Good benefits and culture.
WELDER (Former Employee) –  Golden Valley, MN16 May 2017
I enjoyed working at Tennant. Leads and Supervisors were good, but compensation was low with extremely high production standards. If a better balance between the two could be found, it would be ideal.

Compensation: pay and benefits are competitive. Culture is changing - less loyalty to employees and more bottom line focused. Some areas better than others.

Material Handler (Current Employee) –  Holland, MI30 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
Pros
Pay is good for starting out
Cons
Health care is high deductable and exspensive, very hot environment, blanket style raise not just based on individual perfornance

Area Service Manager (Former Employee) –  PA20 March 2017
The company is phasing into a new culture of running the business. It is more data based than personal experiences and local involvement. The business is being driven more from the corporate level.

Good company to work for. Pretty flexible work hours, pretty flexible with their employees. Decent benefits and insurance.
Packaging (Current Employee) –  Holland, MI15 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.
Pros
Can listen to music while working, people are nice they are always willing to help out
Cons
Short break, one break, can't leave for lunch

Very Conservative company. Culture has changed over the past few years. A lot of turnover currently
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Golden Valley, MN22 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.
Pros
Flexible on work schedules
Cons
Small amount of holidays, not very social

Dont work there
Field Service Technician/Representative (Former Employee) –  Melrose, MA2 August 2016
I worked for this company for many years and tried moving up on the career latter but unless you kiss the bosses behind you have no chance. Through the years it has become a money hungry company that forgot about the employee by cutting benefits and treating you with total disrespect. There is no support for field employees and management will bury you and leave you out to dry. I do miss the customers that I became good friends with thru out the years.
Pros
Make good friends
Cons
Non-employee friendly company

Hot , fast paced
Welder (Former Employee) –  Golden Valley, MN22 April 2016
Fast paced production, hot , short breaks. Alot of senior employees with very little respect and seems to have more authority over management. It's a numbers game every day and no appreciation for good skilled workers unless your a professional a** kisser. No advancement opportunities, with lots of favoritism on production floor. Scheduling is not flexible , pay is decent, pto is a joke, supervisors are cool but have no real knowledge, leads have knowledge but need better communication skills.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Short breaks, hot.

great for the end-user, not as great for the employee
Sr Linux/Unix Administrator (Current Employee) –  Minneapolis, MN20 April 2016
My time with this company was heavily based on hitting a set number of dials each day and was overseen by a outstandingly difficult manager who is no longer with the company, but was the catalyst for myself and many others to seek employment elsewhere.

My recollection is that selling this product while being responsible for account management, accounts payable and more was a heavy burden that made it difficult to give any one task the attention it deserved.

This is probably a job best suited for someone straight out of college who needs to cut their teeth in tech sales.
Pros
ree snacks and beverages
Cons
micro-management

Corperate company creates a hostile work enviroment
Field Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MN16 March 2016
Work is alright as a Field Service Representative you don't hear from your manager until something goes wrong. Since your working on your own you don't know about all changes that are happening until you make a mistake. When a mistake happens they are to quick to come to conclusions and than they fire the employee. The is no corrective training as there was any in the first place. Managers will pick fights with employees. There is no customer service anymore as its all about the numbers. All the top service director says is get on the train before it leaves.
Pros
company vehcile, flex able schedule
Cons
low moral, no management
