Former Employee - Inspector/Packer

Pros

Decent pay for the amount of work required

Cons

Loud, typical factory environment. 7 week rotational schedule where you are required to work on weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The inspector/packer is often roped into doing the job of machine operators. Machine operators are paid more and should be expected to fix machines promptly and without hesitation.

    Pros

    If you live in the Mason area it is probably the best employer. Company promotes from within and rewards tenure. A great place for non-degreed/unskilled workers to ascend in career as there doesn't appear to be an obvious focus degrees and training for the roles available.

    Cons

    The company appears to reward ONLY tenure. This had lead to many people reaching management levels that they themselves are unqualified for and would not have reached at other companies. Company doesn't pay well and it's apparent with the talent in place (low tier pay gets you low tier talent), which leads to a bloated organization. Very inefficient, poor communication, no cross-functional teamwork to speak of. These things lead to poor decisions and copious amounts of rework that could be avoided if the decision makers had the talent or foresight to recognize their impact. Company is reactive in nature and already behind competitors in markets that aren't foam.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are truly concerned with the success of this company repatriate and take a more active role in the management of it. Rid it of the employees that don't add value and reduce the amount of internal complexity. You're making cups not cars. Also stop forcing the foam model into other segments or you business. They are all different and won't be successful until you treat them as such.
