General Assembly (Former Employee) –  Groveland, FLSeptember 10, 2018
I won’t recommend this postion to anyone. Poor supervision, lack of training, poor working conditions and able to lift 100lbs without assistance. This position is a two man job.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
Poor supervision/ lack of training

niche work that will keep you less competitive
Field Tech (Former Employee) –  FLSeptember 5, 2018
These people will ask you to put your life on hold for them. They think that their company is the Fort Knox of companies.
Well they're not.
To get hired you have to have like five interviews with their staff, and have a minimum of three supervisor level or above references.
They are currently looking to hire HVACR professional because of new tech they've come out with. Beware. They offer salary pay to benefit them. Niche market. Plenty of better companies out their that require less to be hired. And pay by hour with overtime.
Pros
You make your own scheduale.
Cons
No overtime.

Great Job Stability
N/A (Current Employee) –  Bedford, PAAugust 17, 2018
They have a lot of great benefits and incentives. It is is a place where you are expected to show up every day and work hard. If you do that, there are a lot of incentives. Management is fair. Raises are fair and performance based. You will see management out on the floor working more than the average place. This is the type of place that is laborious and expects it's employees to work hard and be present, but you get what you give. The more dedicated you are, the more incentives you will see. This is a place you can move up through advancement as well.
Pros
Hard Laborious work
Cons
Great benefits, great incentives, opportunities to make more money, Fair Management

Job that makes planning anything Monday through Friday nearly impossible
General Labor (Former Employee) –  Bedford, PAJuly 30, 2018
Management at the PA plant is so obsessed with being the number one plant in the company that they take on more orders than they can handle. Shift is said to end at 2:30 but honestly only ends by then or near then maybe 1 day out of every 2 or 3 weeks. Layout and shipping departments are the 2 worst departments to work for. If you do decide to take a job here, those 2 departments were the ones who were always there before and after all the rest.
Pros
Free lunches once or twice a month
Cons
Management, lack of communication

Fun environment with friendly people
Press Brake Operator (Former Employee) –  West Union, IAApril 8, 2018
A Monday thru Friday work week with some Saturdays. The latest start time was 7 am. but we were allowed to come in at 4 and get done earlier in the day to enjoy the afternoon. Everyone was very friendly and a lot of us were all involved in similar events and activities outside of work. The supervisors are very helpful and know not only how to work their designated areas but other areas as well. Overall great place to start a career with advancement.
Pros
Monthly rewards and meals
Cons
Working saturdays

Not the greatest place to work
Parts manufacturer (Former Employee) –  Bedford, PAApril 3, 2018
Wouldn't be a bad place to work with better management. Raises, promotions, and days off are strictly based on favoritism. Work ethic, quality, production, knowledge and attendance don't matter as long as you suck up to the management. Unlike most normal places you don't have a quitting time so it's hard to plan things or make appointments. You might get off at 2:30 one day and 5:30 the next. If there were more places to work in the area this place would never keep a full staff. Management only cares about themselves and their money. No thought, care, or respect is shown toward employees what so ever.
Pros
Company lunch and decent benefits
Cons
Stressful and unfair treatment of employees

Terrible job and Bedford plant manager is terrible
Worker (Former Employee) –  Bedford, PAJanuary 22, 2018
They treat their employees like a dog, expecting them to work unreasonable hours. The plant manager at Bedford has absolutely no experience for the job and no personality at all. Talks down to you all the time unless you suck up to him. The engineers have no clue what their doing either. Upper management is also a joke.
Cons
The whole job

Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCNovember 28, 2017
Management was very open to progressive and innovative ideas. They have built a great culture that promotes quality and efficiency, but the reward stays with everybody (great bonus structure).

The company was overall a great experience, they have a morning shift and a swing shift. Swing you're primarily working alone. Mathematics is helpful while working in layout.

Good Job
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Muskogee, OKOctober 11, 2017
Typically you will only work for 8 hours although there are times when you could work from 10 to 12 hours in a day. The work day is determined by the amount of orders for the day and how quickly you can get them done. My supervisor was great and upper management had its moments. There is a very typical feel to the job in the sense that there are definitely favorites. Some of the things they get away with make you scratch your head! However if you can get past that, it's a super easy job. I loved most of the people I worked with and had I not relocated I would still be there today!!! Vacation time was earned. The first few years you would earn 8 hours of vacation for each month worked. One of the things that was not so positive was the fact that you generally did not know or get advanced notices of when you were going to have to work more than the 8 hour shift. The company would bring in free lunch from different restaurants around town, once a month.
Pros
Management, Coworkers, pay
Cons
Schedules, from time to time management
