Painter/Laborer (Former Employee) – North Ridgeville, OH – December 31, 2017
I got trained for only 3 days. The guy just assumes you can figure everything out telling you once and when you have a question he gets real rude. Would not recommend paint department. No wonder why the need to fill a while shift and cant.

Laborer (Current Employee) – North Ridgeville, OH – November 14, 2017
This has been the best job I've ever had. Other Employees get upset because changes are happening. If we need to continue to be relevant in the market place, changes have to happen. New facilities, new managers/supervisors, new policies to create an environment of accountability. If you don't like working for a company that goes pays for employee funerals, has parties for every occasion, celebrates wins, encourages creativity, and rewards people for a job well done, then this is not the right company for you. Yes, we work hard. Yes, we are competitive. Yes, the company pushes you to do better. the company is FOR PROFIT. I would recommend this company to anyone!
High turn over in HR department because of their rude attitiudes towards employees. Unfair promotions within company.
HR Manager (Current Employee) – North Ridgeville, OH – July 31, 2017
Too many managers, lower level employees not paid enough and not enough promotion within. They keep making new positions for managers and overpaying them and not paying the vast majority of employees their fair worth. Too much politics going on with the company. Used to be a great company to work for now all of the management and some of the old management have just gotten way too greedy .
Sales Representative/Diver (Former Employee) – East Stroudsburg, PA – February 24, 2017
If you like calling on schools or universities and love and respect football coaches, this place is where to work. I was a driver/ sales rep. Selling new helmets, pads , and uniforms. But the bigger part of my job was very physical. Counting, packing in sacks, loading, and delivering back to our plant all the gear used during the season. We woul the recondition it all for a handsome fee. Then before the following season I would return all the reconditioned gear in cartons, all clean, sanitized, fixed, parts replaced where needed. Helmets would be disassembled, shell and interior parts checked for worthiness and safety and dependability. Most helmets were repainted after the old paint was buffed off or sandblasted. Face mask was replaced if any bare metal showed through the heavy vinyl coating. In most cases new decals were put on.
