Not a healthy trustworthy company
Maintenance Manager (Former Employee) –  Kansas City, KSJuly 16, 2018
I don't recommend this facility to anyone at any level. The place is a mess, terrible air quality, no training or SOP's just word of mouth, they do not blame the process and point fingers at the employee.

Stressful Horrible Place to Work
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Wixom, MIJuly 13, 2018
If working for an organization that looses business constantly, is always on the brink of bankruptcy (again), never gives raises, is managed by two individuals who don't have a clue, with a co-worker who backstabs you and others to management, with ZERO room for advancement...

This is the place for you....
Pros

Cons
Long Hours, No Raises, Lack of Business Growth

Good Money, Terrible management
Universal Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, PAJune 20, 2018
Terrible management. Right from your direct supervisor to the higher up. As an employee I feel very under valued and there’s a ridiculous amount of nepotism as well as rules not applying to some people. One person would be quickly terminated, suspended or generally reprimanded for breaking a rule but others will catch a break for the same thing.
Pros
Pay, Benefits
Cons
Management, Mandatory overtime

Material Handler
Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Salina, KSJune 18, 2018
Typical day at work is dependent on your position. They con you in with a 3 days on 4days on strategy. You get your proper schedule for about 2 weeks then are forced 72+ hrs a week. Only good shift out there is day shift. Day shift gets paid decent, leaves early, an doesn't require 72+ hr work weeks. Very good pay however managers determine your employment. You can do your job very well and properly yet still get terminated. Warehouses are way outdated, have to remember all battery types by location and number; nothings really labeled in the warehouses as it is all ran down needs redesigned. They mix an RF system with an old paper system very confusing at times. Managers can be extremely rude, if you have a family and are not on A shift your relationships will be ruined. Lead is an issue can cause major problems.
Pros
Paid very well
Cons
Managers, Hours

It Pays The Bills
Wet Formation Operator/Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Manchester, IAJune 16, 2018
Its one of the better paying jobs in the surrounding areas. It's a hazardous environment to work in and can be dangerous to your health. The hours can vary from 40 hours per week to over 60.

Good job for good pay
Universal Operator (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, PAMay 30, 2018
You would take over for the shift that was there before you when you first come in. You have to pay good attention to your parts that you make. Management is always taking suggestions into consideration. I feel like other roles there should be paid more.
Pros
Paid lunches, paid vacation, some days are really easy on you.
Cons
Short breaks, hot inside, barely any opportunities to get a raise or higher up role.

lead
Warehouse Lead (Current Employee) –  Decatur, GAMay 21, 2018
opportunity for advancement is minimized and you are expected to save the day without any teamwork. the more you do, the more they will expect out of you with no growth attached.

hostile and unhealthy enviroment
Machine Operator/Production (Former Employee) –  Fort Smith, ARMay 18, 2018
your worked to death in the summer with temps in the plant reaching 130 and laid off in the winter. lay offs are every year and can be longer than 6 mos. the management will hire you then look for ways to fire you. your not treated with respect for the skills you bring to the job or just human respect period. you are required to give a blood sample every 3 mos to keep track of your lead count. However the workers there for the most part are good people.
Pros
pay is good
Cons
Heat, long hours, unhealthy enviroment

Place to figure out next steps
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Milton, GAMay 7, 2018
This place has a lot of turn over. New management fosters an US vs.Them attitude, that harms the business because much of the knowledge is in the old guard.

The CEO was hard to trust to lead the company, due to his management team hires, who were then quickly turned over.

Existing people refuse to take ownership for fear of being thrown under the bus.
Pros
Your work group can become your work family
Cons
Tribal attitudes between departments/teams.

Excellent People to Work With
Engineer (Current Employee) –  Milton, GAMay 2, 2018
Upper management is suffocating the company. Huge cuts to key employees with no contingency plan. Unclear what the business plan is. Granted there has been 2 bankruptcies, the third is on the way.
Pros
Excellent Professionals to work with
Cons
Upper Management

District Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Belle Vernon, PAApril 26, 2018
There is a huge lack of communication in the entire company. Managers are provided with very little information, but expected to come out with the best results. The technology is lacking especially for this type of company.

Fair pay and life/work balance but not promoting from within
Supply Chain (Current Employee) –  Milton, GAApril 6, 2018
Many positives offset by major negatives. Wasn't always this way but many older employees have been pushed out in favor of "new blood," leading to a downgrade in talent and ability in places. Going new for the sake of it is a bad plan when not having exceptions. Management making needed moves at plants.

Not the best job
Driver/Operator (Former Employee) –  Saint Louis County, MOMarch 29, 2018
Very little direction given to understand what's expected of you right away. Management is hard on you very early. No job security, if they want to get rid of you it will happen.

stepping stone

good place to start out after college. was a stepping stone to better job. my manager was good, but my heart wasn't in the work so it wasn't very fulfilling.
