Project Administrator (Former Employee) – North Haven, CT – June 14, 2019
I was a Project Administrator responsible for three different business units with many different departments. I enjoyed working with others and the many different job responsibilities I had. The management teams was great to work with and the workplace culture was professional and fun at the same time. The hardest part of the job was leaving it. The most enjoyable part of the job were the people.
Credit &Collections Administrator (Current Employee) – Mansfield, MA – June 14, 2019
It's difficult to critique because the company is closing so there is no future. There is not a happy environment and most other peoples work ethic is lacking but I try to keep a professional and ethical outlook with a smile.
Sorting and inspecting lead wires and DVT's (Former Employee) – Riverview, FL – June 3, 2019
It was my first job here in Florida after moving here from Michigan. Had to learn things quickly and mostly by myself, since we didn't have a lot of employees at the time (this location just got started the year before).
I got to work closely with engineers, the sales team and our plant manager was greatly involved in the process as well.
Was a great athmosphere to work in and great people to work with
Can't think of anything bad to say, since the company merged with Medtronic shortly after I got hired
RA Associate (Former Employee) – City of Saint Louis, MO – May 14, 2019
During my time working for Covidien, the management was constantly forcing the employees to do more work, for not more money, and while downsizing. Workers who did what they could to keep up with the increased workloads were not reworded with anything but the constant expectation that they were to continue with the maxed out efforts.
Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Seneca, SC – March 26, 2019
A typical work day is on the line., training and making sure product meets quality measures. I was surprised when they abruptly closed, the culture was diverse and the hardest part of the job was safety.
Inservice Coordinator (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 12, 2019
I did the job only a couple of times, giving inservices regarding a new product which had been introduced which was intended to eliminate finger sticks with used syringes. The work was fun, the pace was fast, and the day went by quickly.
The job was temporary, unfortunately, because I would have loved to secure employment at Covidien. I may still attempt to reach out and see if they have any positions open which would be appropriate for me.
Sr. Operation Lead (Former Employee) – Plymouth, MN – February 19, 2019
Covidien no longer exists. It will be unfair for me to rank a company that no longer exist. Please understand that i will not be able to give a fair assessment to that effect. All i can say is, i enjoyed my time at Covidien.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Hobart, NY – February 13, 2019
Senior management would take credit for lower management's ideas. Senior management would also throw lower management under the bus if they felt threatened. I kept referring to the production superintendent by name. One of my employees eventually asked who I was talking about. The 2nd shift employees had never met him. The pay was good, but in no ways balances the stress of a toxic work environment.
associate (Former Employee) – Joliet, IL – February 11, 2019
I didn't learn much from this job that I didn't already know. Except how medical supplies are packaged and shipped. The management were just fine. Although some of my coworkers were less than pleasant to work with.
Manufacturing Technician II (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – January 1, 2019
Liked the job itself. Did not like the indecision among management. the rotating work schedule along with the hours worked were the most difficult I ever had. All employees were often asked to commit to jobs beyond the scope of what they were hired to do. It was never enough to just do a good job in the area in which you were hired. When you did commit to more then in turn more was asked of you. Management would not only ask but pressure you. I am not opposed to going above and beyond however it never seemed to end. There was a never ending change in management and site directors. You you always had to learn new rules and policies only having to do it again in a short time when new management was brought in. Lack of communication and cooperation between shifts.
Good salary and benefits
Never ending rule changes. Frequent changes in management
