Great place to work if you need some cash, don't mind manual labor, and look for a better job once you're hired.

Order Filler (Former Employee) Marianna, FL

ProsGreat benefits. Competitive pay. Friendly upper-management. Friendly co-workers (out of 500+ people, 10 might be unfriendly). Production pay.

ConsPoor equipment. Work environment works against you. Poor retention. Dangerous work environment. Departments don't try to work together like they should.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlan the work schedule better and try to have more effect on what is decided for your facility on a corporate level. Alot of the issues you face are ones you can stop from ever occurring. I also feel that it's unfair of you to ask so much of your workers when you know that there are several factors hindering them from meeting their Argent goals. Especially when those hindrances are ones you are more than happy to ignore. Remain friendly and close to your workers. Your attitudes and the way you treat your workers like friends or equals is probably the only thing keeping most people there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
