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.

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.

A typical day at work is pretty relax. You do have to get all of your work done in a timely manner. I learned how to use machines through them, Hardest part of the job is as any on your feet A lot. best part would be the events they host for employees and their families.

Ariel was a dream job but I made the change at a poor time in 2008. I can't say enough good things about Ariel. I would love to be back there today. I never dreamed people could be so great to there employees.

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.
No smoking ON PROPERTY. No leaving on paid lunches.
I worked there for years .The insurance is great but I felt like I was at a concentration camp.They had the Matt and Don show,where they wanted plenty of brown nosing or you went nowhere and I saw alot of people quit and fired.It's only a matter of time till it catches up with the company .All salaried got huge bonuses and we got apples and a $50 lannings food card .What a joke.
Product Trainer Intern (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, OH – May 9, 2017
This company really cares about its customers, and its employees. Working as an intern there, my experience didn't prepare me to work with gas compressors, but my managers were very able to accommodate, placing me in a design team where I was comfortable. One of the VPs invited me into his office and we talked for a while about my career aspirations, and invited me to visit a company that he was a board member of. I really felt valued here, and it was my favorite job out of the ones I've had.
