    I have been working at ES Robbins full-time

    Pros

    They have good benefits work 8 hours a day off weekend its not a high stress job.

    Cons

    with no overtime the pay could be better and alot of the times you will be working alone

    Advice to Management

    pay maintenance more because you dont want a large turn over in maintenance its to hard to train them and saves money in the long run.

    Pros

    If you can't find a job they will hire you because nobody wants to work there. If you're local just ask around!

    Cons

    Owner the company is so old has no clue what's going on! One guy runs company as a micro manager! Every call is made by this one man. You don't get along with him you're fired! Upper management in every department is a joke! HR had not an ideal about anything! CFO takes orders not from owner! Has a lawyer that no one can stand to be around!

    Advice to Management

    All upper management step down or at least remove the one big problem. There will never be growing company until the problem is removed!

    I worked at ES Robbins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the workers are very nice and very friendly when I started there. While training and learning new lines and machines the operators took time to help the newer or new hires out because it can get frustrating and during certain times dangerous.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE PAY without the chance of getting on with the company. I worked there about 6 months and saw around 30 new hires come and go. I, for the most part, enjoyed working there but who can survive off of $7.50 an hour with children.

    Advice to Management

    I wish it could have worked out differently because i enjoyed working very hard with the other employees but considering the pay, it was not worth the headache. Good Luck guys ...

    I have been working at ES Robbins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most products are of decent quality; unfortunately most of those are sourced from other domestic and Chinese manufacturers. Health care plan is competitive for the area.

    Cons

    Senior management, specifically the owner and CFO, are delusional and will take the company into bankruptcy rather than make meaningful changes. It is not unusual for most employees to go 3 - 5 years between pay raises (most of us have to stay here because employment options are limited in NW Alabama). The company struggles to make money but only because the owner spends a ridiculous amount of company money on his personal interests including horse racing, polo, and private jets.

    Advice to Management

    Convince the owner to walk away and let the few good people remaining to do their jobs before they shut the doors and put all of us out of work.
