Assembler 1 (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – May 30, 2018
As a Team of 8-10 people have to hit a target of 200 to 300 winches a night, while also building pallets for day shift. While building pallets you have to pull parts for the order and a lot of the time we would be out of a part which then requires to find a second location and if its not found we have to problem solve for the situation.
(June-Oct) - Senior Cost Accountant (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – May 20, 2018
Uncommunicative. VERY poor training. Standoffish and no effort to include or improve my skillset. Told employees one thing while just the opposite was happening. Management was just going thru the motions.
Production/Assembler (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – May 15, 2018
Management has no clue what they are doing, they don't listen to the employees when production problems arise. Usually just expect us to "make it happen". There are a lot of two-faced people working there, pretend to be friendly than run to management when anything goes wrong. Logistics is a nightmare. There are never the parts there when the orders are needed, training new employees is a joke. Trainers all do things differently leading to mistakes and poor quality work. Machines constantly break down. If anything serious comes up, management and HR railroad you till you either shut up about the problem or are forced to quit.
Poor management, backstabbing. Company does not care about employees family lives at all.
Recycling lead, and customer service for will-call (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – December 2, 2017
picking all day, for domestic and international orders. Very fast paced environment. Building also has a lot of other employees in it so must watch out for them. Great crew, Management when I was there was great.
Planner/Buyer ii (Former Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – August 19, 2017
I was part of a new team established to produce ATV Powertrain components to a new ATV customer/manufacture. It was a very challenging and fast paced place to work. We were pushed to meet deadlines for component and sub-assembly shipments. The JDE ERP was a challenge as it was outdated and difficult to navigate in. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the quality products we produced.
Culture, fun workplace, work hard/play hard mantality!

I learned that it takes a complete team to get your job done right. management team was very strong they always cared about the employee and the working conditions. the hardest part was trying to take care of all the different teams and their needs. the most enjoyable part was working with awesome people.
Production/Assembler (Current Employee) – Milwaukie, OR – June 24, 2017
Day starts with no supervisor, lazy people, everyone's out for themselves. Learned to make winches on very outdated, often broken down equipment. Management cares nothing about workers. Culture is that of pretending to be friendly then stabbing others in the back. Long work hours, very low, non-competitive pay.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Clackamas, OR – June 17, 2017
Their product is exactly what overseas companies can do very efficiently which puts them in a constant struggle to cut costs. Very high overhead kills their margins and stresses the entire company to the limit. Find a company that make a product which has a future.
Mandatory overtime for salaried employees, micromanaging, verbal abuse, and overtaxed workforce.
Machinist II (Current Employee) – Clackamas, OR – June 11, 2017
If you're a machinist, it's a pretty good place to work with a good boss, opportunity for OT and cross training. If you're an assembler, it's not as good a place to work. Minimal opportunity for advancment.
Big discount on products, 10 paid holidays off/year, lots of OT, 3 weeks of PTO
