Unpreditable hours
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Fordsville, KYApril 9, 2017
At our plant our hours are very unpredictable. From one day to the next its a guessing game on when your getting off, therefore making it difficult to plan anything outside of work, especially if you have children. Management seems to keep it a secret 30 minutes till quitting time. You might work 5 hours one day, then work overtime & Saturdays the next. Management (team leaders) take advantage of there workers also, favortism is bad too. Best things are vacation days, benefits & there open door policy. Very family oriented compared to other companies I have worked with.
Pros
Vacation days, family oriented, benefits
Cons
Short breaks, unpredictable hours

Never know how long you are working, drama, and a rigged production system
Upholster (Former Employee) –  Danville, KYJanuary 31, 2017
Just don't..... Most people can only take it for a few months. That's why they have to hire so many people every other month. National office is a bad place to work
Pros
Pay
Cons
Everything else

Efficient and Productive workplace
CNC Operator (Former Employee) –  Jasper, INJanuary 31, 2017
A relaxed environment that can truly produce.
Typically 40 hour work weeks.
A strong supporting team that will accept you right away.
Excellent management that will work with you should you need time off or support in a work related or non work related state, they need you there but they need you to be happy for the long term.

Great place to work now that drama is gone
Upholsterer (Current Employee) –  Martinsville, VANovember 3, 2016
Only been with kimball 2 years and have seen a lot of high school drama. Management has gotten a lot of those people out of here and are making it a much better place to work. I use to dread coming in because of having to listen to the sorry ones who live such miserable lives, but now I really enjoy it. They try to make work fun and enjoyable. Getting rid of the ones who brought the place down was the best thing they could have done.

Upholster (Former Employee) –  Kimalball hospitality Martinsville VaJuly 12, 2016
Management on power trip...especially HR manager. Management talks and treat you like children. If employee ask questions or voice their opinion they get treatment unfairly....so they don't say anything...they are afraid of losing their job. If an employee gets on bad side of management they are fired . CEO doesn't know how management in Martinsville plant treats their employees.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Management treats employyes unfairly

High school all over again.
upholstery (Former Employee) –  Danville, KYDecember 30, 2015
Most management and floor workers gossip constantly.
Pay is alright for what it is.
You never know how long you're working. One day you can go home early because there is no work and the next you could stay over and extra on Saturdays.
Quality and craftsmanship is poor.
Don't expect to be able to go to the bathroom and be able to make their productivity expectations. Which are unrealistic for new comers, they will let you go in a heartbeat instead of trying to see if you'll work well somewhere else.
Pros
Vacation days
Cons
Short breaks drama no bonus bad management
