Mismanaged misses the Target! Tempe Factory Specific!

Production Supervisor (Former Employee)
Tempe, AZ

I worked at Jabil full-time for more than a year

ProsPeople - Very Diverse group of people, who would do most anything to get the job done. Great and talented group.

ConsI was part of a Team who was really starting to see positive changes on how the people were treated and to focus on quality, we were seeing results... just to see the upper mgmt. group pull the rug out from underneath us....Soon after, they announced the plant was closing.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo late for that group.

Learned a lot but do not get attached...

SCDM (Former Employee)
Saint Petersburg, FL

I worked at Jabil full-time

ProsGood job, travelled a lot when your business unit is segmented across the globe

ConsYOU ARE A NUMBER... doesn't matter who you are..eventually you will get laid off. Went through 23 rounds in 16 years before my turn came. we were 52 getting the pink slip and all had long tenure at the company. This is the way Jabil usually saves money...

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing they can do.. this is Jabil's long time policy

The experience was not at all what I expected.

Memphis, TN

I worked at Jabil full-time for less than a year

ProsYou get to wear your very casual clothes.

ConsConstantly having security escort people out due to termination and people are always quitting.

There is a bonus program in place but employees never get it.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should keep the people in place that know how things should be done and stop hiring the friends and family members who are running the company into the ground.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
