Pros

Vast and varied experience opportunities, great pay and benifits

Cons

Lack of ability to make significant changes unless you are a GM for the site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Dont step over those you give leadership to in an effort to micromanage in the classic "command and control." Follow MBM at all times.

    Pros

    great benefits which take place almost immediately

    Cons

    Watched a promising man get hired in Maintenance as a Millwright. The man told us during the interviews he had no experience as a millwright, supervisor wanted to hire him anyway. The man did have machining experience. Man was hired and was a fast learner, came in on time and stayed late when asked. After 20 days on the job, GP decided they wanted someone with more experience. "Transferred" him to the line along with a cut in pay by 6/hr and a cut in hours by 10. Seems a horrible way to treat someone. In the old days, they would have never done that. They would have finished training him and had a hand-trained, loyal worker. These characteristics don't seem to matter any longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change your mind about who you hire 20 days into their job. Decide who and what you want from the beginning. Realize that employee loyalty can't be beat.
