Sewer (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – January 3, 2018
a typical day at National Office Furniture was one that you never knew which seat you would be sewing or for how long you would be sewing it. You could be moved several times throughout the day to different seats and co workers. You had to be flexible with your ability to sew many seats as well as work with different co workers. Overtime was as needed, there would be times you wouldn't find out overtime was required untill 1:00pm. National did cater in for alot of dinners when your department would set milestones and they gave really nice gifts at celebrations.
Assembly Worker (Current Employee) – Fordsville, KY – April 25, 2017
On a typical day I would read a blueprint of a desired part or unit and proceed to construct said unit. I learned skills with air tools, woodworking, and the acquired the ability to work from a blueprint. The management was very friendly and caring. This company puts a focus on safety that makes working there an overall joy,

Hand Sander (Former Employee) – Jasper, IN – March 18, 2016
A typical day at work would be doing stretches in the morning and after lunch, and hand sanding chairs and couches. Everyone that I worked with was very friendly as was the supervisor and team leader. The hardest part of my job was probably trying to get the chairs and couches hand sanded in a fast pace and having them look great.

former employee (Former Employee) – Danville, KY – April 2, 2013
Overall this is a good company to work for, but it is not a great company. The benefits are like everywhere else decent health care, dental and vision. The 401k is good, if you plan on staying for at least 4 years. The company matches at 3% but you have to be fully vested at 4 years to take it with you.
Management has a power struggle going on and relies heavily on favortism and intimidation. If there is a favorite that individual will advance no matter how adept they are at their position. Production scheduling has a very unorganized feeling to the production employees. Communication is minimal. Like everywhere the people on the floor as basically great. A few sour apples but that is normal. Management has a tendency to avoid the difficult personalities and discipline everyone around the difficult person. Management has a lot to learn about how to mange people in order to be successful. Like so many companies that have a lot of potential this one has a style that is stuck in the 1950's. They are not ready for constructive criticism.
The work is very labor intensive, very little automation, the production schedule is varied everyday. The workers have no idea if their day is 6 or 10 hours.
This individual learned that working a production line job in this part of the world is not desireable. No room for improvement or advancement unless you kiss up. This individual also learned that production furniture is hard on the body and the employees doing the work are not paid enough in comparison to what the company earns in revenue. The task may be simple but the wear and tear onmore... the body is extreme. The workers should be better compensated.
Overall not a bad place to work but not the kind of place you want to plan on retiring from. The hours allow a person to take classes in the evening and achieve something better.less
great safety program, half hour lunch break, early start time
