Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee), West Point, GA – January 22, 2014
a typical day is 8 hours 2 ten minute breaks 1 thirty minute lunch break. basically working on assembly the whole time. Management basically say they gone follow kia rules but dont. co-workers love some attitudes, some kind of rude. The hardest part of the job is trying to do a task in like a couple of seconds but are difficult to do the job and they – more... are pressuring you. The enjoyable part of my job was being around the funny people also the job at times when not being pressured.. – less
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee), Shelbyville, KY – October 14, 2013
I enjoyed working in Quality Control. The only problem I had with this job was they placed me in Middletown to work and I live in Frankfort and the job only paid 10 dollars an hour. I went to work for Nextlife because they were only 5 miles from my house and paid me 12.78 to start.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – August 25, 2013
Pros: enjoyable and fun
Cons: can;t controll thier people
On a typical day we would all have a short meeting in the lunch room to let everyone where they would be working then go to our station then work until lunch then go back then done for the day next day the same until you get new peolpe in who don't know how to respect those who don't want to here curse words all day long go to management they ask if – more... poeple could stop cursing they don't they try again same thing nothing accomplished so I ran out of understanding. Other than that the job was fun and enjoyable to work – less
KIA production (Former Employee), West point – February 21, 2013
Pros: insurance benefits
Cons: six days a week, terrible office staff
Most of office people in La Grange were rude and didn't care about employees. They just needed bodies. The ones who did care were let go. They made you feel like you were lucky to have the job. The office manager was really rude. In December they messed up my check and it took them more than a week to resolve it. No sorry no nothing. Just keep working – more... at KIA and making us money. At KIA those supervisors didn't care either. Anyone who tried to get things fixed got replaced. The whole thing was pretty bad. The benefits were good. I was too exhausted to enjoy any of them working 6 days a week. I liked the other line workers, I hated dealing with anyone in a Malone gold short. I did know when they were lying-- they were talking. – less
Temporary (Former Employee), West Point, GA – February 6, 2013
Pros: drove new cars
Cons: low pay, bad working conditions, managers that didn't care about you
The typical day in the summer consisted being driven out to a huge concreted area in 100-degree weather and waiting for cars to drive to the rail carriers. It was hot and generally miserable with little shade. They did give us bottled water. How no one died from heat stroke I don't know. Only saw the Malone office staff that hired me twice. They didn't – more... even know my name and didn't care. I overheard two staff members talking during my 5-minute interview that they needed more bodies for GAPS. The best part of the job was it convinced me to go back to school. – less
Temporary (Former Employee), La Grange, GA – February 1, 2013
Pros: regular work as long as you showed up
Cons: awful experiences with temp office staff
Worked at KIA while I was finishing school as a temp for Malone Staffing. Glad when I graduated and turned in my notice. The culture of the company was terrible (Malone). The office staff didn't care about us despite the fact we paid their salaries.
whats the name of the actual shop you worked at with them, Im trying to send someone flowers but dont know the exact place to send them
Job Work/Life Balance
Malone Staffing..... it's okay.....
Forklift/ Cherry Picker/ Reach Truck Operator (Former Employee), Louisville, KY – January 18, 2013
Pros: quick access to work
Cons: not truthful in order to fill slots.
Malone staffing, although they do provide an associate with a quick job, is notorious for just filling slots, so to speak. The last assignment I worked for this company was supposed to be a temp to hire position after 90 days. The company that I was working at had me as a temporary employee for almost 11 months, then, due to their relocating, decided – more... to let all temporary employees go. – less
It was a busy, and hard working job. I learned how to run a stamping machine. The managers were nice and responsible, my co-workers were smart and responsible, the hardest part of the job was keeping up with all the things that had to be done. I enjoyed being successful at the end of the day.
production/assembly (Former Employee), Nashville TN – August 5, 2012
Pros: cant think of any
Cons: dont get to know the applicant just herded through like cattle
very unprofessional company who only cares about making a fast buck. They hired me for a temp job and never even explained the job details..the so called "orientation" took about 2 minutes....the branch was about as friendly as a rattlesnake....no sense of urgency and no way did they care about my skills, I felt like a piece of meat
Assembler (Former Employee), Greensburg, IN – June 26, 2012
I would help build various parts for car locks and latches on an assembly production line. We had a really good hard working crew for our line. the hardest part was having to make certain deadlines for different products. The most enjoyable part was having mostly steady working hours and a crew with really good work ethics.
