Rubbermaid Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Rubbermaid is an American manufacturer and distributor of many household items. It is a subsidiary of Newell Brands. It is best known for producing food storage containers and trash cans. Additionally, it produces sheds, step stools, closets and shelving, and laundry baskets, but also air fresheners and other household items.
"Anubhav" from Amazon wrote on June 2016 a review of his Rubbermaid container:
"The product clearly specifies that it's microwave safe but it's not. While washing the container I realized that there were rough areas/lines in the container, that had occurred while heating. Don't recommend using the plastic ones in the microwave. Just to specify, my microwave has a turntable and so there were no issues of hot spots or anything."
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"2 months with this company and nothing but harassment by a couple of employees. Management did absolutely nothing. This obviously empowered the employees. Don't waist your time if you are white. You will be met with continuous harassment, bullying, and intimidation. Including being called a honky, racist, bigot. No assistance from management.ZeroRacism, Harassment"
Production Worker (Current Employee) says"You don't want to come here. We are Expendables. They hold back payouts only to waste funds elsewhere. They understand no logic and dont walk their own talk, but you better. Just when u think it can get no worse heres your 20th supervisor they found at maceys reject arena, Who has no clue what the word production means and do not care"
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) says"workers risk their health and life working 12 hours a day during the current epidemic and the assistant warehouse raising all kinds of cane because they have to fill up alcohol bottles to sanitize equipment , very classless."

Driver/Operator (Former Employee) says"Laid off without notice. Said too many workers at the time. Then a couple weeks later was hiring 20 plus people again. No phone call back. I showed up to work on time and nothing."
Rotational Mold Operator (Current Employee) says"Was looking for a stable place I could grow and get more experience and it just hasn't been the case. I want to feel like the employer is sympathetic to employee issues and questions.Pay was decentNot a place to grow"
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) says"It was such a terrible place to work worst manager she was such a terrible person moral was low I was so happy when they shut it down that manager ran that place into the ground .NoneEverything"
Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee) says"This company had a horrible culture and did not promote from within, period. Yearly we would be subject to cuts and belt tightening, only to hear about the gross margin records being set at the end of the year.You will get huge responsibility and experienceYou will not be recognized or compensated for any of it"
Operator (Former Employee) says"When you get interviewed they promise you bucu over time, profit sharing benefits, ect. I know someone that has been with this company for 6 months. They are lucky to get 40 hours a week, no profit sharing bonus, no Christmas bonus, NOTHING that they were promised. This company is a joke. Then to top it off employees were informed yesterday that things will only be getting worse so they can waist money on things that are not needed or pointless! How can a company screw their employees (the back bone of every company) and expect a good response. In my opinion never, never NEVER stoop low enough to need this job.You get to financially struggle.Everything!"
Jefe de Producto y Trade Marketing (Current Employee) says"Se trabaja con mucho stress debido al maltrato y malos modos de la Dirección Local. No hay plan de carrera, se cambian las definciones de los roles de manera frecuente asi como las condiciones de trabajo y beneficios. Se trabaja bajo la premisa de que hay que tolerar el maltrato y sobrecarga por el riesgo a ser despedido.Hay cafe y Bebidas gratisEl salario no tiene los ajustes por inflación que el pais requiere"
Sales (Former Employee) says"Grab any free samples you can and run. Don't hang people out to dry when they go to bat for you with the local customer that impacts other areas of the business and bonusesFree samplesterrible culture at corporate and local team level"
Machine Operator (Former Employee) says"very stressful place to work.they was very bad to the workers and threated poelpe bad .work their people everyday no break .it does pay good but is not worth it.paid goodeverything else"
Employee (Former Employee) says"My experience was anything but positive. Management is highly inexperienced, completely inept, passive aggressive/manipulative/bullying. I do not recommend this this company to anyone, most specifically in tech design (not even to grads/entry level people who want or need to gain experience). At least, not until Sr management gets their heads out of the rear ends and replaces TD mangement with individuals who possess LEGITIMATE TD skills with a minimum of 10+ years of experience AND has people-managing experience. Pay is extremely low, especially when compared to other apparel companies with similar TD/apparel development roles that are also located within the SF Bay Area. Any time spent here is not worth it.Free parking, nice officeArchaic systems/processes, no training, incompetent tech design management"
Quarterback (Former Employee) says"They work you like a dog for the busy season then let you go. If you don't kiss butt and get in with the in crowd you will not advance at all. They keep the amazing people who deserve to be promoted stuck on their machines and let the people who can't make numbers and slack off be promoted to higher positions they are undeserving of. Don't get your hopes up working here. It's a sinking ship."
Shipping Clerk (Former Employee) says"Not a good place to work, Supervisor want treat you right. Hot place to work, good lunch rooms. Not enough pay for the job that you do, Can't decide if you going to work 50 or 40 hours a week.Good lunch roomsSupervisior want treat you right."
Temporary Employee (Former Employee) says"They only hired temporary workers for the season, instead of air conditioning they had giant fans that rotate which does make the air less stuffy but does nothing for the heat. Since the warehouse is running dozens of assembly machines at a time the heat is extreme, you spend 14 hours a day standing on concrete with no carpets or padding. Usually working 5 days out of the week. The hours are always the same so that is the only real benefit here. Its a contract job through an employment agency so your pay is minimum wage, 8$ and hour where I lived. The management will rush you to do faster telling you that you are behind your quota when you actually are not just to boost their numbers because the manager with the highest number for the month gets a bonus.Consistent HoursEverything"
Machine operator (Former Employee) says"Easy to get hired, pass a hair follicle test and background check and you're in! Jobs are difficult and production based, usually paying 7.25hr. You can make 10-13 hr after getting good enough at job to make the high production quotas. Raises are lump sum based .25 times a estimated 2000 hrs. No cost of living raises whatsoever! Not one through 20yrs. Hot, nasty work. Only for the desperateVacation days, 401kInsurance, working conditions and pay"
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) says"Management was hard to get along with. Stressful environment to work in. not understanding at all they only cared about the numbers at the end of the daypay checkhours"
Receiving Operator/forklift operaor (Former Employee) says"Nice lace to work, before the new supervisors from macys came in and I'm pretty sure they dont know what they are doing. safety is horrible, people are very dangous on the forklifts, and the leads and supervisors dont treat their employees fair.n/an/a"
Annemarie O'Sullivan says"The item has not been delivered. Rubbermaid are not responding to my emails. It took some effort to find their phone number. I phoned 3 times and was cut off whilst trying to ask for a refund. Very poor customer service."
Nathan Hunter says"i am warning everyone that rubbermaids guarantee is false, many years ago i bought a rubbermaid patio set specifically because of its lifetime warranty . When i contacted rubbermaid for repairs or replacement i was told that they no longer make furniture . Fair enough but what about my LIFETIME WARRANTY .I was told that i was out of luck and would not be compensated at all sorry to bad . If they were no longer in business i would understand about not getting compensation ,but they are still in business . It is totally unfair and i feel cheated .WARNING do not trust any of the rubbermaid products they will not stand behind their products"
