Resident housekeeping Assistant/ on call nanny (Former Employee) – Palm Beach, FL – January 16, 2015
A typical day at the job was never like any other. Constantly changed. Worked for a private company and their needs always changed. They always had high expectations of each worker and your effort was never appreciated. Working with coworkers were great everyone worked in a team. The hardest part of the job was never being able to please the boss, she complained about everything. Working in teams were encouraged but never mandatory which I loved very much.
Very rewarding!!!! I learned how to do and work with custom cabinetry. I was the spray painter/stainer. I worked on all the high end cabinetry. The Supervisor in my area was great to work for, he was very helpful and stern at times. We all worked as a team together in the paint room wish made a day at work easy to get through. The hardest part of my job was to fix mistakes that happened in other parts of the factory. I loved seeing the finished product and see all the artistry that went into completing them and knowing I was a part of that!!!!

Paint Room Laborer/Drawer Front Organizer (Current Employee) – Hiawatha, KS – August 16, 2013
The work hours at Koch are 730-4pm. You learn a lot and are treated good. The management is pretty good as well and so are the co-workers for the most part. The factory gets really hot during the summer but it's nothing unbearable. They would even sometimes come around with popcicles to reward us. They have 401k, vacation time, medical insurance, life insurance, and cafeteria plan. Good place to work for.
Cabinet Line Worker (Current Employee) – Seneca, KS – August 27, 2014
Paperwork starts the day. As the machine operator begins, I "catch" the parts cut on a laser guided saw. Sort sizes, and stack them onto carts. Each species and profile make one order( ex: shaker and standard... cherry, birch, oak). Small rubber pieces are inserted into the groove of the parts to help shim up the door panel. The cart is then sent on to its next stage.
