Machine Operator (Former Employee), Suffield, CTMarch 18, 2015
Pros: owner at first
Cons: very hot work place
make bullets for the extruders. People did not help one another. They were for themselves only. Management was great till company was taking over. At that time things were hard, cutting back, head hunters this puts unnecessary pressure in the work place.

not a good place to work
shipping and recieving (Former Employee), Suffield, CTFebruary 27, 2015
I worked there through a temp agency. I worked there for about 5 months before I was offered a job. before they offered me this job they decided to direct hire someone else. this place will take advantage of you. I would not suggest working there. the "department leads" don't know how to do their jobs half the time, and have no problem passing blame to others. just an overall bad place to work.

Excessive mandatory overtime (60+ hours) weekly. Mid-grade management, low base pay ($8.50 hr).
Forklift Operator/Warehousing (Former Employee), Milan, TNFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: lots of hours available. 10-12 hrs 6 days a week.
Cons: not a friendly environment, management is lacking.
Not the worst job out there, but by far not the best either. If you are single, the money and hours are good. Forklift work, easy as can be. Line work gets hectic, and is very fast paced.

Innovation was key
Key Account Sales Manager (Former Employee), sarasota, flAugust 14, 2013
Pros: always exciting, never a dull moment.
During my time with Kongsberg Automotive, I branched out of my sales role and did everything I could to understand all areas of the company. From planning, creating and displaying expositions at international venues to assisting in facilities audits, I wanted to act like a sponge to sop up all the experiences I could. Most of my days consisted of traveling to customers for visits which included analyzing any current issues they were having while offering our diverse product line to new and current platforms. With the assistance of my coworkers I learned about all realms of vehicle platforms by using each others strengths to constantly challenge the group. With the support and direction of my management team, I know as long as I tried my hardest, failure was never an option. During my tenure at KA, I found my sales voice and for that I am forever grateful.

Prodictive
Assembler/Machine Operator, Quality Inspector (Former Employee), Easley, SCJuly 25, 2013
Pros: 30 minute breaks, easy workers, nice supervisiors
Cons: 10 minute breaks, difficult people to work with, downtime
A typical day would be come in have everyday meeting in front of cork board. Then go to center get everything set up make sure we have a accepted first piece. After approved we begin running in our cell with saftey and quailty first. The management was very good if we had questions about parts or anything releating to workflow we got answers. Most co-workers were easy and realiable to work with. I would have to say the hardest part of the job was not the work only if there was issues with the parts or machines that made us have downtime. And if you have down time your not making parts to hit production. My most enjoyable part of my job was i loved what i did i knew so much and just something that i would like to continue doing.
