Accounts Payable/Receptionist (Former Employee), Monroe, GA – August 12, 2014
I enjoyed working for Leggett & Platt. I appreciate the experience and I loved my co-workers. A typical day for me included getting all mail prepared for pick up and separating mail that was delivered. Answering incoming calls. Coding all inter company and trade invoices for payment. occasional billing. processed all C.O.D's that came in. The hardest – more... part of my job was at the end of every month (period end) but at the same time was my favorite part because I guess I loved the challenge of accruing all unpaid invoices for the month and all other reports that I had to do and having a certain time to have this done. I loved my job and the responsibilty it required of me. – less
Great place to work, Upper management would reward employees with food days and free drink days.
Recruiter/Logistics Compliance Specialist (Former Employee), Carthage, MO – August 4, 2014
Pros: treated as person not a number. free lunches, drinks & ice cream days. stability
Love the work environment and my job. The pay was not that competitive however, the benefits were great. Upper management was very helpful and geared towards working as a team. The job I had busy fast paced and at times a challenge but I loved it. What I have learned is too be patient, change takes time.

Pros: not many schedule changes & benefits
Cons: the inside of trucks were sometimes extremely hot
Loading & unloading semi's. Learned the bedding industry procedures. great management & co-workers .The hardest part was trying not to keep getting cut from product. Most enjoyed the steadiness of the schedule.
Billing Administrator (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CA – June 9, 2014
I loved working here but as time passed I was given more dutiesand not being compensated, I allowed this to happen for almost a year and a half until I had enough. The promises that were made to me never happened and I had to move on.
Many memories and many duties. Many friends almost like family.
Safety Coordinator (Current Employee), Dallas, Tx – May 28, 2014
Pros: off by 4pm, sat and sun off
Cons: short break, communication
When I get into work in the morning, first thing I do is check the e-mails on my Outlook Inbox. Then I go over my event planner and see what following events or appointments are coming up. I then do my safety walk through of our production plant, receiving, shipping, and office area and check for any violations (exit signs, fire extinguishers, tripping – more... hazards, PPE, safety signs, etc.). I then log in and write down my findings on an hourly basis. If it's the day for weekly fire extinguisher(62)/ eye wash station(8)/ exit sign check(23), I conduct this and write down my findings. If it is end of month, I do a riveter damage check(27), and safety supply room inventory. If we have a new hire that day, I train them Safety and OSHA wise. I may have to duplicate a form or flow chart and add or remove items on these forms. At this company I have learned how to work a manual press, automatic press, learned how to pack 1300 bed frames in one day. I learned how to type, microsoft office, how to make appointments, how to train, how to fax and scan, how to conduct Internal Audits, and how to conduct Inventory on raw material and finnished goods. I use a forklift when necessary to move material or machines. Management conducts meetings or BMP's. I am fortunate that my manager opened the door and put his trust and faith in me to become a Safety Coordinator. We have around 80 employees and Im happy to say I am friends with each one of them. I can also say that they are hard workers. I would have to say the hardest part of my job is doing something for the first time. That nervousness and wanting so much to do it right gets me, but as soon as I complete the task, I am so happy to conduct it again!! The most enjoyable part of my job is realizing how far I've come and much more I can accomplish!! – less
Senior Accounting Lead (Former Employee), Stone Mountain Georgia – April 29, 2014
Pros: personable people. growth was encouraged.
Very busy but great place to work. Everyone was friendly and was able to learn a lot pertaining to several different departments. Growth was encouraged. The hardest part was having to work very late nights sometimes but only once a month.
Operator (Current Employee), Carthage, Mo – April 23, 2014
Pros: free cookouts, bonuses, holiday pays and vacations
Cons: short breaks
Do different things each week, I learned to operate and work on the machine at the same time(operator tech). Manage to operate two machines at a time, and work with very kind colleagues.
The hardest part of my job is when I see my colleagues are not pulling their weight as the way they should and can't control the down time. But the most enjoyable – more... part is pretty much everything, will document everything you do when your down, working on your own with a less supervise as long as you do your part. – less
Labor (Former Employee), York, PA – February 3, 2014
Pros: making good money
a typical day here was doing the same thing over and over each day I worked on an assembly line got real god at it n was making some good money cause it was piece rate I learned how to work together as a team n help each other out to make that good money
Horrible management, , poor work conditions, people lie to your face
worker (Former Employee), dallas – January 7, 2014
Cons: unsafe work conditions abound
Management was inexperienced, safety a complete joke, trying to fix broken machines with other broken parts, low pay, backstabbing coworkers. Not a good place to work if you value your health or safety.
Electrician (Current Employee), Fort Worth – December 8, 2013
Pros: good benefits, decent pay
Cons: psycotic supervisor
My department manager is verbally abusive and not professional at all. Due to the managers style this is by far the worst place I have ever worked. Other than that, most of the people are nice and its not bad.
