Pros – Pay is fair, when there was profit sharing it was a nice bonus.
Cons – They treat people like cattle. Was forced to keep impending layoff's from employees. Company didn't care how shift changes and layoff's would affect peoples lives and gave people no notice. People who were forced to change shifts were only given 1 day to determine if they could arrange their lives to do so. This was very unfair to people who needed day care, etc. They could have let people know weeks in advance that their schedule was going to change. Poor poor leadership and middle management level. There were people who were verbally abusive to people and HR or their boss would say "oh that's just how he is". Instead those people should be let go, but because they lack good leadership in that mid level of management these people continue work there.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Good benefits and pay, great bosses, good safety rules, diverse team members, good ethics.
They even did various rewards and games to keep employees motivated to be safe and healthy.
Cons – We had to work twelve hour days with only one 20 minute lunch. Also the twelve hour days were weird rotating shifts, one week it was Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, the next week it was Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. And standing/walking on cement the whole shift.
Advice to Senior Management – Reopen plant and rehire us back and give two twenty minute breaks. Plus a restart of the quarterly bonuses would be nice.
Pros – Solid company, good pay and benefits opportunity to advance.The employees have a voice in some of the decision making and their voices are heard. Management takes notice of a job well done.
Cons – Some of the big impact decisions on employees are last minute, no chance to make adjustments in your schedule. We had many different shift changes and they were communicated to us last minute
Advice to Senior Management – More open communication with what can be shared, and more advance notice when things are going to affect general population of plant
