    Pros

    The atmosphere gets the jobs done, but the management will make or break you if your supervisor doesn't like you.

    Cons

    There are cliques here, and if you don't agree with how the supervisor shows favoritism, then you are next on the chopping block.

    Advice to Management

    If expect to keep great employees, then you should weed out the bad supervisors there.

    Pros

    Nothing about this company is positive

    Cons

    Very low pay for the industry, long hours, no work life balance. Management does not care about employees personal lives regardless of the magnitude. Extra work is added to give salaried employees bonuses while the actual laborers make pennies. Barely enough pay to survive. This company is a joke and I can't wait to quit. Plenty of lying and favoritism to go around.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    I worked at Dakkota Integrated systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The work is fairly easy. Not much thought required. OT is available with seniority. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Always start at the same time in the morning, but you do not always leave at the same time. Could be a four hour day or a twelve hour day depending on the customer needs and if the computers/machines work properly. Can be physically demanding and the pay is a little low for the toll your body takes. Also is a union job so the are several drawbacks that go with that

    Advice to Management

    Fix your machines

    I worked at Dakkota Integrated systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of overtime. You do learn a variety of skills.

    Cons

    I have worked in Assembly and Warehousing for over 20 years. This place is a joke. The Pay is too low for hi lo skills. They let employee's get away with sleeping on the job. Team leaders' are dictators.(Favoritism) They take away lunch breaks for punishment. Very unsafe workplace. The Safety supervisor is a lazy joke. Management makes up policy rules as they wish. Minority specified hiring-A person should be hired for their skills. NOT ethnic background, sex or color. Then HR gets a large bonus check for the numbers. While the employees who actually do the hard work barley makes enough to live on.I have watched employees get off work leave the job for several hours and return to punch out. Management is aware of this. They get paid off off by these employees.

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters should look into this. That warehouse has a lot of potential, but they need to clean house and remove these problems.

    Pros

    Leadership roles are easy to obtain all you need is a strong work ethic mentality.

    Cons

    The heavy work loads, hardly anytime for a single life. I would say it can be a family man dream job.

    Advice to Management

    Management can be very fair with great workers in crisis situations.
