    Pros

    The only pros are the employees who basically leave every 3 weeks,due to hostlie work environment.Health insurance is good though.

    Cons

    Screaming and yelling by plant management and rotation schedules.The alcahol and drug policy is not enforced by office staff and alot of bad activity on 3 rd shift after midnight. Corporate really needs to look at long term staff at the plant and there terrible training they give new employees. Steam fittings are put on in garage most of the time with 1 person alone doing them.Also,please enforce the conveyor pedal policy and when tubes above 24 inch are ran the safety cords are always unhooked by line leaders. Safety is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Stop yelling and screaming at employees and don't make employees clamp the conveyor pedal to produce more liners. Why is the turnover rate at the olyphant pa plant so horrible,I guess corporate don't care to look into it.

    Pros

    Health benefits and that's it.

    Cons

    Terrible turnover rate,forced to work 7 days a week,2 month rotations,if the manager likes you. A lot of yelling and being told you will be fired. Manager wants you to skip corporate safety measures and don't want you to waste time on gel test.

    Advice to Management

    Control the amount of yelling in the workplace.., by management.

    Pros

    The only positives were the overtime which 7 days a week were too much at months at a time.

    Cons

    Manager at the time was a waste,screaming daily at staff and throwing things like a 2 year old.He ignored safety for production.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your staff like people and not machines.

    Pros

    Very diverse workforce. Very knowledgeable workforce of dedicated men & women. Couldn't say enough nice things about them. Excellent stock options

    Cons

    Company is publicly traded and thus gets a new CEO every 2 or 3 years or so, which thwarts any efforts of continuity

    Pros

    What pros? This company is horrible to work for.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Poor pay, expect a raise of less then $.50 every 2 to 3 years. Absolutely no leadership. Corporate mindset, no care for the working class.

    Advice to Management

    Sell this company to a local business.

    Pros

    You have a chance to work with some of the most talented people. You learn allot about how infrastructure works. The pay is average for where you live. You get above average healthcare insurance.

    Cons

    Once you are hired, all of the promises you received at your interview are thrown out the window. You now work 7 days a week with a day off a month. So say goodbye to your family and friends. The equipment is falling apart and held together with tape. The trucks are broke down half the time. You never get an honest "good Job" from management. You will change shifts every 60 days.

    Advice to Management

    Make a set schedule for your employees to live by. Listen to your lower level employees, before someone gets hurt. Make sure you give proper raises to all staff, not just upper management. And Hire a Secretary for Olyphant!

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for advancement
    Fair compensation.

    Cons

    Advancement opportunities exist because of poor upper management and a serious lack of value placed on company infrastructure.
    Poor communication from upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your company.
    If you are going to keep your core business (NAR), then increase your focus on infrastructure: Hire good people and provide them with the support (equipment and training) they need.
