Morgan could be a great place to work it the treated employees a little better and didn't constantly make employees work saturdays
Welder (Current Employee) – Janesville, WI – August 28, 2018
Morgan is a fast paced assembly line. You just get your required number done and go home. It does not have great management with an either friendly or hostile atmosphere depending on the day. The hardest part of the job was trying to get trucks out quickly when something goes wrong then your life becomes a living nightmare.

constantly trying to make you go harder and faster with little consideration to employees
Production Associate (Former Employee) – Rydal, GA – July 31, 2018
I hat worked here for over a year, mess up one time and get a cut that needed stitches and was terminated the following day. It’s extremely stressful, and you can’t leave until your schedule for the night has been met no matter how many hours you work. The plant itself is hot as an oven. Very hard to move up, however, if you’re reading this and end up getting the job. Help in every area you can so you know more. That’s what will help you the most

Line Lead (Former Employee) – Morgantown, PA – July 23, 2018
Genuine attempts at proper training. The Line is a team and all are subject to congratulations as well as failures regardless of individual performance. Because of this you are more likely to obtain assistance and clarification when needed by your coworkers so the team doesn't suffer due to an individual.
Team atmosphere, coworker cooperation
mediocre compensation, individual performance lost above line management

welders need to get paid more, finishing welders need to be paid a lot more than 12-14 dollars an hour, welding is a skill not many people posses and also you are not just welding and fabricating. you also wire hydraulics, and electrical components. you also fabricate to put in walk ramps as well. And also 10 cents a year is top out cost of living raise.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Crystal River, FL – May 11, 2018
When I worked for Morgan Corporation, I worked through an employment agency, not directly for Morgan. Because of that fact, I received no benefits. I enjoyed the work and the people for/with whom I worked. I was able to bring my experience to the job as well as learning a great deal from the job. Because Morgan's headquarters are in South Carolina, I ended up doing a little bit of everything on the job in Florida - from updating the training matrix, time entry - overall administrative support to the Site Development Project Manager, Project Engineer, Quality Control Manager, Safety Manager, Superintendents and Foremen. I also functioned as the onsite HR representative and benefits coordinator.
Better salary than most employers in the area
Because it was a construction site, there was no running water, hence no bathrooms. We had porta potties. That was not fun!
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Corsicana, TX – February 11, 2018
10 minute breaks. Terrible management. 10-12 hours daily (no daily life). No career advancement. No pay raise. No bonus. No incentive. Dollar differential is taxed separately from pay,so your not really getting a dollar. Benefit plans are high and cover hardly anything at all. No on the job training. High turnover rate. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HARDWORKING EMPLOYEES!!! DO NOT WORK ON 2nd SHIFT...because 1st shift doesn’t do hardly anything at all and 2nd shift picks up all defects,rework,and their own schedule on top of all that.
10 minute breaks. Terrible management. No bonus. No incentive. Long hours. Terrible pay.
Do not work here unless you are over 40 and have no other options
Welder (Former Employee) – Corsicana, TX – December 7, 2018
Before I started I had 2 8hr paid days of safety training then it was on to work. They had me in an that required 1 welder not 2. They would call me to go over the the other side of the plant to go welder or grind down someone’s screw up. It wasn’t until about 5 weeks in the stationed me somewhere where a guy had just been fired. They had 3 different people training me over the course of a week which is not enough for someone to learn an area that requires a lot of detail. The management is just horrible, the supervisors don’t know wtf they are doing and cannot run what they are supposed to. They will try to throw in extra work orders because all they care about is quantity over quality.i was asked to come in one Saturday and when I got there they didn’t have anything for me to do so they had me pull work orders from the upcoming week. All I really gotta say is don’t work there if you are young and looking for a temporary job or unless you are older and not planning on going back to school. Starting out as a welder was $14hr.

