Industrial Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHJuly 3, 2014
Pros: good employee's
Cons: management is lost
Super weak union, might as we'll be company sponsored. In 23 years needed union help once. Was told too bad, would not even return my calls. When I started there in the 80's was an excellent workplace. Has slowly gone downhill after numerous buyouts, 2 and 3 tier wages etc. if offered my job back today would say no!

Maintenance Electrician (Former Employee), Evendale, OHAugust 8, 2013
Pros: rewards for jobs well done.

Meeting at beginning of shift for carryover work and/or company news was very incomplete part of the time. On call for machine breakdowns and assigned tasks and/or P.M.s. Some production worker sabotage mostly at beginning and/or end of shift.
I learned a lot about T.S. with PLCs and a little about unions. Stayed very proficient at troubleshooting, ect.
Management very strict and trigger happy.
Co-workers were great.
Sabotage
Gratification of fixing the machine and extra electrical work.

Pros: learning, fun. family type, paid well, great insurance, dental, union job

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.
