Nice place They have company picnics, and christmas party s
Waterspider (Current Employee), Batesville, MSAugust 29, 2012
Pros: they opened up a wellness center so we could go to the doctor without cost to us.
Cons: we only get 2 ten minute breaks.
Its hard work, but your co workers are friendly. You can talk to management anytime and are also friendly. I have been taught a lot about wood and how to use different saws and sanders. The hardest part is picking up the heavy oak panels to sand.

Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee), Batesville, INAugust 22, 2012
Pros: excellent health care benefits, book club, quarterly (about) social gatherings
Rarely was there a "long" day at Batesville Casket! There was always plenty to keep me busy. Our IT department (internally known as BIS) juggled many projects to meet the strategic initiatives of the company and to provide excellent production support for our software. I was truly blessed to have worked with so many remarkable people. All displayed – more... a terrific work ethic and true caring for one another. The hardest part of working there was the changing priorities (unavoidable in today's business environment). The most enjoyable part was the opportunity to work on challenging projects. I have learned so much by being open to projects outside my comfort zone. I believe that the critical role of good requirements is the most important thing I have learned. – less

CNC Operator/Team Leader (Former Employee), Batesville, MSJuly 3, 2012
Pros: free lunches and employee appreciation days, good ins and benefits
Cons: favortism
One of my favorite places of employment and I do miss it and would go back to work there in a heart beat. A typical day would be to start out with a brief meeting so that employees would know what was going on in the company and what to expect for the day. I learned a lot about team work and communication with others and how impotant that was and also – more... learned a lot about the product and how and why you need to stay competitive. I do however think that management needs to work a little more on how they handled certain situtations and communication with employees and favortism. My co-workers was some of the best people I have ever worked with, willing to help others and very respectful to others. The hardest part of the job was being looked over for advancement and knowing their mind was made up before a posting was posted and having to leave there was extremely hard for me. The most enjoyable part of the job was just being part of the company overall and just knowing I was a part of producing some of the best caskets in the world and the special days they had just for employees and showing appreciation for the work you did as a whole. – less

Finish Assembler (Former Employee), Batesville, INJune 26, 2012
Pros: safe environment mind set to work in.
Cons: communication between higher level management and factory employees.
Process caskets by taking a raw unfinshed casket from another part of factory via transport line . Prepare casket for further finishing by priming, brushingand scuffing down casket in an assembly line atmosphere. Proceed to paint casket predetermined color, shade, and topcoat. Inspect, fix, repair, and send finished product to next deptartment. Usually – more... just do one or multple of these things through out shift. Co-workers try to get along so it can be a better productive atmoshpere. Communication seem better between employees than management and employees. – less
