    Pros

    This facility provides jobs to minorities and women when other sites deny them.

    Cons

    This company provides no package compensation and the pay is only minimum wage with no benefits. Time off, vacations are difficult to obtain. The training is minimal and expectations are high.

    Advice to Management

    Make breaks, lunch and excused time off easier to obtain with no penalty attached to time off requests.

    Pros

    None!!!! There is nothing good about this company.

    Cons

    The bathrooms are filthy. Not that hey are not cleaned every 3 hour, but they stink 5 minutes later. They are old, dilapidated sis pots with eight coats of paint over 20 year old stinky fixtures that are falling apart and disgustingly gross. The break room tables are over 20 years old and have three or four layers of GUM, yes gum stuck all over the under side and the seats as well. Management could care less about their employees, and treat everyone horribly. Everyone who works there hates it, and wants to get out. Managers and supervisors have no clue how to treat or manage people. Incompetence throughout Human Resources, upper, middle management filters right down to supervisors... Awful, horrible people. The place is filed with OLD, Old,m old, and older machinery that does not work.

    Advice to Management

    Ever hear of a employee reward program? How about job enrichment? Try putting something good about employees in their employee folders instead of every little little thin you can find to write people up on.. Have some assumption of liability for the awful working conditions, and problems that you have created.

  5. They do not spend money to keep up with the times, using technology that is out dated and cannot be supported by mfr

    Pros

    Can not think of a good reason

    Cons

    Politics within management, good old boys type of managers. Let the people under you do there job no micro managing

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Get rid of 60% of the manager's, to many chiefs. Have monthly meetings on the state of the company, and not keep secrets about new customers.

  6. I was kept on a temp for one year and eight months even though I did twice as much work as most of the full timers.

    Pros

    It is climate controlled, witch is unusual for such a large place. Also, much of the work is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between lower management and team leaders. Company does not seem to give a crap about its employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Don't let your good employees languish miserably under the thump of bad supervisors and team leads.

    Pros

    New owners, improved cash flow, Great people to work with, stability for full time Cinram staff. Good Benefits

    Cons

    few or negligible raises, not much advancement opportunity, no vacation for a year (can't take it as you accrue it). Old technology.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership is above average, keeps you in the know, update the old equipment that is decades old in some cases to prevent severe down time and panic production situations.

    Pros

    Honestly, the only pro is staying busy, however, that only lasts shortly through fourth quarter.

    Cons

    Lack of work, days drag on, pay is low and fixed unless you're a company star, not a promoting environment, a lot of immature unambitious workers, well..it's a warehouse job.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with full-time employees, don't send full-time to other departments before you send temps, take time and invest in your workers to get the best.
