2nd Shift Chemical (Current Employee) – Blacksburg, VA – January 16, 2017
I couldn't ask for better coworkers. Energetic, relaxed and for the most part hard working. The atmosphere is generally relaxed but there are times when work needs to be fast paced and done correctly. I really enjoy working here but find it hard to make a decent living. Locally the company relies on staffing agencies to supply a majority of hourly workers and it really shows. Wages are below market average and advancement is based on personal relationships.
variety of nightly job assignments, great coworkers
Low wages, advancement based on non work related issues, inexperienced shift management and line operators, short tempers
Currently Employed (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – January 12, 2017
Very funny and fast paced job. Travel everyday within a certain range around your home on your personal vehicle. Company includes very good benefits and compensation. Management is very friendly. It is a seasonal position that last the whole summer but there is room for advancement if you decide it may actually be something you would like to make a career out of.
Good work life balance unfortunately company is leaving California

Seasonal Merchandiser (Former Employee) – South and North of Denver – December 7, 2016
Only apply if you need a seasonal job to get through school or just a summer job. Lots of heavy lifting and climbing the tall ladders in Home Depots and Lowes. Lots of travel and ware and tare on your vehicle. I would drive nearly 100-150 miles a day at times. Pay is only 13 an hour. Try to avoid taking any toll ways on highways.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – November 29, 2016
A typical at spectrum brands for me was picking orders for different companies such as fedex and UPS. I learned organization and how to operate in a fast paced environment. The management was very kind and passionate about the work. The hardest part of the job was constantly staying alert for forklift driving around.

Cash Application Specialist (Current Employee) – Lake Forest, CA – October 15, 2016
Never has been a day in the office that was not filled with new ideas to be absorbed and learned. There is always room for improvements and advancements that caters to each employee. It's a pool of employee interaction between staff management and peers, exchanging ideas, insights and own opinions to create a better and more functional work environment that is beneficial to both employees, management, nature of business and company itself.
Team building activities, group or department lunches, employee appreciation events
Production Worker/Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Dixon, IL – August 15, 2016
I worked at the Dixon plant for 5 years. They are 5 years of my life I will never get back. The work itself is not difficult. The management, or mismanagement is the true issue. Favouritism is rampant. There is no job security. The team "leadership" foster a hostile work environment. Turn over is ridiculous. Most employees are decent enough, but the overall stupidity of management has beat so many people down. The human resource department is untrustworthy. It is not a stable place to work. Almost everyone in the outlaying community offers condolences if they find out you work there.
