    People care about the employees

    Cons

    Rate of change is very high. Uncertainty day to day is stressful. Very large company, with typical politics.

    Pros

    Ok pay but far from good. If you don't like your manager, they will probably be gone in a few months.

    Cons

    Don't count on the training you need, you'll have to get that yourself. Shifts screw each other over just to make themselves look better because they only focus on the numbers that count. They make changes to departments and then don't follow through with all the details and leave you without the proper tools to do the job. Your told one thing but then get thrown under the bus. If your not a favorite, then sooner or later your job will be given to someone else. They rather fire someone than give them an opportunity to fix the problem. Your given goals but not the resources to complete them. You either screw over the next shift or fall short of the goal. You can't trust management there as they will stab you in the back as soon as they can. I know most supervisors there are scared that if they make any sort of mistake they will be fired. They're told that mistakes happen, we're human, but then they fire them as soon as they do make a mistake. My advice, don't work there! Hourly employees are in good shape if you don't have an accident. And yes! They do whatever they can to keep the union out, including showing their own propaganda against unions. If you management, don't count on consistent policies, actions from any of the senior management team. Don't trust what your told because what happens to you is based off of how much you suck up to them, not what is in the company policy.

    Advice to Management

    There are policies for a reason. Go by them and not change them based on the situation and how much you like that person. Work together with the other shifts instead of screwing them over. Learn to make a team environment. Learn to develop the people that work for you, not just fire them. Especially stop playing favorites, because everyone sees it. Most of the supervisors you have, are only still there because they can't find another job in this economy. Very few like it and I bet most will leave when they have the chance.
