General Manager Brunswick Zone XL (Former Employee) – Algonquin, IL – October 11, 2018
Great company. I thought I'd retire from here. Once a new president came in and saw the bonus potential to sell out they did. Ruined many lives in the process. Sold out to our bitter rival. Imaging McDonalds and Wendy's merging. Yeah like that. Upper management lost its way but the Brunswick Brand is strong and a great company
Repair Technician (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – October 18, 2018
I was expected to do more at same pay as others had to lead with no lead pay had to train people that had never used any of the equipment that had to be used they started hiring people that didn't speak the same language as other so train was extremely hard. I was in the company for a long term to make a living so when they hire people that just don't want to work r not even show up it makes it harder on everyone
Paid lunches, holidays, great benefits
They hired people with no experience with power tool expected to training with no training pay
Management lied right from the beginning just to get me to come on board.things just never got better, poor management, most of the co-workers were impossible to work with. It is not a very fun place to work at all. So many better places to work I am glad to be out of there.

Laborer (Former Employee) – St Paul park, mn – August 27, 2018
This company hires temps, and some on probation for 45 days before they are hired and become Union. This company finds a reason not to hire you in the 45 days. In 45 days I was there I saw A lot of people come and go. No one was hired.
What ever the temperature outside was plus, 15 degrees, Standing whole shift, Two 10 min breaks, 1 30 min break, There is a buzzer that goes off when its break time and when to go back to work.
VP Operations, General Manager (Former Employee) – Merritt Island Florida – August 6, 2018
Great place to work , very people oriented and great opportunities for advancement. Offers multiple opportunities since they are present in. a number of countries, They continue to grow in a number of fields and their financial performance is very solid
Management is very poor. Have little knowledge of jobs to be performed. Supply is a joke. Material quality is very poor. If you can get it. Engineering is former line workers. With no engineering back ground. Problem solving and design issues are out sourced. Costing to much money. Material used to complete project is poorly selected. Example: Exterior vinyl for cushions was not U/V resistant. Causing failure. Who dose this?
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – July 9, 2018
Fast paced - no benefits before 90 days! Hot, dirty, low pay, personal favouritism among employees, difficult work areas where expected to multiple jobs although it wasn't what I was hired to do - I felt like a monkey - trained for the amusement of the management staff. I ruined my personal clothing because no uniforms were offered, nor was there a uniform allowance, or compensation for destroyed clothing while working for this company.
They DON'T value their employees - temporary or permanent! Breaks are too short (20 minutes) and only TWO offered all DAY LONG! You work 10 hour and sometimes 11 hour days without knowing until right before lunch that you have to work over on the same day and sometimes you work on Saturdays. You have to beat the train on BOTH ends of the street (Hadley Rd.) to get to work on time. You can only be late TWICE before being fired. Too much stress for too little pay. They make BILLIONS of dollars a year and pay their employees PEANUTS for what they could pay and don't treat them well. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!
Pays at least $12.50 an hour to start.
Bad work experience! Too much drama from the higher ups. Very disorganized!
Cashier/Cook (Former Employee) – Orange County, CA – May 11, 2018
I did a lot off desk relation, like Cashier, to setting up shoe, to running the sound board. Along with making sure the cooking station is well stock, and on the fly any time league bowlers or anybody else needed anything. Management was cool, every thing a joy to work for.
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Mettawa, IL – May 7, 2018
Unless you are a high level employee, don't expect job security, good pay increases or any other perks. Managers are put in place who do not have the qualifications to lead the departments they are responsible for.
2 week vacation unless you are higher up or negotiate an extra week. If you do negotiate, don't expect anymore until you are here 15 years. Policiess don't apply to corporate HR.
Marketing (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 23, 2018
I have nothing negative to say about Brunswick. It's a great company with a lot of opportunity for growth. The company also has amazing benefits. Including: 401k and match, great health, bonus and merit increases etc.
Sales/Customer Service Attwood (Former Employee) – Lowell, MI – April 16, 2018
Very poorly managed, especially the customer service department. HR and the president could careless even though they have been told time & time again by several different employees. Very high turnover rate due to management issues. Benefits are okay except for the health insurance, very high out of pocket before they cover anything. My co-workers were wonderful if only the higher-ups would have taken their employees complaint seriously.
Digital Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) – Mettawa, IL – April 13, 2018
Brunswick has the best company culture that you can look for with a large employer. The company rewards their employees with generous time off, stock options, yearly merit increases and solid medical benefits. The atmosphere is inviting and filled with hard working leaders and employees who truly have a team player attitude.
