Customer Service (Former Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 29 January 2018
You take about 70 calls a day. They have an AWESOME training program for new customer service reps. You have access to all the thing you need. Tec support is available by phone and there are wonderful tec docs on line.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – 16 February 2018
Management plays favorites and will give their favorite employees advancement before an employee with more experience and better work ethic. I worked very hard for this company and was looked over every time for other employees that didn't do half the work I did.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Golden Valley, MN – 4 January 2018
Hard to get time off. High turn overs. Bad leadership. You can never advance. I tried 3 times and I didn't get the position and it wasn't because of my performance. They will use you if you are good until you can't take it it more. They will never advance you.
Environmental, Health and Safety Specialist (Current Employee) – Holland, MI 49424 – 21 December 2017
Great company to work for. Collaborative environment. Work is rewarding and management appreciates your efforts. Hardest part for me is the drive (very long) and the most enjoyable is improving company metrics
Welder (Current Employee) – Lilac Drive – 6 December 2017
I'm in welding and they seem to hire a lot of weld school and in experienced welders.These people tend to think they know everything and they don,t.They are hired because they can be paid a much lower rate.Also some of the older people that have been there for yrs aren't getting raises and aren't moving up but other people with less knowledge are.Not enough rules are in writing.Health ins.is too expensive!
Machinist (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – 16 October 2017
The other employee's in your department were happy to help as long as it was in their knowledge of what it is that needed to be fixed. The management was great they made sure you had the required documents/prints so that the correct jobs would go out.
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Holland, MI – 1 October 2017
It was an okay job but not made for a lot of women. The work was heavy and always the same. The company made you work to get time for vacation. It was not easy to take time off when you had no time accumulated if you just started.
It's ok.. so long as you stay away from management/supervisors

When I first started Tennant, it was a great place to work! There were lots of employees with over 25+ years experience, and that says something about a place. Fast forward to now, it's just a numbers game and a continuous revolving door of employees in and out because of the culture/moral. Poorly managed. However, there are still some great people that work there.
excellent salary if you can put up with management
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.
