Chinese Sweat Shop.

Molding Operator/Material Handler (Former Employee)
Delavan, WI (US)

I worked at Pentair full-time for less than a year

ProsGood Pay. Many Hours. Ability to advance quickly. They will get your forklift certified if you show promise. Hire through Temp agency. Relatively easy work.

ConsDismal environment. Mostly angry/grumpy co-workers and management. Forced to work 40-50 hours with no exception. Usually only 1 day off a week. Management is willing to hear complaints about the work environment but I never seen any improvement or progress made. Hire only through Temp agency. You have to stand most of the shift. Material handlers job is extremely stressful and difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake more advice from your crew members. Worry less about productivity and more about your fellow co-workers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
