Priorities change with the wind. Poor management.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Worked in cylinders assembly line. One day you are told to give feedback, them you are scolded for saying your opinion. Tell you you will be cross trained and then stuck in one place for years with continuous promises and no follow through.

Pros

Cafeteria, Coworkers, Benefits

Cons

Management, Politics

Management and Supervisor

They are unorganized and watch over your shoulder every 15 to 30 minutes. When there's a machine problem that they already know about, they still expect you to get your quarter knowing that it's impossible to get good numbers. Very knit picking company with cameras every where watching your every move and they keep track and how many times you go to the bathroom and minutes you spend in there

Job security is good as long as you're doing your job..

There's not much room for a lot of advancement. The pay should be higher with better pay increases. Insurance is high but vacation time is great just can't afford to use it unless you are management to actually go away for a week. Day shift is treated better then second shift with more things to do and enjoy then seconds. Like past bowling team/softball team joining,playing. Lunch room has a chef and hot cooked food but only for day shift employees and management. Not much food in machines for rest of employees. Can't go out anywhere to eat-restaurants too far away for 30 min. lunch break.It is air-conditioned, nice locker rooms

Pros

4 week paid vacation at start of hiring. Pay is ok. Monthly/ yearly bonuses.

Cons

Pay increases suck. Lots of employee turnover.

Cons

No breaks, overwork you, treated unfair. Fire people and have you pick up their job to!

Abundant growth opportunity

Festo has supported my growth as a professional and has been a place where I could really leave my mark on an organization. Local leadership has recently changed and I feel that I preferred the approach and culture of the previous leadership, but there is always some measure of growing pains during a leadership change.

Clean work environment and safe. Supervisors need more training in terms of communicating work procedures and assignments. Getting employees what they need to be successful and to support companies mission and goals.

Pros

Some treats

Cons

Short breaks

Inefficient workplace, pay and benefits okay

Not many SOPs. New hire onboarding and training for new hires needs a lot of improvement. Overall, the pay is decent and the benefits are okay. One benefit that is lacking is maternity/paternity leave.

Challenging with no real guidance

At first this company is a slow starter. The training is incomplete with materials that they are setup for. You will learn most from your mistakes. Make to many and you will be in trouble. Pay is negotiable but the drive is not worth it if you are coming from the valley.

Pros

Recognition

Cons

Management is a clutter no real plan of action

Impressive Facility Poor Work Atmosphere and Pay

Was offered a job through a contract from a temporary service as a warehouse associate on second shift. Was given a briefing on company policies and tour then taken to my workstation. Stood in one place packing pneumatic parts/devices all night feet aching, nobody to chat with and nothing to listen to but the hum of the conveyor and no feel of accomplishment looking down the line of 100 more totes coming toward you...

Very fun work place

Start your day with finding out what the need is in each department and get your parts set up your work station and build your product untill you finish or end of shift.
