Very safe enviroment , but not a place where you can advance.
customer service (Current Employee), Fort Mill, SC – February 19, 2014
Pros: good benifits and very safe envioroment
Cons: poor management and procedures
Data entry and phone calls and too many emails. Great place to start out for corporate setting. Management is too over loaded with work which leads to bad team dynamics etc. Hardest part of the job is putting in 100% and it leading to no where. I enjoy my coworkers the most.
Senior Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Evans, GA – September 12, 2013
Pros: paid holidays, 3 wks vacations, companny contribute to 401k
Cons: high benefit premiums
A typical day for me at work is I enjoying talking to different people all over the world. I have the pleasure of taking care of their daily issues with our company from, checking stock, placing orders, tracking orders or getting a part submitted to be quoted. The interaction with our customers is what I enjoy most. I have worked with about 60 people – more... in the same department for over 10 years until we downsized in 2009. Regardless if it was 60 CSR's or 15 CSR's, we have always been like a second family to each other and have the upmost respect for each other. I enjoy working at a place that is like hanging out with family for 8 to 10 hours. The hardest part of my job is not being able to take care of the customer at their convenience, this could be because of many reasons, but to name a few would be because, we are out of stock or their order is lost by UPS. – less
warehouse 2 (Current Employee), Cleveland, OH – July 6, 2013
Pros: pay, free lunches
Cons: management, long hours, never know what time you get off, treated like children
I loved working there for the first couple of years..but then I just start going down hill. When they let certain people become leads.They have turned the place upside down.They don't know what their doing. They put unbelievable amounts of pressure to reach 50 lines a hour which is outrageous they don't value our opinions.
1. Very busy, productive, 2. Be on your toes, things always change. 3. insured that we did our jobs, inforced safty, 4. Worked well with most of them. 5. Standing in one place stacking bags. 6. crew worked well together.
Receiving Clerk (Former Employee), Bentonville, AR – March 18, 2013
Pros: being in charge and dealing with customers
Cons: inventory was hard
I worked alot of hours I loved meeting new people. I learned how to do the books and deal with even the unpleasent people. I got along with everyone that I came in contact with. The hardest part of the job was telling people what to do. The second hardest part was when they came and and said they sold out and we were without a job
Account Manager (Current Employee), Fort Mill, SC – October 29, 2012
Pros: great benefits
Cons: hq are in pa
I work in a tight team and we support each other unconditionally. Kennametal offers constant training. I was giving a huge opportunity as a participant in a SixSigma event. It's one of my proudest accomplishments. I would like to have more time to dedicate to it... It's very interesting and rewarding, however it can impact my daily activities and the – more... rhythm of the team.
Super great benefits, they make sure you understand all the information within each benefit package offered. I like the fact that I can have an extra week vacation once I turn 3 in the company. I think all companies should have this. It's something to look forward to.
The HQ are in PA and that can be career limiting for the ones that want to move and be promoted into new challenges.
Wire Coiler (Current Employee), Goshen, IN – September 23, 2012
Pros: could take a break when wanted. treated with respect
Cons: its a 45 minute drive to work.
A day starts out from last shift employees telling how their shift went. While working there I learned how to be more productive and to work on my own equipment. The management comes out and gets to know the employees as people and treats everyone with respect. The co workers treat each other as family and all team players. The hardest part of the job – more... was when a customer wanted a order out a day earlier than scheduled and had to rush more to get it finished. What I enjoyed most was everyone was respectful and was able to work at my own pace and still got my work done ahead of time. – less
