Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Monett, MO – September 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.

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.
