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

    Pros

    The ability to make decisions without reaching out to someone else

    The discount on firearms and ammunition was about 40%

    Cons

    The conversations between upper management and their employees could have been improved quite a bit

    Advice to Management

    It would be better to let the lower employees know the truth. It was obvious when we were struggling but instead we would get smoke instead of truth. Better to give us truth

    Pros

    Great Benefits, enjoyed working with the people in my department.

    Cons

    No job security, company just cares about money and will get rid of people just to save a buck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying

    Pros

    There are no Pros to working there, none.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime every Saturday. Low pay. Union has ridiculous rules. The Ilion factory is old and dirty. Quality and pride of workmanship mean nothing to the management.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the business to somebody who takes pride in the products they produce. Rather than simply focused on ROI. You guys are a lost cause.

    Pros

    Easy work, easy and flexible hours. Listen to music while working. Really can't think of anything else to put for a 20 word minimum

    Cons

    Corporate, wages, disconnect with industry, maltreatment of employees. Basically everything that is wrong you can think of in regards to a bad company

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

    Pros

    - The people. The ones doing the work day-to-day (the engineers, program/product managers, test lab techs, team leads, manufacturing engineers, etc.) are some of the hardest working people in the business. They truly believe in the company and their job.
    - The benefits. Comparing the ROC benefits to other companies, the insurance & 401k are pretty good and make up for some of the other companies out there. Additionally, if you're into the shooting sports then the discounts are a definite perk.

    Cons

    - Leadership. They don't care about the people, just the numbers and the schedule. Whoever has to be run over or thrown aside, they'll do it to make themselves look good. Also has the tendency to say one thing and do another. There is a great deal of mistrust between the rank and file. Current CEO is a "fix-it" guy who is more interested in making the balance sheet look good than actually fixing the root cause of the problem.
    - Professional Development: There is none. If you express interest in a new position growth, they will throw you in the deep end and leave you to fend for yourself. Preference is given to employees who talk a big game and are buddy-buddy with the management. Don't be fooled.
    - Honesty: Management will lie to your face without any hesitation or remorse. Employees recently RIF'ed were told that they were eligible for rehire but were, in fact, not.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like they're an expendable piece of machinery to be used up and discarded. You're not in the middle of nowhere anymore and your employees have a lot of options. You need them more than they need you.

    I have been working at Remington Arms full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ammo is fun to work with. You can also purchase it at the company store for cheap. Always a challenge to be overcome within the facility. Most folks are very friendly. If you're motivated you will move up fast within the company. Opportunities are endless within the facility, if you're willing to work you can make improvements.

    Cons

    Culture of the plant is completely against trying anything new. Management changes quite frequently. The structure of the organization has changed constantly over the last ten years, with high turnover rate within management and engineering. Lack of ability to gather data unless you do it yourself manually can be frustrating. Processes are not followed or kept updated which can be aggravating. The MRP system is also difficult to work with. Resources for support can often seem scarce when working any project.

    Advice to Management

    Set goals, then empower your people with the resources to accomplish them. Then clearly communicate them to all teams, hourly and salary at the same time.

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

    Pros

    Met alot of good co workers in production. Location of building is easy access from interstate. Drink machines stay full, and bathrooms stay clean and supplied!

    Cons

    Revolving door atmosphere for employment, people getting shot in the range, not worth $ 12.36 an hour, bullets going threw walls and steel doors, having maintenance working on genie lifts right beside production lines, and continue working, management has no regard for safety only numbers. The state of Alabama made a mistake making a deal with this company. Remington has not been honest since day one. North east exit stays locked, during fire alarm workers have to walk to South east exit and stay within the fence which puts employees less than 100 feet away from building! Only ones with job security are the management members that came from other plants!

    Advice to Management

    None, they have their own agenda.
