Payroll Representative (Current Employee) –  Amherst, OHMarch 18, 2019
Depending on the department advancement is good or very poor, but most of the GBS positions are good except a few. Corp. HR management is not recommended at all employee is not trustworthy with confidential information.

Raises are better in some departments than other. Employees are great.

Great pay, but bad training & support
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Amherst, OHMarch 7, 2019
The training was ridiculous. It was rushed and unorganized. The supervisor was pulled in so many directions and unavailable most of the time. Most of the people that I ran into were very friendly. The pay per hour was great.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Bad training, manager pulled in too many directions for support

Stressful
Sales (Former Employee) –  Salem, NHFebruary 19, 2019
Intense process, more work than most people can do. Many put in well over 10 hours a day, and 3 to 4 hours a weekend, just to take care of what they were required to finish within a week. There was an unrealistic expectation. This is a sweatshop if there ever was one. Stay far away.
Pros
Casual Dress (Jeans)
Cons
Too much required, and too little time

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Austintown, OhioFebruary 11, 2019
A lot of jobs can seem very good BEFORE you work there. Once you find out the truth, you will be disappointed. Management is a bad joke. NO real training program. Plenty of problems at this place. BEWARE!!
Pros
They have a roof.
Cons
Too many to list here.

Engineer (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GADecember 16, 2018
Nordson is a very typical technical corporate environment. The work/life balance is very good and the people are mostly friendly. Also, the benefits are good but not great.

Mill Operator (Former Employee) –  Austintown, OHNovember 30, 2018
The company is world wide, and has done just fine. But the Ohio plant will be closing the doors on this place just like Virginia did. This facility has openly been in a deficit since announcing "the big move".

Member of Technical Staff, Mechanical (Former Employee) –  Carlsbad, CASeptember 12, 2018
Nice people, helpful management. Expected to wear many hats as an employee here, as it's a relatively small business unit, however it's owned by Nordson, which is a large global organization. Some career growth limitations within March.
Pros
Nice people, great for gaining experience
Cons
Advancement Oppportunities, lacks sufficient staffing to keep up with demands

Good place to work
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Austintown, OHSeptember 11, 2018
I worked at the Austintown plant as a machinist. I was treated very fairly by the management and my coworkers. Everyone wants to see you succeed at your job. Your success is the company's success. The benefits were middle of the road. There's room to grow with the company. I would have stayed but my future was not in Austintown,OH
Pros
Decent benefits, good people, room for growth, tuition reimbursement, 401k, 40+ hr paychecks.
Cons
No sitting, standing on concrete floors, management changes.

Continuous Improvement Internship (Former Employee) –  Duluth, GAJuly 30, 2018
I worked as an intern at Nordson Corporation and a typical day consisted of me working autonomously doing what I needed to do to accomplish different projects.

I learned a lot about the company in general and how they operate.

The management is great. They do not micromanage you. Once you are assigned a few projects you work at your own pace to accomplish them.

In the workplace its very quiet. Everyone is working and doing what they have to do.
