Poor work place
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Venice, FLOctober 31, 2017
They preach work life balance but that's not the case at all. It's PGT or nothing. Everyone who works there seems to be very stressed out all the time. Upper management don't care about the employees. All they care about is numbers. The HR department is a joke. They are suppose to be there to help you but if you go to them with a issue you basically just put a target on your back and you will be let go soon.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Temporary summer job
Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Salisbury, NCOctober 19, 2017
I worked this job during one summer in between semesters of college. Once I got used to the manufacturing pace, it was fairly simple tasks to complete. The plant in NC has since closed down.
Pros
Constant work, never bored
Cons
Early hours, on your feet almost all the time.

Nice location in Florida
Manufacturing Technology Engineer (Current Employee) –  Venice, FLAugust 31, 2017
Typically arrive at 6am work to 4pm on as assembly machinery designs and support. SCADA and IOT is growing fast within the corporation and a lot of growth possible in those areas. Factory floor jobs have about 48% turnover rate, so many challenges with poor practices and skills. Highly automated from sales to machine fabrication centers. Low automation from machine centers to customer job sites. Employs 2500 in 3 locations in south Florida.
Pros
Nice area

The workers and environment are great. Leadership is lacking. Never get hurt there!
Dock Operations Tech II, Material Handler Tech II (Former Employee) –  Venice, FLJuly 24, 2017
Never thought I would ever leave. Awesome company overall as long as you do your work. I've met some really great people there. I think leadership is not what it should be...but that creates job security. Some leaders are outstanding and others shouldn't have a job.
Pros
It literally is a job you can retire from. Good benefits, 401k, Tuition reimbursement program
Cons
Never get hurt here.

Technician Three (Former Employee) –  Venice, FLJuly 17, 2017
This company is easy to work for. As long as you show up, you can have a job here. The training for the lines is sub-par and more a learn as you go work place. Your fellow employees are welcoming and fun to be around but the management needs to be revamped and/or retrained.

Great people/income/&benfits. But no job/life balance
Assembly Line Technician II (Former Employee) –  Venice, FLMarch 13, 2017
The best part was the people I met while working here. People from different cultures and backgrounds,I will never forget them. The management was very caring. Benefits were great, you can make a loot of money here. Downside is you could be working 40-80 hours a week, meaning no job/life balance. It wore me down. Your job is pretty secured, just make sure you don't run out of passes(time-off passes)(which they don't give much at all anymore). Advancement could be fast or slow, depending on their demand, and depending on your work-skills. Me, a long with many others, worked hard to advance(tech-up) and get raise, and never got it. ((If you are young just go back to college like I did(everyone here will tell you to do so too!)) They have a lot of outside activities such as sports, etc., but it was hard to enjoy when you don't have energy left over to do so. The fun thing while working on the line was being able to listen to the radio
Pros
Healthcare, The culture/people, Money
Cons
Raised lunch prices, Took away passes, No job/life balance

LINE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Nokomis, FLFebruary 4, 2017
The people you work with are great. Management needs to appreciate their employees a little more. A lot of room for moment both up the ladder and laterally. You do work long hours in season (summertime).

long hours and don't care
Group Leader (Former Employee) –  PGTJanuary 17, 2017
Claim to be a family caring company but in truth they do not give a dam as long as they are getting the numbers and only care about share holders.Leaders are back stabbers. Long hours and total lack of safety. Many injuries because of this. Looking for a good job? look elsewhere.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
No concern for safety as long as the job is done

Line Operator (Former Employee) –  1070 technology dr venice fl 34275January 10, 2017
Terrible leadership and lies about job advancement and how much you actually get paid.
Leaders were very lazy and tried their hardest to do as little work or give little help to you as possible.
On the other hand the benifits were very good with dental and health plans but i guess thats why they could pay so little.
Pros
benifits very long 12 hours if you like that
Cons
bad leaders, lies alot anout things, environment was super depressing
