    Former Employee - Maintenance Tech in Roanoke Rapids, NC

    I worked at Kennametal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay scale is good, benefits package is pretty much standard throughout the industry. Working conditions are better than most that I have worked in.

    Cons

    The lack of respect from management in the Roanoke Rapids facility is what ultimately lead to me leaving. It was not simply the plant manager, it was the fact that most management is more focused on pushing product out of the back door that they ignore machine conditions. They deceive employees to farther end goals. Walk around the plant at any point in time and you can count 13 machines not running, at a minimum. Mostly, this is blamed on maintenance, the reality is it's mismanagement. If mismanagement is not the problem, then there is something going on that management is not willing to admit to. Either way, it showed me that the "Mutual Respect" policy they have just doesn't apply from the top down. That fact became too taxing for me to continue working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critical thought would demand that we examine "what is your purpose?" If you really want to be on the top of the market, the people making the parts must have high moral and clear focus that they are on the top of your priorities. If not, then it's just another job, just like any other employer. The pay may be better, but if there is no appreciation for the hours worked (other than the pay and a lousy meal from time to time) what is the motivation to keep morale high? Last year, for our Christmas gift thing, they gave everyone a small can of peanuts. Really? Peanuts? What does that say?
    If your focus is to just make money, then I'm sure you'll do fine. You'll gain business and loose business, just like any other company. If you want to keep business and gain more business, than the guys (and girls) on the floor have to be satisfied that they are worth more than the part. They can't just be fed a constant diet of be.
