Good leader and supervisors. But safety is a big issue among other employees. I don't blame the supervisor he can not be everything where. With the influx of new employees communication is also an issue some of witch is others do not speak English that well or refuse to .
The company is loyal to their employees and way too loyal to North Dakota. The field employees spend long hours on the road for pay that is less than competitive and are often spread too thin. The overall company culture is positive. Unfortunately their manufacturing side is a mess, which spills over into all other aspects of the business. There is little accountability for product quality, production goals, any sort of engineering deadlines, or launch dates. It is clearly difficult to find high quality talent to live in Fargo or the plant location in Gwinner, ND.
Lenient travel policy, good benefits, 3 weeks starting vacation, modern corporate headquarters facility
Long hours, manufacturing and engineering issues are often felt throughout the company
I interned here years ago. It gave me great experience in what to expect from my first big-kid job, and provided insight into office life. I learned a lot about organization and time management, as well as how to be a good employee.
Very stressful. Leadership is very numbers driven and safety is of absolute no concern. They do not follow core values they brag about from the Vice President down to the leads. Quality of workmanship doesnt matter as long as you get your quota for the day. We work mandatory 60 hour weeks which leaves no time for appointments, banking, shopping for needs, or spending time with family. If you have kids, dont work here. If you have special needs, dont work here, if you have kids with special needs, dont work here. You will not last with their sickness policies and they do not care about you or your family. Backlog of Bobcats is more important.
Half hour lunch break on a 10 hour day
Very little breaks, very thankless, and a lots of favortisim, backstabbing, and let downs
Painter/Laborer (Former Employee) – Litchfield, MN – April 8, 2018
Very bad management, that don't care about the employee's all they want to get there numbers. The steal is sitting in the all types of weather that rusts and they paint right over the rust. Night diff sucks. Days can get away with anything they want. Continuing to run out of parts every week then wait 1 month to get them in. Highly recommended to not work here.
Pay is ok, benefits
Management is poor, no company appreciation, work like a slave
I co-oped here during college. I worked on the manufacturing side and did not require any technical engineering knowledge. I worked with engineers but the quality control department was mostly reactionary to issues caused by labors or vendor defective products. I did however gain a prospective into how vendors and subcontractors are integrated into new product manufacturing.
1.5x paid overtime
No paid vacation, insurance, or 401k option for temporary employees

If you can handle the people, you'll be ok there. Some folks appreciate the job and others are there to just bring you down. Most nights and days are ok, some are boring, others you need to work your butt off.
This is a fast paced industry, but the management provides an excellent environment to work and be productive. employees are compensated well and taken care of. This is a company I would gladly work for long term.
