    Pros

    pay, benefits and good people to work with good hours for first shift in plastics easy to learn job fast and use of tools.

    Cons

    second shift plastics hours are killer for 4 days are 12 hour shifts and then a 5 hour shift, supervisors are horrible at supervising.

    Advice to Management

    send the managers back to learn how to treat their employees with respect and not de grade them, and make sure the 2nd shift and third shift get called off if bad weather is expected.

  2. Extremely unsatisfactory, they use you up, & then spit you out with no remorse.

    Pros

    There is a glimmer of hope that once some of the "good ol' boys" retire, there may be some positive change in culture and operations. There are some good employees, even a handful of great ones, but it is a shame that these people will struggle to introduce change.

    Cons

    Many employees in key positions are extremely unqualified. A 2-year technical degree is all that is required for the position of CEO and President. Unfortunately, this isn't even a joke. The story continues to be the same all of the way down through the ranks. Poor management decisions are made on a daily basis. Ideas that could improve profits, safety and morale are squashed instantly because that would mean "change", and "change is bad".

    Advice to Management

    A real close look needs to be taken at the overall approach with the business. One cannot simply continue to buy back stocks, hand out officer/director bonuses and forget about the people that made that profit possible. A vast majority of employees have lost hope and have given up trying. Many good employees have realized this and have left already. I see more of this happening in the near future.
