    I have been working at Blount International full-time

    Pros

    Job Security. Good employee discount.

    Cons

    Too much manditory OT with no end in sight. Managers are only concerned with end of month and end of quarter numbers and not the OT impact on emloyees. Micro managing at its best. HR issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    OT should be dropped and Headcount needs to be increased. This would save the company money and increase their capacity. A plant manager that has experience in running a big facility needs to be brought in to turn around the KC location. The currrent management does not have the knowledge or experience to get this location to the next level. Listen to the employees sugestions.

    I worked at Blount International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There was no upside to the job. There was no structure, The goal for the day was always changed dureing the day.

    Cons

    The company is bleeding out with temp labor. Their communication to mamgement staff is lacking. They have no foundation to build up the comapny. All their management staff was hired after they bought 3 companies and moved to a new building. They had no plan in place on how they wanted to complete a move let alone 3 new acquisitions. After 8 months into the move they still have 0 standard operating procedures and are basically winging it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To build your policies and procedures and manage your people through them.
