Senior accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Avon Lake, OH – October 13, 2016
Landed at corp office AP after my company was bought out. Little training, catty co-workers and mgmt. that cared more about what committees he could join than actual training or working with his employees
Lead Material Handler (Former Employee) – Greenville, OH – September 16, 2016
PolyOne was a very fast paced factory. During my position as Lead Material handler I learned a lot about OHSA, 6S, Trained for Lock out tag, certify to train for forklift/boom lifts. I over seen the mixture of raw material for 16 plastic extrusion lines with 6 team members. I had to ensure everything meet customer specs and record all steps in doing so. Polyones turn over rate is/was very high. so the biggest challenge for me was keeping fully staffed. I did enjoy the daily challenges as thing were always changing keeping you on your toes
If you work there to long or make to much they will get rid of you
Production (Former Employee) – North Baltimore, OH – September 15, 2016
I put 21 years in this company. A new management crew took over and within six months they fired me and gave me no severance. The upper management have no idea what they are doing. I have nothing good to say about the management. But I enjoyed the imidiate people I worked with and the fast pace of the job.
Fair pay good 401 k and fast pace and very high on safety
High insurance no determine end time and feels like your walking on eggshells

Process Manager (Current Employee) – Paulding, Ohio – June 9, 2016
Balanced company who treat their employees well. Strong on employee empowerment, advancement, and recognition. Management structure is a little bloated. Hardest part is the realistic, yet extensive goals. The most enjoyable part is the team atmosphere.
Large corporation does not care about the hourly employees
Former Supervisor (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – May 25, 2016
This was a small company that is now a part of a large corporation where everything is for the stockholders. No one cares about the hourly employees, even though they say this is not true. Way too much pressure at every level.
Productive and busy workplace with friendly co-workers
Operator (Former Employee) – Seabrook, TX – February 6, 2016
A typical work day consisted of making sure equipment was running properly and samples were properly collected and tested. Also making sure transfer systems were properly operating and material transfer into correct area.
Good luck with having the parts you need to fix the equipment, and the younger guys in maintenance will cut your throat out any chance they get. Not to mention the fact they are stealing everything they get their hands on at the same time. The older guy's in maintenance are rude and very demeaning towards anyone who has a real background in maintenance. My advice is stay far away from this company.
Able to focus on issues which directly effected the plant as well as issues which touched multiple facilities. We were able to suggest improvements with the ultimate customer focus which drove changes.
machine operator (Former Employee) – McHenry IL – October 14, 2015
It was a good company when it was GLS, Now they have corporate management, brought in some ex military thugs to run the place, there is no more opportunity to have pride in your work, everybody is expendable,
Manufacturer Rep for Latin America & Brasil (Former Employee) – Kennesaw, Georgia – October 7, 2015
Enjoy working on international sales with assigned territory. The size of the customers or distributors in Latin America were the reasons for a lot of support from other company's areas. I felt very good as part of a dynamic group of professionals who embrace at all times the customer's needs. A good portion of creativity and invention came through in order to respond to the dynamic of the marketplace. Being products addressed to the textile and screen printing industry, innovation was always a mark that distinguished those who supported my sales efforts in the region assigned. During 10 years of my work at the division of textile inks my sales results were consistent because of the great technical support and extra efforts that were put as a result of great teamwork. In addition, participated in international trade shows in Germany, Spain, Brasil, Colombia.
