Team Leader (Current Employee) – Marion, OH – 26 December 2018
Management is absolutely horrible. There is no communication and I mean NONE. The management team is not very professional as they talk about employees to other employees and favoritism is a must for the management team. They say they don’t but everyone in the floor sees differently. Hours - they don’t care because they are clock watchers and when they want to leave whether there r problems or what they bolt leaving everything to the employees whether or not we know what to do or how to do it. The training is a total joke - I was given a 15 minute speech in what to do when I was first hired. NO promotions u less you are part of “the click “. Understaffed by all means. They over work all employees by all means and no let up either. Hours are so up and down and from day to day. 1 Day it is 10 hours - the next day it may be 8 hours. Sorta hard to plan anything with the family
Insurance / pay / tome off when allowed to take it even though it is yours to use
I have 21yrs in warehouse and other people way less and they get promoted and they are worthless lazy people don’t pull there wait favoritisms there worried about other shift what they are doing but not the shift there on

You can grow and there is room for growth and different opportunities.And the atmosphere is a family oriented very great place to work.i would most defiantly recommend this job to others a very great place to work.
I worked as a temp in the Mortars Department, the guys are excellent to work with. They never treated me any different. The manager there was great.
Mortars (Former Employee) – Marion, OH – 1 November 2018
Sika was a temporary assignment for me. I was saddened to see it end. They are a great company to work for, wages are decent, staff is great, management in my department is impeccable. My only complaint is in the Mortars Department where I worked the equipment is extremely outdated and those guys are way under staffed.Sika is by far one of the greatest jobs out there. They rarely have permanent job openings however, which is hard to understand. If HR would talk to Dapartment Heads they would see they are understaffed in nearly every department.
Truck Driver - Class A Tanker (Former Employee) – Santa Fe Springs, CA – 31 July 2018
Freindly atmosphere, willing to train inexperienced tank operators. Sometimes doubled as a technician to help with installations. Operational knowledge shared about company products and how they're used in customer applications.
Sika has a lot of great benefits for its employees but lacks in safety machines are in disrepair and there is no chance of advancement since everything is dictated by seniority, not by work ethics or qualification or knowledge. Production suffers because machines are in disrepair running poorly and even though management is aware of this they will not address the problem until a complete breakdown and even then it is only a patchwork job not addressing the real problem.

Plant Manager (Current Employee) – North America – 10 April 2018
Recent events caused the western portion of the corporation to have some terrible hurdles but the teams that work locally are dedicated and will work through any challenges. Bad upper management, great employees.
Employee (Former Employee) – Grandview, MO – 19 March 2018
Manager first culture, do not care about employees, long hours, poor work life balance. Not a safety first environment. Poor union representation. Some managers work very hard and care about employees but senior managers and company VP does not even know how bad morale really is.
Operator (Former Employee) – Grandview, MO – 27 February 2018
This place is like a circus, things change every time you turn around, work schedule (7 days a week and forced up to 12 hours per day) Managers are very unprofessional and empathic along with the HR manager. Employee's work very hard day in and day out with no gratitude for job's well done! If you are person looking to work yourself to death and have no iteraction with loved ones or friends Sika is agreat fit for you!! Others dont fall in the trap of Sika!!
cant think of any
no days off, no paid breaks except for lunch break
Not a well put together corporation. Management is a brunch of people who shouldn’t have their job also they don’t care about there employees no advancement unless you have a degree and over work their employees.
Sika is a great place to work. The company has experienced a lot of growth through mergers and acquisitions. The culture is good with managers that are passionate about what they do. Overall, good benefit plan, including medical the day you start.
TEMP (Former Employee) – Conyers, GA – 16 January 2018
I Mixed ingredients to form Sika concrete. Very messy a lot of heavy lifting, measuring, and weighing up powder substances. i sometimes would machine operate and stand up lift when i needed to pull items. nice people but the only thing was when you work hard some don't like that but hey i work hard. It was a temp service job and i was told it would take 2 to 4 years to make it permanent but the job was temporary Sika worked me real good until the date i was told i was no longer needed the positions were temporary but great experienced i learned some new things
Production (Former Employee) – Grandview, MO – 5 January 2018
If you enjoy having any kind of life outside of work this is not the place for you. Hours are horrible, and forced mandatory OT can happen at any time. Humanity doesn't exist and you will be a number, always feel like a number, and know you are always disposable. The culture is horrible.
