    Hot work, communication between managment is less than desirable, failing systems that need to be updated, renovations needed in areas of the plant that has been the same way or ran the same way since it opened its doors.

    Management doesn't take advice. They are hostile, arrogant and dismisses any kind of input >dusty stevens example

    Pros

    They give you a minimum paycheck on Wednesdays but you can not pick it up before 2 p.m. at the Guardhouse. You have basic healthcare and not much more.,

    Cons

    no communication, lack of committment from management for long term of facility, poor management decisions, continually stepping on the collective bargained agreement, lack of respect for employees and their families, production before safety mentality

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are an assett and at Hawesville on a daily basis they are treated like doormats it would be nice to work in a facility that appreciated the employees for the millions and millions of dollars they are making for the fat cats in Monterey, California enabling them to build their newest smelters in Iceland
