    I can honestly say that this is one of the worst places I've ever worked.

    Pros

    I am sure there are some but right now I honestly can think of none of them. I guess a good thing would be that it's pretty easy to get a job here. This is where BP Staffing service sends most everyone who needs a job and doesn't mind factory work.

    Cons

    Management on all levels needs to be completely overhauled! That's the best place to start. If they got rid of all the bad decision makers at the top and held people who make bad decisions accountable, that would help this place immensely! Also there needs to be better disciplining of those who steal, lie, and cheat the system there. Corruption at this place is rampant. If you say something about it then you are looked at as the "bad guy". I have worked in 3 other factories before this one and in all honesty this has to be the worst one there is.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers. Find out why there is such a high turnover rate here. Find out what you need to do to keep the good workers and get rid of the bad. Stop pushing the good people out the door. Take a good look at what's really going on with your supervisors and if necessary make changes. Take a firm line when it comes to those who are making this an awful place to work.


  2. Very fair company, lots of good opportunities
