    Pros

    Good company to work for. Care about their people. Very sustainable company. Competitive almost comprehensive medical plan.

    Cons

    Education level of supervisors not as high as it should be. Hiring of associates and managers takes at least 3 months. Difficult interview process for current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Patronage system could lead to a discriminatory hiring practice. Educations earned by associates should enable long time associates to get promoted to next level. Otherwise, keep up the good work. Good place to work at.

    Pros

    Decent pay, large stable company. Health insurance is ok as well. Advancement on the production floor is possible due to turnover.

    Cons

    Company structure is inflexible. It is difficult to plan a life outside of work due to frequent and last minute overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Slow process if possible at all

    Pros

    Working 12 hours you only work 15 days a month.
    They pay well for being in a small town.
    You can change departments by bidding as often as you want.

    Cons

    Working 12 hours you work every other weekend.
    Not much notice when it comes to overtime.
    Managers will "hide" and try to catch someone doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter and the turnover rate probably would be so high. The good workers are the ones that get the short end of the stick.
