tech (Former Employee) –  Evansville, INFebruary 14, 2019
They offer you a job and force you into a very different position. They promise training for the new role, yet they provide ZERO TRAINING. Since you are unfamiliar with the new job, you are criticized and threatened because you don't know how to perform the job.

They force some people to work in high voltage electrical panels with absolutely no electrical training.

They force some people to work with deadly chemicals and acids with absolutely no safety training. They tell you not to do the work if you aren't comfortable; then they threaten to fire you for not doing the work.

They used to provide safety training for the hazardous and deadly chemicals and acids but they threw all of that out the window. They now say that your safety is your own responsibility. However, they provide training for production workers, just none for maintenance or technical positions.
Pros
lots of overtime
Cons
no training; unsafe work; lots of serious accidents

A good place to get experience
Prefer not to say (Current Employee) –  De Witt, IAMay 7, 2019
A great place to build experience. The company culture is MBM, and while it is not perfect there is a real drive to advance the culture. Some problems with work life balance.
Pros
Opportunities for growth. Good culture. Great experience.
Cons
Work life balance. Lower pay than comparable jobs.

Production Worker (Current Employee) –  DeWitt, IAApril 29, 2019
Would be a job you could retire at if the owners (the koch brothers) weren’t so greedy. You work harder and way more overtime while being paid way less compared to other local manufacturers. You don’t have mauve home life working here. Up the pay and cut some overtime and it’ll be a great place to work.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
Underpaid especially compared to other local manufacturers
