Too much favoritism, managers do not work, pay is terrible, worst corporation to work for, managers job promotions are never kept . Managers put their failures off on employees.. certain employees get favoritism and job slackers get away with everything. Never work here! Worst mistake you could ever make! Branch managers and Human Resources will not protect you. They will cover and lie to your face.
The Warrensburg facility management is an absolute mess. Very high turn over rate because of a dysfunctional culture from the top down. Poor training, blame everyone for your mistakes, never listen to lower level employees, egos, on and on. Every trait of a toxic work environment. Just don’t.
The environment is very positive. The corporate campus is modern and equipped with amenities like an onsite gym, a cafeteria staffed with a chef. The company is growing and modernizing its it infrastructure.
Some of the jobs are very physical demanding, but the pay is based on your exposure to lead, so the pay for those physical jobs are not as good as it should be. Management doesn't listen to workers, they only care about their schedule and making numbers. They will have you come in and do a job your not trained on just to get product out, even though its not safe.
The company has changed considerably over the last five years. Many valuable people have either been fired or left due to upper management, bringing in new people to run the company. These people have now brought in their new people and the business has suffered as a consequence. The business was very profitable and has since started to hemorrhage money due to poor decisions by the C-Suite. People who actually have a clue are either not listened to or ignored. The CEO has been buying other companies as way to increase stock prices but all built as a house of cards. Too many new people in high level decisions that are feeding the pipeline with ideas that have not been thought out. Manufacturing, Sales, Quality, and Engineering are all working in silos. CEO basically lies every shareholder call, CTO has good vision but ZERO execution. New product promised years ago are still not even close to being ready for production. CEO has eliminated almost the entire workforce that started the company. Does not have finger on the pulse of the company. Only the new lower level people are happy at the company, but they do not know the serious trouble the company is really in.
Alpha Power was purchased by Enersys and there were immediate negative impacts. A number of positions were eliminated and their responsibilities distributed to other employees who already had more to do than they could reasonably accomplish in a standard shift. I was one of those employees. When I was told I would be required to work a twelve hour shift, as a salaried employee, I tried to negotiate with my manager to no avail. As a result, I resigned from the company.
Battery Finisher (Former Employee) - Richmond, KY - December 13, 2019
Enersys is a large battery company that is very well organized and the staff is helpful and friendly.. the hours can be long and working with lead can be dangerous but you are given the knowledge and equipment to be in a safe environment
Worked at santa fe springs location for almost 3 years, got along with everyone, was always on time, never said no to task that they would assign to me and management never promoted me... never got noticed for my effort.... worked weekends and also somedays graveyard.. never got a raise or promoted for field tech position... I asked they said not yet... I had more experience than people that they were hiring with ZERO experience and I WAS teaching them?? Made no sense to me that I was teaching/showing other how to work on batteries and chargers when they were making alot more money than me..... if it makes no money it makes no sense..... so I quit.... the END
I learned how to make batteries and assemble them. I enjoyed the people I worked with. And the hardest part of the job was testing the batteries because if they were bad you would have to open up the battery and find out what was wrong with the battery.
Locally this company is a revolving door. Management is horrible and changed as often as socks. Bonuses seem to be terminated right before the goal is met. Safety is a huge issue at this plant due to lack of proper training and tired people working machines they are not trained on. Huge disconnect within this company on so many levels because communication is just non existent. This company has literally ruined a good reputation within the local community
Be nice if they hired other then through a temp agency because the pay wasnt worth the task I completed and working for thw temp agency was taking most of the pay which is why they should hire good people like me that was able to do the job and keep hard at work and duties that were assigned to me
