Brazier (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – July 11, 2018
Would not listen to reason and wanted me to make it work. Then would complain about not being fast enough. Supervisor and team leads could not do my job nor take the time to update the schematic and blueprint
fork lift driver (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – June 20, 2018
A typical workday at Rheem would be to clock in 14 minutes prior to shift. Get a schedule and see what 1st shift had accomplished and check machine before starting. Then finished the schedule for the next day work.
I believe Rheem is trying to move in the right direction.
Group Coordinator (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – June 11, 2018
As a whole, management has improved its communication with hourly employees concerning its vision for Rheem as a manufacturer and its desire to improve its products and services. The hardest part of working at Rheem is working during the summer. Rheem is not air conditioned. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with the people.
Senior Production Facilitator (Current Employee) – Montgomery, AL – May 25, 2018
Its a good job with old school ways from 20+ year tenured employees on average. Its the most union-non union shop you will ever find. You seriously have to mess up to get fired from here. The commercial end of the business carries the facility and I keep it going.

Crimper (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – March 27, 2018
If I could I would go back to rheem if I had a chance. It's laid back, kinda like your supervising yourself but your really not... it's very easy and quick to learn... and the people there are easy to work with... and the pay is pretty good also
Work laod stressful majority of the time 7 days a week
Arc Welder, quality assurance air and gas tester (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – March 16, 2018
that is all I can say just wish it was fair for temps across the board I was ignored with perfect attendance on monorail for 2 years I learned a lot from working in two different departments. I suggest they make it more family oriented try and bring the plant together to better the work environment and livelihood of the production floor . Team leaders should be evaluated quarterly better tabs kept on them from the production floor all the way to plant manager. more incentives for employees. and actually hire people to give hope might change turn over rate for the plant. The favoritism in high places not necessary main reason a lot of good workers get overlooked in the hiring cycle.
Accounts Receivable Accountant (Former Employee) – Dunwoody, GA – February 4, 2018
The management needs growth in their knowledge of accounting as well as how to deal with employees. This was a bad experience for me. I wanted growth from management and could not get it because he lacked knowledge
Safety & Work Comp Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Smith, AR – January 31, 2018
Culture can be a little tough and it is a union environment. Overall, not necessarily a bad place to work. Implementing change can be a challenge but with hard work and union buy-in, it can certainly be done.
It’s a great job to have if you’ve secured full time position
Material Maintenance (Former Employee) – Montgomery, AL – January 24, 2018
I really enjoyed my time working for Rheems. It was very convenient as far as lunch and and if you ever need a atm. Long hours which were welcomed and freedom to work without being harassed. Management can be kind of shaky with so many people you have to go through.
