Awesome place to work
Quality Control Technician (Current Employee) –  New Troy, MIAugust 14, 2017
This is actually a wonderful place to work, anyone who says otherwise just isn't trying hard enough. If you put in the work and show that you want to learn they will teach you. You can't slack off, miss work/show up late and expect to get anywhere.

This truly is a wonderful company to work for, and the management is the best I have ever experienced.
Pros
Awesome management, Competitive pay
Cons
Short Breaks

Easy work
Mill Operator (Current Employee) –  New troy, miMay 18, 2017
The job is easy but the higher ups can never seem to communicate which messes up the workers. Pay isn't bad. There is little to no equality. Good luck moving up or getting a raise
Pros
Working alone
Cons
Little break time

Company who treats employees like sheep and only cares about issues when they cost the plant money.
Admin (Former Employee) –  New Troy, MIMarch 10, 2014
This company has the potential to be very good, but it doesn't deliver. There is no positive recognition, no rewards, and no direction. The company's mission is to grow and become the largest employer in Berrien County. They have horrible benefits, laughable vacation packages for all employees, and the pay is just on par with the rest of the area. You do not get developed, there is little to no chance for advancement and favorites are played.

worthless upper management, does care about your well being
operator+ (Former Employee) –  New Troy, MI.February 9, 2013
I worked for this company for a few years, supervisors are great on production side of shop, supervisors not so great else where in shop, owners are great people though. You receive no sick days, 80-90% of temps do not get hired in after there 90 days if they get hired at all and if Vickers does let them go because of "under staffing". I've seen people wait months after there 90 days and these are good workers that haven't missed a day and great at there job there placed on. Overall its work but dont trust them if you have a family that depends on you to keep your job to provide for them. There are too many snakes their, too many chiefs not enough indians.
Cons
short breaks, no sick leave, horrible management, unsafe work areas
