Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Moline, IL – September 4, 2017
Relatively competitive specifically among the new salaried and the seasoned salaried. It seemed every time you worked a project to perfection so you could free up some time you spent at work, they moved a project from one of the Good ol boys to who ever was most efficient.
Challenging and great place to learn
Unfair distribution of projects to the point of being overwhelmed.
Manager (Current Employee) – Anderson, SC – October 23, 2017
One of the best places I have ever worked. Employees are treated very well, and new business is coming. Management team is top notch, and the plant leader is the best I have ever seen. He cares about the employees.
prefer not to say (Current Employee) – Anderson, SC – May 6, 2016
This company is a fly by the seat of your pants kind of place. Favoritism is rampant, job expectations are not communicated and the chosen few who "run" the place are clueless and protect their positions by witholding information and schmoozing with management. Truly a sinking ship. Work here if you REALLY need a job, but i suggest finding a more professional organization.
expectations are obviously low, easy to shine
lack of mature management with vision, factionalism

Cab Sealer/Laborer (Current Employee) – Moline, IL – April 18, 2015
A day at work could be anywhere from 8- 12 hours depending on how the line runs. Hardest part of the job is being there long hours and not having enough time with family. I get long with the people I work with.
Welder (Current Employee) – Rock Island, IL – March 2, 2013
I have welded here for 16+ year and enjoy what I do. Even though some jobs can be challenging, I can really count on the company to help me through the problems/issues. I also get paid well with my incentive and profit sharing. The benefits are also a plus.
Upper level management has a good grasp on the direction of the company. I have received a yearly profit sharing bonus every year I have worked here. Not bad concidering the economy. The production supervisors are GREAT people to work for and have supurb leadership abilities. I have worked for most of them, and can say they really care about the employees.
terrific team enviroment
co-workers that are here just for quick cash not a long career
Human resources terrible with employee relations. Poor quality and managment
assembler (Current Employee) – rock island – February 15, 2013
No union representation when needed. Company doesn't take care of employees, niether does our union. I work as an assembler, and I've seen the quality that we put out and I wouldn't buy anything this company produces. "We make it work" should be the company's motto. We also have 3 plant managers for 250 people.
health and dental good
human resources, managment, quality, saftey, engineering, sales, re work
Poor public relations between management and workers,low morale among employees
Inspector (Current Employee) – Moline Il – January 5, 2013
No leadership,plant in desperate need of repair,machines break down on daily bases, assemblers cant make a good rate on piece work, their always running out of parts,low wages,12 hour days and high turn over of employees, this business has lost many contracts because of poor quality.
former employee (Former Employee) – quad cities, illinois – August 13, 2012
The company is in disarray. Retention of new factory workers is only 15% after three months. The Industrial Engineers spend too much of their time justifying bonus rates rather than fixing fundamental flaws in the processes. Too much reliance on tribal knowledge. Quality is an after thought, so many aspects of the company as crisis management is the rule of the day.
Lots of drama in this company...
not enough to offset the cons, but good benefits
too many family and freinds of the family, creates factionalism.
Cohesive workplace with constantly changing challenges
Accounting Intern (Current Employee) – Moline, IL – April 25, 2012
Throughout the week I will prepare a weekly budget that is sent out to top level managers, excess and obsolete reports on inventory, aging reports for payments past due, KPI reports, and many other key statements/updates.
One of the most important things that i've learned is that communication is crucial in a good working team.
My superiors genuinely care about each employee and always do their best to thank them on a regular basis.
The most challenging part of the job is determining where and who to contact when information is needed.
employee has good relationship with the supervisor and HR personel
Assembly/ Laser Operator (Former Employee) – East Moline, IL – March 23, 2012
We do work from monday to saturday; i worked in 2nd shift due to my school schedule; we did pretty much 10 hours and sometimes 12 hours; i have learned many things such as how to assemble a header with different part. i also know how properly adjust the hydraulic to the setup requirement.everything was fine except that we usually have down time due to missing part and that was the reason why we got lay off. in my opinion the job was not hard but we need to be very fast as possible.The most enjoyable part of the job is when we have everything we need te get the job done properly and that time the job seems to be a peace of cake for everyone.
