Good place to work. Management concerned about colleagues.

I worked for Energizer 37 years. I was in payroll and accounting. I loved my job there. I worked with very good people that were willing to help everyone out. I retired in 2018. I am just looking for part-time work now.

Fast paced but disorganized place to work

Mechanically easy, but training can be extensive depending on what station you are placed. Machines are extremely outdated, and things are constantly broke down. Management and schedule planning are extremely unoriganized, and lots of toxicity in terms of morale. Very unprofessional team leaders.

Don’t do it unless your desperate

Management is good ol boy club that protect their buddies on the floor but expect you to play by the rules. HR is horrible also.. The place is a shell of what it used to be and it is absolutely filthy from the bathrooms to the break rooms(cockroaches everywhere) . All the equipment barely runs and is “duct taped “ to keep running but your expected to hit numbers. Have to use vacation days to cover sick days they don’t give you

Pros

Not a lot

Cons

A lot

Energizer is so long as it looks good on paper place

Health insurance you may as well not have any extremely high deductible. Dental subpar, Vision was OK. You get a decent amount of pto but good luck trying to use it. If you get sick even with being hospitalized and a doctors note you can be pointed and disciplined for calling off due to that illness. I think a few may have even been terminated. They want you too take on roles well beyond your pay grade and if you refuse to preform those task without compensation they let you go. You will find your boss, quality, maintenance, engineers, etc really haven't the first clue as too what's going on. You are on your own.

The worse place to work

1. Managers are very not supportive and rude.2. There is no life-work balance. You work late nights to complete task.3. No guidance whatsoever will be given to you. You are on your own.

Pros

Nothing

Everything

Basic factory work

Great work life balance. Great Pay. Managers, maintenance and support on the other hand, needs improvement. I would recommend this job to anyone who needs a time filler.

Pros

Steady work

Cons

No room for career growth

Management lacks direction. Little to no room for growth. Fellow workers have spent 20+ years at same level...no advancement. If you are in the popular groups, then you may have advancement opportunities.

Energetic, competitive and FUN

The company was overall a great place to work for. They care and support their employees, kept me updated with product, sales and upcoming promotions.

Energizer auto care

Since it is still new to Energizer there is some growing pains as Energizer installs its corporate management system. The communication and rolling our of programs from corporate to the plant site is not great. However the plant leadership is moving in the right direction. The plant is very culturally diverse.Many people are remote which can lead to more meetings than probably necessary. The company culture is still young.

Productive qork environment.

Energizer was a good company to work for management really seemed to cate about employees. Only reason I left was to homeschool during covid. Shifts are long but you get half the year off . It balances off.

Pros

3 days off every other week

Improving

They are trying to improve the way the company runs the day to day operations. Right know a lot of turn over in management and engineers. They are trying to head in a new direction.

Can be great after a few fixes

Could be an awesome place to work with new managers. You can only advance if you are friends with management or willing to sell your soul to the devil. Work schedules are fair and pay is better than most places. They just pay who they like more then the others doing the same job that they don't care for.

Management sucks

It would be helpful to have a manager who actually backed the employees and didn't have favorites. Lack of staffing is eminent and we all know why, the overall poor management team is what is causing this plant to fail. The pay is decent however the drama and the attitude of most staff members is not worth it.

Good job

The guys you work with make the job worth while. They pay is great. The benefits are decent. Steady work. Entry level schedule is Monday - Friday. Shift work is after several promotions

Dishonest company

Look elsewhere for employment. This is not a good place to work. They or to get you in the door and the pay is always incorrect. Benefits are less than desirable.

Great place to work

Very laid back company with a lot of good employees. Management is very fair. My main problem is needing more maintenance employees. The hardest part of my job is there are some days you are by yourself to fix machines.

Good workplace. Toxic contract help

SMX management is terrible and toxic. All supervisors and managers are great except the plant manager. Wants more than a reasonable amount of work from everyone.

Management brings you down

Management obviously has more of a warehouse background than a manufacturing background. What you would consider common practice, they deliberate on how to achieve it and more often than not it is the most unproductive decision that is reached. They tell you that they only promote from within and that it is a great company to grow with, but thats only accurate if you have a bachelor's degree in a specific field, in which case you wouldn't be operating a machine for a living. They tell you that you will have a 40 hour schedule and then inform you on your first day that it's actually 60 hours and they've never quite made it efficient enough to run the 40 hours. Again, management is their own worst enemy here as they make the most inefficient decisions you could possibly make and that try to understand why efficiency is their worst metric.

Pros

The actual work isn't taxing at all

Cons

Schedule, Management
Was this review helpful?

You will be put in any position that is needed and you will work overtime and weekends regularly.

This is a rough job for anyone that is looking to have a good life/work balance as there is a lot of overtime and very little paid time off. There is a hit system where you can take days off as you please unpaid.

Pros

Unpaid leave at any time.

Cons

Very little paid leave. Messy management.
