The employees are very friendly and have a team focused approach. There are a lot of changes going on and new equipment being brought into the plant but it's all positive. If you're willing to put in the time and energy, you'll find your experience very rewarding. There is a lot of opportunity for advancement.
Management is looking for individuals who want to learn, grow and be challenged.
Designated break times and lunch times, family atmosphere
Too many hours without notice so you can't make plans with family or friends

The problem with Kasson and Keller is that they push and push. They want to be perfect but it never works. They work long hour days so no one can make plans. The work place is dirty and unorganized. The management is terrible. They want to make Kasson and Keller better but they make it worse.
Long breaks, vacation weeks and paid holidays
poor working environment, long hours, summer time is hot

Fast paced environment, with ever-changing systems. Clock in, proceed to your department. Breaks are set daily, but clock out is not. Given the every changing employees, it can become very hectic, and for some even confusing.
residential dept. (Current Employee) – Fonda, NY – April 23, 2014
Everything was new to me, but I catch on very quickly and learned. I met my overall quota everyday, sometimes having to work through my lunch break. The men and women I worked with were very supportive and would always lend a hand as well as my manager. My manager always made the floor work fair and as easy as she possibly could. Although there were various parts off the job that were definately harder than others. I especially didn't care for the large machinery, it was the hardest because the machine I used would always malfunction and I would have to do its work by hand. Most days were enjoyable, easy going and my favorite was the people I worked with. They were always there for me to help and became good friends.
finishing the work early and getting out early
malfunctioning machines and having to work 65+ hours weekly
