    Horrible

    Current Employee - Plant Worker  in  Cartersville, GA
    Current Employee - Plant Worker in Cartersville, GA

    Pros

    At this point, I can't think of any.

    Cons

    If you are on 2nd or 3rd shift, good luck making it to 1st.

    Plant workers reach level 3 and the vast majority will never receive another raise.

    They will schedule 7 day work weeks at the drop of a hat, even weeks immediately preceding Christmas.

    Equipment (especially computers and lift trucks) are left in disrepair for months at a time. No one is on staff at the plant to keep the computers working.

    If you ask for any kind of understanding for a particular situation, forget it. You can work here 5 years or be fresh out of orientation, it doesn't matter to them.

    Employees are merely files in drawer, numbers to be cut and necessary evils to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees feel it when you consider them to be no more than an expense. Your reward for a year of profitability, Pride Day (actually 1 1/2 hour), is terrible - a very few get a little prize and most leave with nothing. It's insulting. If you want to show your appreciation, write checks; do not set up a ring toss.

    You have cut labor yet spend money on ridiculous programs and positions.

    Show us a little respect by scheduling more thoughtfully and do not pretend to show appreciation with Pride Day or food.

    Pros

    Very Good people to work with. Generally competitive benefits

    Cons

    Shaky Mgt last few years after the retirement of Mr. Shaw. Far too much in fighting and politics with haphazard policy changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead and manage the way you expect your management group. to do so. Many senior executives in no way do so.
