1-The lighting fixtures instead of being correctly manufactured they were hastily put together with missing components such as screws, rivets and safe wiring. Quantity not quality was the way of the world at Selux as per Plant Manager Randy Adams.
2-The actually working environment was atrocious with no air circulation in the building. Temperatures reached 110 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the plant. During my employment I asked one of the maintenance employees how much realistically it would cost the company to run a climate controlled system per month and he said with the hundreds of solar panels on the roof a realistic number would be between 8-10 thousand dollars a month. The laughable part of this was that being a member of the manufacturing department we were given every morning print outs of the days total sales margin and NEVER was it under $60,000 a day!!!! This goes to show where this companies human values are. You don't have to travel to China or Tijuana to find sweat shop hell holes when you have Selux right here in the Hudson Valley.
3-Selux also focuses on lies and false hopes for you during your interview. Mr Adams had promised me a lead position upon my interview in which I showed great interest. However after bending over backwards to show my interest in the position he ended up hiring someone off the street lol.
4-Selux hires temps from Ethan Allen as well as Man Power and claims after 3 months you will be evaluated where you will be kept or let go. The honest truth is that Selux waits nearly 8 months to give you full employment. However there are many times where people just show up as full time employees, its quite the magic trick :-)
5-Selux manufacturing employees fall under the guise that they are protected by the union shop located on the premises however that is quite a fair bit of malarkey. Never once has the union shop defended it's members against write ups given by the company Selux. The union hall teabags the company on a daily basis.
