It's a job, rotating shift makes it hard, opportunity is there if you know how to play the politics.

I have been working at Guardian Industries full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Not sure of what goes on 'behind the scenes' as far as management goes, but I still have a job when other companies are/were laying people off.

Cons

Very political...really doesn't matter how hard you work, people's opinions of you are dependent on other people's opinion of you (accurate or not).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a structured process for training for new positions within the company, a standard, that is applied to everyone.

    Former Employee - Process Engineer in Floreffe, PA

    I worked at Guardian Industries full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible time off, salary and benefits were good for the area.

    Cons

    This list can go on for quite a while but I will try to summarize the top cons: 0 leadership, all managers want to do is NOTHING and expect the business to flourish. A sense of direction and logistics is non-existent. I cannot explain how rude my manager was (all he did was micro-manage, curse, etc.). They have no idea how to DEVELOP their people, take their feedback to better the process and preferences are easily spotted. When people mention that this is an "old boys club" they are not mistaken. It is a complete waste of time, effort and happiness to work for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please revamp the whole scenario in the Floreffe site, it is absolutely depressing to see and live in those conditions day in and day out.

    Pros

    Good benefit package and 401K. Lots of fodd and swag.

    Cons

    Leadership is a joke, and the vision is terrible. Spend LESS money on shirts and more on your your employees and future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring More people to do the same job is not fruitful.
