    I worked at Graco as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you get a full-time, you can stay as long as you want. Most people here have been here for at least 10 years.

    Cons

    Still operates as a small company. Career growth opportunities are essentially non-existent. Any lean operations that they may observe stops when you leave the production floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize you need more man power in most departments.

    I worked at Graco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with most of my co-workers.
    vacation never got denied.
    benefits were good, but before I left it seemed like those were getting ready to go down the drain too.

    Cons

    When I started working here it seemed like a good place to work... for the first few weeks. It became apparent to me very quickly that I was not going to be able to expand my knowledge base or get recognition for my work while being employed here. I left this company because I was tired of being held back. It's too bad because I really liked the location.

    The pay is mediocre, and it depends on what position you take. If you are looking at a salaried engineering job you will be under paid and work a lot. If you are someone with no education looking for an unskilled job then this might just be the place to work.

    Not the most exciting place to work, but the pay is decent.

    I have been working at Graco

    Pros

    Pay was decent, work-life balance was usually ok.

    Cons

    Not very challenging as far as engineering goes. No room for advancement as an engineer -- seemed like people either moved into management or left the company.
