Employee (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – June 8, 2016
Ok place to work but not a career choice by any means. Very hostile and no one knows when they get to go home or if they will have the weekend off. Very little reason is ever given, transparency from management to employees does not exist.
Job daily consists of 80 to 90% of time walking and standing during inspections, material verification and testing. Learned lean practices and quality inspection processes. Management believed I had good instincts for the job. I worked with a very skilled set of associates and enjoyed working the lines and processes very much. For me the walking was the hardest part of the job it tended to wear one down. Enjoyed the inspection process verifying the assembly was complete and met specifications.
medical benifits, bonusus, stock pay out and vacation time.
This is a career based job. This position is one that you could make a living off of. The job is expendable though. You could be replaced by machine so there is no garuntee of keeping this position. With advancement in technology things may change for your position within a company

Supervisor of Returns & Alterations (Former Employee) – Ontario, CA – December 14, 2012
A typical day at work was productive and enjoyable. What I learn was how to be a great supervisor and how to treat and appriciate all employees. Management there is very number driven but overall care about you as a person first. Co-workers are very caring want to know who you really are and love to know everything about you. Hardest part of job was going home knowing you could of done more. The most enjoyable part of the job was "SAVING LIVES".
I enjoyed the variety of work. One day working on a catalog, the next perhaps photography or web imagery or environmental graphics etc. Good variety of work.
The idea of "Together, we save lives" is taken seriously at the company but the execution of any/all things marketing has been miserable at best. The company has tried several times to make changes that improve these shortcomings, but seems to continue to make one mistake on repeat: Making decisions in complete isolation of employee input (and also MOSTLY lacking input from the consumer base). If employees who did the day to day operations were consulted with and the consumer base who was being marketed to was tapped as a resource, i think the decision making would have been more effective and in a more timely fashion.
Pros: Majority of the company truly believes in the mantra "Together we save lives" and coming to work everyday for this noble cause is genuinely gratifying, Immediate teams within the company seem to operate effectively within multiple divisions of the company, my immediate team was a pleasure to work with, With little exception everyone acts in a professional manner on a daily basis
Cons: Upward mobility is virtually non-existent, Management very rarely listens to employees and tends to make decisions void of the input from the people "in the field" or with the expertise to add value to the decision making, Accountability is requested and expected of anyone below Director level but there seems to be very little accountability above that level when it comes to equipping employees to perform themore... job they are assigned or when it comes to observing logic and/or current industry trends and affecting change • Little respect is given to the end-user audience, Repeated refusal to utilize focus groups & put into action surveys or other ways to get a genuine method of connecting to consumers, Little respect is given to design/marketing processless
The projects and tasks are challenging and interesting
