Human Resources Coordinator (Former Employee) – Anderson, SC – November 20, 2015
This company is very unstable. They are a start up technically. I foresee that they will not be in business for another 5 years. They are losing contracts, and laying off a lot of people.
The management is very untrustworthy and do not treat their employees fairly. I was sexually harassed by the general manager, but I had no one that I could report this to. The upper management is only concerned with the bottom line, and the people there do not matter. I would never recommend anyone to work here.
I did enjoy the people I worked with for the most part. The hardest part of my job was knowing that turning down my general managers advances ultimately ended my career with the company.
Enjoyed the last good year this place saw back in 2004
Production Welder (Former Employee) – Moline, IL – November 6, 2014
Company changed hands from father to spoiled son a couple years after I started. Income dropped by over 50%. When I started it was filled with long timers with pride and skill and had great contracts. They don't own their primary facility and was a dank dungeon of a workplace, but when the money was there it never mattered. Then it all fell apart. Horrible management after the turnover. Truly awful people in the HR office. Anyone who had a cheap degree and would work for peanuts would be brought in to be a supervisor that they would fire in 89 days, right before they could become a legitimate employee. In my final year they lost four of their best contracts and the majority of their employees. Last I heard they were still hanging on but no one knew how or why.
free ppe? i believe they will still hire convicts?
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.
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.
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.
I used to work there too. Nobody I know that actually "works" or has "worked" there has much good to say about the place. I'd hate to think what it would be like there without the UAW, if a Union was ever needed it's there!
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.

Dead end for engineers. High turnover, overbearing management.
Project Lead Engineer (Former Employee) – Moline, Il – January 18, 2013
The family places too much authority with too few employees. Decisions are second guessed by family / management on whims rather than logic. No chance for advancement. Little recognition. Working there was the biggest mistake in my career path.
interesting problems, challenging projects, good customers
management. family run old boy network. not what you know, who you ...
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.
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.
assembler (Former Employee) – Rock Island, IL – June 20, 2014
depending on what you do , the pay can be good if you make the rates. I wouldnt want to be a weilder, you can never make the rate the company wants. The union is useless, and so is the management. Not a stable job. If you know someone and in good ties with the management youll do ok, otherwise good luck.
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.
utility operator (Former Employee) – East Moline, IL – June 26, 2015
