    I have been working at MetoKote full-time

    Pros

    I read through all of the previous reviews. All i saw was a lot of entitled disgruntled employees pointing fingers. "Management", doesn't control the laziness of temps but they do encourage and reward good ones. This is a company that hires on for a very respectable rate inside the plants. I've work many a factory jobs (Bentler, Foamcraft, Wabash, Lippert, KIK, etc) and none of them started over $10/hr with worse conditions and riskier jobs. MetoKote starts with higher pay and better benefits.

    "MetoKote needs to take care of new employee's they are the future of the company." It would be insane to give a new, untested, employee bonuses. Far to many come, get a paycheck, and leave. This is entitlement at it's worst, prove your value before you expect to be rewarded. MetoKote does have great programs in place. You can earn an additional week of paid vacation every year just by having good attendance. Additionally, MetoKotes hourly bonus plan is, "To qualify you must be active, full-time employee on the last day of the bonus period." New employees are eligible unless they have grossly neglected to perform their duties.

    "Ability to move up if you are the right color/gender." The implication of racism and sexism is unfounded. I can quickly look around and see Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, Russian, Male, and Female all in leadership positions. Those who work hard advance, those who don't stay put.

    Cons

    Have to cross the railroad tracks to get to work. and 3 lights! they are sometimes red.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MetoKote (Lima, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was called by HR first and screened. Then i had a sit down interview with both members of the department i was applying to. Surprisingly the HR phone screen asked more technical questions than the in person departmental interview. They were really eager to hire new graduates.
