Good pay, Excellent 401(k) & Profit Sharing, Outstanding Insurance

Foreman (Current Employee)

ProsThe company keeps growing, especially after buying Griffin. The work seems to keep increasing at all plants, this translates into a very steady job. The pay is really good, especially for low skill positions. They match retirement contributions and have profit sharing. The health insurance has become outstanding.

ConsThe work is very physical with long hours and harsh environments; hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It can be a dirty and smelly environment. Also, management has earned a bad reputation as being non-responsive, defensive and malicious. In fairness, I see that changing incrementally.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to change the rendering and recycling culture from monarchical leadership toward teamwork and inclusion; your people can really help you achieve your goals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
