    I have been working at Polaris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    unlimited overtime, a lot of times mandatory.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed since new leadership took over. Dishonest/experienced supervisors and a lot of politics. It's not about how well you do your job, its about how much your boss likes you. Easy to cheat numbers to good look, management is too ignorant to know the difference. Things used to be different. This place used to be great, but it's all changed over the last couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect. Learn to manage people.

    Former Employee - Quality Inspector in Hope Mills, NC

    I worked at Polaris full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work if your good with your hands and working on deadlines. The wages and benefits offer students and any one who wants to go back to school the opportunity.

    Cons

    If your not uses to being on your feet and dealing with repetition all while using tools and stocking parts it's easy to fall behind, in turn affecting the coworkers job before you and after you negatively.

    Advice to Management

    More line leads may need to be trained to general areas to aide and or assist the line mangers to effectively address issues in a timely manner to assure less rework and return of company produced products.
