    Long time employee

    Leadership (Current Employee)
    Shelbyville, IN

    ProsGreat company with and if ever the sales group is aligned with the operations team the sky is the limit with this company. The growth potential can actually be overwhelming at times.

    ConsQuality and manufacturing are not working together as a team. Responsibilities are not clearly defined and these gray areas overload the manufacturing teams from being able to effectively improve quality and productivity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDefine, align, and hold departments accountable once clear responsibilities are communicated.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    just started

    Die Caster (Current Employee)
    Shelbyville, IN

    ProsThe job seems pretty solid so far. I have been treated with respect and there is an eagerness to teach me the right way to do things.The company has an on site medical clinic that is free of charge to its associate workers thru the week and they allow you to go to the local area med check clinic they have a contract with on Saturdays free of charge.This company seems to really value their employees and the local area.

    ConsThe pay seems low for what I am doing but no one starts out at the top. Long hours seems to be the norm.Even tho there are some cons they dont over shadow the pro's!

    Advice to Senior ManagementHaven't been there long enough to advise

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Surprisingly stable in a tough economy...

    Master Finisher (Former Employee)
    Shelbyville, IN

    Pros* A stable workplace despite the financial woes of the automotive industry.
    * Lots of opportunities to move up in the company.
    * Great insurance/benefits packages.
    * The most paid holidays out of any factory in the area. (Includes two 1 week shut-downs for 4th of July & Christmas)
    * Employees are always informed on the company's status thanks to quarterly meetings.
    * Employees are monetarily rewarded for their cost saving ideas that are implemented.

    Cons* Wages are kinda low for the type of work, and increases are pretty minimal.
    * Getting on 1st shift is virtually impossible in popular departments.
    * Working environment can be physically dangerous and hazardous to your health

    Advice to Senior ManagementI encourage management to continue to pursue breakthrough technologies in the automotive industry to entice major automobile makers to trust Ryobi with their business. Also, continue to treat employees with respect, and always listen to their ideas.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Frustrating yet wonderful

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe "worker bees" are wonderful. Some of the engineers are great also. The hourly employees are generous and loving of one another

    ConsHourly employees are treated poorly compared to salary employees. There is also not much advancement for women at the company. I do took over the same job an "engineer" was doing and don't get compensated half of what he did. He also refused to do specialized paperwork for a customer that I am now doing. Very frustrating

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake people responsible for their mistakes. Treat people the way you would want to be treate

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
