Powercore utility production (Current Employee) – Cresco, IA – July 28, 2018
Very friendly people work here . We all work on production lines as a team. Supervisors are very easy going if you do your job. Working 7 days a week right now. In all the years I've worked here, this happens and it's nice to save extra money.
Good team, workers.
Shortbreaks, very hot in summer, unfair upper management
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – July 19, 2018
They need to figure out how to give people at least 2 weekends off each month - permanently.
I enjoyed the work atmosphere, the union involvement, the opportunity for job changes and advancement. However, being made to work 6 days a week for years with only an occasional surprise Saturday off (with not enough warning to make plans, anyway) is not easy for most people, so there is a very high turnover rate for new employees.
Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – July 10, 2018
Working at Donaldson Company was my most challenging experience and at the same time the best I could have been part of. Professional people surrounded by and helping me a lot on my projects and future plans. It was very special because of the atmosphere I was working on. Big projects were assign to me and I felt very important for my small part I could contribute. The information I provided with a different background and culture was listened and respected by all the employees on meetings and during projects.
Good company to work for if you can meet their high standards. Not the ideal place for shy people or intoverts.
International Trade Services Representative (Current Employee) – Bloomington, MN – June 14, 2018
Face paced, time goes by quickly - never have nothing to do. Workload is always high and often stressful. Management is so, so - each does as they choose with their employees. There seems to be no set guidelines which is kind of nice because everyone's situation is different. Able to work from home. Very diverse company with many different cultures. Individuals with a degree seem to be liked more Pays well
Good pay, great benenfits, flexible policies, abilty to work from home
Workload is way to high and there are no streamlined processes
Decent pay, communication. Culture does have room for improvment
Logistic Supervisor (Current Employee) – Frankfort, IN – June 3, 2018
Decent pay, communication. Culture does have room for improvement. The company does seem to be heading in a better direction. They have treated me well and helped me to become the strong leader I am today.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – May 15, 2018
Horrible work culture both with Management and floor people. People are cut-throat and toxic and protected by friendships with promoted supervisors. If you dont fit in or go along with the toxic atmosphere you will be singled out and either leave or be terminated or threatened. Poor decision making by floor supervision who are "blocker" in the company, meaning: they do not have the skill or education to move up. They do recognize service to the company with awards.
Fair pay, Benefits.
Toxic work environment, no team work, bad management.
Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI 54481 – April 25, 2018
Worked long hours, on call 24/7, had to take work with me on vacation, roles that I was not trained for or qualified for were thrust upon me, given roles that amounted to basically several full time positions, and I could go on. I do not recommend working there.
