    This would be a good place to work if the managers didn't act like they OWN you instead of you worked for them.

    Pros

    The benifits package is pretty good.
    The schedule wouldn't be bad if they stuck to it.
    There is a lot to learn in this enviroment.

    Cons

    You are treated as if you are property and not a person.
     If you have a family, they are not considered as being an important part of your life. You will hear some managers go as far as to say that "this is my family" and decisions for scheduleing and Forced Overtime are based on this philosophy. And if you dare try to defend your family time, you will be told that you can "Quit if you don't like it".
    Problems that arise are always used as an opportunity to assign blame. The supervisors have been instructed to push responsibility downward and to hold the lowest person in the chain accountable no matter the reason.
    There is a total disregard by supervision for safety regulations. Production is all that matters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the managers who are stuck in the mindset that they need to terrorize and harrass people to get them to do their jobs. The anamosity that is being created is making people Not want to be there.

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent. The pay is reasonable. At one time there was a lot of over time available.

    Cons

    This company talks about its values but in no way lives them. This is the most negative environment I have ever been in. Management does not care about the opinions of the employees no matter how long they have been here and how knowledgable they are. The 12 hour shift work is very hard on the body and home life. Shift work is proven to take years off of your life.
    Even with a union to protect the employees from out of control management, you are constantly in fear of disipline and suspension. The company disiplines for every little thing and then ties up the union with the grevance process. On the surface safety is number one. In reality production is number one, two and three then safety may be considered. Safety will only take pressident when it does not effect production. When hired you will be told about the great profit share program the company has. Once you start you will realize that the company does not and will not tell you how this is calculated and that it generally is less than an extra days pay very 3 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees.
    Spend more time on the production floor so you have a clue what is happening.
    Make plans in advance and stick to them.
    Get it out of your head that all of the employees are here to work as little as possible and just for the pay check (this does exist but it has been created by managment).
