    I have been working at Nordyne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    See other reviews. This is a follow up.

    Cons

    Depressing to watch the Nortek corporate bigwigs making millions while we in the trenches are getting further and further behind. We are not even keeping up with the cost of living, but the directors keep cashing in the stocks that they keep giving themselves at zero cost.

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

    Pros

    The only good thing about working there was the learning experience i got from working there. I learned a lot about shipping and recieving.

    Cons

    The bad part about this company was the mangement. They were not concerned about job performance they are only concerned about how much you are liked by mangement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the people that are making you your money!!!

    I have been working at Nordyne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ability to work as many hours that you can handle. Some salaried employees are expected to work 35, some have the demand to work 50+.

    Cons

    Don't even think about getting promoted, it's an inbred society there. They just keep promoting the manager and make up some ridiculous titles for them. What company has a director for 2 employees??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up and sell the place already,

    I have been working at Nordyne full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of great co-workers. Always challenging (in a good way). As much responsibility as you want. Because of high turnover, my status of a long timer with experience increases quickly.

    Cons

    Benefits keep getting crappier every year. Have had no raises, bonuses or even a cost of living increase in years. Business is tied to new housing starts (a lagging economic indicator). Very high turn over in the last year. Expect it to get worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look around. There's a reason that your highly talented, skilled and experienced people are leaving. You better fix it!

    Pros

    You are able to take on as much responsibility as you want.

    Cons

    Management does give you the room to take on responsibility, but does not support you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a bunch of dedicated employees, take a look around and recognize it.

    I worked at Nordyne

    Pros

    Good Pay; People nice to work with; task were not easy but were not hard either; get 3 days off at times you work alot.

    Cons

    Long hours; odd shifts; felt like you were a robot all day doing the same job for 12 hours straight; standing all day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the day be a 8 hour shift, not 12 hours with 2--ten minute breaks and a measly 30-minute lunch.
