Management was very much put the fire out and not deal with the problem. If you were identified as a good worker then you and other good workers would be given the majority of the work while the not so good workers were able to keep a job and not do much.
Was a really good company until new management came in.
CNC Operator (Former Employee) – Shawnee, OK 74804 – February 22, 2019
My tenure at eaton's shawnee site started out outstanding and one reason why was they were 6 million dollars behind the day i started. They were working 7 days a week 3 shifts. I stayed with it for 5 years until one time i asked the first shift supervisor to have the weekend off. He refused. I said to him i make more part's than anyone else and I'm tired after 5 years of it. He says" what you want doesn't matter you're second string". 98% g.u. and what i want doesn't matter. I was floored! My g.u.did not drop!!! This is a true statement. It can proven. Favoritism is not a good attribute for a supervisor either. Until management changes, the eaton site won't.
Need better on the Job Training for new employees (temps) included,. Line leaders needs better people skills, Management is great over all. The hardest part of the job, you have to wait three hours for first break. The most enjoyable part of the day, most employee are friendly and get along well with others.
DIVISION GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 17, 2019
The culture at Eaton is primarily technical and driven by engineering leadership. There is little strategic planning or "out of the box" thinking. They are extremely conservative and will not engage in market leadership activities.
They do provide an excellent management training curriculum so it is a wonderful place for a new manager seeking to learn the basics of management principles and business technologies.

Shipping Receiving Administrative (Former Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – February 15, 2019
This is a fast passed job and I enjoyed it they are mid level company but it's fast pass and you need to be able to keep up with the work.They deal with led lighting and they deal with large companies providing lighting fixtures.
Felt undervalued, they never gave me any finance work (I was a finance intern)
INTERN (Current Employee) – Hastings, NE – February 12, 2019
I felt a undervalued, like they were just waiting for my internship to be done. Never had enough work to do, and I constantly had to find work that needed around the office such as filing. Ended up going and working at the deburrer to kill time, while getting paid significantly less than most factory workers.
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) – Southfield, MI – February 12, 2019
The department I worked in had a bunch of engineers all working on each other's projects meaning a given person was managing one project and participating in four others meaning that less than 20% of a person's time was dedicated to any one thing. That's a little nonsensical, but when you were making an effort to contribute to a given project it was very enjoyable to develop new solutions and invent new processes.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Searcy, AR – February 12, 2019
I learned a lot from my time at Eaton about the continuous improvement culture. It is a very committed company to CI and improving the operations. The only negative experience I had was with a manager and the up and down of the market segment. During my tenure, the company experienced 3 layoffs--very stressful.
Rules were fair. Good attendance policy. Helpful culture. Training available. Did not like interdepartmental. I was a tech and had to do assembly work because of shortage of workers sometimes. Clean climate controlled environment.
Worker 6 (Former Employee) – Ellisville, – February 10, 2019
management makes poor decisions based on what they want as oppose to what is best for the company and instead of spending the money to upgrade equipment and facility they are selling out the workers by sending all operations to Mexico for cheaper labor they cater to certain persons advancement based on seniority instead of knowledge and experience
A typical day at work is hectic and takes a strong mind to multitask many demands. There are many new employees with senior employees moving on to other opportunities or retiring. At this time, it is time for a change with new challenges. The hardest part of the job is competing when there should be more teamwork. Teamwork is highly stated by all means but you are also to compete against each other.
