Suwanee - if you are desprate
Manufacturing Technician (Former Employee) –  Suwanee, GAJune 21, 2019
Be real careful going here. The culture is bad and management/leadership is terrible. There is no advancement possible, even though they try and tell you there is. Bad would be a compliment for leadership. They do not know how to manage...only interested in themselves. Over 20 people have come and gone in my time there. Management always says that the employee has the problem and there is a reason they are gone and does not see that the poor, abusive culture that leadership encourages is a problem. I left because I was tired on the rude, unethical treatment by management and the culture they foster. A couple of other employees by into this and it becomes a watch your back place. I am much healthier since I left as are others who did the same. This place will take everything from you if you let them.....don't bother with HR as they are worse than leadership.
Pros
You have a job
Cons
Very abusive and controlling

This review only pertains to the location in Kennesaw Georgia.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Kennesaw, GAJune 12, 2019
Polyone Corporation is amazing. The site in Kennesaw is a different story. I wish someone had given me this information prior to me working there. The environment is extremely toxic. Polyone Corporation Prides itself on being a great place to work and even has all of its employees complete a survey that is gone over by the president himself with a fine-tooth comb. Polyone also Prides itself on being a diverse, inclusive, safe and supportive environment. No one is minding the store in Kennesaw as this is not the case at this location. Management does not follow the same mantra as long as the company is making money. Human Resources is non-existent. If you are ethical, prideful, hard working and respect yourself as a professional; run don't walk from Speciality Inks in Kennesaw Georgia. If you have an opportunity to work at any other location especially the corporate office in Avon Lake please consider it a great one.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Toxic work environment with lackadaisical management

Only if you need a short term job
Technician (Former Employee) –  Suwanee, GAJune 1, 2019
Starts out well with promises and encouragement but quickly erodes. Leadership is a joke. They push only what did we get done today? All of the leadership is very inexperienced or young. I was moved from one area to another then micromanaged by a new lead person with little to no experience. HR shows up once or twice a month and is useless to talk to. Director level is in another state and shows up once every other month. Working with the older people is good...they have a grasp on reality. Work here only if you need money.
Pros
Not many
Cons
List is long

Not bad for plastics, but room for improvement and unrealistic expectations from Corporate level
Operator Engineered Materials (Former Employee) –  Avon, OHMay 30, 2019
Hot work but better than most plastics plants. Plant level leadership was easy to talk to but shift level leadership is lacking in some shifts. Seems to have a hard time keeping people in due to changes in company policy for production level staff. Older staff less helpful in general but not always. Overall really enjoyed the job but left because of multiple "near-miss" incidents that could had easily been corrected if shift level leadership came out of the office or was as concerned with safety as higher ups.
Pros
Fairly clean for a plastics plant, Good pay if you know your job, Generally helpful coworkers and management
Cons
Corporate shake up has left production level swinging in the wind, Safety (while improving) is an issue, Lack of proper equipment to meet expectations

Fast passed work place with yearly cost of living raises. Really hot during summer mouths and working conditions is not for everyone. When production is high there is more enough overtime.

Bad managment
Lead operator (Former Employee) –  Seabrook, TXApril 19, 2019
When I worked there it seemed like upper managements goal was to pay everyone except themselves as little money as possible. As plant operator we were told we were support staff for the material handling department.
Pros
Fast paced

Production Quality Control Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Newark, NJApril 2, 2019
Great company to work for. I believe they went back to their original name, Spartech. Because of all my duties every shift went by very fast. The hardest part may have been going back and forth between the Laboratory in one building and the production warehouse which was in another building. Overall a good place to work at.

It's a job, but it could be better.
Employee (Current Employee) –  Bethlehem, PAApril 1, 2019
This motto of this place is work harder, not smarter. It's very cheaply ran and maintained by management who continuously cut corners financially. Most of the equipment and machines work just barely with very little effort to fix said issues. It can get VERY hot and humid during summer due to poor air circulation and having to wear a respirator when working with the chemical compounds. Its a good starting point in the chemical field however, and the pay is decent depending on your position. My suggestion is work here only if you have to.
Pros
Good experience, shower at the end of shift
Cons
Management, old equipment

Extrusions (Current Employee) –  McHenry, ILMarch 22, 2019
Management was a joke. The work was horrible. Very toxic and super hot in the summer. Very dirty I would not recommend anyone work here. They treat people badly and you are yelled at a lot.

Grinder, extractor, machine operator (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, ALMarch 18, 2019
All they expect is for you to come to work and you'll have a job. Doesn't matter if something happens, you better have time or you will be terminated for missing work.

A Company Confused about its Purpose
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Avon Lake, OHMarch 8, 2019
PolyOne is trying hard to become a Great Place To Work. Many of the cultural initiatives that come along with that have been very fun to witness. However, I get the sense that the company overall is confused about its purpose. They are in a period of transition and the industry overall is struggling. How they adapt to the changes in the industry will be interesting to witness.
Pros
Emphasis on becoming a great place to work
Cons
Bureaucracy, politics, management

Could be a great place
Logistics (Current Employee) –  Webster, TX 77598February 6, 2019
If there was more room for advancement and more communication between management and employees this would be a great place. There are certain individuals that receive all the work that needs to be done while others skate by. Once you show your willingness to accomplish goals and make the place better more work becomes delegated to you and then asked why you haven't gotten it all done.

Dont be fooled
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Norwalk, OHDecember 17, 2018
Long hours and no pay for performance. New hires that do 1/4 of the work you do, make the same rate as you. I was hired in and told a little overtime and seldom work Saturdays, that turned into 12 hours a day and maybe 1 saturday off a month. If you didnt volunteer to work 12 hours they forced you to stay over or come in early. Very , Very short staffed to the point of operating under unsafe conditions. There were times it was just myself and 2 other employees to work a whole shift on Saturday.
