    Pros

    Steady, nothing unexpected. Great if you like calm atmosphere.

    Cons

    Steady, nothing unexpected. Mid size company. Almost no communication between management and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more..supervisors are great. But it seems company doesn't have a good grasp of AR

    Pros

    2nd shift has a good supervisor and zone leaders.

    Cons

    1st shift- Favoritism, Zone lead aren't held accountable, Seniority rules, Temps have no say so. Assembly cells expectations outrageous, Seems not to care about employees if u have no personal relationship with management, Lack of training, Everyone tells u different things fir the same job.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone no matter position should be held accountable for there actions. Every shift should have the same rules because its confusing.

    Pros

    The pay is satisfactory. It's not great. The other floor workers are great.

    Cons

    11+ hours a day. People in charge make unattainable rules and expectations. Not the safest environment. Hardly any raises. God forbid a line worker has one minute of down time to take a minute outside of breaktime.....cuz if u do they will have a overpaid under trained engineer watch over them for a day so he can tell u how to use that extra minute. Extreme favoritism. ......

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing ur staff and let us show u how well trained and competent we are.

    Pros

    The best reasons for working at Oatey are you get a lot of hours, holiday pay and benefits. They will train you in areas you are uncertain of how to do the work, and you will be a leader no matter what after a while.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of working here is attendance is of utmost importance, and you must let them know in advance when you need time off.

    Advice to Management

    If I were to share some advice with upper management, I would say don't be so aloof with those waves.

    Pros

    Very nice co-workers on the floor,nice pay,vacation.and 401k

    Cons

    Unfairness ,favortism,never rewarded for doing a good job not even a thank u,don't want associates talking to each other,always trying to find a reason to terminate someone,especially the people who have been there along perid of time,employees are held accountable for their wrong doing, but not Senior leadership,and Senior leadership doesn't give its employees the respect they deserve.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation towards the employees,stop the nick picking,shouldn't terminate people just cause you can,show respect,listen to the people who perform the job on a daily basis,the Oatey family needs to get back involved.

    Pros

    Given multiple opportunities to make things better. Still much more to improve. Chance to work closely with top management on regular basis.

    Cons

    Many systems and processes need to be revamped. Some segments of business reluctant to change.

    Advice to Management

    Take good care of your best and brightest.
