    Pros

    While the work can be physically demanding, consistently showing a strong work ethic never goes unnoticed. After the brass has decided you truly want to be a part of the team, every extension of opportunity is given to you to further yourself within this revolutionary company. Liberty Tire and Recycling L.L.C brings safety education to the front lines of the labor force. Every morning a safety meeting is called before every shift. While participation is mandatory, giving feedback to fellow workers on the safety issues brought to light is strongly supported by management.

    Cons

    The policy on calling in sick is a little overbearing as a doctor note is expected but still recorded in your file. There is no paid sick days.

    I worked at Liberty Tire Recycling full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for moving around and doing different roles; ethnic, geographical and attitudinal diversity; great time off policy; new office spaces; likes to spend money.

    Cons

    Negative environment; no performance reviews or compensation adjustments while employed there...had to finally approach supervisor and discuss, promised raise but never materialized. very cliquey.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to look beyond the people right in front of you; set up processes to ensure requirements are adhered to.

    Pros

    There is no pros unless just a pay check counts. Save your life and stay away from this plant. Very unsafe.

    Cons

    No pay raise. Medical benefits not good. Found better medical with government. Management doesn't listen. Forced overtime. Keep adding more and more work on you with absolutely no praise only points out the bad. Promises bonuses but don't pay them with some lame excuse. Unsafe place to work. Surprised nobody got killed yet! Many many safety violations with OSHA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Production sups are over whelmed maint sup doesn't care anymore. RVP waste so much money so stupid decides.

    I worked at Liberty Tire Recycling

    Pros

    The GM was good let me do my job without a lot of interference. The people who worked for me were good people and the management team that I worked with were good people.

    Cons

    Corporate office didn't show any respect or care for the people in the field. They knew they were burning out their people and did nothing about it. They took a lot of time off that the people in the field were not allowed to take. Corporate office pushed and pushed people in the field with NO regard to their well being. There is no where to go in the company no where to move or get promoted to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone the same. if you know that a certain job has a burn out time of two years try to do something to make that job better. Stop with so many reports and report cards. People do not need to get beat up every single day to do a good job. In fact you are defeating yourself. With all the negativity, no one who actually wants to do a good job will stay because they never get any praise or respect, just negativity daily.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits were decent.

    Cons

    First week my lunch was stolen and the only one that would have taken it was the VP. It may sound petty but when a VP makes 3x what you make and does that, you know you're in a lame company. There are better places to work than here, trust me!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vet your divisional "VP's" a little better. It's saying something when your boss has drug related convictions verifiable by a simple Google search!

    Pros

    There is a great entrepreneurial spirit within the organization. You can learn about the basics of business from entrepreneurs who started companies prior to selling to Liberty. Also, as the company grows, there are opportunities to help change processes and push projects forward and thus change the future of the company. Also, most managers are down to earth and understanding (correction: some, not most). If you are a hard worker and can deal with chaos at times, you can grow with company.

    Cons

    With all the growth comes a lot of changes. When multiple changes happen, sometimes the employees do not feel appreciated or motivated. Pay is good for some but you need to prove yourself. Certain disconnect exists between upper management and rest of employees. They do not see what goes on and do not understand how certain changes will create a very low morale. Also, certain processes have no technology and are very unorganized. If you come from highly structured organization and do not deal well in gray areas, you will not like it here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Administer anonymous surveys and get the truth about how employees feel. Instead of making changes and assuming they will work, include regular employees in decision to get feedback prior to forcing any changes. If an employee leaves, backfill their position instead of giving more work to others. Also, have more employee engagement activities and have the senior management required to attend (random happy hours, company picnics, more volunteering)....not just boring monthly birthday celebrations.

    Lastly, if upper management would actually stop and talk to some employees other than just saying hi or waving (attempt to get to actually know them), that goes a LONG way.

    Pros

    Good bonus. great technology to work with.

    Cons

    leadership will drop you if you disagree with anything you don't agree with. HR will step in when an illegal compensation of travel is brought to their attention. I worked here for 2 months when my GM wouldn't properly pay for travel. he spent the next 6 months looking for a reason to fire me. beware.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop letting family members manage each other.

    Pros

    The paychecks didn't bounce each week

    Cons

    They hire and fire managers within 90 days, to protect themselves from Corporate - Lockport management is inexperienced - have no respect for workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more involved