The manufacturing environment is not an easy one yet leadership at Morgan has made great strides in taking care of employees to ensure better work-life balance and good benefits and fair pay.
There are a lot of opportunities to advance at across the company and everyone is very helpful and works together to be the best in the truck body business. The education assistance benefit is amazing and I hope that more employees take advantage of it to grow their skills.
I am really happy to work here and would recommend it.
Improving culture, great advancement opportunities, leadership in sync with needs of workers.
More appreciation from sr. management for production staff
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Janesville, WI – July 12, 2018
Liars. Morgan posts jobs on here, Craigslist and through multiple temp agencies. Applied for a job here, told through management/interview that the job I applied for was already filled from within... BUT, they could offer me another job welding, given my experience. SOOO... my foot is in the door. Nearly a month later, (along with poor excuses,) I finally get to learn some welding. Very short lived. No sooner I learn that job, and they have me training someone else to do it. In the meantime, the job I originally applied for is reposted again on here and multiple other sites. It's a pull the wool over your eyes shim sham scam just to get bodies through the door. Liars. They're all about learn this and that... the more you know, the more you make...etc... ship you around from station to station like a delirious nomad minion slave. And you must produce... be proficient in each area and make their numbers... SOOO... I did... I should be at a p2 or 3 by now. (There is 4 production levels, 4 being highest) Aaannnddd... my 90 day review comes around. NO RAISE. Have never missed a day or been late in 6 months. No points. NO RAISE. That's how Morgan treats it's employees. They don't care. They will just go to the jail or another temp agency for another monkey to drill holes all day and pop in rivets and screws. Jeez... how can they get away with this? Think about this: if they hire you in at 12 an hour, and a year later you finally get a raise, you will probably be at 12.50 an hour. Yay. Looking for other work here and I would advise you to do the same. The line leads and supervisorsmore... will pull you off from the job your doing and put you on another job unfinished, and tell you you're not doing your job... leaving everyone else standing around... Actually stopping production. No life married to the job supervisors and line leads that pride themselves in others failure. Horrible work culture and morale. Others make you feel like you have no right to work there. Maybe if I was hired for the job you posted and I applied for, I could be more useful for the company. Sorry. Jeepers.less
Good place to start but experienced welder steer clear
Welder (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 13, 2018
No real wage advancement or opportunity to grow in a career sense, but it is a good place to learn and get your foot in the door. If you have prior experience in the welding trade this job is a complete waste of time
Benefits and learning opportunity
No wage advancement or opportunity to grow and management doesn't care about employees
Technical Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) – Morgantown, PA – October 10, 2018
There was a lot to learn in a short period of time but my trainer was extremely helpful and patient with me. The fast paced work environment made the days fly by and every day brought something new and different which made the job enjoyable and challenging. Technical sales support requires time management, critical thinking and multi-tasking skills. All the people that I worked with were dedicated, hard working and quick to help out. Management was good and never interfered with my work. I was given all the support I needed to succeed in a very fast paced environment.
Welder (Former Employee) – Denver, PA – October 9, 2018
Overall working at Morgan was a mess, I have never seen anything like this. It's not a friendly environment, always changing your work schedule. You have no personal life especially 'mandatory' saturdays, everything is so unorganized, unprofessional, & dishonest (management). I've seen top notch knowledgeable good people on the shop floor get screwed over for something that is so dumb as an excuse. It's like being set up for failure... It's all about making numbers that cannot be touched & NO advancement. Kept moving me around in multiple areas, never learned one thing at a time. When it came to morning meetings did not have a clue to what they were talking about, kept saying the same things everyday. Constant state of missing parts & couldn't build what we needed (still blamed us regardless). Hired wack jobs who were too lazy to work possibly quit later & you had to full in for them, job training was awful. Tools always broke/missing. I was a good worker always on time showed respect to my workers, I have no sympathy for management. They didn't appreciate the value of good workers until they're gone. I worked there for about a year & a half. I've seen a lot of bad things happen! Take what you learned & NEVER go back. I highly recommend nobody to apply here if you're a welder.
Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Morgantown, PA – September 20, 2018
For me personally wish management wad better at being a manager. Pay rate was ok at first they kept telling me i was doing a very good job that i was the one who kept the numbers up but a pay rate to them is your doing a very good job.
