Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) – Howe, IN – December 11, 2018
Lippert components is a great place, but the hours we would work was unbelievable. I just felt I was never around and it was really affecting my home life. People are great and the money was even better.
Forklift Operator and Material Handler (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – December 8, 2018
They run that place like it high school if your in with the cool kids your fine but if you are a loner or dont rub elbows well with the bosses your gonna get fired or "laid off" as they called it dont dare mention anything about a raise after 6 Years you would figure that theyd want to take care of long term employees oh no not the case if your a hard worker dont apply theyll wear you down and out and throw you away for something "better"and "newer" all in all terrible bosses pay was decent but as far as "the job" garbage
Bosses are terrible and your treated like trash the longer your there
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – November 19, 2018
Lippert plant 45. They are a good company just have poor management. They lie to you before you even start your first day. They claim to care about their employees but honestly don't. They tell you you'll get a raise after thirty days and you can have ninety days in and never see one dime. Great starting pay for welders though.
Saw Operator (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – October 13, 2018
I worked hard and learned multiple positions which include mutiple cnc machines, running more than one at a time, saw, crane, and break press. Was never listened to when i asked for a performance review and was never given a raise in two years, besides my initial raise after 90 days.
Payroll Specialist (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – May 18, 2018
CoWorkers were so rude and disrespectful. The way I was trained was so poor it was like I was being set up to fail or look bad. I have over 15 yrs experience in my field and my 2 coworkers were threatened by it because I was always told But you don't have 15 yrs exp here. Ive never worked with such rude and immature people like that. I got hurt while at work..it wasnt work related and totally my fault and I even made that known to HR but within 2 weeks of getting hurt I was let go for no reason at all. I had only been there 2.5 months and everything was fine until I got hurt and within 2 weeks I was let go with no real explanation. Their company motto is Everyone Matters which is clearly just a front and to give the community the impression they are a great company who cares about their employees.
A-frame production (Current Employee) – Elkhart, IN – July 9, 2018
You will usually work five days a week and each day the group lead will tell your department what that number is. Usually it's a pretty okay thing but sometimes they set that number WAY too high, especially if your short in your department or if mac ines are broken or etc. Then they will have you go help another line. This repeats. Until they let you go home.
Should be better supervisors with better experience and have everyone doing their job not being with their friend and taking their time away by taljin
Sorter and Packer (Current Employee) – Goshen, IN – June 27, 2018
It’s a good place to work good benefits it’s chill just the type of supervisor should be addressed new rules should be made and followed they need to take things more seriously and not me messing around
Call Center Agent (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – April 19, 2018
The call center has a long way to come before they are considered to be great. I worked there 2 years without a review or raise and asked several times and wasn't given one so I left. I think the CEO wants the company to be great, however growing too fast to know what's really going on with the plants.
Discount on parts
No reviews/raises, mandatory meetings that could have been an email
Upholstery (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – March 22, 2018
Work used to be great, but has become soul crushing. Management has put profits over employee health and happiness. Drama between coworkers and management are now a daily routine. Management continues to spout how much they care, but refuse to help resolve production issues that cause stress. Quality work is not respected or cared for. Little to no training or attempts to retain workers. Management activity try to sabotage employees to see what it takes to make a person quit.
Work hours, demanding, poor management, lack of caring.
Warehouse Associate/Data Entry Associate (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – March 28, 2018
Worked in hot conditions in a fast paced environment. There was opportunities for advancement but for only a select few individuals who had personal ties or good relations with management. Overall this job basically provided a okay compensation and job stability but not much more than that.
Fabrication Manager (Former Employee) – Goshen, IN – August 17, 2018
I was at Lippert for 5 years and 1 month. Started on the line and was fortunate enough to move to management. Once there it was obvious if you where not a leader in training there was no training or guidance coming your way. You are simply expected to be a mind reader. Human resources on the 19 complex is simply there to cover its own and the message from corporate compared seems to differ drastically. Directors of departments such as maintenance have a habit of micromanaging. Chore values look nice on t shirts and are great to see on signs but they are simply not lived up to by the people that make decisions.
Manufacturing Manager (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – March 20, 2018
This company has serious potential to grow. Things are headed in the right direction and have been for some time. Managers-In-Training will gain a significant amount of knowledge across many departments. Top caliber upper management, very smart individuals.
I have been working over 5 years at this plant. Production is very fast paced and the employees are very hard workers. I do believe the management team needs to focus on how to talk to employees with the same respect they expect they would like us to give them back.
Upholstery Cutter/Trainer (Former Employee) – Nampa, ID – October 13, 2018
The management is not good. They don't know how to do the jobs that the worker do in this company. They act like they care but they don't. If they did they would walk through the company and ask the workers if there is anything that can be improved. And actually improve the things that need to be improved. The management puts to much pressure on the hard worker that are there every day and actually know how to do the job inside and out. And the ones that don't know or that are lazy they don't show them or have them work.
free popcorn, some people that work there were or are good people to work with.
Chasis fabrication (Former Employee) – Middlebury, IN – October 31, 2018
