Inventory Control Specialist (ICS) (Current Employee) –  Spirit Lake, IAFebruary 15, 2019
Overall Polaris is a good company to work at. The pay and benefits are pretty on par with the cost of living for the area. They are a Lean based company and therefore are very structured with their processes and material flow from raw to finished goods. There is opportunity for career advancement.
Cons
Lines frequently go home for production and/or parts supply issues, Therefore it leads to fairly inconsistant work hours and paychecks.

Quality Auditor (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALFebruary 4, 2019
Stressful place to work, very bad communication and poor management. The culture in this place is a very interesting one, but it had become a place where everyone plays hide and seek. Never make plans on a saturday with the family, because most of the time if they didn't made their numbers, your saturday is going to be mandatory at the last minute. They are not family oriented.

Fun Product, Horrible culture
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Medina, MNJanuary 22, 2019
If you want to work endless hours, not be appreciated for doing so but work with fun product, this is the place for you. In the past few years the emphasis has been bringing in folks that worked for big companies and have MBAs but know very little about powersports. This has destroyed the culture and the very basis of what the company was built on. The emphasis on making money vs. focusing on quality is evident by recall after recall. The company is top heavy with very little workers to execute who are then blamed because they can't do the work of six people. It doesn't matter how hard you work or how many hours you give because career paths don't exist unless you know how to play the politics. It's a good thing the founders of this company are deceased or they would be disappointed to see what this company has become.
Pros
Fun Product
Cons
Terrible management, poor morale, unethical

Cool products
Operations (Current Employee) –  Spirit Lake, IAJanuary 15, 2019
Love the products. The product discounts are really great. Management only looks out for themselves and advancement is reserved for "buddies" rather than skills.

Operator, Assembly (Current Employee) –  Madison, ALJanuary 15, 2019
this is a good company to work for, it is full time and a fast pace environment. You are solely responsible for your work. When a unit comes to your station you are responsible for doing your part and installing your parts on the vehicle

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALJanuary 4, 2019
Getting the job at Polaris was the best thing that had ever happened to me. My family as so proud of me, I worked so hard within the probation period to make sure I was there on time every day that I was scheduled to work. The vibes there was always awesome everyone there had the mindset of coming to work and doing what was expected out of them.
Pros
Great lunches
Cons
Short break

CAD Development Specialist (Current Employee) –  Plymouth, MNDecember 27, 2018
Engineering is very busy and can be chaotic but overall it is an exciting and challenging field at Polaris. The day can get stuffed up with meetings but the end product is worth it.

Worst place in Huntsville to work PERIOD!!!!
Line One Sub Assembly. (Current Employee) –  Huntsville, ALDecember 14, 2018
Granted Polaris is a "start up" company but it is absolutely ridiculous that the mangers, supervisors, and HR are so caught up in sticking up for each other than for the actual employees that bust their cans 10 to 12 hours a day. You never know what time you will be getting off work from day to day because no matter how hard you work, you are ALWAYS behind schedule. They do NOT care about the employees what so ever. HR is the biggest issue with the plant. They have NO idea what to do or how to help with any problem. If you are not in the so called click out there you might as well not even be there. They let bad parts go out... Problems that are easily fixable are not because that may stop production for 5 minutes. You get two 12 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch no matter how many hours are forced upon you that day. The vacation you work to build up is almost never granted because production is so far behind that one person cannot use their own vacation.... Most of the employees are straight out of high school without families. The members with families you might as well guarantee you will not be seeing them but on Sundays. It's a horrible and I mean horrible place to work period!!!! I have worked there from the day it opened until now and nothing has changed. Lies, lies, and more lies is all it is. They pay stinks, the benefits are pathetic, and the abuse and conduct out there is beyond ridiculous but if anything is said...you get punished for it for being the victim. I would rather flip burgers they to work for that miserable place. And every employee you talk to would  more... 100 percent agree with every statement made!!!  less
Pros
The friends you make while being so miserable.
Cons
The WHOLE plant is terrible From the upper man to the supervisors to the HR, NO ONE is for the actual employees.

Polaris is a great place to work if you like assembly work. It is a more fast paced work environment. They were very focused on quality with everything that is produced.

Warehouse Worker (Current Employee) –  Vermillion, SD 57069December 4, 2018
This job normally runs at a fast pace. Sometimes slower back in receiving. Is a great job for college students. Works around schedules very well. Great pay and benefits. Can be stressful with classes but leads help control that.

Standard Polaris Workday
Production Operator (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, ALNovember 21, 2018
The Huntsville Manufacturing Facility was relatively new when I started working for them. As it was a new facility there was lack of communication between all of the different teams involved in the manufacturing process that sometimes made it hard for the production teams to communicate what they needed from the materials operators. Sometimes this caused lines to be down for several hours at a time. Depending on how long the line would be shut down. They would either send you home or to a new area to learn or send your whole line home. Training was difficult but manageable. Might be more efficient to have an employee led training program before new hires are brought to the production lines to work full-time. Be prepared to work more than 40 hours a week some weeks due to mandatory overtime which you can be penalized for opting out of. Moderately fair pay with room for quarterly raises and performance evaluation raises based on how you are doing at your job and your determination level to learn more. Most of the management teams are very knowledgeable and friendly.
Pros
Structured break times, occasionally free meals, quarterly raises, profit sharing bonus checks.
Cons
Lack of Communication, Lack of Job Advancement, Difficult training process.
