Group Leader (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 30, 2017
Ninety percent of the work is done when the plant is not producing which is weekends and holidays. Must work every weekend and shut downs are a mandatory full week of working 12 plus hours a day. Salary was low for the amount of hours I worked. Seemed like a big disconnect between the corporate office and site locations. Contract was underbid which fell on site management. All they care about is the bottom line and corporate will set you up for failure in doing so. Site was understaffed, I was only GL on day shift most the time I was there. Director of operations will MapQuest your mileage log. Customer was difficult to work for at times. Did learn a little about lean manufacturing through Toyota. Was able to work on people managing skills, although I did feel like a baby sitter at times. Co-workers were fun. Benefits were really good when I worked there.
management needs to have more communication with others

Can be interesting but the management is lacking responsibility for the actions and job titles the give You have one job title and they want you to have four more then the one you currently are hired for.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 16, 2016
Its an awesome place to work. Great bosses to work for. Great pay and great holiday bonuses. Is only a 3rd shift. Your lunch is paid for. Work there is easy going aslong you like working nights. The job is done both ways with teams and dependetly.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Smyrna, TN – February 7, 2017
As this is sometimes a high paced stressful environment it is all worth it at the end of the day. I love that the management is very hands on and family oriented. We worked hard as a group and played hard as a group.
Carpenter (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 12, 2016
I worked with aerotek, a temp agency for maclellan at a higher pay rate (14.50) due to experience. after catching them up with jobs around the site and getting them on the right track, I was released. not only was I released, the management team accused me of poor work on a room for a day I was off. meaning I did not do that work, at all! and because I fought for my job and faced my accuser in a professional manner, I was wrongfully terminated. I then was shorted 15 hours on my last check which they refused to acknowledge, even with proof of badge time in's. never being able to get a response, I was left "high and dry". I am assuming I was let go for my high pay rate. this company's management is the worst ive ever seen and I highly recommend NOT TO APPLY. I left a great paying job for maclellan and regret it very much.
Industrial Cleaner (Former Employee) – West Point, GA – February 8, 2016
By far the worst place to ever work! No weekends off, people are very messy there and the bosses talk to you so reckless and will curse u out in a heartbeat! Poor teamwork! I can go on and on, but the worst place to work, like i said!
Mean, hateful employees, especially the assistant contract manager and the contract manager! No weekends, nor holidays off!
group leader (Current Employee) – West Point, GA – December 4, 2015
On the floor always. Not enough manpower. Salary and no overtime, which would be fine if I didn't work 60 hours a week and NO weekends or holidays off. Ever. Period. We clean on those days. maybe 2 days off during the week. Again no such thing as overtime. 12 hour shifts on weekends and holidays.
N/A (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – June 10, 2015
Maclellan lured me away from a job I loved with better pay and benefits. After my experience with this company I will be the first to tell you that money will NOT buy you happiness. The management at MacLellan does not respect women and will take every chance possible to degrade you. I was cursed at and called the "little assistant" even though I was in a high level management position. The IT system is a complete mess and all processes are paper based. The culture in the corporate office is completely somber. You will dread going to work every single day. I left the company and could not be happier. Don't believe anything you are promised in an interview. None of it is true.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Princeton, In – March 27, 2014
I do enjoy the family like atmosphere that maclellan gives. I love the management team that we have now. I have learned alot about building relationships and that we work together. We do not try and out do each other we work as a team and when we are together the bond is unbelieveable. The hardest part of the job is leaving it, i do know that i need to do this for my personal life. There is not one thing I could think of that is bad. They are truly the best people and have the best results.
Team Leader of Industrial Wastewater Operations (Current Employee) – Vance, AL – May 25, 2012
A typical day at work is full of exciting challenges. That keeps the job fresh. This company does not offer competitive wages, benefits or a lot of room for advancement. We don't get the cream of the crop when it comes to managers or employees. There are a handful of professional people spread out among the different contracts that keep things going. The hardest part of the job has been dealing with mangers and other personnel that lack the skills to perform their jobs properly. The most enjoyable part of the job is the work itself. It keeps me coming back day after day.
Contract Manager, Industrial Cleaning (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY – March 18, 2013
For the most part the site management allows new ideas. The customer is always right whether you lose revenue to prove otherwise is not a concern. Corporate culture is mixed bag. Praise from VP can be over shadowed by criticism from OD. A raise one month and dismissal the next is not managing people, its removing those that do not agree without due process. Co-workers on site are great to work with but higher ups hold a grudge and will act on it when convenient.
advancement without a degree is possible
not friendly to female management, limited growth potential for women.

General Maintenance and Team Leader (Current Employee) – Portland, MI – May 1, 2012
A normal day at work is being busy without takeing a full break, I've learned all the positions my employer has to offer. Im a team leader, with great leadership skills.I am a fast learner , i over look 6 other employees work. which are custodial,lubrication and general maintenance, I have learned that with important responsibilitys. comes great honor when a job is done well and everyone goes home safe.The management where i am employed at is not the best. in other words, my boss does not practice what he preaches. My co-workers are not the best to work with. they lack ambition and the follow thru off most the jobs. The hardest part of my work is trying to get somebody to work a shift when there is a call-in.I like most about my job is how I was given the chance to excel and learn everything there is to know .
