paint line coordinator (Current Employee) – Manchester, TN – May 15, 2018
The morale can be down at times but recent moves in Human Resources have helped. Their is frustration sometimes with machinery breaking down. But this place has provided a good living for me and my family.
Courier/Independent Contractor (Current Employee) – Allentown, PA – April 25, 2018
As an Independent Contractor I came in contact with a variety of invidiuals. In al cases they were friendly, helpful, and able to assist me with accomplishing my assigned delivery. Focused on their job, they always took the time to ask how I was and how things were going which in turn I was ask the same. Cordial, polite, but task oriented. It is a good work environment.
Confidential (Current Employee) – batesville indiana – April 4, 2018
Management has no clue how to do jobs. HR is a joke more worried about people wearing ear plugs then anything else. Union reps. run each department and make sure the union members get whatever they want. You can be the best painter in the department but if a union member wants that job they get it. DO NOT work here money is decent but OT only goes to certain people so 40 hrs is about all you get a check. Overall some good people here but would NEVER recommend someone to get a job here.
Manager (Former Employee) – Batesville, MS – March 29, 2018
Great family environment during the time I worked there. So many folks were supportive of one another (leadership team and hourly). Very sorry to hear the company closed the Batesville, MS plant and transferred business to Mexico.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 21, 2018
Overall staple company in death care industry but there is no organizational structure and management is poor and lacks assertion. No one is accountable for their own work as you are expected to fix the errors of others and do your job with little to no recognition. Many glass ceilings.
Great pay and benefits
Non communication and managemt lacks managerial skills. No advancement opportunities
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Batesville, MS – January 21, 2018
I worked for Batesville Casket Company for 20 years. I was a very dedicated worker and was always prompt. We were on a point system and i never came close to pointing out. My supervisor was always concerned and helpful toward me while my wife was going through a lot of sickness they were so patient from the beginning until so got all the way well. When we were open i always recommend job openings. This was really disappointing for me to lose out of a really good company.
Over time when needed
Temperature was always hot in every area of the plants
Driver management was the worse. They would tell to do something, knowing it wasn’t right. When they are asked about, they’ll throw u under the bus. Coworkers were the best. U had to unload caskets at different stops. Often between 50 and 110. U are constantly hooking doubles”at certain locations”. Will write u up or fire u, for the smallest things. Pay is good, but management has a mega sized arrogance about them selves.
Great work environment company is invested in their employees.
Technology Solutions Development Intern (Former Employee) – Batesville, IN – October 27, 2017
I spent the whole summer working as an intern in their Technology solutions team. We serviced internal solutions and systems for the company and I was astonished that within the second day I was already started on my project that I was tasked with all summer. The team was amazing and very helpful with any new task I was trying to learn. The company is fully vested in developing talent from within and overall is a great place to work. Upper management has an open door policy and was more than willing to meet and talk about the company, their roles, and their impact/vision on the direction of the company.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Manchester, TN – October 23, 2017
Push production, fire fighters and no team work. Quality resources sat in the office most of the day. Veteran supervisors knew everything and workers on the floor never involved with changes. Extremely dirty environment / atmosphere. Very depressing company to work for.
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – October 4, 2017
I worked the night shift on the dock for a short time before relocating to another town. During my time, I enjoyed getting to learn the job and my manager was top notch. He was very patient and allowed me to learn all aspects of the job. The pay was good and the benefits were great.
