A former Yard dog driver from Martin, TN shares his/her bad experience working for MTD Products in a review posted by INDEED: "I worked there as a full-time employee for over ten yrs. Was grateful to work at the factory-like that one but in the last 5 yrs, it has gone to the dogs. Was drove out the door by lies and backstabbing management. They made up lie after lie and finally had my fill of it and gave my notice. Left there over a yr ago and never looked back. Have a better paying and environment job now"
