Hired for one role and put in a lower position (Former Employee) says"They definitely do not like someone who is different than them. If you lack morals, ethics, and love wine without cheese, this is definitely the place. Laid back environment and snakes loves lounging in the garden during the summer too. Most definitely would not recommend this place especially minorities. Ive never seen so many males with that many mood swings and whine so much. Clearly they are as needy as their customers.Employee engagement activities every once in awhile.unethical, unaccountable, love to lie and place blame on others when the plan for their tactic to merge doesnt work, inconsistent with protocol, and training."
Material Handler II (Former Employee) says"Scantron was not a great place to work and did not treat their employee's the best."

Printing Press Operator (Current Employee) says"Multiple layoffs in the past few years. Management tells us work there is slowing. Laid off production workers, putting more work on the rest of employees. That being said annual merit increases also have been held in the past. Morale in the shop is bad.Vacation, education reimbursementhealthcare cost, unstable work"
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) says"Tendenances to put down the department I work in even though that is where the most revenue was brought in. The researcher that is required to donwithin the job is a favorite of mine."

Design Specialist III (Former Employee) says"After working and devoting 26 years of time to a company I thought was dependable, I was laid off without any warning. Left a very sore feeling. Even though there were others with more time in and those close to retirement, they left me go even though year in and out my reviews were always good. Business was in the decline year to year, but still can’t understand their thinking, was told it was due to restructuring."

Sr. Technical Recruiter (Former Employee) says"Some turbulence, but great people that have a vision. Management is competent, energetic and fun. The business needs to technically catch up to competition. it is attempting to do so. the next year will determine the fate of the company..."
Manager, Sales Ops (Former Employee) says"When I started at Scantron, it felt like a family-owned business. It was large but felt personal and home-like. As the company grew and acquired companies and, ultimately was acquired itself, the dynamic changed and it lost its family atmosphere. Perhaps that is a California-based analysis. Maybe in Minnesota, where the headquarters was moved, it still feels that way. I saw changes in CEO seven times in a 3-year period and with each new successor to the position, the value of the California operations diminished.Potential growth.Less personal"
Shop Hand (Former Employee) says"Great company to work for but only had a contract so didn’t get to work there long but still learned a bunch of new things like working with metal and fabricationFunHeavy lifting"
Finishing Technician (Current Employee) says"I worked as a Finishing Technician. Overall, the job is fairly simple and some aspects are challenging. The company as a whole strives for quantity and quality, the management and supervision was fantastic and friendly! We got advancements when the company was able to do so, we also had other free treats like free pizza, doughnuts, coffee, popcorn, etc. as incentives.Great management, small company, small incentives throughout the yearThe busy season requires you to work 7 days a week, which can be difficult with a family or social life. The pay is liveable but not exactly desireable."
