest part of the job was trying to take what I was trained to assemble and learning how to do it differently as I am on the shorter side. I would have to say that learning how to build all the different types of gators and seeing them being assembled from the start of the line to the end was the most enjoyable part of this job.
