Pros: $$$, great work schedule, great people
Cons: some of the older generation was not welcoming of the newer generation
Great place to work, the elders taught the newer generation about the old way of doing things right. Wages where great, people where great, and where I made my money I met my honey of 6years. Now I am a nurse and still miss that place!

Production Lead (Former Employee), Rocklin, CAJune 8, 2013
Pros: bonuses
Cons: worked the 3rd shift
a typical day was well organized and fast paced, I learn to make fast decisions and take responsibility for my own actions. The hardest part of the day was to re-group after the previous shift. The most enjoyable part of the job was the pay.

My first real job
Warehouse worker (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJune 19, 2012
Pros: learning, fun. family type, paid well, great insurance, dental, union job
Cons: laid off and never recalled
Formica was a great place to work. I started as an order picker for the company and work my way up the ladder quickly to the highest paying job in the warehouse. My final poison with the company was in the treating department where i ran a large machine and used a computer program to keep the machine ruining and coasting laminate on the material.

The Evendale facility is in transition. Relationship between the union and managment is not where it needs to be to be successful
Production Supervisor (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHMarch 22, 2012
Pros: decent compensenation and company vision
Cons: distrust between the union and management, a lot of people not on the same page.
If you like a challenge this is the place to work. There is a lot of work to put in before the company is competitive in the marketplace. Equipment downtime is very high and because of that there is always a need to reallocate resources. Supervisors are pressed pretty hard between upper management and the general workforce.

– June 19, 2012

I worked for the company for years, The union and the management was always in non agreement. My father finally retired for there as well and if i was called back today i would say no not because of the work environment but the problems i have seen in my past with job security. No one can succeed in life when they are being laid off every year.
