Material Handler/ Forklift Operator (Current Employee), West Chicago, IL – July 30, 2014
Pros: good pto, good health benefits
Cons: hot in the summer, cold in the winter, dirty and dusty, lack of equpment, poor scheduling
Typical work day for me is that I go in and there are back orders to be picked. Trucks are there to pick up the delivery at their scheduled time and the orders haven't been picked. So usually I go in and start picking an order and would also have to load.. as a result of it being a back order it usually we have to take a late lunch with no breaks in – more... between. It's very busy and fast paced but hard work goes unnoticed. – less
production (Former Employee), fort lauderdale, fl – December 8, 2013
Cons: everything else!!!!
I'm a young guy who learns very fast. Safe and an very efficient worker. Unfortunately, I was the only one. The others were very bad forklift drivers (simple crash everyday by them), no one picks up after themselves, and always low on product. Management was very lazy and allowing all the crew to do even their jobs! The job is very dirty, unorganized, – more... and people hated it. You out work yourself til your drentched and pay seems like crumbs to what you actually put in work wise. Very little time to spend with the family because overtime was always needed and given freely. Lacking communication, no sense of professionalism, and a corrupt company. – less
Liquid Production Manager (Current Employee), Garland – September 7, 2013
Pros: resign fast
Cons: staying there
Typical corporate structured company. Priority is money not employees. Company prefers to invest is equipment and acquisitions versus paying competitive pay and raises then brag to the employees of how well their doing. Mix messages? Yep!
Core company is in Milan Italy and their philosophy is family first, however the leadership team in the US "says" – more... the same thing but expects you to be loyal to the company, change schedules, work 12-16 hour days, cancel your vacations without paying you back, cancelled Thanksgivings, Christmas's and didn't give pay increases for 4 years and told everyone be glad you have a job!
Senior Management are fools, liars and inconsistent. They state policies and procedures but change or ignore them to better themselves. They promote family members to managers to positions that require degrees even if they lack the education. Positions are created without posting jobs, unethical things are being done daily but everyone gets a cut up on the top. They killed the bonus program they put in place without telling the employees. The truth was we could achieve it and the payout was affecting their bonuses. Constant product issues are another issue. This is due to a poor R&D lab and leadership. They develop products on a whim and don't realize the MFG costs. 90% of their stuff goes out before they test it? – less

Production Artist FREELANCE (Former Employee), Deerfield Beach, FL – April 14, 2013
Pros: just great!
Cons: there is a learning curve to understanding their system.
This company is unique. They have streamlined their entire internal system for passing work between departments and managers. It is not perfect, but the effort is to be applauded. Upper management is a little bit distant but offers so many internal perks that you just can't help wanting to work there. I freelanced there and had to endure an unpleasant – more... commute and slightly lower pay than I'm accustomed to, but I'm new to the state, so, I do not want to be greedy. This corporation made you feel so much a part of everything, it was easy to overlook the shortcomings. – less
