"Terrible wages for working all hours. Bosses always on your back for no reason. Don't care about risk assessments etc. Spent months doing 2/3 man jobs entirely on my own" A former employee wrote in a review.

A production team leader shared in indeed that the Management are bullies and that the work atmosphere is the worst he has ever experienced. "Workers in the factory are the only positive part of the entire place. Director and operations manager are dinosaurs that need to be removed from the position asap" he said.

Communicatieadviseur (Former Employee) says

"Ik zou iedereen afraden hier te solliciteren. Het hogere management creëert een angstcultuur, er is nooit ergens geld voor en dat terwijl het financieel prima gaat met het bedrijf en er voldoende buffers zijn. Deze buffers gaan linea recta naar de aandeelhouders. De aandeelhoufer is heilig, het personeel slechts een middel. Je werkt in een kantoor waar sinds de jaren '80 geen euro in is gestoken. Het schimmel zit aan de muren, kozijnen lekken. In de zomer is het er bloedheet, maar alleen het hogere management heeft een airco gekregen. Iedereen die kon worden ontslagen in de Corona crisis is onmiddellijk naar huis gestuurd. Bovendien weinig groeimogelijkheden. Geen leuke werkplek voor mensen met ambitie."

ayudante general de mantenimiento (Former Employee) says

"Inicias trabajando para una agencia no se cuanto tiempo deba de pasar para que te den la planta yo fui víctima del covid 19 por culpa de la pandemia decidieron despedirme lo cual no ví congruente ya que nunca falte ni llegué tarde y siempre cumplí y apoye las labores fueran o no fueran mi responsabilidad. Cons: Cuando vas a algún montaje no hay horario de salida"

tecnico instalador (Current Employee) says

"es una empresa buena pero con mala organisacion y se instalan bandas trasportadoras y o se entregan alas empresas Cons: la mala organisacion y el pago quincenal"

Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) says

"There's a buddy system here, if you don't go to church or in their circle of friends, good luck in advancing! They ask one day ahead, to work overtime late Friday and early Saturday morning. Cons: Management and Culture"

Stage d'Assistante de Gestion en Comptabilité (Former Employee) says

"encadrement agréable, tuteurs efficaces et compréhensifs Cons: la distance"

"I worked at Forbo Cons: Dirty job poor housekeeping practices"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I worked at Forbo full-time Cons: Upper management was all about promoting who they know, rarely listened to the information the sales people were getting from customers. Let people earn what they deserve"

Operator says

"I worked at Forbo Cons: Very unsafe. Little attention was paid to safety, first responders--- there were none. No training in the area of fire prevention. Horrible plant ventilation, management uses money to spy and snoop instead of using the money to help organize safety programs. And dont be a minuet late or they give you grief even though you walk 3 blocks from parking to plant."


"I worked at Forbo Cons: There was zero community within the company. There were zero celebrations for holidays or events. The build did not even have a communal room for the employees to meet in and socialize. Most people ate lunch at their desks."

Former Employee - Customer Service says

"I worked at Forbo full-time for more than a year Cons: corporate environment slow and demotivating"

Former Employee - Sales Executive says

"I worked at Forbo full-time for more than a year Cons: A piece of the pie, I mean the market is not available at all for a new comer. Dont even try. All the key accounts or A grade architects or large scale projects you may have known from your previous job, will never be given to you."


"I worked at Forbo Cons: No career progression and needs better org structure"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at Forbo full-time for more than 5 years Cons: no possibilities of career or promotion from within"


"I worked at Forbo Cons: No clear vision on IT side, bad performance review methods"

Nancy Br says

"One piece of the quarter round had slit like scratches the entire length. I don’t think it was done in transport as heavy as the cylinder package was. Appeared to be old scratches"

Ryan Magid says

"I still have not received the product Which was ordered almost 1 month ago I will never order from you guys again And I had to get the part elsewhere Have a good day Try harder next time"

Patricia Pangburn says

"It took forever for me to get the product I ordered. I will never use this company again, nor recommend them. Had to reschedule installation due to not getting order in a timely fashion!"

Tiffany Danner says

"Horrible service. I ordered the piece of flooring and the night it shipped it was marked damaged. That Thursday I called and inquired about it because they hadn’t shipped a new piece out. Then again the next Monday and was informed that getting the piece to me in a timely manner was not their job. Definitely won’t be buying from them again."
