Fun place to work
Customer Care Associate (Current Employee) –  Monett, MOApril 3, 2019
PlayPower is a great place to work, they have a relax dress code. The training is a little lacking but they make sure you have what you need. The overall culture of the workplace is fun and enjoyable because it is a playground company.

People are nice and friendly and supportive - no room for advancement
National Accounts Project Coordinator (Current Employee) –  MissouriJanuary 21, 2019
Company is good to work for, just does not offer opportunities to advance and create a career path.

Department support each other, but company is split between companies - does not have one company feel from all smaller companies that make up Playpower.

I liked showing up to work everyday they worked with me and my school schedule although it was long hours that paycheck made it worth it. I enjoyed my time there and would actually love to go back

This place is a nightmare
Material Handler (Former Employee) –  Lewisburg, PADecember 18, 2018
Female employees are made to feel uncomfortable by the male populations. Employees are treated poorly by most upper management. They dont work with employees and they do a lot of lying

Paint Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Monett, MOOctober 25, 2018
Good hourly rate, but long hours and you are rarely able to get time of to interact with family. mandatory overtime of 50 to 60 hours a week. it's a swinging door type of company, only on average 1 out of every 7 or 8 hires stay, and most dont make it through the first few months. Its a high stress job. the motto is just for show and even the management agree and will remind you, they ont care for you and that you are always replaceable.

Not so good
Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Monett, MOJuly 30, 2018
If you value your family time done work here you’ll work 63 to 74 hours a week Sunday thru Saturday morning at 2 am. 11 to 12 hours a day. The fab team leader and the supervisor don’t even know how to do their jobs. If you had more time home and smart bosses it would be a great place to work.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
No job security.

PlayPower was a fast-paced work environment that did not last very long. Management was alright and the hardest part of the job was trying to stay caught up with the other employees.

Productive and fast paced
Tower Hand (Current Employee) –  Monett, MODecember 1, 2017
This particular company is very fast paced and at times a highly stressful due to the nature of the job. If not performed accurately, it can be a very dangerous job. While the environment is friendly and encouraging, the temperatures are quite high and can be difficult for some one until they acclimate. Management is always approachable and eager to help when needed.
Pros
Always attempt to take care of the health of their empolyees
Cons
very hot climate

Unrealistic Management
Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Monett, MOSeptember 11, 2017
The key deficiencies in the Playpower organization are:
Poor management – too opinionated and lack or real-world plant level manufacturing experience
Lack of planning – the plant ran in an expedite mode. “Production” meetings were to determine what could be shipped that day.
Protracted long work hours (up to 68 hours per shift) cause a loss of high skill level positions. Because of the reputation of Playpower qualified replacement could not be hired fast enough to compensate for the attrition.
The “forecast” which the current budget was based upon was low by as much as 90% - the operations was over capacity for most work cell.
Pros
Close to the Ozarks
Cons
POOR planning or lack of planning

Fast paced, long hours, gets hot. Short breaks
Welder (Current Employee) –  Monett, MOAugust 25, 2017
People are nice that I've met, job conditions aren't too bad, pretty decent place to work. Get two paid 15min breaks, and a paid 30min lunch, unless you leave the area, then you must clock out.
