    Pros

    Pay was OK, but workload excessive

    Cons

    "Old boy's club" where, if you are not buddies with people there for decades, you will be used and spit out. Watch out for back stabbers and an HR dept that works to help their friends and relatives get jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Get the senior HR doing some work; get junior HR out of major decision making.

    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.
