Great company to get a foot in the door.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Huntington, WV

ProsI enjoyed 99% of the people I worked with on a daily basis. The work was interesting, but became repetitive after a while. Communication in my actual department was better than average.

ConsPay grade for a salary position in my field was lower than the national average. The pay increases over time are very minimal, and it's sad to see the people who have worked there for 20+ years settling for so little. Company wide communication was very poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of upgrading the signs or parking lots, the equipment throughout the facility should be upgraded vastly to perform more efficiently. With all the standards we had to meet for customers, it was surprising to know how poorly the equipment was maintained. A lot of bandages were used for temporary fixes when things should have been fixed permanently... however in most cases this meant there would be a temporary shutdown to that department, which meant no production. But in the long run, the quality of the material and the average down time probably would have shown better after a temporary shutdown and major upgrade.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
