I have been working at Viracon full-time

Pros

Company is big on the safety of their employees. Great health benefits and company matched 401k. Good support from other production supervisors. Profit sharing every three months.

Cons

No paid overtime for production supervisors. Production management expects big results everyday and will scream at you if it is not accomplished.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use some people skills to achieve the best from your employees.

    I worked at Viracon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay is fair, when there was profit sharing it was a nice bonus.

    Cons

    They treat people like cattle. Was forced to keep impending layoff's from employees. Company didn't care how shift changes and layoff's would affect peoples lives and gave people no notice. People who were forced to change shifts were only given 1 day to determine if they could arrange their lives to do so. This was very unfair to people who needed day care, etc. They could have let people know weeks in advance that their schedule was going to change. Poor poor leadership and middle management level. There were people who were verbally abusive to people and HR or their boss would say "oh that's just how he is". Instead those people should be let go, but because they lack good leadership in that mid level of management these people continue work there.

    I worked at Viracon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I liked the St George, UT location
    Employees that worked at the plant were great

    Cons

    Closed the plant due to market conditions
    Managers lacked true leadership qualities. Our interium Plant Manager was a perfect example of this
    401(k) was pretty weak
    Pay is really not competitive when looking at other manufacturing sectors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase wages
    Develop truely talented leaders

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
