    Very disappointed is saying it nicely.

    Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) Roanoke, TX

    ProsGood pay and benefits. There are some tenured employees there that do show a commitment to helping others and the company.

    ConsToo many hours worked. Not enough skilled employees. If in management, you work on your days off at home with a company provided laptop. Not a team environment. Key positions don't require a degree, which in turn place unskilled and untrained individuals in those key positions. Turnaround is very high.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain your employees better. Be more involved with your employees. Walk around the facility and get to know your employees to help with their concerns and issues.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strong company and great presence in marketplace.

    Accounts Receivable Supervisor (Former Employee)

    ProsNice environment with co-workers. Company experienced tremendous growth which allowed insight to industry and operations. If opportunities are taken, you can learn a lot about the industry from various perspectives.

    ConsManagement tends to panic and look for scapegoat when things go wrong. Some of their long term employees are the biggest problems yet remain on staff. Pay was lagging behind others in industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not view every situation superficially, dig deeper. When taking on new projects or making agreements with customers that require innovation, think the situation through and ensure there is an understanding as to what needs to be done to accomplish the goal. They are too quick to jump without understanding the true challenge.

    Enlightening Night Shift

    Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) Paducah, KY

    ProsGood stepping stone. Excellent Benefits. When your in, your in. Job security is there if you fit in. Redundancy within to keep everything in check. There are many great people working to keep everything going. Bad apples are kept to a minimum.

    ConsWork load and times vary. Sometimes Greatly. You never know when your going to have to pull a 12 hr shift or just work 7 hrs. Sometimes it conflicts with the scheduling of others or days planned off. Although it is, what it is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow changes to settle, before making more changes.
