Good benefits. I enjoy working with many of the salaried and hourly associates as most have a great attitude. The production environment at GST is continually changing and as a manager I spend much of my time on my feet solving problems (which I enjoy). Hourly associates may find their positions tedious and repetitious . Pay and compensation seem to be average or slightly above average given the job and task requirements.
If you're an hourly associate, hopefully you are looking for overtime- you can plan on working 10 hrs/day, M-F and 8hrs on SAT. Lower level management should expect over 60 hours a week and to work at least every other Saturday (Myself and other recent hires found this out the hard way- while interviewing we were misled as to how many hours we'd be working as our interviewers downplayed the work schedule in a disappointingly dishonest manner). Mid and upper management only work 8 hrs/day, 5 days a week. Many of the mid level managers don't have college degrees and appear to be struggling. Some hourly associates don't speak English.
Advice to Management
Focus on honesty and developing trust with direct reports and hourly associates. The overall disconnect between management, first line supervisors, and hourly associates is staggering. Work to improve the dramatically low trust environment that has been created over the years. Stop talking about "leadership" and start acting like "leaders". If you tell your associates to work during the weekend, show some initiative and come to work as well.
