Talent Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee) – Knoxville, IA – April 19, 2018
Great place to work. Relaxed environment, friendly staff. Rewarding position, challenging busy days make it rewarding. Small family like atmosphere. Not the rigid corporate world where you are just a number
MECHANICAL DESIGNER (Current Employee) – Knoxville, IA – April 17, 2018
It's a great place for entry level designers or even engineers. They have a lot of opportunities on-site with large companies, and potential to land a permanent spot within those companies. Working in the design center is also a rewarding job, but less opportunity there. Also a good company for someone that has been out of the field for a while and wanting to work back into it.
Senior Technical Writer (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 4, 2018
The owner, business leaders, supervisors and workers were all cheerful and fun to work with every day. Each technical writer kept track of their own time to complete each job within the expected guidelines. The work was fast paced, highly technical and very interesting. We were writing technical manuals related to turbine engine operation & maintenance for Rolls-Royce.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the feeling that you were working in a family environment.
Very well managed / friendly workforce
Contracts were completed and I was no longer needed
Design Engineer (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – December 16, 2017
Productive Resources excels in placing resources with on site clients. Those clients and the experience gained are invaluable.
There is little interaction with management. Benefits are poor with everything being negotiated. For example if you want vacation its taken out of your hourly rate. I question the accuracy of other reviews since Productive Resources did not offer paid holidays, your PTO is used. PTO is accrued yearly, so year two or even year five you start over on the accrual process. One percent raises tend to occur bi-yearly, raises are not something to expect.
The on-site resources get very little support from management. There are very few advancement opportunities in the company.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Waterloo, IA – May 10, 2016
As a young Mechanical Engineer, I desired experiences and travelling to be a part of my career. I went to PR for all my contracting needs and found satisfaction in each position they were able to offer. Towards the middle of my career, I decided to settle for a longer term direct-hire role and they worked around the clock until they found the perfect match. They are highly dedicated and always willing to go to bat for their employees.
Drafter (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 4, 2015
Work would include checking emails, getting onto the web links that tracked work and communicating about tasks needing to be complete. Using NX 7.5 and Team Center to complete jobs along with other systems. Many times you work closely with colleagues to complete deadlines and insure quality. There are many chances to brainstorm and problem solve in this workplace. We have many changes in what needs done and how to do it most effectively.
