Utility operator (Former Employee), Keene, nhJuly 28, 2014
Pros: paid breaks, good schedule, nice people to work for
Cons: job security, short breaks, sometimes there was a lot of work then no work
Working at timken pretty much was a good time while I was there. I started out sandblasting and deburring parts. Then I was transferred to a different department (it was okay but not great). Got laid off in 2012.

Not a good place to work
steel worker (Current Employee), Canton, OHJune 30, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits are good
Cons: swing shift, have to work weekends and holidays, no time off
Not good to be an hourly employee here. They make you work swing shift even though they could get by with straight shifts. Research shows working swing shift will take about 7yrs off a persons life so less pension they have to pay. You will work all holidays except Christmas day. You will work most weekends. They claim to be diverse but in 4 departments – more... I was in all the bosses were white males. No females. No minorities. Only look into this place if you want to have no life and be treated like a prisoner. – less

Nothing stays the same
AUDITOR II (Current Employee), Canton, OhioJune 7, 2014
Pros: new faces and new challeges daily
Cons: too little family life
The atmosphere is fairly relaxed. I have learned a great deal about the importance of controls within a company. This company is very driven about controls and we are very much supported by the top management It is much easier to go out in the field and do a great job for the company when you have the support by management. I enjoy working with my co-workers. – more... We have a great group of individuals in the Audit Department. That is important since we could travel together for long time periods of time together. The hardest part of my job is being away from my family so often but it is also a blessing to come home. The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting so many different people all over the world. I'm always learning and my job is always different. The tests may be the same but how I get the results may not be the same. – less

Great learning experiences, sound management.
Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee), Canton, OHJune 3, 2014
Pros: great projects, helpfull associates and management.
Cons: on-call after hours and low pay comparisions.
I was able to experience some great projects while at The Timken Company; from bearings to steel, to HR and payroll. The management was both exacting and supportive. They expected a lot, but they also supported your needs. Their training for their IT associates was excellent and was very individualized. The training period typically lasted 6 month to – more... 9 months. While I finished in 3 months, I was ready for my selection of departments. After training I was provided choices of which department to support. Kudos to them for the great training and experience of awesome projects! The most difficult part of my career there was supporting IT systems requiring on-call after hours and long weekends. – less

Supervisor Security / Fire (Current Employee), Corporate OfficesMay 2, 2014
Pros: worked with a lot of respectful associates
Cons: many meetings that ran over weekly
I was fortunate enough to have a shift that was very respectful. My manager would take the time out of her busy schedule and teach me the budget and how to save money during this process. I will forever be greatful for her and her time.

My 33 years of service has been rewarding and have been rewarded
also.

Analyst
analyst (Current Employee), Canton, OHApril 24, 2014
Pros: hours, pay, benefits
Cons: you worked until your job was done often taking work home, micromanaged, nepotism
Management sucks. Pay is good. Benefits and hours aren't that bad. Lack of fairness from employee to employee. What is Ok for one person isn't OK for another. Micromanaged all day long. Nepotism in full effect- people got jobs bc of who they knew and not educational background and experience. Felt bad for those who were qualified. Manager played favorites, – more... but I guess you can have these instances at any place of employment. – less
