Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – February 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!

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

Blendtec is a great place to work. The best thing about them is that they reward innovation. The want to improve and listen to all employees on how they can. The atmosphere is friendly and encourages collaboration.

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.
National Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Orem Utah – August 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.

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.
HR Coordinator (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – July 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 SALES MANAGER (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – May 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!
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) – Orem, UT – November 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.
Great managers. In-house bistro, gym, and medical clinic.

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.
Cant think of any
Lack of job security, incompetent management, nepotism, etc, etc. etc
independent contractor (Former Employee) – st Louis, MO – July 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.
