    Pros

    Good rate of pay. Coworkers are genuine and like to assist. Company culture can be fun and unique.

    Cons

    Management is not always concerned with stress levels or work level of hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Meetings and educational classes seem to be important however, someone can be promoted because they do a good job...does not mean they will make a good manager. If an hourly person wants to move up or top a different dept. it will not happen if dept. management.doesn't agree. It just won't happen.

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, profit sharing and pension (pension I found out not great), bonus but NOT based on work.

    Cons

    Managers are never forthcoming and lie all the time (or change the rules to suit themselves), Hourly people are looked down upon, bonuses are based on how well the supervisors like you (saw time and time again).

    Advice to Management

    QUIT LYING!! Promote from within (like you say you do). Start treating hourly staff as if they matter and are equal (treat them as you would like to be treated). Quit bases bonus on whether you like someone but on how they preformed their job. Keep managers more informed as to how to handle employees.

    Pros

    -The fiscal stability of this company provides peace of mind
    -Hourly pay grades are higher than you'd expect
    -Retirement/Pension plan is impressive
    -Flex scheduling is useful
    -Employees can purchase from the warehouse (at member cost = ~10% markup, not actual cost)
    -Numerous employee discounts from local/national businesses
    -Profit sharing is a nice bonus

    Cons

    -Fiscal conservatism stifles innovation
    -Employees are all "lifers" which means opportunity for advancement can be limited
    -Ultra religious environment
    -Dress code is business casual
    -Attendance policy is very strict
    -A very cliquey company....if you're not in the clique, you're not going to advance
    -Salaried employees get preferential treatment

    Advice to Management

    Show more respect to your hourly employees. Too often your "efforts" to connect with us come across as insincere.

    Pros

    good wage, 40 hr work week, profit sharing, acceptable insurance plan

    Cons

    RSC manager is an admitted "Libertarian" what this means: since 2007:
    Labor force has declined by about 25 to 30 people. Members added: between 40 to 45. members now allowed to order throughout the day. The lack of replacing the people who left has resulted in a extravagant decline in morale and increased demand of production. The manager is more concerned with production, rather than quality. To quote a fired employee, "We are just a number." Supervisors simply sit in front of a computer all day, attending trivial meetings, and place current production sheets on tables, in front of people, on there break, also known as antagonize. The CEO of the company should not consult the American budget, specifically welfare recipients, when he has enacted a tea party approach, which is better known as Darwinism. Consider hiring those people you put down and inmprove the unemployment rate.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the current "libertarian" or "tea party" approach and replace with people whom have degrees in business management.
