Engineering Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bettendorf, IA – November 5, 2018
It's a good company to work for if you like to stay stuck in your career. Poor advancement opportunities, awful yearly raises and bonus. Lots of favoritism, especially in operations. But it's a good experience and some of the management is good.
Depending on your department, schedules are flexible, lots of opportunities to participate in fundraisers and volunteer work, employee recognition programs, friendly people
Work expected versus pay, annual raises are minimal, bonuses are very little unless you're in sales, upper management are all sales guys so they don't understand operations
Production Worker (Current Employee) – Gary, IN – January 9, 2019
There is very obvious favoritism between shifts. Maintenance is a joke, poor pay, subpar benefits, and a lot of promises from management that are never kept. You can learn multiple new position from where you start out and not receive a single penny of extra pay. There is also little to no communication between the different departments so everyone is scrambling trying to figure out what is going on.
Material Handler (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – December 20, 2018
I liked the people I worked with bit the job was hard. I had to wear long pants and long sleeve shirts. I also had to wear metal braces on my arms and legs. The boots were a special steel toe. The platform I stood on was even and when I first started I hurt my ankle really bad. The torch I had to use to cut scraps also worsened my eye sight .
Nice people good benefits
Stressful work. No tolerance for beimg umder production quotas even though the computer went down
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Bettendorf, IA – September 11, 2018
Training on was not good. When I was working split shift wrong part loaded on truck and they blamed me since I had initialed paperwork. But many truckers had loaded parts on that truck. I was let go for this.
No job security!
Also multiple mistakes were made on my pay checks. Taking out 401k and overcharging for health care.
Auditor (Former Employee) – Bedford Heights, OH – August 15, 2018
I spent a long time there and I did mostly lateral moves. Manufacturing is a difficult environment and does not provide the flexibility that more progressive companies provide. There is no work from home, men must wear ties, and maximum vacation is 3 weeks.
General Laborer (Former Employee) – Mount Sterling, KY – January 15, 2018
Second shift has a clique of young men in their 20's that stick together against others. They are allowed by management to harass, intimidate other employees. They drink on-site during work hours, skateboard in parking lot, throw metal at each other and horseplay all night. Not to mention the vulgar language other employees are made to here.
