Was great till wrongfully terminated
Final Assembly (Former Employee), Rock Island, IllinoisJuly 18, 2013
Pros: friendly personnel in the warehouse to work with
Cons: management, office personnel seemed stressed
Was a good place to work at, Management not the best. Lack of communication, office personnel looked stressed out. Management need to take notes from warehouse personnel were really nice to work with.

Was wrongfully terminated due to health insurance cost for my daughter and I were more than they wanted to payout.

Not I place I would recommend to friends/family
Shop Employee (Former Employee), Rock IslandMarch 3, 2013
Pros: bonuses available, paid lunch
Cons: poor management, conflict of interest issues
During my time as an employee there were many times I questioned the motives and abilities of management. Too often were employees blind-sided with changes. The atmosphere of the company went from it's "You get what you put in" mentality to a "it's more who you know than what your actual abilities are". Way too much politics and conflict of interest – more... in terms of management/employee relationships/friendships. Raises are also very lax and never timely with employee reviews. Definitely a "watch your back and who you talk with" kind of a workplace. – less

Employees are under paid and under appreciated
Assembler (Former Employee), Rock Island, ILFebruary 23, 2013
Pros: paid lunch, overtime is always available and welcomed, nice employee outings
Cons: healthcare deductibles are outragous for the size of this company, well below average pay for the type of work, extremely poor implication of lean manufacturing process, slim advancment opportunities, will cross train but will not compensate for the added knowledge
As a former employee in the shop I wittiness numerous safety violations from improper forklift procedures (excessive speeds, reckless loading and unloading,etc) to improper cleanup of spills (the soil under the building had to be iodine treated since it was contaminated). Equal opportunity is an issue that went on for years while I was there. Woman – more... and non Caucasians suffer the least forward advancement opportunities and raises for them are minimal compared to their male Caucasian counterparts. They claim they are family friendly but that isn't always the case. Don't take a job with them if you are the main caretaker of kids or other family members since they will gig you on your review and raises if you need to care for them in the event of an emergency. Don't expect the management to handle grievances since they will go in one ear and out the other. Not once did my grievances get resolved in the many years I worked there. Do not develop health issues as that will also be held against you as mine were. – less
