Its hard but with the right people the day can go by
Helper (Former Employee) – Maryland – August 14, 2018
A typical day at work would be getting there at five in the morning before the place is open and when it does we got to move quickly so we can be on the road before any traffic happens.By the time we get there where all ways cleaning up after someone else.The first few steps are really easy to do but when it comes down to installing the carpet there's about three to four steps before doing anything.After a good amount of carpeting is done we set down to eat for about 20 to 30 minutes and get back to it and at this point where drinking water because of the heat.When where done with the job we clean up are mess to put plastic on top to keep the carpet clean and we put anything we moved back where it was,after that we lock up and start the drive back home

This could be a great place to work if there wasn't so many interpersonal issues, there appears to be a lot of favoritism. Pay is around what the area is, and the health insurance is extremely fair. While other branches of the company do allow room for advancement this one is to small to allow that.

this place is real good to work in if you don't mind being harassed by the seniors of the workplace and the supervisors. I guess you can say that you'd have to be connected with either supervisors or managers to succeed.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 10, 2018
it was very hot in summer and very cold in winter. The company would rather employ drones than hire and keep Quality people that will perform duties in the highest regard to making quality parts for the customer.

Loader/Checker (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – May 9, 2018
The pay is good when you start out depending on what department you are hired into, but there is really no advancement if there is a job that opens up within another department. There are a lot of turnover from employees, because of the excessive rules and guidelines that the employee must adhere too. Once you punch in for work, you are not allowed to go outside on your breaks. You only get two 15 min paid breaks on your shift. Because of this, if you are a smoker, you are not allowed to smoke while on company time. Just before work and after work in your own car. The management is really bad. They like to show favoritism with the employees, and not write up or fire anybody for breaking the rules that have been set in place. If you are a person who is active on social media with your phone, I would not recommend working here, because you will get fired on the spot. Never was a problem with me, since I left my cell phone in the car while at work. Some employees have a great work ethic to get the job done, while some just do the bare minimum to get paid for the week.
Good Pay, Good hours
Short breaks, Poor management, No advancement, Favoritism, Rules and Guidelines.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – April 17, 2018
Everyday i punched in at 1:54 and go to my department which was consumer. Get my schedule for the day and start getting my materials together. The forklift driver brought them to me. I then either ran a machine or was on the floor. If i was on the hole punch machine then i would simply take the pillows on the monorail off and through my machine which then would punch the pillow putting holes through it for a air flowed pillows on the stocking net machine then i just wait for the pillow to go through the hole punch and on to my belt which then i would put through my machine and it sealed stocking net around the pillow and then i would throw it on the other belt which goes through the stuffer machine. Where the stuffer person will put the pillow case on the pillow depending on what kind of pillow it is. Then whoever is on t he floor packs it out and gets it through the tape machine to tape the box shut and the robot stacks the boxes. then the forklift driver takes it to be shipped.
Custodian 2 years full time industrial (Former Employee) – Conover, NC – April 3, 2018
Carpenter was a great learning experience I hate the fact that they have senority ruling over those who are new comers trying to make it my job was bumped into feathers and I found out I was allergic due to being sick having coughing all the time breathing problems ear infections and bronchitis I was not expecting to be alleric.
benefits and pay
hours cut and job bumped unexpectdly at the last minute
The job had to get done right and on time. In this job you can learn things for your own usage. We are talking about home wise, how to build your own cabinets/dressers. It was fun in a way also i am not going to lie.
Sew Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fogelsville, PA – February 11, 2018
Everyone worked together. I started work at 630a and worked till 7p. I walked in put my stuff away and walked to punch clock. After I punched in I went to my work station. The work was fast paced and quality oriented.
CUSTOMER CARE REPRESENTATIVE (Former Employee) – Albert Lea, MN – January 28, 2018
I enjoyed working here because I did feel as though as I was part of a team... from the front office to the workers in the plant, we all knew each other and got along well. I was always treated fairly there for the most part and would not have left had I not been laid off.
