Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 7 July 2017
Working at this company was a great experience. I learned so much over those years. I was able to make a comfortable living. I learned some of my most valuable skills at this company.
The culture of this company was good. With any company you have different cultures, and my position was in the Personnel Dept. I had the joy of learning all of those cultures, within the different departments throughout the company.
The hardest part of the job was when co-workers don't see eye to eye. Luckily you learn over the years that we are working for a common goal, and you learn to get pass your personal feelings.
The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing all the people who worked for this company. I worked with retirees, current, and former employees. I am a people person, so to be able to interact with all of them was really awesome.
Field Service Representative (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – 28 June 2017
Stressful, dont fall behind, get organised. Dont get thrown in a area where the previous tech didnt care, imposible to recover from that with a customer when you give a estimate that repairs the machine correctly. Also training person needs to be paitiant and available when they say they will be there
Trips, paid travel, lunches, company van
Stressful, no home base, packages with your parts are deliverd to your home
Manufacturing Engineering Manager of Fabrication (Former Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 16 May 2017
Fast pace environment with many new products in the pipeline. NPD was a large part of my job. Working closely in cross functional teams to ensure the best product launch. People from all areas of the company were excellent to work with.
Being part of a growing company with new innovations
Material Handler (Current Employee) – Holland, MI – 30 March 2017
There is room no for advancement opportunities or moving around the company unless you take pay cuts because of a bracketed pay scale they seem to have a quantity over quality mindset and then you seem to always be improving but it makes it harder to do your job
Pay is good for starting out
Health care is high deductable and exspensive, very hot environment, blanket style raise not just based on individual perfornance
Good company to work for. Pretty flexible work hours, pretty flexible with their employees. Decent benefits and insurance.
Packaging (Current Employee) – Holland, MI – 15 March 2017
Tennant has a very good employee base, they also have a very various employees. The hardest part about working there is trying to take everything in depending on what department an individual is working in, some departments are harder than others. The department I work in is packaging, it's pretty good there the people I work with are nice. Tennant also has a good management, they will work with you if you work with them, so let's say if you work multiple jobs or if you are just really busy with like school, and tell them they will help you figure something out with your schedule. The most enjoyable part about my job would have to be the people I work with, they are fun, they are almost always cracking jokes, and almost always have smiles on their faces. I have learned a lot in my two years of working there, and it's not just work stuff it's little life things that some people don't understand or just don't know.
Can listen to music while working, people are nice they are always willing to help out
Sr. Components Launch Engineer (Former Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 8 March 2017
Great teams. Light on process controls and experience but very spirited and accepting of direction. Excellent collaboration, and Management was decentralized very nicely. Lots of excellent, very talented people. People were free to ideate and challenge status quo.
Very Conservative company. Culture has changed over the past few years. A lot of turnover currently
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 22 February 2017
I have enjoyed my almost decade at Tennant. It is not a very social company. There are never any company wide activities. Very flexible with work schedules which was nice. Went through several bouts of layoffs which is never good for morale. I think management could be a lot more involved with their employees. Walk the plant floor etc. I enjoyed my job because I was trusted and didn't need a lot of guidance to be successful. Not a very fast pace Company. Enjoyed doing all of the domestic and International travel and liked planning events the most. Some parts were just repetitious tasks, but that is with any job.
