Good workers,management suffered from communication issues
MRO Customer Service (Former Employee) – Lincoln, AL – February 29, 2016
Voith is a good company, with good people. Like most, it has it's pros and cons. The best thing about the company is, for lack of better terms,the family dynamic. Everyone relies on each other so heavily that it forces the teams to pull together. People who start off not getting along, will usually end up finding common ground.
The downside is miscommunication from the management level. This may change as the company is being bought out, but there were three supervisors in charge of our group. Good people,but not very good at communicating with each other on the big issues...and certainly not on passing relative information down to the associates on the floor.
This created a situation where a new schedule was implemented, with the goal of cutting down overtime. Due to miscommunication of how to set it up, some of us ended up working 6-7 days a week for 4 months...some even longer.
