Ok if you can be hired off the street
Assembly Technician (Current Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHSeptember 9, 2018
Unless you can get hired off the street or put threw the blue chip program its not a good place to work at all. Many temp employees with the proper experience and time in the company are overlooked and skrewed out of having a full time job and benefits for no reason. Now with the blue chip program they also get to watch people with no time or experience get to become full time before them. Everyone including floor supervisors think this company treats temps as if they are not people and don't have families to support.
Pros
20 hours pto every 6 mounths I guess.
Cons
Everything if your a temp

Great Company that appreciates their employees with Great benefits
CNC Machinist/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Akron, OHJuly 24, 2018
Ariel is an amazing company to work for, they ask that all employees try to embrace the culture, which is a good one. They take care of their employees and offer very competitive wage and benefit packages among their industry.
Only expectations are that you show up to work and do your job, communicate if you need something and be open to learn.

Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHMarch 13, 2018
Great company if you live in central Ohio. You will not find another company like this in the whole state. Amazing culture, amazing benefits and employees are treated fairly.

HR department could use an overall but do not let that stop you from working here.
Pros
Family Owned, Profit Sharing. 401K, continuing education
Cons
VP of HR runs the company like a military, or tries to.

close to home, owner community icon
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHFebruary 5, 2018
Nice company in small town usa. Owner is a well known through out County and does lots for the community. However never met her, have seen her at meetings but never has she met with employees. lower Management leaves a lot to be desired, a lot of back stabbing, favorites, two faced management. A lot of racial slurs.
Pros
good for the community
Cons
owner doesn't know what floor management does.

Stepping Stone NOT a place to retire
Technician (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHNovember 28, 2017
8 years here. Many as a Contract Temporary Employee. If you manage to make it through years of being paid 11 dollars an hour with no health insurance to make the cut to become a FTE you will finally make it to the point where you get a 2 dollar raise and less than a weeks vacation. Ariel commonly forfeits its employees out of Christmas Bonuses because they claim theyre not turning enough profit. Profit sharing checks never reflect profit, theyre a couple hundred dollars a quarter. HR is a nightmare, God forbid you get hurt working there. Good place if you need to get back on your feet but dont expect a career. These folks are cuthroat. No smoking on property either.No leaving on lunches. CAMERAS everywhere. Use to be a GREAT place to work before they put production ahead of employees.
Pros
Wellness Center
Cons
No smoking ON PROPERTY. No leaving on paid lunches.

Long hours with micro managing

Bad place to work at...you are micro-manged by managers that seem to seek out certain people while ignoring others. One standard is ok for the bosses pet while not for you!
Pros

Long hours inside one small place...micro management

Stores Associate (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHJuly 12, 2017
The hours are really long. But, you only work 3-4 days a week. They offer overtime a lot so that is nice. You normally start on night shift which is horrible.
