Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Oakland, IA – December 15, 2018
Great job for an entry level mechanic. I dont feel experience is really compensated for. The pay is slightly less than average and if they can get away with paying an experienced mechanic an entry level pay, they will.
Vacation time as soon as hire, good health benefits, flexible with allowing time off for family events.
Horrible place to work but if you possess the (must) you will make it
Human Resources (Former Employee) – Chicago-Ashland location – December 6, 2018
It was the most horrible experience in my career, new plant manager has no integrity along with operations/ leadership team. If an employee speaks up they retaliate against every employee including their HR manager who quit in just 5months. Retaliation is their expertise. They have so many violations including a union that might not be legit. Ops managers are horrible they treat employees like slaves working 20 consecutive days 12 hours. In order to fit in the Ashland CULTURE you MUST not have integrity, MUST be able to lie on a day to day basis, sabotage your peer's talent, violate labor laws like ODRISA, and OSHA MUST love to expose employees to hazardous chemicals and work conditions. MUST obey the union and MUST agree to not follow the CBA. MUST make up lies, MUST plot against others within the leadership, MUST be able and promote a TOXIC environment.
Office Clerk (Former Employee) – Aurora, IL – November 19, 2018
I worked here for several years. The big policy change this year was the men got to stop wearing a tie everyday. Come on it's 2018 not 1970. They like to push the free lunch. How about you keep the lunch, the food is not that good anyway and kick up salaries a bit. Or better yet how about a computer that actually works or a cleaning company that cleans the bathrooms. They keep hiring more and more Human Resource people but the policies are so far behind. If you are considered a "hourly" office employee you will never see work from home or any type of flex time or summer hours. People are leaving at the rate of 2-3 per month. Management says they are leaving because they are "bored". No they are leaving for companies with modern policies. Also, if you need HR good luck. They sit behind a locked door that you can't even get in the department. Your supervisor turns on you like a shark and you can't even have a conversation with HR about it.
Ammonia Refrigeration Technician (Current Employee) – West Jordan, UT – October 7, 2018
I start work at 6 am , do my rounds. fix what needs to be fixed. I learned more about electrical components. My department management is very helpful and willing to train . My co-workers help you out when needed and they also ask for my help if needed. The hardest part of the job is getting up at 4 am . ( i hate alarm clocks ) I won't lie to you , the best part of the job is going home. ( just like any other job ) Some days it can get very busy Summary...I like working there , they don't micro manage , they work with you to solve problems. they are a fun group of people.
Packer (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – August 15, 2018
Terrible place to work the Hispanic lady's from first and second shift would always talk bad about me, never stopped even when I was good at my job management and HR did nothing to help me or give me a different shift , managers treat you with no respect basically force you to work up to 14 hour shifts
Manager (Current Employee) – West Jordan, UT – February 27, 2018
OSI is the place you've never heard of, but wish that you had. This gem of a plant in West Jordan quietly goes about getting its job done every day. What outsiders don't know is that this is a fantastic place to work. Work/life balance is a top priority and long hours just for the sake of long hours is discouraged. The safety and well-being of the employees is priority number one.
Safety and well-being of employees is priority #1
Privately held means little financial data is shared
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 1, 2017
I wouldnt recomend this job to noone it was not worth for my health. I was already told not to work there i should have listened! Had me working 7 days 12 hrs a day and if we woulnt volunteer it was mandatory specially if we were new to the company. It was forces into us to work!
Managment is bad and they dont care about noone but their product!
Easy when other departments provide proper support
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Geneva, IL – October 25, 2017
Not a bad place to work. Great hours for a production plant. It is tough to find a production plant that does not work six or seven days a week. On average only work five days a week and ten hours a day as a supervisor.
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – October 12, 2017
The management only thinks about them self's and could care less about the workers,home life balance sucks, working conditions suck ,the pay is not very good, don't waste your time working at OSi you will quit in a week!
One day off!
Never knowing if you are going to work the weekend until Friday.
Accounting Clerk (Former Employee) – West Jordan, UT – September 16, 2017
I worked there for a year-and-a-half the controller that hired me was amazing but the plant manager and other people ran him out then he quit and they hire this new controller and he was a complete jerk he degraded me made me feel like I was stupid if those are the things that you like go work for the accounting department at OSI West Jordan
Some people are good and you will learn real quick who they are
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – May 24, 2017
Great management team that is highly motivated. This is a new facility so it is an exciting time to be part of the team. However, because of growing volumes and some growing pains the work/ life balance is sometimes difficult.
