Not a good place to work
Current employee (Current Employee) –  Decatur, ILApril 15, 2018
I have learned a lot at Mueller, but in the last few years the majority of the upper management has changed. Most of the changes were not good. The management does not trust most of their shift supervisors, and none of the union employees. Management berates the supervisors on an almost daily basis, and does not stand behind them. Management is constantly looking for any reason to discipline the shop floor union employees. Training for new employees is without structure, and if they don't learn quick enough they are fired. This management team does not have any compassion for anyone but themselves.
Management has created a hostile working environment for both the lowly shift supervisors and shop floor union employees as well.

Shipping and Receiving Clerk (Current Employee) –  Decatur, ILApril 15, 2018
I enjoy my job at Mueller Co. As in any workplace things could be better. But the management is “all in” on improving & making Mueller Co the best it can possibly be.

The union is sorry and the people in it take it to the extreme. Management is pitiful, but decent pay and all the weekend work you can stand. Double time for Sundays.

Process Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Albertville, ALDecember 5, 2017
Overall a good place to work, but performance has no bearing on raises or advancement. Compensation and benefits are very good. Management tries to implement too many changes at a time resulting in poor execution and unattainable goals.
Pros
Benefits, pay.
Cons
Poor strategy
