Unless you brown nose you will NOT succeed or move up in this company.
Assembly (Former Employee) –  Johnson City, TNApril 16, 2019
They have a bad turnover rate, they lay people off all the time, and reward hard work with even harder work and people that brown nose get easy jobs and are left alone.
Pros
Pay, benefits, hours
Cons
Management, unfair treatment, no work life balance, lax safety policies

good potential, garbage management/company styling
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) –  Johnson City, TNFebruary 12, 2019
high in potential but looses it when it comes to the mentality of "just get it done". all about friends instead of bettering the business. the supervisors are either biased towards people they like or not present. people breaking rules get free passes, others that do their job and show on time get pushed back. "take care of each other" is a huge issue. full time employees will bend backwards to bring people into the company that dont deserve or earn it all because they like them.
Pros
good pay considering, tons of breaks. easy to do job.
Cons
horrible managers. biased like a middle school.

Too many complanting females
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNFebruary 11, 2019
Cancel your contract for no reason. Management let's the favorite people do whatever with our any repercussions. Temps work harder than full time personal and temps are not appropriated.
Pros
Lunches
Cons
Management back stabing

Only For Certain People
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Florence, KYFebruary 8, 2019
I worked for the Powder Coating Department of A. O. Smith. The job requires excellent time management skills and a Forklift Certification. The training given by the full-time employees there are awful. However, the job itself is pretty straight forward. I was able to be shown one time what I had to do and was running my station and others by the end of the shift. You maintain a smelter pushing 2300 degrees so the job is hazardous and the material is glass so the factory is quite dusty. The job isn't for everyone and anyone at the plant will tell you that.
Pros
Money and Learning Opportunities
Cons
Work Environment and Trainers

Pretty boring
Assembler, Material handler, Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  McBee, SCFebruary 7, 2019
Never intended to retire or anything from here. Don't think they treat employees that great. Management doesn't interact with floor shop workers. A tense vibe.

Stressful pace but not a bad place to work for!
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, TNFebruary 7, 2019
I enjoyed most about this job is the ability to have security of the company. Wages were competitive and very reliable. The location was ideal to where I stayed in the beginning. I moved to Clarksville while working here.

AO Smith is ok
Special Forces (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNFebruary 1, 2019
AO Smith is an OK place to work, the pay is really good. The management is very rude. they always played favoritism. The pay isn't worth the stress of management

Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNJanuary 29, 2019
Overall great job. Biggest issue is the heat in the summer! If you can survive that, it's definitely worth it. Get a little dirty depending on where u work. You can bid on a job every 6 months once rolled over. Great starting pay. And car pooling for surrounding cities!
Pros
Great pay & advancement opportunities
Cons
Heat in the summer

Assistant Supervisor - Production Line (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNJanuary 26, 2019
A.O is not a place to work if you are not used to a fast paced environment. You work on assembly lines and there is no time to play around when the lines are turned on. It’s not a place to be if you are not used to hard work. It can be dirty depending on what job you have.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Can be dirty

The job can be physically demanding and sometimes monotonous, but a rewarding a job,
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNJanuary 15, 2019
It's not a desk job. You may be sitting or standing in one place for a time, installing a particular component on each unit or you may be pulling jackets and parts off the paint line. you may be moving heavy tanks onto skids or hanging them on the conveyor line. Whatever job you start on, there will be physical demands as with most industrial labor jobs, but the wages and benefits are worth it. The heat and noise can seem a bit much at first, but if you like factory work with good pay, this may be the job for you.
Pros
Competitive wages and excellent benefits.
Cons
Only first and second shift positions open with the exception of maintenance personnel.

Maintenance Contractor (Former Employee) –  KentuckyJanuary 7, 2019
Extremely dangerous place to work. People pretend to be safe while management is around so they don't get in trouble. Vitriolic and aggressive towards temporary workers.

Timekeeper (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIDecember 1, 2018

Pros
Was a great place

No longer exists

Production associate for A.O (Current Employee) –  Ashland City, TNNovember 21, 2018
Really enjoy working here, but the cutback the regular employees get while temporary employees are still working doesn't help. It would make more sense to get rid of temporary employees to allow the full time regular employees to make their hours.
Pros
overtime
Cons
cut backs

Freak show
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Ashland City, TNNovember 16, 2018
I was mostly able to keep to myself and as long as I got my work done, I was okay. Training was a bit odd, as I had five people trying to show me how to do one thing five different ways.... and they were all wrong.
Pros
On-site cafeteria
