Former Employee - Production Associate in Bucyrus, OH
Former Employee - Production Associate in Bucyrus, OH
Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

The pay was excellent, until they lowered the scale for new hires. A lot of the associates are friendly and fun to work with...just beware of the gossips!

Cons

Never told (honestly) what is going on...told to meet certain objectives and everything would be ok...we did, and they still closed Distribution Center, eliminating hundreds of jobs

Advice to Management

Suck it up and tell people the honest truth, even if it hurts...we are grown-ups here. Treat us like it if you want respect.

    Former Employee - Machinist in Keene, NH
    Former Employee - Machinist in Keene, NH
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    For the area the pay is ok, with limited skills needed to get in the door.

    Cons

    They used to have a really good tuition reimbursement program, now they have regulated it to the point where managers control who gets it and who doesn't. No room for growth or advancement. Good job, bad career.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions.... Timken as a whole is a good corporation to work for, but the Keene facility needs to be restructured as there is too much middle management doing busy work.


  2. Discouraging, long hours, massive lay-offs

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    One of the largest employers in the area If you have the right degree, there can be multiple career options Decent benefits

    Cons

    Biased management, focus was always on reducing costs with no element of caring about people's lives. Economic downturn served as reason to cut pay, bonus, benefits, and 401k. Just 18 months later they posted biggest profit ever. Amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct an employee opinion survey, determine which managers treat employees well and which managers are causing turnover of good people.
