    Definitely a growing company.

    HCM (Current Employee)

    ProsCasual dress, good benefits, solid business position. As long as one works hard, they will move up quickly. Senior management is easy to approach.

    ConsThe company has changed somewhat since purchasing Solo, and sometimes the growing pains can be difficult to deal with, especially as a legacy Dart employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget about the employees that have been here for years.

    Impressive culture, understands business

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Mission Statement and Company Values, not corporate America. Unbelievable opportunities, rewards from within. Exciting place to be in Mason, MI. Communication is Strong

    ConsMaturation process is slow and organizational capabilities are increasing daily.

    When you don't think it could get any worse, it does.

    Machine Operator (Current Employee)

    ProsUsed to be benefits, but even that is waning. More & more things taken away from us. Hard working PRODUCTION employees.

    ConsPoor leadership starting with the plant manager. Constantly feeding us lies. Benefits dwindling, but "You have to look at these new policies as a whole, not one by one". Work 12 hours, will only get 8 hours holiday pay. Have to pay company BACK when paid to do jury duty. Finally get personal days, oh, but wait...not paid & have to give at least a weeks notice. Bonus program a joke. No incentive to do good work. Mediocre employee gets same bonus as one who works their butt off. 24/7 plant, but all maintenance goes home by 4pm. More maintenance personel than machines, yet nothing runs well at all. Have cell phones to call in maintenance, but phones are left in maint. supervisor's office. If things are going good, "Boy, thanks to maintenance, we hit our numbers!" If things are bad..."Damn production!" Favortism runs rampant. Communication...what communication? Morale is the lowest we've ever seen. Only thing keeping people here is, lack of jobs in community.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVisit ALL your plants. Visit with the EMPLOYEES! Ask how they feel. Don't let upper management put their spin on things. If Bob Dart would guarantee that no jobs would be lost, he'd get an earful!

    A company that resists advancing in modern day culture.

    Account Manager (Current Employee) Mason, MI

    ProsI'm salary so I'm not treated like an animal.

    ConsPay is very little because they are headquartered in Mason Michigan and do not incorporate cost of living differences.
