operator (Current Employee) – Indiana – October 23, 2016
Hours vary wildly from week to week, so it can be difficult to have a good work/life balance. In some plants, you will not get raises after your first year. Management is often more focused on their numbers than they are about solving problems. Insurance is decent, but nothing spectacular. If you try to exceed expectations for your job, you will be taken advantage of by supervisors.

I worked in the corporate office in close relation to all of the highest held positions. Here's my takeaway:
Poor management. Poor family values, as the management praises extra time spent working over quantity or quality of work. Simply time. The claim to be one big family, but the family who owns the company only actually look out for themselves. Poor advancement opportunities. Advancement and perks were obviously based on office politics and friendships. The health insurance was awful. IT was a nightmare to work with. It shouldn't be a battle to get necessary equipment and software to do one's job. No project structure. No set project management. Leadership positions were largely held by hotheads. They will let you go with no reason or warning... or care for you or what will happen to you and your family as a result.

Ten hour shifts, all weekends off, and the hardest part being away from loved ones at night, co-workers friendly, management not focused on daytime shifts, hardest is dealing with first shifts short comings

The work is somewhat repetitive. There is a lot of lifting and moving involved in the upholstery job. It is rewarding to take the raw material and apply the fabrics and poly to see the finished product.

This is a great place to work...especially as a full-time employee! The workplace is fun, yet productive and relaxed. There is an on-site gym facility with a trainer and group classes. Each floor has its own break room with vending machines, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and ice maker. Management makes sure that the employees are happy in their work environment, and that is something rare.

I have to be at work at 7:15 P.M. Thinking here I go again same boring job. I have been taught how to run the machine i am on. They taught me very little about any other machines. I have worked on the same machine for almost a year. I have repeatedly told my supervisor that i want to go to another machine. But here I am 6 months later working on the same one. Co- workers are decent. Nothing to complain about. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to go to another machine.
Applications Developer Intern (Former Employee) – Huntingburg, IN – January 2, 2014
The job at OFS Brands was great. A typical day would usually consist of coming into work and looking at the IT requests that came in for me. I would spend most of my time finishing IT requests that involved: programming in SQL, PHP and other languages. I love programming so the entire job was enjoyable for me.
Great place to work for learning about office furniture
EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Huntingburg, IN – August 10, 2012
Everyday at work was different and interesting. I learned several new things about the office furniture environment as well leadership skills. Management and co-workers are like any other company you have the good and the bad...it's how you deal with it. the hardest part of this job is learning the different styles and colors of furniture.
doing something different everyday
if working in the plant you are stuck inside all day
