Sinking ship

Distribution Center Supervisor (Former Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I worked at Blount International full-time for less than a year

ProsThere was no upside to the job. There was no structure, The goal for the day was always changed dureing the day.

ConsThe company is bleeding out with temp labor. Their communication to mamgement staff is lacking. They have no foundation to build up the comapny. All their management staff was hired after they bought 3 companies and moved to a new building. They had no plan in place on how they wanted to complete a move let alone 3 new acquisitions. After 8 months into the move they still have 0 standard operating procedures and are basically winging it.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo build your policies and procedures and manage your people through them.

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