    I have been working at Behr GmbH & Co. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    pretty good pay, Insurance is`nt the best but we still have it, Mostly friendly co-workers and supervisors, Been their 27 years and most days are and were good ones.My dad helped get me on through preferential hiring so it brought me closer to him for doing that for me. Some jobs in the plant are`nt so good but most are doable.

    Cons

    There is ONE supervisor who i had for 18 months who would absolutely harass and breath down every ones neck for no good reason.He would call you into the office or write you up and then tell the coordinator all about it. He had a personal file in his office where he kept lists of negative info about everyone in the dept and it was all so petty that the lists were very long, and he would show people the list and tell them how bad he could make them look if he were`nt such a nice guy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most all of my supervisors have been wonderful. I think management does an excellent job and care very much about Behr and the people who work there. My advice is from what I`ve seen is just to keep doing what you`re doing.

    Pros

    Very professional, Strong Technical Expertise, great people

    Cons

    Sometimes too focused internally losing sight of the market resulting in business loss. However, management has learned to improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The products Behr makes are price takers. Hence, rather than a cost plus approach to new business, it would be better to consider a market price driven product design.
