Not a bad place to work for some.
PROCESS ENGINEER, FACILITIES MAINTENANCE (Current Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIAugust 7, 2018
Pridgeon and Clay is under great ownership, but poor management in some departments. There are too many layers of management and micro-management is one issue I have with Pridgeon and Clay.

Nice work place with a relaxed work environment
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Grand Rapids, MIMarch 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.
Pros
Paid lunch, and a cafeteria
Cons
Short lunch break (15 mins) and cafeteria was only available to first shift

Poor company
Fork lift (Former Employee) –  GRAND RAPIDS MIMarch 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.
Pros
Cafeteria insurance
Cons
Managment a joke

Fast paced, and cutt throat
Weld Technician (Former Employee) –  Franklin, INJanuary 8, 2018
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, MIDecember 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...
