Team Member (Former Employee), Tuskegee, ALApril 18, 2014
Pros: learned new skills and made new connections in the engineering world
Cons: time consuming
This was a group project in which three students including myself were selected to work a project to create a heating and cooling chamber to test John Deere thermostats. The hardest part of the project was doing all of the research in order to create the specs needed to create the chamber. The most enjoyable part of the project was seeing everything – more... come together and presenting the project to some John Deere representatives that aided us throughout the entire process. – less

A steady sourse of income
Industrial pipefitter (Current Employee), Horicon, WIMarch 31, 2014
Pros: uniforms health insurance
Cons: upper management using the "bull in the woods" style of management
Not a bad place to work but there can be long hours during main production season. Skilled workers are underpaid, management seeks assemblers and welders and doesn't seam to care about skilled trades that is why they can't fill all there openings

Great company
Quality Engineer (Former Employee), IowaFebruary 11, 2014
Pros: benefits, pay, management
Cons: politics, set in your role
This is a great company to work for, excellent pay, benefits, advancement opportunity. It is a large company, so you will wear less 'hats' and there is definitely more tape that you need to navigate through to get things accomplished. Some people may say it is a very political environment, but in reality it just requires a lot of teamwork and getting – more... along with others will help you go way farther than trying to do it all by yourself. – less

Fast hard working environment with freedom.
Forklift Operator (Current Employee), Milan, ILJanuary 30, 2014
Pros: breaks every 2 hours
Cons: being supplemental, no rights as a supplemental
A day at work can be tough and it can be easy. Most days there is always something to do and other days you have to look for something to do. Keeping a steady pace makes a night go quick. I've learned how to operate a Drexel forklift, use air powered tools, and simple carpentry. The management of the warehouse was mostly organized but the unfair judgment – more... between supplemental and core workers is noticeable. Co-workers at the warehouse are easy to get along with. Treat others the way you want to be treated. The hardest part about my job is being a supplemental because you don't have many rights even when you pay union dues. The best part about my job is the freedom I get in the warehouse. – less
