Packing/Shipping, HI-Lo Driver (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 8, 2018
It was ok, you worked 10hrs a day 6 days a week but the insurance benefits was great, lack of management. The turn around rate was high I met alot of nice people, some people were messy they cared more about work than your family life, they were not willing to train hardworking people.
Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – March 28, 2018
Pridgeon & Clay was a nice job that paid a fitting pay appropriate to the work done there. I liked the environment and the pace in which we had to work. The job also always had overtime available for employees that wanted to pick up hours but was almost always 40 hours a week. That's given there wasn't a Saturday to work. Benefits were great also. I would love to get back to this job or something similar.
Paid lunch, and a cafeteria
Short lunch break (15 mins) and cafeteria was only available to first shift
Fork lift (Former Employee) – GRAND RAPIDS MI – March 8, 2018
Very poorly run company, the supervisors let there gal friends hang out in the bathroom and not work.Very dirty floor and dangerous in the grinding area. Good insurance and very nice cafeteria if you work days. They hire mostly Ghetto rats, major turn over they treat forklift drivers like dirt. I can't believe they stay in business.

Daily tasks included: Picking parts Recording numbers into the systems correctly Working with forklifts to move orders around the plant I was on third shift and the management team was not a very good one, the managers were nearly never present, I had to teach myself hoe to operate the machine i had to use. And when i finally got someone to train me it was only their second day!?!? But still got chewed out for it being wrong.
Set Up Technician (Current Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – December 28, 2017
You cant beat the benefits! There are opportunities to grow and go to school without racking up school loan debt. They offer $10,500 per for associates, bachelors and masters programs. They have competitive and just for fun teams (softball, soccer, volleyball soon to come). It would take alot for me to leave...
