Customer Service Representative/Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIMay 5, 2017
Smaller company but the culture was great to work in. They worked with you but life work balance was terrible. Smaller company also means less compensation.

This is extremely physical work
Laborer (Former Employee) –  Oshkosh, WI 54902April 13, 2017
Employees are not treated very well. Little or no advanced knowledge of overtime. Expectations are to give up your whole life to work in a place that pays below average for the type of work performed.
Pros
Smoking is allowed
Cons
almost everything

Only for the desperate!
Shipping & Receiving / Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Green Bay, WIMarch 29, 2017
The worst management structure/business practices I have ever been a part of...If you like to work with temps who are straight out of jail then this is your place. Supervisors are nothing but puppets. Atmosphere is loud, dirty and old. NOT GOOD. Weekend work, including Sunday, is seeming to be ongoing.

Work here for insurence Not money!
Racker/Packer (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WIFebruary 24, 2017
Is a clean and self paste company for the most part. Does not care how much your here all about bottom dollar going out the door. Doesn't invest in it employees enough just demands more out of them with out giving them anything. Management lies to your face. have to have a name in here to move up or forget about it.
Pros
Insurance Breaks
Cons
Management, work, weekends mandatory no matter what

Don't do it
Facilities Technician (Former Employee) –  South Bend, INFebruary 14, 2017
If you are thinking of working here please rethink that decision. People were fired while doing what they were supposed to be with no back up from management. Head maintenance guy goes after anyone who asks for help and bad mouthed everyone. Thinks he does no wrong and takes credit for others works. Refuses to call people in for help therefore then playing the blame game. Not a very pleasant atmosphere.
Pros
Line and floor people are fantastic.
Cons
People are afraid of speaking up due to being targeted for firing.

Cool enviroment to work at
Former operator (Former Employee) –  Warren, MIDecember 10, 2016
The time i was at pioneer was cool but as time went by u could see where things were heading. Too much favortism,management friendly with employees,good workers fired over nonsense where the bad ones get promoted. Never deliver on their promises to employees just give them the run around. Team leaders and supervisors are rude and self centered. Production manager has a very bad attitude problem and when u tell hr bout it u get targeted for termination even when u have a racial comment hurled at u. Workers on the floor have no leg to stand on because when someone try to stand up for themselves team leaders and plant manager find a way to get rid of u. Cant ask for raises because that will be one step for u to get fired plus the threats u get from management regarding anything is crazy because they know they can get away with it.
Pros
Good coworkers
Cons
Bad management

Constant Turmoil by Management
Anodizer (Current Employee) –  Tualatin, ORJune 22, 2016
Management changes often and every time they bring in someone new to bring up production, they gush and gush about it but then they start the blame game and the upper management goes on a witch hunt.

* crew on the floor are great together but there is a LOT of backstabbing
*constantly hear about these values but it never applies to the floor or anyone
*each new manager finds someone to target for firing
*constant turmoil
*low pay
*not much recognition

Find somewhere else that pays better and gives you room to advance. This company is failing.
Pros
the crew on the floor know what is going on
Cons
pay, mobility, poor management

Chaos
All around (Former Employee) –  Tualatin OrJune 17, 2016
The management team is uncaring, the workers are unappreciated and the pay is minimum at best. They don't train anyone and set them up to fail! They move people around in positions and take away pay, and they put a lot of pressure on people with no assistance. They don't treat their employees or customers very well. They don't communicate what is going on, and they don't cross train. They lie to get you in the door. Corporate pretend they care but don't prove it

Get along with the coworkers
Chem Tech/Cell Lead (Current Employee) –  Green Bay, WIMay 15, 2016
I review the schedule for the day, order down parts to have processed. The co workers are friendly and easy to get along with. The hardest part of my job is the constant turn over of temps and having to retrain people every day. I do enjoy working hard and doing problem solving.
Pros
there is always work
Cons
they are making it almost impossible to have weekends off.

Worked the Anodize Line
Anodize Crew (Former Employee) –  Tualatin, ORMarch 25, 2016
We would anodize everything to airplane parts to pen caps. I was the only person who would anodize and dyed the Demorini baseball bats because of my eye for detail. Fun place to work just wasn't the healthiest.
Pros
Co workers were cool.
Cons
Dealing with all the chemicals with minimum safety equipment

Not the best
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Monroe, MIJanuary 18, 2016
A typical day of work was sometimes slow and overwhelming. I learned a lot about production work and cranes. Management was rather on the poor side, never cared to much about workers, you could do 100 things right and never get appreciation. The second you would do just the smallest thing wrong you would hear about it from team leaders, to supervisors, to even the plant manager. Co-workers were more than likely the best part about the job. The hardest part of the job would have to be the amount of mandatory weekends you would have to work.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INJanuary 16, 2016
The SMART values of this corporation are very important. It is small company and there is not a lot of room for advancement. A typical work day Pioneer is full of challenges and opportunities
Cons
Limited staff. Limited mobility, limited diversity in upper management
