Typical day at work was to come in. Watch three machine. One was were the car parts come out at. So I had to make sure the were coming out and not getting stuck.

All about numbers when it benefits them in Houston.
rssr (Former Employee), Houston TxJuly 30, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: rats in management, will take your sales/commission as much as possible.
I worked for Simplex Grinnell in Houston. When they got short on numbers, they cut 15 people immediately. I was a RSSR. My numbers were 2nd in district as RSSR and I got cut because manager had personal vendetta. If you are a commission position, they will find ways to split your sales so they can add to their bottom line. This shop position is in the – more... same department, suppression. They will eventually try to move you to a rssr spot.

They have great benefits, medium pay, but horrible management. With the exception of the new DGM, they are all rats. – less

You will succeed here. Expectations are clear and concise, yet somewhat restricting. Otherwise, lots of employee appreciation and rewards for those who follow the letter.

Production Worker (Former Employee), Marinette, WIJuly 21, 2013
Pros: challenging and fun work, fun coworkers and excellent money.
Cons: long, and sometimes hot, work days!
I loved the challenging work and fun coworkers! I loved working with different machinery and tools! Most enjoyable was the excellent money I made. Hardest was the 12 hour days we sometimes worked four or five days in a row, week after week and hot in the summertime! Very tiring and exhausting!!! A lot of employees got sick because of it.

Pros: bonuses, benefits and compensation
Cons: heavy workloads lots of training meetings
Not an overall bad company, great benefits and incentive programs along with bonuses and profit share. Very healthy competition between departments. Can be demanding at times with work load fluctuations and pressure to keep up with costumer orders especially with quick-turnaround. Nice lounge and break areas, generally friendly co-workers great access – more... to management and HR departments – less

This company is total garbage
Call Center (Current Employee), ColoradoJuly 5, 2013
Pros: benifits
Cons: short breaks, micro managed enviroment, fatties and losers
Co-Workers and management seemed to have come from Gas stations and Wal-Mart jobs. No management in my work group have a college degree. Terrible non-professional work environment. I have not been recognized for Bachelor of Science degree. Skipped over several times for promotions even though I was much more qualified by education and work experience – more... for team lead positions. Hardest part of the the job was coming to work.
Most enjoyable part of the job was leaving each day. This company has 2 time clocks and micro manages your work day down to the minuets. 100% looser work environment. Your business may burn to the ground and Tyco would never know because your phone line was not communicating. Peace of mind for you business. Yeah right! – less
