Busy
Painter (Current Employee), Hesston, KSJune 30, 2015
Pros: 30 minutes for lunch
Cons: No life
All about the numbers. A lot of red tape and politics, expected of a big company. Doesn't allow much time for life. Long unpredictable hours. Learned how to spray liquid and powder paint. No one has your back but yourself. The hardest part of the job is carrying everyone else.

There are better places to work...
Engineer (Former Employee), JacksonJune 29, 2015
Pros: fairly good benifits
Cons: not much flex time. 8 am on the button is the start time.
The ag equipment manufacturing and ag markets are in a dump right now.

The average day to day people you work with will be nice folks... the training is poor. Management is distant and typically closed door-ed with a few exceptions. They seem a bit aloof and for as many years as the farming economy has shown them repeating trends in down market they always show up trends until the day you get the door.

Very unorganized company
Dealer Training Coordinator (Current Employee), Duluth, GAMay 27, 2015
Pros: Quarterly lunch with other departments
Cons: expect employees to do more with less and same pay.
The benefits are not bad. As far as pay and management they have alot to be desired. They had a major layoff this year and the workload is doubled for the rest of us. They are not know for the wages they pay.

Nice place to work but in Heston, KS where nothing else exists and the competition is tough with John Deer taking the market share.

Un-professional
Assembly (Current Employee), Beloit, KSDecember 22, 2014
Pros: good coworkers
Cons: bad management
The hours in many areas of the plant vary from day to day with little or no advanced notice. The upper management causes most of the problems not only with work load but also with the constant change in hours. Many of the leads/supervisors have bad attitudes and do not care for their employees. The work is not hard but is time consuming. The supervisors typically do not understand if a person is sick or needing time off for any reason other than a death in the family. I would not recommend this job to anybody.

Test Engineer Intern (Former Employee), Jackson, MNOctober 26, 2014
A typical day at AGCO would involve either starting a new test for a engineer, continue a test already in progress, or finish the test report for the engineer to review. The hardest part of the job as to fix all the problems that came up during the test. Either a part that broke on a machine or problem solve why a certain system wasn't working properly. The reason I enjoyed this job was because it was a lot of hands on work, working on large agricultural machinery,and having something different to work on everyday.

Certified forklift driver/ Assembler B (Current Employee), Hesston, KSSeptember 5, 2014
Pros: laid back environment
Cons: layoffs and managment
A typical day at AGCO is just that typical. We go in for the morning meetings then we go about our business. We sub up parts for the combines then try to get them moving down the line as quick and effective as possible.

CNC Laser Operator (Former Employee), Beloit, KSAugust 19, 2013
Pros: learned a new trade
Cons: not enough possitve feed back when deserved
As any job had its greats and its bad, learned a lot from certain co-workers, learned a new trade and had fun doing it. Management had more lows than ups got along with my super but had some issues with other immature younger ones and that felt threatened by any of my ideas or took it upon themselves to take the credit for ideas that were not even theirs type of issues. the hardest part would have had to be the amount of hand unloading that one person had to endure in a shift but it was part of the job. The most I liked was the fun and something new every day with the actual Laser machines themselves.
