A complete death trap of a place to work. Should be shut down by the epa.
All positions in production (Former Employee) –  Fort smithOctober 8, 2018
This place favors the good ole boys club. If you aren't a part of it good luck advancing. They will put someone over you with less experience because they were looking out for the future. Well look now people as they are about to close and get sold lol. This place has hurt more people and the environment than whirlpool ever did. Erin Brockavich needs to come and see the facility and the contaminated ground it sits on. There is hazardous waste buried under the entire area. They know and just submit bogus environmental samples. The health and safety guy in charge died of cancer. As we all will suffer long term effects from exposure. My life has permanently been altered because of working here and breathing this stuff daily. They implemented a safety program after people kept getting hurt to make themselves look good while encouraging employees to come up with things for small gifts to tell on each other.
Pros
None
Cons
Eveything thank god i quit!!!

The regular cycle of VSO and headcount reductions was awful
Master Data Process Owner (Former Employee) –  Dublin, OHOctober 7, 2018
I really enjoyed the people and the work I did at Ashland. There is still clearly a boys network in play that was quite discouraging at times. There was also, and continues to be, a cycle of buying/selling/reorganizing that resulted in voluntary retirement offerings and the headcount reductions to address "stranded cost". The unease this created was really awful and managed poorly.

Slow pace for the most part
Maintenance Foreman (Current Employee) –  Calvert City, KYAugust 20, 2018
Laid back job for the most part. At times things can happen which need immediate attention. Would be a great job if some of the employees didn't act like children. Seem to be more worried with causing disturbances and drama rather than using that energy to complete their job.

Overall the Company provide a good working enviorment.
Service Center Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 12, 2017
Good company to start in an entry level management position. Some automotive experience will help, but is not required. You will send your day working with a crew of 4-6 and be responsible to manage and coach them. Profitability is very important to the company, so providing the customer with the services to keep their automobile performing at top levels.

People
