    I worked at Milbank Manufacturing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    people, benefits, union, salary. I loved this job and probably could get hired back but people leaving this Company are very slim, I would work here again.

    Cons

    to long point system to have to go through only gives you 35 points to be absent in a 90 day period I was there for a year almost was hired full time n less than a month I was 10 minutes late and was terminated with just a few weeks to go I do understand the reason for the point system and agree with it 100%. When I was terminated the Union agreed with me and was going to try and change the period of time or allow you more points.

    Advice to Management

    Great HR Manager at this company very understanding and caring people in the office

    I have been working at Milbank Manufacturing full-time

    Pros

    Milbank is transforming itself from a sleepy little one-trick-pony company into a growing, diversified, and innovative enterprise. The executive team is committed to developing new technology to insure its future success and to lean in order to reduce rework and frustration. Pay is good, benefits are solid, and the leadership team is improving with each new individual they hire. The company has recieved numerous awards in the KC area - Champions of Business (3 years in a row), Impact Technology Award, and CFO of the Year award.

    Cons

    Some key leaders have only worked at one place - Milbank, so sometimes there is a pretty narrow, risk-adverse view of the world. I see signs that this is changing.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course in terms of new technology and new businesses.

    I have been working at Milbank Manufacturing full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Leadership is very progressive. They are taking the company into new markets with new technologies. Lean manufacturing has transformed the company.

    Cons

    Housing industry is still very weak. Keeps a lot of pressure on sales to maintain growth expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. Great things are happening and we need to make sure we keep out number one position in the industry.

    I worked at Milbank Manufacturing full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great environment to work in along with great benefits. The workers always seem to help each other out and are always offering a helping hand. It was nice always doing different jobs throughout the plant which would keep the job interesting.

    Cons

    Sometimes when there is a problem management would take some time to work out the problem. Along with the work being fast paced at times and the extreme heat in the plant would make for long shifts at times. Also, the dirty work environment would leave you feeling real dirty at the end of the shift that would leave you really looking forward to getting home and into the shower.

    I have been working at Milbank Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This Company helped me see the value of being self employed. There are 0 pros to working at this place!

    Cons

    I would not purchase products from this place because they have been known to explode! injuring anyone crazy enough to approach this product. They are currently being sued for allowing a female employee to endure sexual advances from a supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the harassment before one of those employees goes postal inside that plant. Its crazy companies like this that get innocent workers killed! every day.

    I worked at Milbank Manufacturing full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working at this place. If you can take being yelled at by a lead person in front of people or called little girl and being watched and screamed at like a five year old kid then it might work for you. RUN,RUN,RUN away from this job and don't look back.

    Cons

    This is a place that is allowing workers to be verbally and sexually harassed on the job. Complaints go on and are ignored. workers know if they talk to management it will be ignored and you will get harassed! They are currently in a lawsuit for letting a female worker get harassed sexually for a long time. She ended up walking off this job.

    Advice to Management

    Milbank is responsible for the actions of the lead workers and they should listen to all the employees that try to tell them what is going on inside glass door to prevent lawsuits from lead workers stepping in and doing Supervisors jobs the leads need to be working alongside the workers. Assembling meters a supervisor should be in each spot with a desk next to the lead worker to prevent lawsuits from leads crossing the line. most employees last 2 or 3 years high turn over It has recently been worse.
