I have been working at Coleman Cable full-time (More than a year)
Their swing shifts are nice, as well as company incentives to arrive on time. Pay is decent.
Upper management don't listen to their employees. Your position is safe depending upon who you know. Minorities don't have a chance with this company. They are expanding and there is subject to being more positions available but again its all in who you know. Southwire is taking over but some of the same Coleman management still exist.. A lot of favoritism. Everything concerning everyone is political. No opportunity for advancement.
Advice to Management
Stop playing favorites!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Coleman Cable (Waukegan, IL) in November 2011.
Very easy. I knew I had the job on the first go round. There were two people who mainly interviewed me. I liked them both immediately and would have liked that they were my bosses for a longer period of time. The whole intrview took 2 hours and I had a job offer the next week.
