I worked at KIK Custom Products full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Opportunity to make to decent money (after all the overtime they force on you).
Some decent and hard-working people there on the low end of the ranks.

Cons

Constant last minute mandatory overtime, and followed by being reminded that KIK is an at-will company on a constant basis.
Constant pressure to get entire orders done by the time the company promised it to their customers though being extremely understaffed.
Doesn't value dedicated long-term employees. Seen them fired employees that's has dedicated 10+ years of their life to the company for the smallest mistakes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire sufficient amount of employees to have work orders done in a the time that you promised to customers, and stop wearing down the short-handed employees that's been working under constant pressure.

    An accident waiting to happen and always looking for someone to blame (fire) instead of improving the system

    Pros

    Older experienced people (before KIK) are competent and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a clue. Average below 50% reliability (on a good day). They think that the system can work better by doing the same thing and firing someone once in a while when something goes wrong. You are always wondering if you will somehow be blamed for something that goes wrong and might get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something else in life because you obviously don't know how to manage. They are real good at blaming someone else instead of looking in the mirror.
