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 – more... 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. – less

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 – more... 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. – less

Assembly worker (Former Employee), Benton, LAJuly 16, 2012
I liked the job because I, along with my former co-workers, built power parts for lawn equipment. What I didn't was the pay. I was only getting paid $7.25 an hour. I also didn't like the negativity coming from one of my supervisors.

Company was good to work for under the Norland Plastics umbrella. a
Front End Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Haysville, KSMay 6, 2012
Pros: able to advanced in company, holidays/ giveaway turkeys
Cons: poor management after being bought out.
Norland Plastics was a good place to work. I started as a machine operator and worked there for almost 14 years before closing its doors.Through the years I was able to advance to different positions throughout the company. Starting out as a machine operator and ending as a front end floor lead. Each advancement took on more responsibilities. After – more... Norland was bought out by Kongsberg Automotive and new management took over the atmosphere of the work place change. Due to poor management. Even though things changed I still enjoyed working with the people that I had worked with for 14 years. I learned a lot in the area of manufacturing and what is expected of an employee. I worked 10 years on 3rd shift and 4yrs on days. Hardest part of job was writing up people and keeping it non personnel. I truly enjoyed the people I worked with and learning different things especially Quality Control. – less
