Not recommended. Avoid this place.
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC18 October 2018
Used to be a good compnay. Conditions of work are deteriorating very fast. A lot of new employees with low skills. You are expected to do more and more to be paid minimum wage. There's a lot of better companies on Montreal Island. No room for advancement, no room for skill development. Every day more work with less persons.
Pros
Nothing
Cons

PRODUCT MARKETING MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Jebel Ali Freezone17 September 2018
Started my career in Customer service team and got promoted to Product Marketing Manager. It was a wonderful learning period of 11 years. Management was supportive and empowered employees to come up with ideas and share knowledge. This has helped me to groom myself into the corporate world.

Quality Specialist (Current Employee) –  Lexington, KY7 September 2018
Check e-mails for any active stuff for that day. My manager is a great person to work for. Makes it a no stressful job. When a problem arises the team gets together to figure out what needs to be done to get it fixed.
Pros
My manager. Not stressed. Hours worked.

QA Technician (Former Employee) –  Waukegan, IL31 August 2018
The upper management was questionable in there decision to move our operations to another facility that wasn't equipped for what we did. The people at our facility were well trained and very committed to make sure that the product sent out was properly made and the customer would be very satisfied with our products.

Stay away
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Alabama22 August 2018
Since being bought by dormakaba the management at the Alabama facility (Mesker Door) has been the worst I have ever seen. Replacing a highly knowledgeable and experienced production manager with a engineer that seems to have no idea how to run a manufacturing plant. They do not care about their employees safety and ignore safety suggestions made by their employees. There is no pay scale, if you've been there for 15 years you can still make the same amount of money as someone that's been there for 2 months.
Pros
Coworkers on the production floor, its a paycheck
Cons
New Management brought in by dormakaba

The Cliques rule
Shipping Clerk/Order Picker (Former Employee) –  Madison Heights, MI4 July 2018
Pay was okay. Average for the position.
Hours were bearable.
It was however, driven completely by cliques - with each group trying to undermind the others. Very much a "watch your back" kind of job. If you had the right friends, you could get away with a lot.
Nepotism was also very bad. My boss got his job because his girlfriend was the warehouse boss. He was completely unqualified otherwise.
Pros
Money & hours were okay
Cons
Nepotism, very cliquey

Got bought out, new management doesn't care
Floor worker (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, AL4 May 2018
Got bought out by an out of country company. Cut benefits, halfed 401k contributions, all insurance payments went up.

Management doesn't care about the employees, would stab in the back at a moments notice to save face. Was a somewhat decent place to work before the merger. Even if you apply, they are on a hiring freeze. Hard to want to double production numbers if people leave and you do not hire more. Good luck all, you are going to need it...
Pros
Clocking out
Cons
Clocking in

Management is incompetent and out of touch
Frame line (Former Employee) –  Huntsville, AL3 February 2018
Management wil lie to you and promise raises and bonuses but rarely come through. All departments are pitted against each other causing back stabbing and brown nosing . Most people only keep working there because they lack education and self worth. This review is only for the Alabama location.
Pros
Decent benifits
Cons
Lies, forced overtime, low pay
