I have been working at Ames True Temper

Pros

growing company that has high a large line of quality products at different price points attractive to do-it-yourself consumer as well as professional consumer. health care benefits are outstanding.

Cons

promotion opportunities are somewhat limited, largely due to size of company and no opportunities for transfers betwen companies under the Griffon ownership

Advice to ManagementAdvice

be fair in all treatment to employees, offer more professional opportunites, make available career opportunities within Griffon family of companies.

    Pros

    Busy place! Runs lean so all team members need to perform. Cross functional teams. 4-9 new product projects per season. Regular, controlled change is commonplace.

    Cons

    Tendancy to tunnel vision in product management. Difficulty in bridging the gap selling consumer driven designs to retail chain buyers on a consistent basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Live the bottom-up culture you preach to unleash the creative potential of your people!!

    I worked at Ames True Temper full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The constant changing of jobs , and the freedom to do other tastes besides picking made this an awesome job, the auto wrapper worked 90% of the time, unlike other places where its always manual wrapping! , I loved this job!

    Cons

    An on site death, that was not cleaned up properly @ the trash compactor filled the dock with the stink of rotting human blood and bile for months , the story told by management conflicted , there was suppose to be a pro team to show up and do the cleaning, ended up all of management did the work disposed of the waste (body fluid, parts , ect) in red biohazard bags and then tossed them into the compactor . The conflict was whether the bags that got tossed were Red, Or white, not that they got tossed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never Lie to your employees, and ask for a drug test that day if you offer a promotion, or change of job...
