Professional yet enjoyable work environment.
Accounting Clerk (Current Employee), Edwardsville, ILFebruary 17, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule.
Cons: healthcare
Typical day includes making bank deposit, updating client accounts, printing reports, making collection calls. Our management system is professional but also flexible, my managers motto is "family comes first", so if ever my kids are sick or get hurt at school I am able to take the time needed to be with them as long as I am able to keep up with my – more... workload. I cannot honestly say there is anything hard about my job, so I would have to say the one hour commute each way is the hardest. I love being able to go in the office and do my job every day, and some days I have the opportunity to go above and beyond to do special things that make me feel extra productive. – less

Stress sales lack of support
Field Service Representative (Former Employee), Oregon/Washington/Idaho/WyomingFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: company car, gas, credit card
Cons: overworked, under paid, do more for less, manager takes credit for your work
Bad management, uses scare tactics to "encourage" you to work harder. No matter what you do it's never enough. No support as a rep in the field, work hard to make a sale and manager takes credit.
Claims doesn't stand behind mistakes and factory errors, thus upset dissatisfied customers.
You are replaceable and told so many times. To advance is to suck – more... up to Managers and be a part of the good ole boys club or be related to someone in upper management. – less

Failing management, manufacturing closures, morale eroded
Executive Business Administration (Former Employee), Braeside, VICFebruary 1, 2014
Not a pleasant place to work now since 'change management' team appointed. Culture has degenerated due to new management. Work reduced since China plant has opened 03/13 hence orders declined.

Immediately threaten your job
Lean Master Engineer (Former Employee), South Gate, CAJanuary 29, 2014
I was hired to work in the South Gate plant as a corporate employee, never reported to anyone for 3 months because they moved my boss into another position.

I was never given any training on my job and immediately was threatened that if my performance was not better I would be in a; Job in jeopardy. I replied really I just started dont you get a chance – more... to learn your position and there response was you should know it. Everything you do rather its filling out your insurance or establishing a budget you get zero training or help on. I was working 70 hours a week and decided that I was not going to be threatened to perform and give more so I could be told it was not good enough.

I would truly not recommend going to work for this company, it was the worst place I have ever worked. The plant employees are great people but the management & culture I would not wish on my worst enemy.

I worked at other companies where you had 3-6 months to learn your position, I was released at 6 months because I was not doing enough or possibly it was not to there level. Not sure they never give me a reason, it was a joke and I was happy to move on. – less

Truly a horrible company to work for.
Finishing Manager (Former Employee), Jackson, TNDecember 29, 2013
Pros: pay well
Cons: constant threatening and extreme work hours
Companies culture is to threaten you with your job immediately if you do not give them instant results. They have a high turnover with employees due to being so willing to fire employees, so if you don't get fired you try to leave before you do. They state they are quality focused but then tell you to relax your quality standards to improve their productivity. – more... They treat hourly and salary associates equally bad and think nothing of forcing you into working seven days a week and 12+hour days. Employees focus on how to survive and blame someone else for deficiencies versus how to do a good job and make things better. Company claims to adhere to lean principles but are only concerned with how deep you can cut labor. Absolutely the worst place I have ever worked and I was happy to leave. – less

Very fast pace job
Cell Nester (Current Employee), Jackson, TNDecember 16, 2013
Pros: helpful co-workers
Cons: short breaks
A typical Day at word is really fast past none stop until break. At Armstrong i learned to stay focused and notice small details and defects in the company product. Management is on task with constant supervising. Co-workers are team players. The hardes part of the job is getting quality over quantity because of the extremly fast pace in so little time. – more... The most enjoyble part about the job is when the day ends productively. – less

Production Worker / Hi-Lo Driver (Former Employee), Macon, GANovember 13, 2013
Pros: learning the process of ceiling tiles, family outing and free lunch for no osha's
A typical day at work for me, was to wear all of my PPE's,to work safely,to make sure that my job was setup correctly and to follow my supervisors instructions. Management was very accessible and had an open door policy. My co-workers were supportive, to make sure that we continue putting out a good quality product. The hardest part of the job, was – more... when we would have a brake down. The most enjoyable part of the job, was knowing that i had a job, learning the process of how ceiling tiles are made, my co-workers and the management team. – less

Challenging, high paced work environment. Managed several projects and developed custom applications across the division.

I learned a well rounded platform of skills to manage projects, work with all levels of the organization, deliver successful results based projects, maintain a positive relationship, to earn the trust and confidence of my customers.

The hardest part of the job was balancing a private life with my work life. Once I figured how to accomplish the balance, I became more effective.

No two days are the same. Productive, enjoyable environment with each day offering new challenges.
Production Technician (Current Employee), Pensacola, FLOctober 11, 2013
Pros: an abundance of overtime that you can work whenever needed; relaxed style of dress, yet conservative; paid weekly; time and half received without having to work 40 hours first., excellent benefits
Cons: breaks are 10-15 and 10 minutes, can't leave the plant for lunch, no actual lunch break, sometimes work 12 or 13 days straight with 2 or 1 day off, working every weekend.
Everyday is different. Depending on what section of a department I was working in would determine my job duties for the day. A two week schedule would be posted showing my primary duties. I could be working independently or with a team of up to five.

I have learned how to be proactive in eliminating potential hazards and problems that could cause problems – more... with production which could cause us to get off schedule with shipping.

The daily task are given and expatations are to complete the job with little to no supervision. Management is there if we need them but they encourage problem resolution and accountability.

My co-workers and I work together to ensure safety. Working together we both/all give input on maintaining quality production items and meeting schedule timelines.

The hardest part of the job was working with mechanical/ electrical issues while continuing to be productive and have quality output. Denying voluntary overtime would be the next hardest part of my job.

The most enjoyable part of my job is being able to work in an environment where everyone has their own ideas but we are able to come together to accomplish a common goal. Also, when I come into work, I don't know what I'll be faced with, but just knowing each day presents new challenges is exciting in itself. – less
