Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – September 6, 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The high management are tyrants, in my opinion, and do not care at all about their employees. The pay is awful. The morale is non existent. The raises are.... depressing really and they make no sense whatsoever. They do not want employees. They want robots that they don’t have to pay.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Trenton, GA – July 9, 2018
I have worked with this company for almost 2 years now and they have their ups and their downs. Its not hard work, there is a lot of walking and climbing up and down all day long. Its hot in the building and is awful to work outside. but overall I love my job here. I would recommend people to work here.
Large Format Printer (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – December 28, 2017
a typical day at work was busy most of the day then when I was not busy I was keeping my workplace clean or helping another department never sent home because we were slow my boss was fun to work with He appreciated my dedication and knowledge of my job
Excellent people but Company still has potential to grow
Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – St. Paul, MN – January 10, 2017
Great people all around, from management to co-workers. I wish there was a structured plan of training and long term plan for growth and advancement. All in all it is a GREAT learning experience in a high stakes large format printing company working for awesome Fortune 500 companies with long and short term programs. Even if the role is simply data entry for some positions there is still great take away from every role.
Great co-workers and uplifting team work setting.
Little or no performance review structure or long term plan for advancement
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Saint Paul, MN – June 18, 2016
The position was not exactly what I had thought it would be as mostly it was data input. I was looking for more hands on and to be more personal with actual customers. When I was working there, the main Head Quarters was located down town St. Paul and not adjacent to the actual facility where production of products were being produced which seemed to make it hard to know the status of your project. I now believe they have changed and are now under the same roof. I did get to learn a lot about the industry and going to the 3M school to learn was a great opportunity.
I live in the northern metro area so drive got to be to long for me.
Santa Fe Springs, Ca - Finishing Specialist (Current Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – January 13, 2016
A lot of the opportunities go to management family members. Ultimately, this has led me to seek those opportunities elsewhere. After three years of the nickel and dime dance, they begin to hire people from the agency at a pay rate hire than mine-- including raises. After the loyalty and quality of work I have put in, I thought I deserved better.
horrible management. No room to advance. High egos.
CNC operator and Warehouse Person (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs – July 8, 2015
Although co-workers in same department are great to get along with, the management is horrible. There is only one qualified manager here and the plant manager micromanages him and doesn't let him manage what he should manage. Other managers try to take charge with no professionalism. One is verbally abusive and has everyone else on a leash. This place has tremendous room to expand, however top management officials are a bunch of settlers. One manager has a tremendous background in managing and production lines, but isn't given the opportunities. The hardest part of the job is that there is no appreciation for the hard work employees do. They are too worried about numbers rather than treating employees like family. I've learned how not to manage people and how not to take control of people who work for you. Plant controllers have too high of an ego to take valuable suggestions from employees and believe that everything they say is correct.
Fabrication Lead (Former Employee) – Minnesota – July 2, 2015
A typical day at work would be to get employees and temps. set up and ready for assembly and packing parts to ship. I have learned how to assemble read blue prints and liquid weld parts. The hardest part of my job communicating with non- English speaking employees. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting the products done right and getting them out the door on time. Overall a good place to work, just no room to grow for advancement
