Productive place to work and learn
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VASeptember 21, 2018
I worked through a temp agency while I was at kdc, it’s quick paced but the people and management at kdc were phenomenal while I was there. I left because being a temp working at kdc my hours were getting cut short and had to find something different
Pros
Learned a lot about operating certain machines
Cons
Eventually was losing hours by being sent home because the didn’t as many workers

Not a good place. They will tow your car while you are working.
Production (Current Employee) –  Lynchburg VASeptember 9, 2018
How would you like to go to work and have the company tow your car while on the job site? Exactly no one does that, oh wait KDC Lynchburg does.There is not sufficient parking for anyone other than office personel.Management does not have a clue. They don't understand why they cant get people to work there.Number one it is located in the worst part of town. There is not any communication.And now they have started towing cars, at $200 a pop.If you forget to hang your parking permit on your rearview mirror,they will tow your car. Also the new security they hired,treat everone as a prisoner, not an employee. I think their main priority is to have cars towed .Not to protect us. They expect you to work overtime at a moments notice. Also they expect you to work Every weekend. But the people who decide that you have to work are at home enjoying their life. I would recommend anyone to STAY AWAY!!!
Pros
If you need a job they will hire you. They will hire anyone.
Cons
They will hire anyone. Towing your car, never having time off

it wasnt bad...at first
hpo-material handler (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VAMarch 29, 2018
when I started there in 2015 I was excited to get up every day and go to work the people were awesome and mostly stayed to themselves but after the first year and getting hired on full time I noticed that company cared more about numbers then they did their employees and the quality of the product the supervisors talk to people like they're not people and within the last six months of me being the turn around rate tripled due to the supervisors lack professionalism and human resources did nothing about it and they always seemed to have problems with peoples paid time off and unpaid time off and payroll unless you're desperate for money I wouldn't refer anybody to work here
Pros
steady work as full time
Cons
no room for advancement, if you are good at the job you do they won't let you advance, supervisors are rude and unprofessional, and no raises for any reason

Not a good place to work
Quality (Current Employee) –  Lynchburg, VADecember 6, 2017
The work environment is not very good- employees that constantly make mistakes are kept while good employees are forced to leave.
Overtime is required and you are told to work over with little to no warning.
Pros
Not many
Cons
Expensive health insurance, poor leadership, high turnover rate

Overall stressful environment, completely understaffed
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VADecember 6, 2017
A good place to go if you're in need of an immediate job in production or manufacturing. There is some opportunity to change roles and diversify job experience in QA/QC. Plenty of concepts to learn, especially in the labs because there's alot of work to be done. The busy season is centered around the holidays and there is mandatory overtime.
Almost every department is understaffed and employees are expected to perform the jobs of those that leave or get fired, which can be overwhelming. This is an ok place to start a career right out of college but after a couple of years there is no advancement structure, no pay raises, or bonuses. PTO accrual for employees who have worked there for less than 5 years is a joke. Senior leadership does not have a healthy understanding of the daily operations in the facility which leads to constant miscommunication and disgruntled, overworked, unhealthy employees.
Pros
Pto, Medical benefits, overtime pay, 401k, some room for career growth
Cons
Long work days, no work/life balance, working on company holidays, no bonus structure, no upward mobility, understaffed, stressed out employees in a toxic work environment most of the time, upper management has unrealistic expectations with what tools are available to employees

This place is so disorganized
Production Worker (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VANovember 8, 2017
So disorganized and the supervisor stay in the office all day only come out when the head people are coming in. If the line down we gotta clean and can't use the bathroom at anytime because the line leader won't let you. The pay sucks we should be getting paid more than $9 for temps and $9.50 for full timers.
Cons
Short breaks and no benefits

No job security whatsoever.
General Laborer (Former Employee) –  Lynchburg, VAOctober 22, 2017
As a temporary employee, you can wind up out of a job if a manager is having a bad day. Mismanaged chaotic company with a lack of consistent work. Don't rely on this company as your sole source of income, unless you don't have bills to pay.
Pros
Not Rocket Science
Cons
Hostile work environment, no job security
