It was a good place to start

Production Group Leader (Current Employee)

ProsIt was a good place to start right out of college. Good bonuses, good atmosphere, learned a lot that enabled me to move on to a bigger/better job elsewhere

ConsWorked 55-60+ hours each week for a $40,000 salary. All of my employees made way more per year than I did since I didn't get paid overtime. Way too much demand for the amount they are willing to pay. Guess that explains the high turnover. Other than that though, good place to work!

Advice to Senior ManagementAllow salaried employees to comp back hours over 45 per week. Or pay them what a 60 hour week is worth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
