Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Oak Lawn, IL – April 20, 2018
My typical day would consist of data entry. Some days I would answer the phone as a receptionist and then go to data entry. I would also shred old files and helped clean out an area of the shop. The job itself was not all that hard.
The hardest part of the job was trying to get communication from management so I could know when I was traveling. There was always a 2 day notice right before I had to travel which was really bad and didn't give me much time for anything.
Wynright had good health benefits but they also had a lot of lay-offs. They paid salary, but worked you over 45 hours every week. There were times I worked 75 hours. Management is mostly critical and not big of positive feedback. Overall, I would say it was not a rewarding job, but it helped me improve my SQL query skills.
Sr. Sales Engineer (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 13, 2018
Company has a promising future if they could figure out where they want to fit into the market and then put a plan in place to achieve that. Right now, they are struggling with not having the proper people in the correct roles and suffer from poorly defined operation plans and responsibility assignments.
More stress than should be due to lack of planning and communication.
Staff Accountant (Former Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – November 13, 2017
Despite efforts to maintain my importance in the company, there has been stagnant revenue growth thus causing a major reduction in the workforce in many areas; however, there remains opportunity for other cost centers within the company.
Engineer (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – November 1, 2017
I wanted to stay with the company for a long time. They have good compensation, great benefits, a good work/life balance. However, they are currently going through massive layoffs and many high ranking managers are resigning. There is a lot of uncertainty about whether or not this company is going to make it.
Great benefits, great compensation, good work/life balance
Job Culture. Often you are tasked with very tight budgets to complete all work. The working environment is pleasant most of the time as everyone has their schedules to maintain. Dont expect much support from co workers because their most of them have egos that will get in the way of attitudes. Management. The people who operate in this capacity most of the time will NOT offer much instruction so what whatever you need to complete your assignments you are on your own. Job Security. The prima donnas that work at this place are very talented at what they do as they have respectable tenures. The mid range skill set better create other resources to assist if you lack any of the required skilk sets.
Project Engineer/Project Execution Team (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – March 9, 2015
Wynright is a fairly good company to work for, however the managers were unable or unwilling to work with remote staff. Encouraging internal competition had a detrimental affect on on-boarding new employees.
Growing company struggling to keep up with the demands of a corporate take over
Accounts Payable Specialist (Current Employee) – Elk Grove Village, IL – August 3, 2014
manage accounts and vendor communication for several company locations. Learned to quickly adapt to many different custom made software programs. Successful meet dead lines with high volume of work. My team of coworkers make going to work a pleasure even in a fast paced environment. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with daily changes in procedures while becoming JSOX compliant after the company was purchased. I enjoy just sense of accomplishment for a job well done and completed on time, regardless of the obstacles that occured.
