management is horrible. from humsn resources to plant manager to production manager to shift supervisor
laborer (Former Employee) – Bowling Green, KY – December 1, 2015
Don't go to third shift. Egotistical arrogant lazy fake Christian acting supervisor. Bowling green KY management is horrible. If you don't get under the desk you wont move up no matter how hard you work. They over hire and then fire people for anything. Hr is worthless, they can't keep a plant manager, the production manager is way over paid and the shift supervisors are clueless of the production operations and machines, and the team leads are lazy who didn't get their job by working hard. Maintenance sucks too
Great place to work flexible 8 hrs. I worked from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm
Electronics Technologist, Harness and Test (Former Employee) – Cary, NC – November 11, 2015
Worked with some great people. Some not so. Luck of the draw for your manager.Expectations of technicians is beyond capabilities sometimes.Sometimes involved with 4 or more projects a day as someone else has a new requirement. The 2 to 3 hours in the morning before any one else showed up is when I got most of my scheduled work done. The rest of the day was dealing with all the requests that were constantly arising.

They hire good people and provide above-average benefits. Flexible and friendly work environment, especially for technical professionals. I was never micromanaged or treated unprofessionally in any way. Lots of emphasis on innovation; if you come up with something new and different and it sells, you may have a job for life.
Product Operator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – August 25, 2015
A typical day at Lord Corporation is a lot of lifting, standing, squatting, twisting, pulling and walking. The hardest part about the job is not knowing what your day will be like when you come in. It's a challenge but I enjoy the challenges because I like to see if I can overcome them. It's a small facility so it's really family oriented and that's what I like about it. I've learned how to be more personal with people and more approachable. Lord is not a bad place to work at, I just don't want to keep putting wear and tear on my body. I've been doing this type of work for ten years now. I would say it's really starting to catch up with me.
Benefits, medical, 401K, short commute
Too much lifiting and pulling, alot of wear and tear on the body
Mechanical Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Erie, PA – June 30, 2015
Lord Corporation is an amazing company to work for. The Senior Engineers are very patient and are willing to teach. Management gives opportunity and shows trust in those that deserve it. The typical day involves working with customers and fellow coworkers for product design, running FEA analysis' using Inventor Pro and ANSYS, as well as traveling to the manufacturing facility to perform product testing.
Pros - work-life balance - interesting/challenging projects Cons - extremely difficult to get promoted as an engineer - management is too focused on customer deadlines rather than making the product work - little professional development - recent surge in hiring has led to increased mediocrity and decreased diversity of engineering talent
Manufacturing Assistant (Current Employee) – Saegertown – December 5, 2014
I made and packed chemical adhesive. I learned what the shop life is like. the management is good and the listened to our concerns. i loved the pay and benefits. Unfortunately the 12 hour scheduled every other weekend is not family friendly.
