Engineer (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ILSeptember 21, 2016
Call ins at all hours of the day and night. Dirty and old facility. No chance for advancement. A good place to get a start and move on. If you are part of the management clique, you have it made. There is a lot of favoritism and nepotism. Salaried persons are required to work a minimum of a 45 hour work week.
Pros
Mediocre benefits
Cons
Long hours and high turnover

Teamleading factory work
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Rossford, OHJune 6, 2016
Worked daily on producing and managing parts put out through documentation and communication with other team leaders or hire up managers. I trained others on safety and how to produce parts on my line where necessary. The job is very physically demanding and safety is a must when working this line of work. I learned how to be a great leader and take control of a specific part of the an entire process.
Pros
Added to my Leadership skills
Cons
Management did not communicate well with leaders to be able to put out fantastic product

Flexiably scjeduling, Polite & Hard working Co-workers
Warehouse laborer/Forklift Op./Delivery/CSR-CSA (Current Employee) –  Sacramento, CAApril 11, 2016
A typical day of work consists of delivery driving, both local and as far as out of state. A more than fair amount of computer work which includes consolidating customer invoices and account balances (typical accounting work). General warehouse work such as cycle counts, maintaining proper inventory, and plenty of physical labor. management does things right, however true leaders do the right thing. Unfortunately I have seen a fair numbers of co-workers come and go mainly due to the fact that this type of work requires you to be on time and willing to help out in multiple ares when needed. However the individuals i have met that do come and go have been very pleasant and easy to work with. One of the more difficult aspects is keeping up with the amount diverse work due to a current under staffing of our facility. Most of all I have enjoyed the flexibility aspects of our center.
Pros
flexiabilty
Cons
under staffed

Relativly hard work with low pay (position pending)
Warehouse Manager/Service Center Lead (Former Employee) –  Flagstaff, AZMarch 23, 2016
Warehouse positions do a lot of heavy lifting and walking around with heavy awkward objects (large windshields). Drivers have it a bit easier but often work odd hours and drive many miles. The safety regulations and company policies are really absurd at times. Advancement is often limited due to location size. Not a terrible company, it worked for a good while, but I was not satisfied with my experience.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Too many
