From Everything.Sucks

Polaris Inc. is an American manufacturer of motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV, and neighborhood electric vehicles. Polaris was founded in Roseau, Minnesota, USA, where it still has engineering and manufacturing. The company's corporate headquarters is in Medina, Minnesota. The company manufactured motorcycles through its Victory Motorcycles subsidiary until January 2017, and currently produces motorcycles through the Indian Motorcycle subsidiary, which it purchased in April 2011. Polaris produced personal watercraft from 1994–2004. The company was originally named Polaris Industries Inc. and was renamed in 2019 to Polaris Inc.

A former employee said this in a review “I have not been impressed with my time at Polaris. I'm still trying to figure out how the one thing they do good (tuition reimbursement) still never works out right. With only a semester to graduate, they have yet to give me a job off the line. I have applied for 11 internal jobs and had 3 interviews. Loads of experience and education but No offers!! No family time, we work 6 days a weeks."

Supervisor Metal Paint (Former Employee) says

"People in positions above their talent level. Very poor manufacturing practices. Perpetual learning curve due to high turnover. Complete lies to entice talented people to join the company. Cons: Good ole boy runs rampant. Zero possibility of advancement."

Machine Operator (Former Employee) says

"It ok place to work it’s something to do in the meantime management sucks they will let anybody lead but all an all the work isn’t hard clean environment pay is decent could pay a few dollars more seeing you make whole cars"

Material Handler (Current Employee) says

"No organization, terrible time management and no days off, worked the entire months of July August and the first half of September. It’s the 18th of September though and the foreseeable future is all work no play Cons: Everything else"

Painter (Former Employee) says

"Horrible Management Cons: Everything"

Opperator (Former Employee) says

Assembly (Current Employee) says

"I have not been impressed with my time at Polaris. I'm still trying to figure out how the one thing they do good (tuition reimbursement) still never works out right. With only a semester to graduate, they have yet to give me a job off the line. I have applied for 11 internal jobs and had 3 interviews. Loads of experience and education but No offers!! No family time, we work 6 days a weeks. Cons: -No outside life -no family time -underpaid -not a person just another number work 6/7 days a week, especially if you get sent home during the week a few times for no parts.. expensive cafe food"

Assembly Technician (Current Employee) says

"If you are single and have no friends or family you can do this and make some money. If you have a family or people you love, you will be so beat after a shift you won't see them and half the time you'll be picking up mandatory weekends to make up numbers because some part was out or the numbers changed or management says you are not doing enough. It is a place where you will rot and fester until you get out. They care only about the numbers, that is all you will ever be, and a number is easy to replace if you complain."

Manager at national level (Former Employee) says

"An organization which has so called code of conduct in place but they just don't follow it & make fun & fool of hardworking as well as honest people."

iSeries Administrator (Former Employee) says

"Manager was terrible. You were expected to work 60 hours a week and no thanks was given. Manager felt threatened by my expertise. I was laid off after I trained in 2 additional people."

Sub Assembler (Current Employee) says

"Horse bleep place to work, push you hard and you can't make a mistake. Force you to work Saturdays then send you home because no parts. My lead was a great guy production manager was a jack wagon who didn't know what he was doing, When he filled in he would make mistakes but if we did we were written up and to many you were fired 3 months and I said screw it after I was written up, and you don't get hired by Polaris you are a temp you might get kept on if your lucky. Don't waist your time go somewhere else Cons: Everything, but I did work with a few nice people"

Bend Technician (Former Employee) says

"Do not work here. You are just a number. They sacrifice safety for quantity. Good example an employee air lifted to a hospital because a crate fell on his head that was poorly put away by a over worked, stressed fork lift driver."

Line One Sub Assembly. (Current Employee) says

"Granted Polaris is a "start up" company but it is absolutely ridiculous that the mangers, supervisors, and HR are so caught up in sticking up for each other than for the actual employees that bust their cans 10 to 12 hours a day. You never know what time you will be getting off work from day to day because no matter how hard you work, you are ALWAYS behind schedule. They do NOT care about the employees what so ever. HR is the biggest issue with the plant. They have NO idea what to do or how to help with any problem. If you are not in the so called click out there you might as well not even be there. They let bad parts go out... Problems that are easily fixable are not because that may stop production for 5 minutes. You get two 12 minute breaks and one 30 minute lunch no matter how many hours are forced upon you that day. The vacation you work to build up is almost never granted because production is so far behind that one person cannot use their own vacation.... Most of the employees are straight out of high school without families. The members with families you might as well guarantee you will not be seeing them but on Sundays. It's a horrible and I mean horrible place to work period!!!! I have worked there from the day it opened until now and nothing has changed. Lies, lies, and more lies is all it is. They pay stinks, the benefits are pathetic, and the abuse and conduct out there is beyond ridiculous but if anything is said...you get punished for it for being the victim. I would rather flip burgers they to work for that miserable place. And every employee you talk to would Cons: The WHOLE plant is terrible From the upper man to the supervisors to the HR, NO ONE is for the actual employees."

Slave (Former Employee) says

"Will be docked you if your beyond your work space. Depending on supervisors and leads ,...if you have personal issues then they suck . Dont have personal issues,. Be a robot they like that! Be a zombie, they like that too! , be conformative , be a team!. Cons: Will cut your head off for 1 minute"

Welder (Former Employee) says

"Absolutely by far the worst company I’ve ever worked for! Management is clueless and doesn’t know how to run a company. If you work hard they treat you like trash. If your lazy and spend more time sucking up to upper management then this is the job for you. I came in early a few days before my shift started to help get the line up and running that much faster and the company manager actually got on to me and told me to not come in anymore before the shift starts. You build paid time off and sick leave but you might as well forget being able to use it. It’s often neglected and never approved or denied. The only way to get a day off is to call out and not show up. Don’t ignore the bad reviews like I did. Stray far away from this company and save yourself the headache! I’m almost positive anywhere else that is hiring would be a better option. There’s not enough money in the world to put up with how they treat you there. Cons: Everything"

Worker (Current Employee) says

"Management is clueless as they ( Polaris) is bringing their people which are just kids from Minnesota. Depressing place to work!! Run you been warned! Cons: Management has NO clue how to operate a company"

Lead Torque Specialist Line 1 (Former Employee) says

"Polaris is a horrible company to work for. They do not pay their employees a competitive wage. This year at the huntsville facility those eligible to receive their pay for promotion and yearly cost of living adjustment only received the pay for promotion. The same thing was done last year. That means someone just starting out made $.10 less than someone who had been there over a year. Cons: Poor management. Too much overtime due to no parts."

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) says

"people there are a**holes if you are not their friend your an enemy and you cant be friends with everyone cause they all have their own little groups...... this place is worse than high school"

Administrator (Former Employee) says

"Rude, aggressive management. Don't take responsibility for their issues. Blame you. Micro-managers, completely disorganized. No support, no development."

Assembly (Current Employee) says

"Don't even waste your time applying for this place. Management has no idea as to what they're doing. No motivation what so ever, and very low moral. Communication between management and operators is absolutely terrible, and the pay terrible. The only thing management cares about is the bonuses they get from production. I wouldn't wish this job on my worst enemy. Cons: Having to be there in general."

Quality Engineer (Former Employee) says

"no guidance of work required. easy access off highway Cons: shoe protection required to go to lunch room"
