Great if you're in the right department
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Mount Vernon, OHNovember 1, 2018
Depending on which department you're hired in the work can either be amazing or horrible; leadership and control of some departments is terrible so product issues go unsolved and terrible managers make life miserable for their employees. Unfortunately the owner or upper management were not involved with day to day staff so either didn't care, or hear about the issues going on re: product safety or conduct in bad departments.

When given constructive feedback management in poorly run departments would rather stick their heads in the sand and ignore it rather than actually taking the initiative to back employees on campaigns to fuel change and success for the company.
Pros
I got a paycheck
Cons
Zero career growth, if you have ambission leave it at the door.

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

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.

Pros
good benifits and pto
Cons
Long hours inside one small place...micro management
