Ping (golf) Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
PING is an American sports equipment manufacturing company based in Phoenix, Arizona. Ping was founded by Karsten Solheim, following a career as an engineer at the General Electric company. In 1959, he started making putters in his garage in Redwood City, California. In 1967, he resigned from his job at General Electric to develop the PING company.
Dennis shares his upsetting experience on consumeraffairs.com, "The weights in my Ping i20s keep coming out. The third time it happened on the same 4 clubs the company wouldn't even return my call. I called twice... How in the hell can I say anything positive about Ping, when I call and they say that shouldn't happen and they'll look into it and call me back. BUT I NEVER GET A RETURN CALL. Stay away from Ping!!! I'm sorry to say that was my third set of Pings and it will be my last."
Assembly Line Operative (Former Employee) says"Genuinely the worst place I have ever worked for, due especially to the poor management, they do not follow health and safety protocol, their site is filthy, their staff are poorly treated and penalized for so much as talking to a person next to them. Imagine being a robot arm in a really low quality assembly line, that robot arm will be treated better than youNoneToo many to list"
Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"Words cannot describe how badly I was treated in the end I started with best intentions and enjoyed my first 2 1/2 years as I grew my area slowly and steadily Then unfortunately my Boss decided to accuse me of something I didn’t do - my honesty and faith I put in him was wasted and cost me my job. You could not betray or let someone down in any bigger way. The whole process they then put me through was degrading and embarrassing - they did not want to listen . The company is run by a Bully and it unfortunately showed in the end that all managers are scared of him - just how he likes it . Dont go near this company unless you are prepared to stay quiet and accept this culture . A real shame as the product is very good i trusted him to support me and he turned it back on me and for some reason used it to make himself look better to his Boss and forced me out if the company. This I found out has happen to many past employees some of whom have successful taken the MD to court and won - although they keep that quiet My advice steer clear.They make great productsToo long to mention"
Ex worker (Former Employee) says"Place is full of bullies! Supervisors and management back the bullies all the way! A lot of favouritism!! For ping employees over agency staff! Very corruptNonFull of bullies!"
Factory Operative (Former Employee) says"If you can handle being talked to like your 5 years old and was just born yesterday. Then this is the place for you. Stay away if you have any kind of mind of your own as you will be looked at as a trouble maker. A few members of staff will tell stories about you to the supervisor's if they don't like you or say something they don't like. It is a power thing, That ping lets them get away with. I have seen a few people get finished because of such behaviour. Could be a great place to work, If it wasn't for poor management of the factory floor. And all the snitches, Snitching because it gives them power. Money is alright "IF" you are lucky enough to be taken on full time.... After 2 YEARS of agency work. Pro's.... Struggling here Con's.... Too many to list"
Assembly (Former Employee) says"This is a good starter job or just a job to get you by for a while but overall experience was good first couple months. everyone’s constant negativity sucked the life out of me at this job feeling stressed just coming in. Higher ups ignoring glaring Problems within the work force. Good job to get you by terrible place to stay long term Company meetings, long breaks.Coworkers, rarely any benefits"
Customer Service (Former Employee) says"Amazing benefits- 2 bonus a year, private health care, private pension, good salary. It could be an amazing place to work but it has gone downhill massively. The wrong people are in management and supervisor roles, no support when needed and HR is a complete joke no empathy or support at all. Lots of bullying and favouritism going on and nothing gets done about it when reported.Benefits, work colleaguesHr, no support"
Security Officer (Former Employee) says"The company only cares about the bottom line and if you don't work in production, making products to sell, youre not important.DiscountsEverything else"
General Assembly / machine operator (Former Employee) says"The job itself far as to work was very motivational influential and easy to do I love the job far as people very rude racist mean nasty and I faced daily discrimination"
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) says"The HR department leaves little to the imagination. Without one person in that department the company would be a success but unfortunately it will continue to fail"
Production Operative (Former Employee) says"Great place to work but takes too long to be taken onto full time books and drop you without any notice. On site canteen is very good and subsidised to affordable prices."
Production Worker (Current Employee) says"Great company to work with. Good leadership and benefits. The company helps you with many things that is happening around you and they work with you. The company is very great with their employees."
