Senior sales management are ego's gone wild. Don't care about their staff very much and force peopel to switch to jobs they don't want
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  NortheastAugust 6, 2017
Upper management in sales are unappreciative of their sale staff and treat them poorly. This is pretty much everyone opinion not just mine. There is very little opportunity to advance.
Pros
Great products

Horrible senior sales management that are only interested in their own bonus checks.

Good place to work
Material Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 20, 2016
Kao was a good place to work, I will truly miss working there. Advice to anyone applying, do not listen to what your previous managers instructed you to do if they leave or you come under new management as that will most likely get you fired! There was a misunderstanding and no type of corrective action to ensure the problem would not happen again, just a termination of an employee that worked 12+ hours a day just to try and make everything run smooth. Overall it was a great place to work for the past 5 years and the people I worked with will honestly be missed.
Pros
Great pay under new manager, if you're not afraid of the hours.
Cons
HR did not give a chance for explanation. Pay sucked under my old manager.

Forklift Operator
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  fairfield ohioSeptember 29, 2015
A typical day would consist of being on a standing foklift and going an obtaining product then getting off and rapping the pallets. I learned how to use and standing and reaching forklift aw well as being certified. I got along well with my co-workers. There honestly wasn't any hard part of the job. The most enjoyable part of the day was usually learning how to use other machine and devices.
Pros
fast and upbeat work place
Cons

They don't hire temps to full time. The hours they had me work were from 6p to 2am and I did nothing all night. They offer no over time. The management is unorganized the hardest part was trying to figure out why I had that position
