Production Team Member in Rexburg, ID
This company has poor management, really bad leaders and really bad communication. They require a lot of overtime hours out of you and it is a dead end job. They don't care about you as a person and don't even respect your opinions. Honestly a lot of them don't really have an investment in their job and the leaders just want the job done, so they can go home. They make you feel like you don’t matter as a person and don’t recognize hard work. When working in the warehouse you will have a monotonous job with little to no flexibility.
Some things to think about before applying for this company are:
-Poor cultural norms. Not feeling part of a team.
-Some team members are favorited because they suck up.
-No respect for experience or seniority.
-Favored because of machine you operate and not overall experience you have.
-No job rotation schedule. Unorganized.
-Poor hygiene in the warehouse and bathrooms.
-Labor intensive and skill intensive with low pay incentives.
-Ignored when asked for a raise.
-No comprehensive training program. Just thrown into a position.
-Identified by position and not by a team.
-No investment in you as an employee and no regoncition for specific skills.
-Management focuses on the negative and little to no positive feedback.
-Lots of down time and lack of efficiency mixed with long hours.
-Not flexible with schedule unless your favored.
-I did not get fired. I quit after I gave them chance after chance to fix the things mentioned above.
-Remember that this is just my personal experience with this company in the warehouse. But I do know this that 80% of the warehouse feels the same about this as I do. Most of them are just too scared to say anything because they might lose their job. But most end up quitting anyway so that also contributes to the lack of culture and structure. Even some of the second level management feel the same way I do and that’s probably why a few of them are quitting too.
-Upper Management does not involve you in major decisions that affects your job personally. Don’t value input from those who are working hands on with the operations.
-Weekly team meetings have been reduced to monthly team meetings and most of the meeting is just looking at stats then eating and leaving, while before there used to be genuine discussions on where we could improve as a team.
-This company may be scaling but their company morals and values are plummeting fast.
-Because I’ve been working with this company for over a year I decided to give the office positions a try. I applied for a position in the offices that had no previous experience required to give them another chance with my time and the offices only response was they were looking for someone “who pays more attention to detail.” I guess that producing/quality checking each and every part for them wasn’t enough to be considered “detail oriented”.
-Managers treat you like boys not men even if your married or have been working with the company a long time.
-Work Gossip can and will get you fired because the managers are not willing to understand your side of the story and frankly seem to only care about their favorites. Even when their favorites are doing and saying the exact same things you are.

Shipping and Receiving in Rexburg, ID
I loved working here. The pay wasn’t quite where you would have expected it to be. One of the owners is very very overbearing. Management is fairly new and still learning.
LEAD GRAPHIC DESIGNER / ART DIRECTOR in Rexburg, ID
Monkey Bars was my first job out of college, and it was a wonderful place to cut my teeth and gain valuable experience in Graphic Design. I was able to work a wide variety of projects while collaborating with everyone from support staff to upper management.

By far the most nervous I've been in a work place in my life. No one was required to wear safety equipment and mocked when they did. No one was Forklift certified and anyone who did drive it drove it like it was their personal 4-wheeler. Management needs to figure out what they want from their production team too, was given almost 0 direction as to what they wanted done and when. It wasn't all bad though, they allowed you to be flexible with your hours as long as you got your work done.
