Company Culture

They all mean well but 80% of them are spiteful bitter people..but timken has made it that way!

Support from management

They all mean well but 80% of them are spiteful bitter people..but timken has made it that way!

Teamwork

They dont intentionally do this i think but managment has a created the hostile environment here

Freedom to work independently

They force you to work without proper training independently but i wouldnt say its a trust more like they do not want to deal with it

Internal Communication

They do not communicate with anyone you always have to track down four people to find one answer

Gender Equality

They dont treat them fairly but the plant has a ton of woman workers

Career Development

There is kind of...you might be able yo get yo a certain point maybe pay grade 3/5 but above that is nesr impossible also we have had somewhere of 20 management employees quit and go to competitors because they had peaked as far as money/job title etc..

Overall compensation for your work

I havent had a raise in 3 years regardless of going above and beyond like they require im a one man shift/department and still generate new revenue projects but yet i havent had any form of raise except when they took away 12% of my profit sharing...and gave me a dollar raise..to compensate

Office / Work Environment

We do have lights...

Environmental Friendliness

They do but only as far as on paper they dont care just dont want a fine

Work-Life Balance

They are pretty lenient as far as needing to leave work or miss a day

Job Security

I am pretty sure my job isnt going anywhere i mean im the only person in the world who cuts 81x Ctl...supposedly...

Handicapped Accessibility

Up front bathroom had a handicap stall but thats it o and a ramp out front sidewalk lol

Workplace Safety

They take people who have been here for 3 weeks train new hires they ssy safety is number 1 but in reality they do not csre until it shows on paper we had ober 100 first aid incidents and like 27ish osha recordables last year

Challenging Work

Its not mental challenging by any means at least my job but it is physically taxing and brutal when i work with the heavier chaind

Inclusive / Diverse

They say they do but you can voice your opinion and it will just be pushed aside you literally have to bug them day in day out to even get something fixed let alone improved

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pbs should be mandatory they need to be more up front everything they say has this weasel sound behind it like you know they are going to blow you off..

What I like about the company

I have meet some awesome people who have become family..

What I dislike about the company

Everything from how they do inventory super screwed up to how the group leaders push everything under the rug and put a band-aid on the problem also they dont communicate between departments.
