    SKF, excellent company to work for

    Machine Operator Level Five (Former Employee)
    Flowery Branch, GA

    ProsSalaried employees are compensated time and a half for working over time. Excellent company benefits. Variety of health plans to choose from. Two weeks vacation after first year, three weeks after five years, four weeks after ten years. Two week shut down in July. Christmas shut down is around nine days. Holiday pay for all major holidays.

    ConsJob training lacks structure. Mandatory over time can make for long days and weeks. Subject to be laid off when economy slows. I was laid off three times in eleven years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdd more structure to training. Give longer breaks.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A little mismanaged

    Reliability (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits. They have good benefits like most big companies.

    ConsMismanagement. Prepare yourself for micromanagement hell. Prepare yourself to have secretaries in other states telling you that you and the customer are wrong.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix your micromanagement problem. Let area managers manage and team members work without being hassled all day by ladies who have no idea what they are talking about.

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

    Overall a good place to work

    Machine Operator (Current Employee)
    Flowery Branch, GA

    ProsGood pay and benefits compared to most other manufacturing jobs out there
    pretty laid back
    work is not hard at all, just have to be a thinker
    good employee retention, many workers are career employees.
    Pretty organized company

    Conslots of hours during the busy times of the year
    10+ year waiting list if you want to work dayshift
    can get pretty boring
    difficult to get hired without a college education, working for a year or two as a temp, or having family that works there.
    very dependent on economy

    Advice to Senior Managementlisten to your employees more often

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
