Electrician/ Lead Maintenance (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – July 20, 2016
Job security? YES Place to make a career? NO This is the type of job where you need to go to work, punch in on the clock and go home and be with your loved ones. Too much personal drama. Supervision and management have no respect for family life and personal life. This is a place where men are dogs, no matter if they are in management or supervisory positions. Many people have family working here but that does not stop men from harassing females.
You are only a number Promotes Positions to management mostly from within which normally means, "no education towards leadership/people skills."
Yard Hostler (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – May 15, 2016
As a yard hopper, you'll have to deal with moving old and deteriorated trailers that can tip over due to bad loading. Be careful because they give you safety points for anything. Its a big yard with a lot of forklift and golf cart traffic among other things. Nightshift is the shift you want because day shift is more busy and there's people watching you. Its a decent company but there's too many ways to get fired to say its a long term job opportunity
can use id card to buy snacks, 4 on/4 off schedule gives you a lot of free time
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – April 14, 2016
It's like many other jobs. Some aspects are good others are terrible. If you have family this would be a great fit. Due to the scheduling you work four days then your off four days. Pay wise it sucks really. Not as much as other ware houses though.
Picker (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – January 20, 2016
Time goes by rather quickly once you figure out the job. The job could pay more but it does not.The 4 on 4 off work schedule is a plus, because you have plenty of time off to take care of any of your personal business on the outside.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – January 7, 2016
Been at Poly for about 8 months at first it seemed ok but soon I realized the language barrier between me and pretty much everyone else. Safety seems to be no concern to management, there is absolutely no upward movement. HR department is incompetant. Waste of time. Do Not Work Here unless you are totally desperate and even so keep looking for employment elsewhere. No job no pay is worth getting injured and It can happen easily here. And they'll just replace you no care for employees at all
If your bilingual this job is great for you
Unsafe company, no raises, favortism, incompetency thru-out
maintenance (Current Employee) – cottage grove, mn – December 17, 2015
By far the worst company I've worked for. You start out by getting "trained in" by someone that speaks a different language. Pay is low. Inssuance is expensive. No time off for the first year. Then you only get a week vacation after that. If you need to take a day off forget ever ever getting a raise. Their moto is "if you can afford to take a day off you make too much money." Management is completely useless. Cant make a single decision without having it approved by corperate. Their idea of managing is standing there watching you work to try to make you work faster. The faster they need somthing done the more managers stand there to watch. Its hot, loud, constant cloud of smoke in the building, and very dirty. Don't expect to get anywhere in this company they will stab you in the back any chance they get.

Fast paced job where I gained a ton of warehouse expirience
Forklift Driver (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – June 17, 2015
When I came into work at 5am I would head to the warehouse to check out a forklift. From there I would head to the building I was designated to work in. My job was to pull fresh merchandise off of the production line and stock it in the warehouse. In addition to stocking merchandise I took inventory for a 6 month period. In my last year working for the company I managed my own building under my supervisor. I was in charge of making sure all stock was put away, contractor orders were fulfilled and cleanliness maintained.
It was an incredible place to work and the people who trained are good at training.
Forklift Operator and Packager (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – April 29, 2015
No typical days all good. What I've learned was Fork lift driving, machine operator, packager, stocking, marking skids, loading and unloading; etc.. The management there was good they work with your schedule if you were in school and sick or emergencies. Hardest part of job I have to say was well nothing at all exactly. Most enjoyable part is always showing up on time working at fast paced and getting every order out and all trucks.
A Packager they done wrong (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie – January 8, 2015
work is ok, I have learn a lot, and the management need to know there people better, some of my co-workers are ok but dislike the ones that intimidate others, the heat during the summer and the cold during the winter.
pay is good, managment is ok
poor training, bad commucation between packagers and operators (operators ignore the packagers), the is no focus on the rules the company set, cordinators intimidate others, operators sign off bad product as good, a hostile work enviroment.
Maintenance (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV – October 30, 2014
You get to work 12 hour days, 4 days on, 4 days off. If you work the day shift, be prepared to deal with managers that don't communicate or know anything about maintenance. You get to be treated like children and are always the reason why a manager isn't happy/things are not going right/loss of production/people feeling sick/and every other reason they can think of. You constantly have to sign "updates" to company "policy." Safety is only a concern when OSHA or the owner is there. You are known as a number, not a person. There are special privileges to managers favorites or people from the Texas plant. The bathrooms are filthy, covered in graffiti and used toilet paper because of different ethnic groups fighting. It is hot in the summer and the swamp coolers rarely get turned on and cold in the winter as the heaters rarely get turned on. Management rarely comes out of their office and usually barks orders over the radio. The area where managers are is off limits except to a selected few. There is constant rework of the same thing due to managers and engineers that don't know what they want. There is also machines that are purposely broke by production so they can take breaks. Don't every expect to get a raise and if by some lucky chance you can, it will be 25 cents or less. The philosophy is if you want to get paid more, work more hours.
plenty of overtime
health care expensive for families, long hours, no advancement, incompetent management
