It was Great company, but ownership has changed and so has the company.
Territory Manager- NH/VT/Northern MA (Current Employee), Burr Ridge, ILNovember 4, 2014
I worked with a great group of people. My job consisted of calling on wholesale accounts and creating marketing and buy up programs. I hosted lunch and learns and trainings for contractors and sales reps.The company was publicly held and pushed hard for quarterly returns which became groveling for business at times. I did enjoy putting together promotions and contractor shows . Working with contractors and trouble shooting equipment issues is also a highlight of my job.

Transitioning from management to staff - challenging but rewarding
Sr. I.E., Supervisor Production Control & Safety (Former Employee), Benton Harbor, MINovember 29, 2013
Pros: good management and working conditions.
Cons: they moved out of town before i was ready!
I worked on incentive system time studies, establishing standard hours/piece (pieces per hour) for the plant, resolving grievances, plant layout, equipment installations, programming equipment for production of parts, etc.. I also worked with corporate engineering design personnel in modifying designs for manufacturability. Later I absorbed the safety and production control responsibilities, plus performing cost analysis specifically related to the move of the manufacturing operations to North Carolina in 2005-2006. I also travelled to NC to assist in the startup of that plant - helping to train their personnel.
My days were fairly predictable, and varied with the immediate needs. I simply responded to current requirements and proceeded with other work as time was available.
I came to the job fairly well experienced in its requirements, although I learned the MAPICS system, various quality programs, and other systems. My co-workers were excellent, almost without exception.
The hardest part of the job was the general attitude some had toward an IE, but I already knew how to respond and handled them professionally. The most enjoyable part of the job was the satisfaction of knowing that I was doing a good job and was respected.
