    A fiscally conservative and stable company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Fort Wayne, IN

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

    Tea party manager

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Montgomery, NY

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

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

    Low Pay- Good Benefits- Chasm Between Haves and Have Nots

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Fort Wayne, IN

    ProsReally strong benefit plan- they try to make up for minimal weekly pay with carrot of good retirement. May work for some.

    ConsPay for most is well below average, except for select management team members who make out like bandits. We are talking exceptional - I mean extravagant- differentials in compensation between the select few and the masses.

    HR department is poorly managed, evasive, self-interested and non-supportive of those outside "the clique". To those who cross the HR manager: your time is limited- she will work behind the scenes against you- the one thing she is very good at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStart being honest with yourselves about how much better you can and should pay others in the organization- you know how big the discrepancies are, and it's extraordinary. If average employees knew- they would revolt. This is a cash rich company, and can do so much better in this regard.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
