Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) – Lincolnshire, IL – November 28, 2018
Upper management does not show any interest in the employee working on the production lines. I hate to bash them with negativity but they pretend to be friendly and will act fake towards you, especially HR. Their policies are too strict when it comes to family emergencies.
Workers get along for the most part.
Pay is decent there but not given enough options for growth.
Make sure you have proof of any medical condition or it will count against you.
Monthly chances to win $20 gift cards. Free lucnhes once in a blue moon.
Short breaks, 30 minute lunch/ not enough microwaves for 20+ people at a time. Upper management is too strict.
Marketing Manager, Medical Equipment (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – October 25, 2018
MidMark is one of the few companies I have worked for that does its best to live what it stands for. They promote and provide the means to learn and grow. When I worked there their tagline was "Because we Care" and I truly felt they did.
I worked at Midmark Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)
Pros: I worked for this company for quite a few years. I left Midmark because of a career advancement within another company that Midmark did not have available. I still see my old co-workers that turned into family and hold Midmark near and dear to my heart.
Throughout the years, Midmark took me to a whole new level. I was giving the opportunity to learn a new trade within my department, was able to take classes while working throughout the years, went to conferences, had great managers and got to see some pretty exciting product launches take off.
The flexibility within my department was great. People understood that you have families to get to in the evening yet being a hard worker, you want more for yourself and the company. So, you work hard, after hours and even weekends sometimes. You do it because the company treats you right.
Events, fundraisers, community programs they put on are fantastic. They don't do anything 2nd best. And the philanthropy side of things is done top notch.
Cons: You work a lot. You sometimes become addicted to your work. Pro and Con. The ongoing changes within the company can make you feel uneasy at times. With even having the best interest of the company, I've also seen good hardworking people be moved to a department that wasn't a good fit. But all in all, they really do have the best interest of the company and employees at hand.
Advice to Management Keep the spark going! The energy you set off is a great way to show other employees that this company is bettermore... than any other around.less
The environment is one of growth and continually attempting improvements. They try to work with their employees when the unexpected arises and moving positions inside the company is fairly easy. They also encourage and offer at least partial compensation for continued training and education.

management is constantly making bad decisions can't seem to figure out which direction they want to go. worked for a company that was bought out by Midmark and all they ever did was lie and break promises
CASEWORK DESIGNER (Former Employee) – Glasgow, KY – July 25, 2017
Midmark does a great job acknowledging their employees and their achievements. Though it was not ideal for me to stay there with my career field I very much enjoyed my time there and felt that my skills we properly appreciated and compensated for.

Human Resources walk around trying to find something to get you in trouble for they don't have any kind of respect for the worker at all they just look out for each other in the office area is not a good place to work for sorry
Post Market Surveillance / CAPA Supervisor (Former Employee) – Versailles, OH – June 3, 2017
Everyday landed opportunity to interact with dozens of people that share a strong family/ workplace balance value. Most managers were able to end their days on time to attend family events in the evening.
Midmark is one of the best companies I've every work for. The company has a great culture of work/life balance and practices what they preach. They truly care about their teammates. All executives have an open door policy and treat everyone with respect no matter their position.
Welder (Current Employee) – Versailles, OH – April 17, 2017
It is a secure job with great benefits. They have some of the best pay and insurance in our area. However, it is extremely difficult to advance if you don't like the same sports team as your manager or if you are good at a job that no one else wants to do. Most of the employees on the shop floor have a very negative attitude about day to day operations. The negativity is contagious. The new CEO shows some promise. Things may turn around in the future.
Assembly Line Production Worker (Former Employee) – Versailles, OH – September 25, 2016
They pay very well but they are not about your health. If you become terminally ill they will terminate you. It is also a great place to work if you know people in upper management other wise the rules only apply to you.There is no confidentiality either your business is discussed over beer at that local bar by the supervisors to other associates.
You're either lucky or unlucky with the job they give you
Assembler (Former Employee) – Versailles, OH – July 15, 2016
When I worked at Midmark (a little over 4 months), I had a hard time keeping up with the work they gave me. Every day I wound up breaking a sweat within the first hour of work. I had some hope though, because I was told day in and day out that things would get easier. After about a month, all of the movements became second nature and I thought I was finally in the rhythm of things. Well my team leaders noticed and decided to add more work to my already challenging job.
I could have gritted my teeth and pushed through (and I did for a while), but here's the thing that angered me most: MY TEAM LEADERS DID NOTHING BUT TALK ALL DAY! They didn't even talk about work. Every time I walked by them, I could hear the things they were talking about. It was ALWAYS about their weekend, things they've done in the past, and other nonsense that happened outside of work. These guys are getting paid over $20 an hour to talk. They refuse to work unless there is a problem on the line. Then after that it's right back to talking.
My team leaders weren't the only ones who did this either. On multiple occasions throughout the day, my line would get visitors from the other lines and the forklift drivers. They had enough time in their schedule to actually come over and talk. They'd lean on the counters, laugh, and have a grand old time. Meanwhile the three guys I work with along with myself are sweating and moving as fast as we can just to keep up with production.
In my opinion calling these guys team "leaders" is wrong. They DO NOT lead, and don't deserve that title.
Also onmore... the multiple occasions our line would go down for the night, my team and I would go over to another plant where they needed "help." We would do the jobs that were short handed for the night. These were the easiest jobs I've ever done. The one I usually got assigned to was nothing more than waiting on a machine to fold metal into specific shapes and then stacking that metal into a cart. I would literally stand there and wait on the machine for over a minute and then put the part into a cart. Once the cart was full I'd take it to a specific spot and get another one.
I soon found out that most jobs in Plant C are like this. I worked in Plant A and it was a nightmare for me.
Midmark needs to seriously reevaluate what each person is doing for their job. Some people are severely overworked, while others literally talk all night.less
Good pay, Good benefits
Unfair workload distribution, Team Leaders who don't work
Floater (Current Employee) – Versailles, OH – January 25, 2016
I am really busy for the most part of my day. Learned the many different types of people their are in this world. Hardest part of job is being told to do a job that you and they know is really difficult for me to do instead of allowing you to switch to something else you can do better. Hours are good.
get treated different if not friends with certain people or realted to.
Design Engineer/Manager (Current Employee) – Glasgow, KY – November 16, 2015
Midmark is a great place to work in that it allows for a good work/life balance most of the time. The subsidiary that I work at is smaller which allows for everyone to be tight-knit, but does not allow for too much advancement at that specific location.
