Do not work here
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTFebruary 22, 2018
Blendtec is a terrible place to work. Management is horrible, from the top to the bottom. You get lied to every day. Raises are impossible. Hostile work environment. Favoritism is a major problem. They can't pay their suppliers for new parts, so they take refurbished machines, pull out the (used) parts and put them in new machinces and sell them as new. Go homeless before you settle to work here!
Pros
When you get to go home
Cons
When you have to come back

Poor management
Web Developer (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTJanuary 29, 2018
When I was working there, management had no idea what they wanted, and had a hard time keeping employees, especially after the two layoffs in one year that they had. IT department went from over 15 people down to 5 in the course of two years
Pros
Cafeteria
Cons
Low Pay

Horrible place to work
Quality Inspector (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTJanuary 1, 2018
Don't try to work here. you will end up unhappy. Management is very untrustworthy. They said the company was doing well. But couldn't make payroll, so they laid 150 of us off.
Pros
not much

It was an ok job
Assembler (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTApril 25, 2017
It was just ok. The managers are very conservative and I am not which may have caused some tension in the work environment. Other then that it was a really fun job.

Not fun
Purchasing Manager (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTApril 8, 2017
Owner and upper level management is clueless on how to run a company. Eventually it will be non-existant or greatly reduced. It needs to turn over companies to managers that have real life experience
Pros
cafeteria
Cons
Management lets people go based gossip not on performance.

Great company
So. Cal Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Pasadena, CAOctober 25, 2016
If you know haw to sell you will make a lot of money with them. They are actually very good blenders and they have quite a lot of people who love them. You just have to know how to remain super energetic.
Pros
Lots of money and free days
Cons
heavy work load during work days.

Great product poor managment
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Orem UtahAugust 25, 2016
Company could really dominate their field if they got the right people to manage the company instead of family.
Management makes decisions without input from sales team on products or procedures that effect the customer and sales team to effectively do their job and provide quality service.
Pros
great product
Cons
horrible managment

Good job but not opportunities to grow
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  oremJuly 27, 2016
No opportunities to grow, you need to be friends with the manager to have better chances to a promotion, they give you money for school each semester which is good if you are not looking for a career in the company.

Blendtec
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTJuly 4, 2016
Working at Blendtec was a great experience. I enjoyed the people that I worked with very much. However, the culture of the Executive Management was not conducive to feeling secure. They would hire and fire Department Management randomly. The atmosphere became one of walking on eggshells and not sure if you would have a job tomorrow.

regional manager
REGIONAL SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTMay 18, 2016
It all starts from the top. the founder still has his hands in too many areas of the business. There were constant changes with management and even personnel. Very unstable. Getting rid of people and moving them again is best said as "Changing seats on the Titanic". And sales directors that are felons!

Blendtec - Great work environment
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTNovember 2, 2015
Blendtec was a great place to work. The engineering managers expected the most out of you, but also were human beings that didn't mind letting their hair down and having a good laugh. They also knew that time with the family is important and didn't expect long overtime hours out of you.
Pros
Great managers. In-house bistro, gym, and medical clinic.
Cons
Temporarily going through bad financial times.

Worst place in the world to work
marketing dpt (Former Employee) –  Orem, UTOctober 29, 2015
First of all, I'm sure no one reading this is actually considering BT as a place to work, since they recently did another round of massive layoffs (After calling everyone together on a monday to warn of impending layoffs then waiting three days to do it...cruel) and can't afford to hire anyone anyway. That aside, this place is a mess. Financially, they can't even pay their employees or vendors (hence the layoffs). Ethically questionable behavior from many people. Management is running around like chickens with their heads cut off, and no one seems to know how to lead a company. The nepotism in this company will be its downfall. The people are put in charge not based on performance or qualification, but by last name or who they go to church with. Terrible culture, terrible leadership, terrible place to work.
Pros
Cant think of any
Cons
Lack of job security, incompetent management, nepotism, etc, etc. etc

independent contractor/little support
independent contractor (Former Employee) –  st Louis, MOJuly 30, 2015
work 11-12 hour days; compensation is $125/day less deduction for the $1500 in equipment the contractor must purchase from Blendtec. hard word due to vast competition from less expensive blender competition; lot of resistance to pay $300 for a blender even though it has an excellent eight yr. warranty; it is a superb machine. management is literally "virtual" rather than physical. tremendous competition from more expensive better known and recognizable competitor.
Pros
excellent product
Cons
no benefits/management/communication via text; no fellow workers

Pros

WAY to many hours, cutthroat mentality, no urgency to fix problems with product
