Sika has a lot of great benefits for its employees but lacks in safety machines are in disrepair and there is no chance of advancement since everything is dictated by seniority, not by work ethics or qualification or knowledge. Production suffers because machines are in disrepair running poorly and even though management is aware of this they will not address the problem until a complete breakdown and even then it is only a patchwork job not addressing the real problem.

Manager first culture, do not care about employees, long hours, poor work life balance. Not a safety first environment. Poor union representation. Some managers work very hard and care about employees but senior managers and company VP does not even know how bad morale really is.
Operator (Former Employee) – Grandview, MO – February 27, 2018
This place is like a circus, things change every time you turn around, work schedule (7 days a week and forced up to 12 hours per day) Managers are very unprofessional and empathic along with the HR manager. Employee's work very hard day in and day out with no gratitude for job's well done! If you are person looking to work yourself to death and have no iteraction with loved ones or friends Sika is agreat fit for you!! Others dont fall in the trap of Sika!!
cant think of any
no days off, no paid breaks except for lunch break
Not a well put together corporation. Management is a brunch of people who shouldn’t have their job also they don’t care about there employees no advancement unless you have a degree and over work their employees.
Sika is a great place to work. The company has experienced a lot of growth through mergers and acquisitions. The culture is good with managers that are passionate about what they do. Overall, good benefit plan, including medical the day you start.

I Mixed ingredients to form Sika concrete. Very messy a lot of heavy lifting, measuring, and weighing up powder substances. i sometimes would machine operate and stand up lift when i needed to pull items. nice people but the only thing was when you work hard some don't like that but hey i work hard. It was a temp service job and i was told it would take 2 to 4 years to make it permanent but the job was temporary Sika worked me real good until the date i was told i was no longer needed the positions were temporary but great experienced i learned some new things
Production (Former Employee) – Grandview, MO – January 5, 2018
If you enjoy having any kind of life outside of work this is not the place for you. Hours are horrible, and forced mandatory OT can happen at any time. Humanity doesn't exist and you will be a number, always feel like a number, and know you are always disposable. The culture is horrible.
operating industrial mixers to mix chemicals for construction and home improvement jobs. no air conditioning very hot in the summer. schedules change all the time planning is very poor. Managers are rude and unprofessional as well as most the employees.
paid vacation and sick days. Good benefits and medical insurance
you cant plan a life outside of work you never know when your hours will change, Bad Management

I love my job, I am challenged yet given a chance to express my own opinions without feeling awkward about it. Management is very professional yet makes the job fun at the same time. The hardest part of my job would be the drive in rush hour traffic! Honestly my job is that enjoyable.
