Unrewarding and Dangerous Work Environment
Manager (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaSeptember 25, 2015
They have a few top tier customers left, but they are dwindling due to the lost focus of the upper management. They manage through fear and intimidation. It was apparently well run under ownership of Edgcomb and Macsteel, but they kept the apple polishing group under the kinley type model. The hourly employees were great in helping and understanding, but the top level pressures for a business paradigm that doesn't fit the physical model, made it an unsupportable and adverse work environment. They aren't efficient at managing inventory which makes safety a real concern. I did enjoy learning all of the customers though.
Pros
The senior warehouse employees helped in learning.
Cons
Presidents and Regional boss are out of touch

Inside Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCAugust 21, 2015
Worst entry level job possible. Terrible work environment, un-qualified managers and questionable morals. Left after an unresolved harassment claim and no guidance or direction from management. They couldn't keep someone in the position.

Unpredictive but very much knowledge and discipline to gain within.
Machine Operator/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZApril 13, 2015
Every day was an opportunity to learn something new if willing. Many areas of work that have the same contribution to the job. Expectations were high. Safety was lectured daily for the job could be dangerous without the right approach. Benefits and pay were pleasing. Knowing co workers on an outside personal level created conflict of interest. But loved the knowledge and experience I gained.
Pros
Benefits, pay
Cons
Nothing just working with immediate family can be the wrong fit.

Production Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZDecember 17, 2014
I spend my day optimizing work performance practices and working side by side with my fellow employees to meet the changing needs of the customer. We produce high quality products with strict tolerances for the solar, computer and housing markets. We are a lean manufacturing company who produces a high level of tons with very low scrap rates. Customer service oriented ISO-9001 and 5s plant.

Awful working conditions
Driver (Former Employee) –  Austin, TexasAugust 26, 2014
I hope you like eating dust, unreal expectations during your 12 hour shift - and the possibility of getting injured/ seriously everyday! I'm sure there are good parts of the company somewhere, but my observations were limited to one location.
Pros
account managers and office manager
Cons
awful working conditions - unreal expectations on the job - high turnover.
