A culture based upon collaboration and cooperation
Industrial Cleaning Technician (Former Employee) – Guntown, MS – May 23, 2018
All-in-all, this isn't that bad of a place to work; but weekends are mandatory, and the work environment is very load and very hot. You will be exposed to some very astringent chemicals-properly wearing your PPE won't matter-it easily seeps through the chemicals suits provided.
Assistant Contract Manager (Former Employee) – Nashville, IL – January 11, 2018
Good place to advance a career in certain fields whether it be management or project leadership. A diverse environment in tasks and analytical data, deadlines ,and a very demanding relationship with manufacturing customer bases.
Fast paced, but very comfortable office environment, great management
Administrative Assistant/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Princeton, IN – December 23, 2017
Fast paced, but everyone worked as a team to get tasks completed. Management was great and very supportive. Hardest part of the job was sometimes deadlines were very short. But everyone worked to get it done.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Anoka, MN – December 13, 2017
Days were stressful, Pentair workers would make our Janitorial job harder, leaving messes for us to clean, had more tasks added than we could handle could handle with a limited staff. High turnover of staff was of no help, allowing for little in the way of getting experienced staff.
Change in management several month's prior to my leaving was disagreeable and unwilling to let those working the floor handle things and was unwilling to work with the staff when they decided to change our way of doing things without going over it with us.
If we found tasks that needed doing, we were to find ways to do it safely, efficiently and always look for improvements in howto complete our tasks.
Hardest part of the job was handling the work load when someone was late or called off.
Best part of the job was getting along with the Pentair staff.
The Management on site and throughout company especially in Corporate Positions very positive, knowledgeable, and helpful.
Group Lead (Current Employee) – Vance, AL – August 23, 2017
Loved the learning I was able to do in a manufacturing environment and the training I received on 5S, Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing. Taking the knowledge I received and passing it sown the line to Team Leads and then getting the Team Members to buy in was the difficult task.
Took care of their employees.
Long Saturday hours or worse Sunday hours. Had to get the cleaning done, which meant working around Mercedes Production and Maintenance schedules.
Group Leader (Current Employee) – Georgetown, KY – June 29, 2017
We start out with a very thought out plan. Toyota will come up and want us to do emergency projects at once. I will have to make judgment calls on who to send and which job needs done first. This job is very involved with the customer at all time.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – Smyrna, TN – February 7, 2017
As this is sometimes a high paced stressful environment it is all worth it at the end of the day. I love that the management is very hands on and family oriented. We worked hard as a group and played hard as a group.
Group Leader (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 30, 2017
Ninety percent of the work is done when the plant is not producing which is weekends and holidays. Must work every weekend and shut downs are a mandatory full week of working 12 plus hours a day. Salary was low for the amount of hours I worked. Seemed like a big disconnect between the corporate office and site locations. Contract was underbid which fell on site management. All they care about is the bottom line and corporate will set you up for failure in doing so. Site was understaffed, I was only GL on day shift most the time I was there. Director of operations will MapQuest your mileage log. Customer was difficult to work for at times. Did learn a little about lean manufacturing through Toyota. Was able to work on people managing skills, although I did feel like a baby sitter at times. Co-workers were fun. Benefits were really good when I worked there.
