POOR management Local Driver (Current Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – February 6, 2019 As a local driver only way to makes decent living is to suck up to management favoritism if not a buddy you get stuck AWFUL stay away. Denies any issues within management all driver fault loads taken from one to give to the buddy system guys and your left with near nothing. If management would do there correct job would be a great place to work.
Factory Worker (Former Employee) – Fontana, CA – February 16, 2019
Boxing items has never been funner! This job is fast-paced; teaching any newcomers to be on their toes. An extremely rewarding job! Management is highly interactive with workers; co-workers make working a breeze. The hardest part of the job was keeping up but as you work it becomes easier. The most enjoyable part was being able to interact with co-workers while you work and seeing the results of your efforts.
Dealing with h r dispatch and management is hard. H r people couldnt run the counter at the local burger joint. Dispatch you never need to know name
Current driver (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – February 15, 2019
H r needs total overhaul dispatch goes thru dispatchers so fast u never get to know their names. Dispatch for drivers couldnt tell you ehat trailer went where. Alot of mis communicatipn no one talks to other dispatch in office. But will email them even thou they sit back to back. They are good to set new drivers up to fail from the minute they start.dispatchoffice is like a runway in strip club.6 inch heels cheap dressed dispatch.but by far h r what a joke not there for anyone. They support and back you if you keep your nose to their butts. Hr couldnt run the counter at the local burger joint.

Do not pay attention to " Laid Back Nice People " review. He is a truck driver. ONLY the truck drivers are union. Management does not follow or enforce their own policies. If you are in production you will NEVER be allowed to speak of unionizing. The company HATES that word.
First Helper on Rotary Die Cutter (Former Employee) – Springfield, OH – January 24, 2019
The hours are long but the overtime pay makes up for it in my opinion. You do get paid for all.of your break time but only get 2 15 minute and 1 10 minute break in a 12 hour work.day. Younger expected to eat your meals in this time as wdll.
Paid lunch and breaks.
Only get 40 total minutes of break time in a 12 hour shift

TRUCK DRIVER (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN 46383 – January 3, 2019
Pratt pays at least $4/hr lower than the average of local drivers in the Chicagoland area. Their dispatchers push the drivers as close to the 14 hour rule as possible. The mandatory overtime is supposed to be once a month, but they were pushing 3 weekends every month. As far as family time, it was pretty much non-existent unless you were management or dispatch.
The company did not make a work schedule that was comparable with the actual job duties. They did not pay well, and there was a lack of advancement. I learned how to manage a large number of employees, without much help from management. I learned to trouble-shoot and problem-solve on my own.
2nd helper (Current Employee) – Conyers, GA – December 26, 2018
Overall it’s a decent place to work its 8 hour shifts and get overtime every week almost.As a stackoff man job easy once you get the hang of it but starting pay could be better and fast pace at times.I will say this the plant is very clean the line goes down they have u sweep the floors.The management is ok but not perfect but that’s everywhere
Load former (Current Employee) – Statesville, NC – December 21, 2018
This is a great place to work. Pay just starting is great,after 90 days it goes up. People are friendly.Its fast paced most of the time but sometimes chill.The only thing I disagree with is mandatory overtime without notice,an hour before you are supposed to clock out they tell you to stay
Pratt (Current Employee) – Lathrop, CA – December 14, 2018
Culture is very important to the company as a whole and is instilled from day one. Most days are fast paced and busy. Plenty of opportunity for advancement, within this plant and other plants around the country.
