Eaton Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

Eaton Corporation plc is an Irish-domiciled multinational power management company with 2018 sales of $21.6 billion, founded in the United States with corporate headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and operational headquarters in Beachwood, Ohio. Eaton has approximately 95,000 employees and sells products to customers in more than 175 countries.

In February 2020 wrote the piece below By John Breslin about Eaton Corporation facing serious allegations of racial harassment and retaliation

Eaton Corporation, and an individual employee, are named as defendants in a suit filed by plaintiff Derrick Brown, an African American who has worked at the company's plants in Troy and Highland. Brown, who filed claims of violations under the Illinois Human Rights Act in Madison County Circuit Court Jan. 17, claims he was called the n-word by a fellow worker, who is also accused of referring to slavery, a lynching event, and of saying his job was to get rid of black workers from the Troy facility. Eaton Corporation, which is headquartered in Ireland largely for tax reasons, did not respond to a request for comment. According to the suit, Brown first worked at the Highland facility but was transferred to Troy after he claimed to have been subjected to a profane outburst from a fellow worker unhappy at the job the plaintiff was doing. At the Troy plant, Brown was assigned to work and train under the individual defendant, according to the complaint. It is alleged by Brown that he was "routinely" referred to as a n-word. He further alleges that the defendant said, "It's my job to get rid of all the blacks in the Troy facility." Slavery was also mentioned, it is claimed by the plaintiff, who also said he was once asked to provide music for an event, which he was then told would be a "lynching." Further, Brown states that he was not provided proper training.

Experienced my manager crying many times throughout the day on my very first week here. I felt like crying too after a while. Many staff breakdown because of how overworked they are. Too big a company to have any impact. No space for growth."

"I worked there as a contractor(aka) temp. All temps had to wear these hideous safety orange vests. We stood out like a sore thumb. We were not allowed to participate in employee functions.

Pre-Commissioning Team Leader (Former Employee) says

"Been working for Eaton and all I can say is STAY AWAY. Full of false promises fake reactions and the money are not ridiculously bad in fact the pay is insultingly bad. Do not even dare to hope for a better rate once you in. So, no support at all, no progression, insulting money (considering you have experience). Toxic if you have the eyes to see it."
