Automatic Press Operator (Current Employee) – Byron Center, MI – August 21, 2018
This company really doesn't care about it's employees it cares about profit. It's a dirty place I mean oil and grease everywhere. The insurance is outrageous and the turn over rate for new employees is so high they have a group of new hires every morning.at one point they cancelled second shift the one I was working and forced me on to third shift with a week notice that was not ok.
Horrible place to work. Worst i have seen or been at.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Vanderbilt, MI – October 13, 2018
This place is like a third world country. It is ran by ignorant tyrants who expect perfection when they themselves dont even bother to show up half of the time. Unsafe equipment and facilities coupled with drunks,druggies,thiefs and a high turnover rate make it a hostile work enviroment. Management and hr do little if anything for employees and the wages are the lowest in the area.little to no advancement is possible and dont expect to be paid for more responsibility.it is the worst employer i have ever worked for and i have worked in some pretty rough enviroments. I would not wish this place on my worst enemy.no sick leave and they also tell you 4-10s work week but dont count on it plan on being treated poorly,grossly underpaid and work 50 to 60 hours a week mon.-sat. I and my fellow coworkers with half a brain are fed up and seeking more gainful and respectful employment.
it is not that bad of a place to work they need to pay more
Shipping and Receiving Coordinator (Current Employee) – Neillsville, WI – July 20, 2018
start out by straightening out my area then receiving in and putting everything away that came in after I was gone. I learned how to make the most out of the area that I have to put products away. The hardest part of the job is to juggle all the stuff that i am responsible to do and get it done in a timely manner. The most enjoyable thing is the people that I work with and the challenge of the job.
HR (Current Employee) – Mayville, WI – July 19, 2018
I've worked with people in many departments, and they have all been very nice and helpful. MEC has great benefits, including vacation when you start. It's employee owned which means you get a percentage of profits as stock each year that is saved for your retirement. My boss is always open to new ideas.
Paint line support (Former Employee) – Beaver Dam, WI – April 16, 2018
terrible management, always lying to your face as if they truly believe you’re foolish enough to believe it, often used write ups and scare tactics as a way to motivate employees rather than positive reinforcement. Otherwise pay was alright and job security was good. Overtime was crazy at times, 60 hour weeks for months at a time.
Pay alright, lots of overtime, good job security.
Very laborious work, poor management, long hours at times.
Robot Welder (Former Employee) – Neillsville, WI – March 25, 2018
Mayville engineering isn't a bad place to work if you don't have kids or have a life. There isn't any room for advancement unless your a favorite around there. The upper management is very poor and you have to work there for many years to make a decent wage.
A mess of a company with poor pay and poorer management
Welder and Fabricator (Former Employee) – Mayville, WI – February 18, 2018
Bad management, no bonuses, poor training, no incentives and no raises I didn't get my yearly raise until a year and a few months because they just didn't get to it. And they promise a 90 day review but that never happened Basically had to befriend co workers in order to get trained. Co workers will literally steal from you and the company and never get in trouble. Management never is held accountable for its mistakes. I could go on and on
Assembler, Welder, Paint, Shipping. (Former Employee) – Beaver Dam, WI – January 21, 2018
This company with promise you 40 hour work weeks/4 10 hour days. After your first week you'll be putting in 5 10 or 5 12 hour days, and even 4 to 8 hours on a Saturday. They are not family friendly, work life balance is none. By the time you get home, eat and shower, you can't hardly stay awake so you go to bed. Most workers are drug addicts, and most department managers are x cons. There's a few decent normal people to get along with which helps you get through the day. Management just pages workers all day and never go out on the floor. If there's a personal issue, production issue, or safety issue. They don't care. Getting the product out the door is #1. If you're a good worker and have standards, you will get decent pay, and get moved up. You're reward will be more hours. You will also start getting bumped to different departments. Management doesn't care if someone quits, on a weekly basis 5 people would walk out due to poor conditions, or the long hours. You'll get replaced, then that person will. The factory is always busy, and never slowed down like some. You get stock in the company so if you can work there until retirement you will get a big pay out, but average most people stay there 2 to 5 years. You won't get production bonuses, or raises, maybe a coffee mug for Christmas. If by some chance you get a raise, you wont see it until 3 months later or until you talk to h.r If you need a job badly to make ends meet, or have no social life work here.
Paint Line (Former Employee) – Mayville, WI – January 20, 2018
I worked here for a short period of time and would not recommend this place to anyone. Horrible supervisors and leads throughout the company, no room for advancement unless you kiss butt 24/7 or sleep with your boss, coworkers are always too focused on their personal drama to get their job done. They'd much rather gossip about who's sleeping with who than actually work. Job ethic was just poor overall with this company and nobody seemed to care. I was working 12 hour shifts 5 days a week and was never trained hands-on, just spoken to. Ridiculous company to work for. McDonald's is a better place to work.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Neillsville, WI – January 17, 2018
Days are long and stressful. Run down machines that don't get fixed. Poor management. Working 12 hour days is a norm. No planning-just throw jobs out on the floor whenever which leads to a lot of overtime. No work/life balance.
Poor management, 12 hour days, broke down machines
BRAKE PRESS OPERATOR (Current Employee) – Mayville, WI – November 29, 2017
I would not recommend this company to someone as it is currently managed. Not a family or work'/life balance friendly environment. Common Mandatory 50, or more, hours per week. Hours change all the time. Hard to plan or establish an outside work life.
Weld Technician (Current Employee) – Mayville, WI – September 14, 2017
very stressful, poor management, had more supervisors than the number of years I have worked here. Managers think they can run things from their office, their if very little interaction with employees.
Product Design Engineer/Project Manager (Current Employee) – Byron Center, MI – September 6, 2017
Overall my experience has been positive. In some plants, good management exists, in other plants it's depressing and down right sickening the way people get treated by management. Terrible in some locations, excellent in others.
Some plants would benefit with new management and about a years worth of outside consulting on procedures, documentation and data management.
