Fine Job Fair Treatment, difficult to advance from low level positions
Undisclosed (Current Employee) – Melville, NY – January 19, 2018
Without management experience or education it is very difficult to be promoted in this business. Experience often will not qualify you for a higher position and executive position are often external hires.
Picker and packer (Current Employee) – 96 isidor ct – January 2, 2018
they don let the employees not even talk. Lack of advance bad training or not training at all. Good co-worker's but everyone with a sad face. There's no even a vending machine where to get water bottles.
Warehouse department lead (Current Employee) – Lebanon, TN – January 2, 2018
My experience working at Leviton was the middle of the road. Great supervisors, benefifts, and work was never too difficult. The pressure they put on their floor staff in most cases is very hard to obtain and there is always the threat of being terminated.
Quality Assurance Technician (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – December 31, 2017
I enjoyed working at Leviton, just about ten years. They like pro active employees. The coworker environment, is relaxed and friendly. Management, and Human resources are helpful when employees need time off to take care of personal matters.
Bad projects, bad management, your skills will dull working here
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Bothell, WA – December 21, 2017
Quality control and manufacturing practices make it sketchy for design engineers to do their job. Management doesn't know how to advance people and the salary is very low given the area. Benefits are adequate at best- there is a reason no one with young kids works at this location. Maybe in 1980 this was a good company to work for, but it hasn't kept up with the times.
Administrative Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Lebanon, TN 37090 – October 3, 2017
I was told at my last employee review that although I was a model employee there was no opportunity for advancement in that position. The daily struggle to deal with the ego of HR pair with very small pay raises lead me to seek alternate employment.
Was a great place, but after several corporate restructures, it wasn't
Senior Electromechanical Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Eastlake, CA – September 27, 2017
In the beginning and through most of my time there, the work was creative and fun, pay was decent and the staff was very professional with good synergy. We built a good team of designers, engineers and technicians for our product line. Toward the end of my employment the company was hit hard by a recession and staff reductions became the norm, as well as other corporate restructuring. Our local culture suffered a massive drop in morale and management lost sight of employee needs and development as well as the product quality and specifications. The focus became the bottom line and grinding out products that did not sell. Staff was cut to one quarter but development schedules were not adjusted. The highest paid and skilled engineers were laid off and unqualified members of our department were assigned tasks above their skill levels or abilities. Some staff members rose to the occasion but the occasions became more frequent and when the staff members could not resolve issues they were reprimanded. Eventually, the entire staff quit and the division was closed because it could not meet it's mission.
Department Industrial Mechanic (Former Employee) – Morganton, NC – September 11, 2017
Overall Leviton Manufacturing is a great place to work they pay well for around Morganton area and offer good benefits. The workers that work there are like a big family and are great to work with. Management treats the workers like prisoners instead of employees and have made many poor decisions for the company.
its so hard to understand people English from other country's ether they don't understand you or they understand wrong.
Assembler/Production (Current Employee) – Bothell, WA – July 24, 2017
Its not so bad, but just the management is so picky for the salary that the company is paying. The Lead has no people skills always in a bad mood there"s no privacy on any conversation you have with the lead as soon as your done talking a minute later everyone knows your business.
Absolutely hated this job. The supervisor was a good guy, but the mechanic and several others I worked with were horrible, and even after several complaints, they would get by with it. I hate loud noises so I constantly had a headache. The company expects you to dedicate your life to the job, so you'll hardly ever get to see your family, and when you do, you'll be almost to tired to enjoy it before going into work literally the next day or night. Nothing you do will ever be good enough in their eyes. The benefits were great. 401K and pay. All great. But, money won't buy me time back with my family, and almost all of your time will be spent there or sleeping.
Account Manager/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Tualatin, OR – April 12, 2017
Leviton has its fingers in all elements of electrical product manufacturing, from light switches and outlets you find at Home Depot to the construction-grade dimming and relay systems I worked with. I can't speak for other departments, but the internal politics at my location were detrimental to morale. At one point, I was nearly fired because I "made mistakes", and was eventually let go primarily because I was the most expensive person in my department.
Great place for entry-level manufacturing employees
Senior Director (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – January 14, 2017
Worked for the company for 5+ years. Nice culture fun people. Company has strong brand reputation and 110 year old history. Ownership very conservative and all decision making is with a handful of people. Company goes as well as electrical distribution channel. The hardest part of the job is realizing you have no say in business decisions and that it takes (at least) a VP to make a decision. If you want to do something that has not been done before you need to get a family member to endorse or you will be out on an island. Enjoyed my time there and great people. Nice place to start or end career!
Great people, never laughed more in a professional setting
Decision making with a handful of people, often need family member endorsement.
