Good place to work, don't upset the Supervisors as a contractor
Repair Technician (Current Employee) –  Bentonville, ARJuly 5, 2018
Zebra is a great place to work, easy to understand the ins and outs of the job, and great people to work with. However, as most of their workforce is contract based, it's difficult to maintain a solid sense of job security when your contract could be ended on the whim of any of the supervisors there.
Pros
Good and helpful people to work with
Cons
Bad middle management, power trips, lack of understanding of day to day issues

Customer Support Specialist II (Former Employee) –  Lincolnshire, ILJune 29, 2018
Good managers but to many supervisors and not enough workers.

CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE SPECIALIST (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJune 27, 2018
This job is good paying however the lack of help does get stressful. I think we need better management and you cant really go up in this business unless you know someone or live close to their head quarters or repair center.
Pros
good pay and raises
Cons
Management needs some work

Had a good time while it lasted
Engineering Technician III (Former Employee) –  Vernon Hills, ILJune 14, 2018
Got laid off after the CEO announced record earnings. There was a coworker with a history of alcohol abuse. No one seemed to do anything about it. I never understood that because he was a frequent problem. He would swear and no one could get anything from him. When he was sober he was the nicest and most helpful person.
Pros
Nice environment
Cons
They had a protected employee who could do no wrong

Repair Technician (Current Employee) –  Bentonville, ARJune 12, 2018
There are some days where you enjoy your job and there are some days where you don't. The management changed so therefore the job was not as much fun anymore. You learn new things often. You cant really mess up here and blame someone else. You work at your own bench by yourself but also part of a team.

Don’t Work Here
Production Worker (Current Employee) –  Greenville, WIJune 7, 2018
Management is absolutely horrific. If you work in the office or work for corporate, you have it made. If not, good luck. The plant manager and some supervisors harass employees and back stab them. Harassment is extremely prevalent here. If you’re being harassed, good luck going up the chain of management because they all condone it.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Everything else

Horrible work place
Crosstrain (Former Employee) –  Bentonville, ARMay 26, 2018
It’s a horrible and stressful work place. If people don’t like you will stab you in the back and get away with it. If they don’t like you they will try to find some way to fire you. It was a hot place you got no sick days or pto. And when you were having a problem with someone you’d boss won’t believe you. And you get no overtime. Also you would have to tell you boss everytime you when to the bathroom. Because people of lying saying I was in the bathroom every hour for 20 mins Which I wasn’t.
Pros
None
Cons
Stressful, back stabbing, poor management

Terrible warehouse management
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Greenville, WIMay 24, 2018
The culture they preach is terrible. Management is a joke. Pay raises are as bad as the management. Work itself wasn’t bad. Just everything around you brings you down. And if you get hurt good luck.
Pros
Can’t think of any
Cons

The acquisition of the Motorola division is behind Zebra finally (bought a division roughly 3x the size of Zebra before purchase). Cultural issues still exist in NY v IL. Some senior management appointed VPs vastly unqualified
