Welder (Current Employee) – Johnson Creek, WI – July 12, 2018
My first welding job, they were willing to train me on many different things from programing robots to basic welding techniques. The pay wasn't great until quite recently that they did a market correction for wages.

I really enjoyed my time at Schiller. I only left to go get my MBA and would gladly go back to work there afterwords. My managers were very fair and helpful. It was a great environment to learn and grow in with a lot of opportunity. The job was challenging but the company was there to help you succeed. Highly recommended.

Assembly (Current Employee) – Johnson Creek, WI – December 4, 2014
I begin at 6 am each day.My job is to attach decks to the mowers and then hot test them to be sure everything is correct on machine and that it runs properly.I have learned many things about the ins and outs of assembling the mower itself.I have worked many different stations in my time on the line.Managment has a lack of communication amongst themselves so it causes confusion to the employees sometimes.Overall they are very nice to us and make us feel welcome each day.My co-workers are awesome! have made many friends there.The hardest thing about the job is nothing is ever consistent.One day it's rush rush rush and the next is slow down.I enjoy the people there very much and have made alot of friendships.

Unstable management situation, understaffed, low regard for employee input
Buyer / Purchasing Coordinator (Current Employee) – Southampton, PA – October 27, 2014
For a 100% procurement company, there is little regard for managing inventory and very little controls in place to achieve this goal. There is also little regard for the input from the operations team outside of management, which is overworked and carries too much responsibility that could easily be delegated.
Sales of 5 brands consisting of mostly niche products through multiple channels with limited budget and resources created challenges.
Director of Sales/Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee) – Southampton, PA – January 22, 2014
A typical day consisted of multiple meetings and high level of emails which demanded responses. Limited time and resources to meet expectations of senior management. Learned to rely on sales team and distributors to supply detail analysis of sales of over 300 sku's. Developed new forecasting model and implemented A3 practices in an attempt to supply details. Dedicated group of co-workers who were all over whelmed in with limited budgets and high expectations. The largest challenge was meeting the demands of senior management while respecting the needs of our business partners. The most enjoyable part of the job was the launching of the new forecasting, business plans and A3 processes with the assistance of the sales team and our business partners. Action Plans were drafted to address any plans that were falling short of expectations. Understanding their challenges and having them involved in designing a solution lead to wide acceptance of the new projects. Result were sales that exceeded budget and outpaced total company.
Well financed company, recently introduced products received well in the marketplace, long term distribution partners
