Production Worker (Current Employee) – Sugarcreek, OH – January 16, 2018
its simple its hard work , but once you get use to it its really not that bad the pay is fair when you look at what you make there and compare it to other places alot of changes in process that were way overdue hopefully its not too late for the company I'm not completely sure what is going on with champion and this "merger''. only time will tell. alot of confussion on a regular basis the only way to make it work it to keep on going and not stand around and wait on someone else because that will not get you home when you want to be off.
Framer/Carpenter (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – January 9, 2018
This was a fast-paced, long hrs weekly, rough kind of job. Not for the faint of heart. I learned to communicate and endure hard labor. The hardest part of the job was to engage and to finish the day with a great hard work integrity culture as the construction environment is always been hard!
Tiling/drywall/triming (Former Employee) – Lancaster, WI – January 5, 2018
I worked at skyline for over two years. They do not care about people. To them everyone is expendable. Its the bottom line they care about, and you will here that in every manager you meet. They push push push for a low grade inferior product. The departments are dirty and unhealthy. They will not improve there safety practices, unless OSHA says so. So this means the drywall crew has to sand with light weight paper masks, all the while hacking up a lung. They have meetings telling everyone how much they are making, and that profits are way up, but you never see any improvements in the working environment. Id rather dress up in a clown suit standing outside of a restaurant waving some silly banner, then work at skyline. Pass this place up, you will be much better off in the long run. And if you have seen how these homes are thrown together, you would never consider a prefab home in your life!

bad management, poor wages, unhealthy working environment
Asst. Plant Manager (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – November 6, 2017
this company pays it's workers in the poverty range while the owners have mansions in Elkhart, Chicago , and Miami. you can't take pride in your work because they want to build the cheapest product they can utilizing the cheapest, most inferior products they can find
LABORER (Former Employee) – Sugarcreek, OH – September 21, 2017
I started here fresh out of high school with working no more than 5 hours at a time due to being a minor and in school (previous job). I worked 12-14 hours a day, which is hard for someone who hasn't worked that long and hard before. It was too brutal working with bad equipment and with people that weren't that nice or fair.
Skyline is a home builder with a stressful environment
Electrician (Former Employee) – 606 South East Main Street Mansfield Texas – September 18, 2017
I worked at Skyline for 2 years it's a very fast-paced environment which can be very stressful the supervisors we're somewhat new to the position. Advancements were hard in certain positions because the company was always short-handed I had no problem with the supervisors or managers. They would tell you that I was a hard-working man always on time never late for work and I knew my job. At this time Skyline is no longer in business they were bought out by Champion Homes.
Department Secretary (Former Employee) – Elkhart, IN – April 17, 2015
The years I worked at Skyline were good years. I worked full-time and learned a lot about document and spreadsheet productive in Excel. I also had the opportunity for a promotion into not one but two positions for Department Secretary of Manufactured Housing and Recreational Vehicles. The hardest part of my job was probably the full-time hours being a single mother of a young child and paying for a finding child care all the time. The most enjoyable part of the job was the many close friends I made during my years of working at Skyline.
Excellent benefits package and paid vacation time.
Productive and fun work week in the systems built housing industry
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Ephrata, PA – July 23, 2014
A typical day in the office was taking calls and caring for accounts to help them place orders for production. That the business is a feast or famine industry. Meaning, their either is too much business to handle or not enough business to keep the plants producing. Had a great relationship with all of my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was having to learn all of the components that go into building a home in the plant. The most enjoyable part of the job is the feeling you got when you signed on a new account for your company, a feeling of success.
The individuals in the sales team worked very well togther and enjoyed each others successes

Very fast pace enviroment, good people to work with, excellent pay
Manufacturing/Warehouse work (Former Employee) – Fair Haven, VT – July 27, 2013
I did not mind working here it was a very fast pace job,the people were good to work with it was a good enviroment. I typically did roofing, put together walls to be set next down the line. It was a long assembly line and every station had its purpose. Hardest part of the job was sometimes it got a little out of control with the fast pace other than that it was a great job.
Excellent pay, good benefits, good people to work with
Talked a lot about safety but really didnt enforce it
Tape and Texture Crew Leader (Current Employee) – Arkansas City, KS – July 5, 2013
I like my job however its very stressful to work under the people i do. Cant lead if your always being yelled at and pulled to the side. I also would like to be talked to like a person and have it be a normal work respect. I also would like a steady work flow, its hard to support a family when your getting layed off every other week.
Job, pay sometimes.
Management, checks arnt always reliable, layed off a lot.
