Too many reports to do take time away from face to face meetings with customers. Your worth is measured based on SalesForce activities and data entries.

Live to work vs work to live
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Evendale, OHMarch 22, 2018
When you sign the acceptance letter for this job, be advised you are signing your work/life balance away. You will be forced into 12 hour days regardless if you want to work it or not. In some cases you can work 12 hour days, 7 days a week, for multiple months. This really is a company that does not care about their employees, no matter what type of front they may put on.

If you live to work though, this is the place to work. Some individuals work 16 hour days and absolutely love it.
Pros
Good pay for minimally intensive labor
Cons
Work/life balance, management

Great place to work
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Evendale, OHMarch 4, 2018
There are a lot of fun co-workers here. The jobs are fairly easy to learn. One must have the ability to pay attention to detail and adhere to quality standards. Good attendance is required and there is mandatory overtime. Depending on the department, most of the employees are off the majority of the weekends. Occasionally Saturdays are required. Department Managers are supportive for the most part. This is a Union atmosphere.
Pros
Steady work, good pay.
Cons
Lack of communication

I have nothing to say about Formica as an employer. It is a place to work if you need a job, just like any other place would be if you needed a job.....

Executive Assistant/Office Manager (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 24, 2017
There was no typical day at work. Very fast paced and exciting. Amazing work environment and great people. Favorite part was the photo shoots. Hardest part was the company relocating to Ohio.

life sucking unstable leech
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Evendale, OHMay 9, 2017
You will have Zero sick days and Zero retirement. Your 401k pathetic as it is will without your permission or input be transferred to the most disreputable and prosecuted company in the business. You may be forced to work 12 hours, 7days a week for months on end. you will be denied any further training or education. You will have your shifts changed at the companies convience. You will not be able to use the so called education benifits because your shift changes will make it impossible.If you should get injured on the job the first thing that will happen is you will loose 2 weeks of your vacation.
Pros
the paychecks clear
Cons
everything else

employees are thieves
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Evendale, OHDecember 16, 2016
Formica would be a good place to work if they did not hire lazy people who think it is ok to steal from coworkers. My husband has worked here 24 years and dropped his money clip from his pants pocket. Within 5 minutes, a coworker took over $200 from the clip and threw his money clip back on the ground, after looking at his drivers license and seeing exactly who it belonged to. I am disgusted by such lack of morals.

Good money, forced overtime, full benefits
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJune 16, 2016
The money is decent for the work. Union job, so fees are deducted out of every check once the probationary period is completed. Overtime is scheduled, and refusal to work overtime results in points. Eventually the points will lead to termination. Often scheduled to come into work for 4 hours on off days. Can schedule up to 12 hours. Full benefits. A lot of hours, but overall a decent place to work for the amount of money.
Pros
Unlimited overtime
Cons
Forced overtime

Great place for exercise
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) –  Mount Comfort, INDecember 2, 2015
has awesome people to work with on second shift. It does require a lot of heavy lifting and walking which makes it great for exercising so you don't have to shell out a lot money for gym membership. the hardest part of the job is constant over time which takes away from the daytime. it has great benefits when you get hired on.
