    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.

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

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Sell this company to a local business.
