"BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!! This company, regardless of how many years you work here, will always DENY unemployment. I have seen some of the greatest employees here who have 20+ years in the company, denied unemployment just because "that's what we do" mentality. That is the answer they give when asked if they can collect unemployment for their family when let go. It is a horrible place to work at, in terms of feeling valued from an employer. If you have family or close friends that work here, then you have a job for life but if you don't, don't expect to work here for very long. This company could really flourish but their mentality holds them back from doing that. Young management is only in these positions because of family relationships outside of work. Doesn't matter how qualified you are. DO YOUR FAMILY A FAVOR AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. THEY WILL THANK YOU FOR IT......."
"THE ABSOLUTE WORST COMPANY EVER!!!!! Be extremely cautious on working for this employer. They DO NOT VALUE PEOPLE.....They say they do because the culture is different, and it is but in a very BAD way. Nepotism is extremely bad here and if you have a family, the HDP insurance is horrible. They only value family and friends here. I have read through all of the other reviews and they are so true. It is sad because this could be a great place to work but management makes it horrible. So many great people have left this place and have been let go of this place only to better themselves and their families with better opportunities. Do yourself a favor and find a better employer. Don't waste your time here....."
"When I first started At a&p This place was awesome needless to say After a couple years of being there the place Became a show. The president is the only thing good about this company the people are backstabbing liars and manipulators you can’t trust anybody that works there is all out for themselves. And all the negative information on here is dead on. I wish I would’ve never of worked here."
"The reviews on this company are so true when it comes to how the company does not value good employees. Thank God I have family member that work here because if I didn't, I would have been let go like all the other good employees that didn't have family that worked here. Insurance is terrible....Their culture is terrible....And their value for people is horrible. If you are looking for long term employment, this is not the place. During these times there is plenty of other employers out there that will value you and appreciate you. Unfortunately, this is not that company......"
"Want to work somewhere that makes you happy and/or feel appreciated? If you answered yes, don’t come to A&P Technology. Family owned and operated....poorly. Oh, did I mention family? If you aren’t actually related to someone or know someone, well, good luck. Again, don’t come to A&P. The idea of this place sounds and looks great, especially during orientation. “We like to have fun, party, drink, and do other fun things.” That’s right, every now and then, they do. Yet, the overall experience of working at A&P does not reflect that. In production, where the majority works, you are not valued. You have absolutely no chance at furthering your career at A&P. The president is a great guy, but unfortunately the VP, is unbearable to work with. Which is where all of the orders are being hailed from. She will do everything in her power to make you believe that she is better than you, she can do no wrong, and the potential of pleasing her is minimal. This is true unless you are part of her crew of glorified customer representatives aka the sales team, that enjoy going on “sales trips” to the lake, her son’s pool, or Montana, DURING WORK. How do they expect the production crew to feel about that? They are constantly trying to boost morale in a positive manner, which tends to just decrease it further. Now, while this hasn’t been a positive review, mainly because of leadership. There is still some light shining through. There are great people that work at A&P, and which is why you do find some hope. Just don’t rely on that too much, because it’s just a matter of time to which that hope is smashed."
"Horrible place to work don’t bother used to be a great place , hasn’t been that way in years hr plays favorites and are out of control , you think you get vacation but if you use it or the insurance you will get fired . Managers are pathetic. If your seeing any good reviews it’s from the I.t department and they drive Porsche’s big surprise , during the pandemic they collected the ppp money then demanded every come back if you didn’t because at that time no one knew what was going on they said we consider you have quit cashed your check then denied your unemployment yeah great company probably should be under investigation for fraud"
"Looking for one the most depressing and out of touch places to work in America? Look no further than Ohio's own backyard! Starring nepotistic managers, incredibly toxic working style, and an inability to grow; AP Technology! The world leader in hot air and smoke screens! Drink the Kool-Aid with the office staff and worship the CEO and his best friend/love interest as they fly around the world, looking for contracts to fail! Watch as a bumbling engineering department led by a GE Dropout fails to put together an original design, for the 20th year in a row! With four state of the art (as of 1990) facilities each run like their own little work camp, you too can become clinically depressed working for a company that targets bright and young adults who won't know any better, or broke and desperate experienced workers! See how management can only be so if they're related to four boys who went to high school with the higher-up's kids! And most importantly, watch as the terrible products you make become ever more the laughing stock of the international market! The reality of working for this company is disgusting, a family led and owned enterprise that treats their workers like indentured servants. They will lie to you and act like your closest friends, preaching "the company family" line and stab you in the back as soon as it is necessary to them. Don't be fooled by their one contract they sold to Nasa once, but totally could do again speech. The equipment is horribly maintained, the designs are mediocre if not bad, and most production lines are simple holdover contracts that no one is sure if are even used anymore. This is a company that will duct tape a critical sensor to a machine and call it precision. Do yourself a favor, just don't. Unless you're looking for the above experience or some sort of sadist. Just don't work here."
"I will make this review very simple and to the point. If you are not related to or know somebody that works here then don't apply. The company uses a revolving door here to get rid of good people and they have you sign an "At Will" agreement every year to remind you that they will get rid of you at anytime they feel fit. I know of some really great employees that have worked here but the company have exercised they agreement and got rid of them. I have managed here for many years but have family members that have work here so I am somewhat protected. I have told upper management how I feel but it falls on deaf ears. Insurance is extremely expensive and is not good at all. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this employer at all costs. You will be glad you did."
