    I have been working at Afc Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked in the office for over 6 years. I believe the company is growing. Management works hard to sustain the business, resolve any issues that arise, and work to keep the business growing, which with today's large manufacturing competition with China is not an easy task. Over the last few years I've noticed an increase of over 25% in the number of employees. While there is still room for improvement, I enjoy working here and I see the hard work that management puts in. It is very easy for anyone to criticize the work of others, and you can never satisfy everyone, but I feel that the company does a great job and treats us, the employees, well. Management works hard to keep the company growing and the employees satisfied, which is hard work and often works more than 70 hours a week to do so. My paycheck is always on time, as is everyone else's, I am treated with respect as an employee, and it is an overall positive working environment. I wish the company employees all the best, and hope for continued growth, happiness, and hard work in what we do daily.

    Cons

    Very tight work space, especially in the manufacturing department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only advice to management, in terms of improvement, is to fix/improve the actual work space to ensure a more comfortable work condition.

    I worked at Afc Industries full-time

    Pros

    Wondering how they stay in business with this kind of management.

    Cons

    I went there for an interview because it was around my area. First, don't let the fancy website fool you. This place is a dump. It's like a junk yard, equipment and products were randomly placed near the entrance, stuff or garbage were everywhere in the "yard". The office was like a small house that converted into a "office". The "Boss" that interview me was rude and didn't bother to spent time learn more about the person he was interviewing. Save your time and look else where, Don't bother to go. You will be disappointed for sure. No wonder they always hiring.

    I have been working at Afc Industries full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are really great.
    You may even get an entire hour for lunch most days.

    Cons

    - As great as co-workers are, no one is given the opportunity or freedom to be even greater.
    - Micro-management of employees. Cameras and microphones everywhere.
    - Senior management does not treat employees well at all. Nothing is ever enough, no matter how much you produce. Many employees get overloaded with work, while others come and go as they please.

    THIS PLACE IS TOXIC, UNHEALTHY, UNSAFE UNSANITARY!

    The office looks (and smells) like it has not been cleaned in over 5 years. It definitely has not been cleaned at all in several months. GAS STATION bathrooms are cleaner than the employee bathrooms. If you DO decide to apply for a job here, make sure you ask to use the restroom before your interview. There is dirt, dust and what looks suspiciously like black mold throughout the facility. People get sick here, lots of complaints of nose and throat issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The way to motivate employees is not to constantly beat them down without any praise for a job well done, and micro-manage every second of their shift. The only reward for someone who produces is to get more and more work dumped on them until they are so overloaded there is no way they can keep up.

    Pros

    The employees are nice but other than that their are no pros.

    Cons

    Productions looks like a third world country. Management cannot even run their own business properly. Work hard for very little pay. Management does not even respect their own employees. No opportunity for growth and you have no future with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire your vice president and you will see how the company will perform after. Respect your employees because they are the ones who keeps your business running.

    Pros

    Fast-paced work environment where results are rewarded and management is open to change that demonstrates results. Technically talented team that works on a diverse array of projects that offer great work experience.

    Fast-paced work environment is not for everyone but hard work and responsibility are rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adhering to current trajectory with patience and steadfastness will accelerate growth.

    The office staff are wonderful, great people to work with. Diligent and hard-working employees get recognized and rewarded.

    Pros

    The people are nice, it is a room for growth if you’re working hard.Company Using the new technology and new equipment. . I’m working as a metal fabricator more then 10 years and really like to work here. About 25% of all people here working more then 10 years, even some of them from the beginning- almost 20 years. The company is growing and has a future.

    Cons

    Very little space for work. The building needs improvements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has to create more team work and improve recognition of good employees.
