    Pros

    Work life balance, good atmosphere and growing company. Everyone is very friendly and helpful for the most part and want you to succeed. You basically do your work until 430-5 and then you are free to go as you please.

    Cons

    advancement seems slow, low pay for most positions. Company has high turnover because of the pay which is obviously a problem.

    Advice to Management

    pay the workers more from office to production. You will lose your talent because of this/ ( Intern is fine)

    Pros

    Most the people you work with are cool.

    Cons

    Horrible place to work. They are slave drivers they take and take but never give you nothing! The rooms you work in extremely hot! Lost 50 pounds working there in 4 months. They will fire you and throw you out on streets without a write up or warning. They dont care if you have a family or kids to support. They are real scrums! The only reason i gave you a star is because that was the lowest rating i could give.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be such slave drivers. Pay better. Give a write up or a warning before you leave a hard worker and there family out on the streets you guy's ruined my life!

    Pros

    its just a pay check thats it

    Cons

    its just a paycheck thats it

    Advice to Management

    stop forcing there good employees out the door and threatening them each and every single day telling them to produce more or be fired. they threatened there employees every single day. they have so many health code violations . they give employees 5 sick days a yr so once you run out your screwed. working every week for a month of 40 hrs you earn 1 day off which is garbage. the work you do is back breaking producing them billions of dollars a month and they pay employees crap. none can live off 300 a week after taxes. they work everyone like dogs and slaves. the work you do in a day you load anywheres between 3000+ kilos a day and drain out 180+ boxes or bags doing anywheres from 45,000 batches that get completed in 16 hrs thats loaded drained and shipped out. they have madatory o.t every saturday when there ahead on orders. there a slave coporation and none stays long because of how they treat the employees. they in dont care about you they fire you over very minimal stupid crap like. they make up there own rules as they go along. there is no set standard in any of the rooms to what to load drain or lean and if they eel you dont work the way they want you to they fire you with out question which in my eyes is crap. dont work for this place you will have a horrible experince here. other companys that do the same kind of work pay 14 + an hr so you get what you work for this place gets slave work out of you .

    Pros

    People you work with are nice.... Except for a couple of them who think they can do no wrong. supervisor is cool for now, but wait until they turn him.

    Cons

    Management treats you with no respect...nothing is ever good enough, pay sucks, OSHA standards are never followed... Forced to go into confined space to clean blenders with sharp blades, which is against the law .... My sweat pours into the mix becaus you work in a sweat box. Gloves and sharpies are not given for you to do job...

    Advice to Management

    Fire the little bully .. He is a lap dog for his boss who also needs to be fired...

    Pros

    Full time and occasionally OT. Most of the co-workers are willing to help you when you need it, good team environment.

    Cons

    Bending most of the time and heavy lifting. Not a good job if you are uncomfortable with confine space and heights.

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment

    Pros

    Get a somewhat bonus every three months if you dont mess up.

    Cons

    supervisiors have nasty attitudes... product we handle are cancerious, but Fortitech doesnt inform us of that....

    Advice to Management

    Hire better supervisiors, not dictators who constantly threaten our jobs, who violate OSHA + Labor board + HIPPA laws. managment have no integrity towards it employees
