Assistant (Former Employee) says"they don't care for the employee. they will take care of their team leaders first. they treat tree employees like dirt. or as the plant manager says "over paid monkeys". I was there for almost 5 years and aside from the people there, the work is terrible, poor air quality and heat in the summer is unbearable. heaven forbid you sit down and take a break in a small air conditioned room with cameras watching constantly. bonuses are a joke."
Helper Heat Treat Line (Former Employee) says"I worked VERY BRIEFLY at Bekaert in Orrville, Ohio. The pay is very low, the working conditions are horrible, it’s cut throat City with fellow employees and they are scared to death of a union. I wouldn’t even recommend this place to my ex-wife’s significant other. Yes, it’s that bad.Day one when it was done.Everything about being there."
Production member. (Former Employee) says"This company at this location is not union. 12 hour shifts working 6 weeks of days and 6 weeks of nights; your body never adjusts. Work life balance is non-existant, starting pay has not increased in years, pay raises are rare. Job is hot dirty and strenuous, less than minimal staff for such a large operation. Management sits in the A/C and will come out to berate you for not meeting herculean goals. Just stay away, you'll just waste your time and put your personal life in jeopardy.NoneCrazy shifts, low pay"
Drawing Operator (Former Employee) says"These people judge you the second they look at you. Extremely unprofessional all the way around. Waiste of time. Very clicky and uncultured environment do not waiste your time. Especially if your a minority. Never been to such an unprofessional environment couldn't get my name right, and had no idea what they wanted to ask me. Would've want to work here if they did hire me. Even though what I do now is probably more money Amy's."
Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Scrolling through jobs and saw Bekaert is hiring a Logistics Administrator in Rogers, Arkansas. If I can help anyone to avoid this, that will be a huge step for mankind. Run, don't walk away from this position! I worked there several years ago as a Logistics Administrator. Horrible management! Know they are working behind your back to build a case against you instead of trying to work with you. The worst training program I've ever been involved with. I was NOT qualified for the position (I didn't know this on the onset) and there was no one to help when questions were asked. Sink or swim. Glad I sank - that was a hidden blessing. Office was dirty. Avoid this position. BEKAERT IS ONE BIG SNAKE PIT!!!!!The whole picture, poor management - especially in Supply Chain"
Operator (Current Employee) says"Micromanaging at it's finest. Treats employees like dirt and expects them to smile and be thankful about it. Completely incompetent and uncaring. Severe devide on the management and staff level. No communication whatsoever. The people only stay there because the job pays well and they feel like their trapped there because of it. The light is definitely blown out in the workers eyes.. like manufacturing broken down zombies just waiting for pay day. Would not recommend.Pay is good but definitely not worth it with the stress you have to deal withEverything"
Machine Operator (Current Employee) says"Supervisor smells of alcohol. When reported to upper management, it gets brushed under the table because he has 30 plus years of employment. We as employees make it through the shift because we bind together"
Production technician (Current Employee) says"Expected to do the work of 3 people by yourself and when it's not achievable you get written up even when you're giving your best effort at 110%. Also when you get hurt on the job trying to do the work of 3 they make up their own rules so you can't get workmans comp.There is none. This place sucks12 hour swing shifts every 6 weeks, Poor Management, production workers berated constantly, poor work ethics, not a team oriented environment, not paid enough for the stress put on you from an unorganized office personnel."
Chief (Current Employee) says"The Management has created chaos for the past 2 years with no end in sight. The company is making money despite management not because of it. Lack of respect for the good people working the lines who are actually the ones keeping the company from going under.Operators are nice and knowledgableManagement's Chaos style of "management""
Operator (Current Employee) says"Terrible mgmt has destroyed us. They have managed to shut down 1/2 of factory and are laying off over 50 people. They will not invest money needed to fix problems. I am not sure how long we will survive."

Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) says"This company doesn't care about how hard you work. It's all about who you know. Be careful of what you you say because it may be somebody's kin folk that your talking to. You can work yourself to death covering shifts and going from nights to day to help your Dept. Out and never be appreciated. If offered a job with this company do yourself a favor and pass"