"It amazes me how the family members and the people that are making really good money here are always defending this company. Yet when I talk with them privately, they complain and tear down the owner and this company. I understand that they don't want to lose their job for voicing their opinion. You are given no direction or guidance here. I have sat in on meetings where they want to get rid of good employees because they want new, young people in here where they don't use the insurance. They know how to use the system and eliminate people from making a career at this place. I know people who have been here for over 20 years and then all of a sudden they are just let go because they had multiple medical expenses that year. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this employer at all costs."
"Employee BEWARE of this employer. I have been here over 25 years and it has gone down hill drastically. It used to be a great place to work 20 years ago but HR has no backbone and will agree to fire people for no good reasons. I have had many of my good friends let go because they literally just rotate people in and out to get new people in here. It doesn't matter if you are a great employee or not. If you are not connected with family that works here you are more than likely going to be let go. HR knows that this is wrong but they do nothing about it. They let top management just have their way so that they aren't let go. Even our medical insurance keeps getting worse and worse. You never know who is going to get let go and it's not fun thinking that every month you work here. Most of the reviews on here are correct and yes they are accurate when the one person said that they are trying to save their reputation by putting positive reviews on here. It's a shame that the owner allows this kind of nonsense to continue here."
"I am employed by A&P Technology and plan to retire here. I've been in industry since the late 70's and I have never been more proud to work with a group of people as I am now. I can see how some people's world views gave rise to some of the negative reviews here. However, many seem rooted in expectations of A&P being something it's not. A&P Technology's is a growing company with a thin management structure. You do not move up through a standardized hierarchy but by earning responsibility and broadening your reach within the company. Success here is not defined by job titles. If you need a well-defined, static structure to be successful this is not the company for you. The team values a sense of urgency, obsessiveness with regard to giving customers what they need and want and assuming responsibility when you become aware of issues or opportunities. That does not end once someone else is made aware. Here, things do not "happen" to you nor are things "done" to you. Rather, you succeed by making things happen and doing things. The success of those efforts is defined by whether they help customers or help the team's future efforts. The freedom you experience working here has its price with that being self-reliance and continually helping others. The team values referrals from its members because those who succeed here tend to be associated with others who would do likewise. I came to A&P Technology 14 years ago in a lucky happenstance and felt so at home that I recommended several members of my family. It's been suggested that that's putting too many eggs in one basket but we think this is the right basket. The opportunities to learn, grow and make an impact are too rare and when you find them you need to act on them. I highly recommend A&P Technology as a career. I do not recommend it if you are more focused on needing a job, looking for temporary perch, or want to be told what to do, do it, collect your pay and call it a workweek."
"I have worked here for many years and have seen management treat their employees terribly. Most of the reviews on here are correct. I have talked with the I.T. department and they added some "good" reviews on here to save the companies reputation. It's a shame that I have seen this company get rid of good, honest people just because they are not favored or part of a family that works here. The nepotism is really bad here. I basically have a job here for life since my family works here but that doesn't mean I agree with what they do here. The V.P. of Development is too young and inexperienced. He makes horrible decisions that benefit nobody but then again his family if very close to the owner so it's no surprise he is in that position. Do yourself a favor and look for a better employer who will treat you more fairly."
"Be careful for the 5 star reviews here...Their I.T. department is trying to save the reputation of this company. I have managed here since August of 2016 and this company is not what it appears to be. Very dishonest and deceptive. I don't agree with how employees are treated and how they let people go for no good reason. I have seen the worst nepotism in a company that one can imagine. There are countless reasons I can give you not to work here. The other reviews that talk about how great it is to work here is because they are protected by the correct people so they can survive. The employees do not have a voice and never will with the way they manage here. The insurance is the worst insurance I have ever had from an employer. I am only speaking out now because I am looking for new employment elsewhere. They thrive on the young people who just don't know any better. If you decide to work here, more than likely, they will let you go for no reason. One of the reasons they have you sign an "At Will" agreement every year. So they can remind you of that....STAY AWAY FROM THIS EMPLOYER. MUCH BETTER EMPLOYERS OUT THERE!!"
"I'm not sure why people feel compelled to post something negative about A&P and its employees. I'm guessing they just weren't a good fit. I have worked at A&P for over 20 years and still have nothing but good things to say about our company. I am not related to anyone nor did I go to school with any of Pam's (COO) kids. However, I work very closely with all of the employees referred to in previous posts and agree 100% with the positions they have been awarded. These individuals are smart, hard working, motivated and dedicated people. I believe the current structure of our company is what we need to get us through these troublesome times. I guess I'm one of the "Middle Age Karen's" to whom the post is referring. However, I am very happy with my life so I take offense to that comment. I am very fortunate in that I do not have to work, I choose to work and I choose A&P. I'm posting this because I feel that our company or people don't get the credit they deserve and we here at A&P wish the one who are no longer with us the best of luck in the future."
"Unfortunately, this site seems to be visited only by employees who have been fired, so the reviews are skewed. A&P is a wonderful place to work evidenced by the tenure of its employees - 12 year average with many at 20+ years. The owner and COO have worked tirelessly to make A&P a happy, satisfying place to work and to keep A&P at the forefront of composite material technology. Employees are given the freedom to explore different areas within the company to find the right fit and everyone is allowed input as to suggestions for continuous improvement. I cannot imagine not being happy here - A&P is full of smart, creative hard workers."
