    I worked at Rain Bird full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above average pay
    Good people to work with
    Product is of a good quality
    Name is well known in industry
    Sorry, not much else

    Cons

    So many accurate reviews already written and they are true. Amazon must have copied the Rainbird method. They just aren't upfront with what it will be like working there. Ask basic questions such as: "What is turnover?" They will say "high but most people can't take working for such a high performance company" The Alpha in you will say, "But I can". It's not a high performance organization in terms of product development like an Amazon or Google. It's a old line irrigation company and you won't understand the rules until it is too late. Just take heed of what has been written thus far

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't matter what is written. They won't listen and upper management has figured out the owner's pain points

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

    Pros

    Great environment, lots of opportunities, good wages.

    Cons

    The upper managing does not believe on workers capacities and does not provide career enhancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I do believe that providing opportunities to the workers show their capabilities and delegating them jobs opportunities, is better to reach out higher results.
    Definetly this is more profitable than working on numbers and cost reductions!

    Pros

    Excellent place to work for driven individuals. You're given room to prove your worth and top performance is rewarded.

    Cons

    I wouldn't consider the company a fun place to work. I would say that there is high turnover rate and lack of stability in certain work-groups. HR is not extraordinary.

    Advice to Management

    Review the benefits program.

    I have been working at Rain Bird (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that worked there were really nice. The work was easy. I was a temp so they would make me do all kinds of things around the warehouse but it was a good experience.

    Cons

    The biggest issues sometimes was the face that so many people were temps. The turnover rate was kind of high for the company. It was difficult dealing with work issues sometimes because so many people didn't know how to do something because they were new or learning.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to try and keep your eyes on some of the temps. Many of them liked to mess around and not do their work.
