    I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time

    Pros

    Experiencing change from traditional manufacturing to lean processes. Excellent mentoring opportunity received from the VP of Operations allowing me to transition from a Quality Tech. to A Quality Manager. Expanding my knowledge of Operations through team process improvement events, Value Stream Mapping Operations processes for example.

    Cons

    The Safety Industry has proven to be difficult industry in this economy, projected growth has been flat and investors expected more from the Mining Industry, for example. Company re-structuring to accommodate financial responsibilities takes it toll.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Finance and Operations need to be flexible and embrace lean cost saving changes rather than layoffs of trained internal customers.

    Pros

    The folks that get paid the least were the nicest.

    Definite health and safety issues at the arizona facility. Mgmt is not managing. Family circle does not acknowledge there are others that work there, better that others attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an office manager.

    Former Employee - Warehouse/Production in Broomfield, CO
    Former Employee - Warehouse/Production in Broomfield, CO

    I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of overtime and a paycheck.
    The benefits aren't bad either.

    Cons

    The company is kind of successful in spite of itself.
    Secretive management.
    Backstabbing supervisors.
    A reactive safety culture, rather than a proactive safety culture -- in an industrial safety company!!!
    Like working in a disgusting, stressful and dangerous cesspool. And that's just the production departments!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Stop allowing supervisors to target those that show them up.
    2) Allow employee innovations.
    3) Stop firing people over trivial BS.
    4) Get your poop in a group!

    Pros

    They give you a paycheck

    Cons

    There are a bunch of people that work with heavy machines that are frequently drunk. The worst part is that the manager in charge of these people knows and does not want anything to do it. You must stuff your nose up someones rear end to have any chance of moving up. I saw the hardest working, and possibly one of the nicest guys get passed up on promotions to others with very poor work ethic just cause they brown nosed the right people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To upper management: Step back and take a look at what is going on. Replacing one or two of your leaders will make a world of difference.

    I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really don't see much in the way of Pros of working for this company, other than it's in a decent location in terms of commute.

    Cons

    Upper Management is unskilled and utilizes mindless power plays to enforce their positions. Lack of communication but plenty of manipulation. People are wantonly fired for little or no reason, creating a lack of trust in employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you are a professional organization, not dramatic theater. Train and groom your employees to stay with the company long-term, or the constant turnover and lack of direction will hamper your growth.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Broomfield, CO

    I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The folks in management have each others noses so far up one another's rear ends that they neglect to notice the other employees.

    Cons

    Everything. Never received product training in over 2 years. Management is basically a boys club that if you're not a part of then you're an outcast. Place was BRUTAL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your nose out of each others rear ends and maybe train your employees on the products they're pushing. Quit trying to keep EVERY THING AND CONVERSATION that takes place in the company behind closed doors. Bad for workplace morale.

    I worked at Checkers Industrial Safety Products

    Pros

    Variety of work, friendliness (if you're in the right group)

    Cons

    Management is not the most experienced, management keeps as much secret as possible about totally random subjects, "job sharing" is common (i.e. people get fired and then their responsibilities get dumped on one person), it feels like a high school with all the drama that goes on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your workers to do their jobs, and stop micromanaging. Don't give your workers zero resources and expect them to do a fantastic job
