Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Good Pay. Many Hours. Ability to advance quickly. They will get your forklift certified if you show promise. Hire through Temp agency. Relatively easy work.

Cons

Dismal environment. Mostly angry/grumpy co-workers and management. Forced to work 40-50 hours with no exception. Usually only 1 day off a week. Management is willing to hear complaints about the work environment but I never seen any improvement or progress made. Hire only through Temp agency. You have to stand most of the shift. Material handlers job is extremely stressful and difficult.

Advice to Management

Take more advice from your crew members. Worry less about productivity and more about your fellow co-workers.

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Was a good place to work when work was available. Pentair lost many jobs due to poor quality/personel turnover

    Cons

    Very poor management, no clear vision of where they need to go or what markets to attack...

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to find talented people to get the company back in line. QC needs to improve dramatically

    I worked at Pentair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Relatively stable company in most areas. Good benefits. Acquisitions can provide some opportunity.

    Cons

    Cost cutting may result in more facility closures like the one I worked for and there is limited movement among divisions so upward movement was uncommon while I was there.
