Excellent, progressive company
Operations Associate (Current Employee) –  Strongsville, OHMay 16, 2019
I have found Eberhard to be an excellent, progressive company. They are extremely busy with sales increasing significantly each year.

There is new leadership which is driving a new and exciting strategic direction for the company. Solid markets and solid products are driving growth.

Workplace environment is high performance - but fun. Definitely into CI and making the company better. However, there is a sense of work hard, play hard. Excellent co workers.
Pros
Growing, awesome co-workers, competitive pay
Cons
piece rate pay system

Run run run away
Machinist Operator (Former Employee) –  Strongsville, OHMay 13, 2019
They are a piece rate shop.It is also a union shop.People will pull seniority on you all day long.You will also come across extreme trouble makers who love to set people up.Jealousy is a big issue there.Fighting over money jobs,tattling and setting people up when they are the ones doing it.Lying and skeaming to get better pay jobs.Managment pitts workers against each other relaying conversations held between supervisors and worker then telling lead person who spreads what was discussed all over the shop.Inspectors if they dont like your looks if your not attractive enough and dont flirt with them if woman or your a attractive man will refuse to approve your parts and sign off on inspection playing games and waste your time forcing you to be Idle for great amounts of time.Managment has meetings and come out with horrible attitudes towards workers.Playing games refusing to answer the office door yes you have to stand at supervisors door and wait for him to allow you to enter.He will play games and make you stand there for up to 20 minutes ignoring you when you need help.They play favorites in press dept and machine shop and heavy bench.New people often jump right over senior operators depending on there looks.There are a lot of gossipers who create a ton of un truths ganging up on other workers .Jealousy is a very big problem there.Training is horrible new people are left clueless relying on the people who work there to help them and when you do your yelled at and told dont speak to them.The wages are above for this type of work due to a union contract and you do get very good  more... medical with a weekly pay check.Every day you walk in the door someone is starting gossip and trouble .They rush you to get jobs set up but operators are forgetting a ton of stuff in the process.Managment is horrible there they dont protect you in ways you should be and they are behind a lot of people leaving.The biggest Issue is the workers use there union to get them out of trouble when there the ones creating it trying to get others fired.  less

weekly pay check medical dental insurance

Great pay but work sucked
Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Strongsville, OHApril 23, 2019
The pay was great with yearly raises because of the union contract, but everyone will throw you under a bus to get ahead. They are the only place I worked that required over 100% labor rate, 125% rate to be exact. The dies are old and are usually patched back together but are in need of being rebuilt. The supervisors put average shop earnings ahead of everything else and most won’t even talk to you, but will pull a lead from across the shop to help you fix a problem.
Upper management is clueless about everything and they are constantly trying to “raise and rebuild” shop morale but any suggestions are ignored. If the shift inspector doesn’t like you, good luck being issued the calipers and micrometers needed to do your job, they will always be on back order.
Also expect to get dirtier here than at any other shop, every press is at least 20 years old and is constantly leaking grease and oil onto the operator, but the office bathrooms were recently remodeled.

This is the worst place to work, run don’t walk away from them.
Pros
Pay.
Cons
Management, supervisors, coworkers, union politics
