    Over ten years with this company. My reward? Got laid off in the worst economy we've seen since the Great Depression

    Pros

    Great people (the ones who actually work there, not management).

    Cons

    They have laid off so many people I imagine whoever is left has had to pick up the slack. You're always wondering when they're going to 'restructure' again. Pay is below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your faithful servants with large annual raises and bonuses instead of budgeting all the money for yourself.

    At the beginning, before the investment groups took control, it was a terrific company to work for.

    I worked at Arclin

    Pros

    They offer a 401(k), they also have a crummy medical and dental plan (hey, they're owned by the Canadians now, which is the same as being owned by Obama and his group of Socialists). Other than that there is very little to say that is positive.

    Cons

    The company is at least 1/2 the size it was when I started. Over the years different investment groups have bought and sold and squeezed what they could from the company. The remaining employees spend a lot of their time looking over their shoulder and trying to shine their own star so they can stay employed. Since the company is a fraction of it's former size, there is little to no room for advancement. It is a company trying to survive in a dying industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow some balls and manage by best practices, not fear.

    Arclin Moncure should be your last resort.

    I worked at Arclin

    Pros

    Great people in operations. Flexible work schedule (12 hour swing shifts). Pay is great for the area, but as a new operator you will most likely be making more money than operators who have been there for years, so don't tell anyone how much you make.

    Cons

    The ratio of supervision to operators is 1 to 1. A shift consists of no more than 4 to 5 operators. Monday thru Friday, four supervisors work day shift, and they each have their own agenda. Supervisors do not communicate to one another, so they each push their agenda with no regard for one another, or what is going on in the day to day operations. Operators recieve little to no support from management regarding mechanical issues, unless it is an absolute necessity to the job. The plant manager said Arclin, Moncure would be run like a dictatorship. If you do end up going there, do not voice concerns or opinions that go against management. They will not be tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe it is a mistake to hire outside the company to fill a supervisor position. Supervisors are meant to lead and be someone the operators can turn to for help in any situation in the plant. When an operator has to train a supervisor in the day to day activities, and take the reigns in an emergency situation because supervision doesn't know how to respond, what kind of leadership is that. Supervisors should always be hired from operations, period. It doesn't take a degree to supervise and lead men in the right direction. It does take an advanced knowledge of all the operating systems in the plant, as well as experience in running those systems. It brings much order to a situation, knowing the man supervising you knows what he is doing. Not because he read it somewhere, or saw it done one time, but because for years he was in it and knows everything about it.

    I worked at Arclin full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I can't find anything positive to say about Arclin. However when they used to be Dynea the company was a great place to work. No work life balance.

    Cons

    Very poor moral, poor benefits, poor management, low pay and too many bean counters that nit pick on a $0.50 parc meter travel expense and limit how many cups of coffee you are allowed to expense during your business trip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing and stop demoralizing your troops!

    Wake up! People are not numbers to crunch. They work hard to help the bottom line and they are under appreciated.
