    I worked at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most supervisors are laid back and aren’t breathing down your neck. The job Paid decent and came with good benefits.

    Cons

    You never knew your work schedule, and they made it seem like it was a secret up to the last minute

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    Not a lot of pros here besides the people I happened to meet while working here. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Fluctuation in hours. One month you are scheduled full time or overtime and the next month you are laid off, eligible for unemployment until they start up again. Happens 2-3 times a year. Inconsistent in every sense. Upper Management only cares about money and not the employees. The turnover is insanely high. Overall a do not recommend unless you want to hate your job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees!!!

    "Great Company"

    I have been working at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced and performance driven. Flex-N-Gate strives for continuous improvement in all areas. Acquisition of new business and growth are at the core of Flex-N-Gate philosophy . A proven blueprint for success that has created solid market value.

    Cons

    It won't take long for you to learn what is expected of you by Corporate Management at Flex-N-Gate. They walk fast, talk fast and expect you to keep up. Lead, follow, or get out of the way. I don't really see this as a con, but if you are lazy or over sensitive you may not fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. New plant acquisitions continue to bring more revenue to our company. The fact that we continue to expand while others continue to sell or simply close plants speaks volumes.

    I worked at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The easy work and the benefits that comes included, respectful management and they also show a lot of love and appreciation.

    Cons

    The overbearing hours and some of the outrageous acts of favoritism to certain employees if you met the supervisor's standards.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the hours and give the employees a little bit more days off, ease off of the pressure of training new people.

    Pros

    Pay, education benefits are good nothing else follows

    Cons

    Management does nothing about hazing, employees purposely breaking machines then hiding while one weld tech does the work. If your disabled the hazing is 10 times worse for that person.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and do something about the lazy time comsuming thiefs that are stealing company time. Hazing/bulling is a serious crime which can cost your buisness. Stop the hazing/bullying or face a law suit.

    I have been working at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Currently there, GR5; only thing I can see as a pros is the use of your cell phone; people are literary walking the isle between presses, and looking on their phones!

    Cons

    Way out of standard vacation time; 5 days after almost 3 years at the company; point system is very cruel; you end up in hospital, or emergency room for surgery; heart attack, no problem; you get a point. You stay in hospital 3 days; here we go: 3 points to you! HR department is terrible! Always like 6 months behind their schedule!

    Advice to Management

    Improve vacation policy; employee's have families; get rid of old-timer supervisors who are not up to the task; stop micromanaging!

  8. "Okay only if you like mind numbing work and being treated as only a number"

    Pros

    Lots of overtime, good pay

    Cons

    The management doesn't care about your needs. Union shop and grievances are filed all the time against supervisors who don't treat anyone fairly. Hot factory work and you have no choice on what shift you get assigned to when you hire in.

    Pros

    Pay, overtime, they pay for school. Nothing else really to say or think of. There not really a lot of pro's anymore

    Cons

    They make rules as they go, union is for the company and the workers, they over work you, your seniority means NOTHING!!

    Advice to Management

    Watch how you treat your workers.
