IT Analyst (Former Employee) – Schofield, WI – September 16, 2018
Management at this company is cutthroat and dishonest. Don't work here if you don't have to. Company used to be family owned but once the family backed out the culture and management went downhill fast. If you aren't in someone's clique at this place, you will not only go nowhere, you won't last very long. Being in a clique here requires you to consistently cover for management lies and deception. If you notice a way to improve a process or fix something, don't mention it to your manager because they will consider it a reflection on themselves (rather than just wanting to improve something) and they will be sure you are ignored and then find ways to get rid of you. Thankfully I was able to get out on my own terms.
Manufacturing Engineer Internship (Former Employee) – Schofield, WI – September 10, 2018
This is my second time back with Greenheck and I've grown to love the company even more! Greenheck is a great place to work with equally great people working there. They also do a lot of positive philanthropic work for their community which says a lot about the companies strong set of morals.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – 3rd Shift Production – September 7, 2018
Great place to work as long as you are in the union. Managers are not union protected and are expendable. I was employed in the union for 18 years. Near perfect attendance, solely focused on the company's best interest. Two years out of the union and was let go in less than 2 minutes. Not needed anymore.
Fun and safe environment. Always learning on the job and extending your knowledge
IT Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Schofield, WI – May 29, 2018
Typical day at work included checking and answering emails from the previous night that came in after hours. After answering emails we begin building, imaging and troubleshooting hardware, software and phone issues that came through emails from end users. Receiving work requests from end users and fixing in a timely matter. Inventory in checked weekly and ordered accordingly. Keeping track of hardware that is configured for the end users and charging the hardware to the correct department. About one hour a day my group would meet together to discuss occuring issues and discuss the most proficient cost effective way to troubleshoot and fix to avoid future issues. Other discussions included researching new equipment that would help replace older equipment.
I came into the job with basic knowledge of the IT field. Mainly hardware and software. While on the job it was like school. Everyday there was something to learn. We were able to test new equipment and software as needed to get the experience needed. Also customer support was a main goal for me. Before going to college i worked in customer service for a total of 4 to 5 years and took pride in relating to the customer and emphasizing with them as well.
Management at Greenheck is top notch. They are always asking what they can do to make our job easier. Another great aspect- management would set up one on ones to ask if we had any ideas ourselves that could help make the work process better and more efficient. This I respected. It showed that management cared about our thoughts and ideas. Also, during the one on onesmore... management would ask how our life is outside of work, this showed me that they were really sincere about our personal life along with our life at work.Management would also take us out to lunch about once a month for jobs well done and to just conversate like we were all friends.
Our workplace always had games and friendly challenges where anyone interested could sign up going on. This made the workplace culture fun and always challenging in the best way. Some include cribbage challenges which anyone could sign up for with rewards at the end for the top 3 winners, sand bag tosses, fitbit health challenges, potlucks and many other events. Greenheck is very health oriented, once a year we held a health fair which you could bring family members to see all the different stands e.g. dentists, bicycles, Medical, Life Insurance, Retirement Plans. Most stands also had games you could play to win different prizes and almost all stand had free samples, shirts and more you could get.
The toughest part of this job was during school breaks when interns would start coming back or first starting. This being the hardest because they would be hired in very large groups. We would be told ahead of time and receive the equipment lists of what would be needed for each individual in their department. Once we received PC build and software information needed we would begin the builds. Sometimes 70 to 100 at a time. It wasn't the actual builds, it was the volume of the builds. Because we needed this done fast, other builds for end users would take longer than they normally would. It would be stressful at times but the team I worked with we made it fun to reduce the stress which help every move fast and smooth.
Most enjoyable part of this job was the people. We all worked well together and made the job fun and enjoyable. We shared the workload as much as we couldless
Free lunches with management. Fun and friendly contests to make to workloads fun and fast
Short staffed at times which made charing workloads more difficult
Newex Fan Assembler (Former Employee) – Weston, WI – March 6, 2018
I came to work on time every day. Performed my duties and went home. I enjoyed the job security and the knowledge I gained.I learned many thing in the 18 years I was employed there. I miss the job but life has chosen a different direction for me.
Excellent place to work. Privately held company that cares about their employees and the community.
Maintenance Team Leader (Former Employee) – Rocklin, CA – February 21, 2018
A world class manufacturer that overtakes the competition by working smarter not harder. They are serious about keeping their employees and vendors safe and happy. I learned 2 skilled trades first as a Tool and Die Maker also a Maintenance Mechanic. They trained me in leadership and personal communication. I loved the creativity and working with teams to improve the processes. I thought the hard part was going to work at the same location every day for so many years. Now that I have been driving all over town fighting traffic I really miss it. Greenheck is like a very large family. They treat their employees like owners.
Small company struggling with a overly aggressive growth goals.
Various engineering and sales roles (Current Employee) – Schofield, WI – November 30, 2017
Zero professional development, advancement opportunities are few and far between outside the hidden fraternal order, absolutely no tangible employee appreciation or investment despite the overinflated self-promotions published in their periodic employee information bulletins, developing a culture of over-leveraging and micromanaging employees. Had historically been an excellent employer but current senior management will assuredly see to total elimination of that in quick order. If you’re seeking a professional position with opportunity for growth and development this organization is likely not a satisfactory option.
General stability in an aggressively growing company.
Management is generally a mess that ranges anywere between absent to oppressive micromanagement.
The pay was great. and the people you worked with were great. But management was clueless.They would make out that they knew everything. But couldn't fix simple problems going on the floor. They had there favorites. Everyone else well good luck. Didn't take employees feedback about the job into consideration,because there always right. And then do nothing to fix the problem. unless it was to there favorite, then fixed that day.Also they treated first shift different from the other shifts. Oh you did something wrong wright-up, 2nd or 3rd oh we will over look this over and over. If you need to have a job just for money and do not care then this place is good. If you want a career in something this is not for you!
Poor management, little support to uphold the standards that are expected.
First Shift Team Lead (Former Employee) – Frankfort, KY – November 18, 2017
Management does not support the standards they promote. Very lax in holding anyone accountable for their performance. These issues along with others created a very stressful work environment and have caused many to lose respect for management and a drop in performance and efficiency.
