    Pros

    Decent pay and insurance. Never a dull moment for me anyways. Employees are easy to get along with and supervisors as well

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Management has ruined all moral for the the employees that try to meet monthly goals. They try to run this plant like its Toyota and when it doesn't work the way it is on paper they push the blame on the workers. Another problem is management does nothing to enforce the lazy to actually do their job so instead they push more work onto the workers that do 120% already. There's too much favoritism. Conveyors are not the answer , it's just money pissed away. The depressing list goes on and on. If you are looking for a good paying job that treats you with dignity and respect, don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Why not listen to the employees to get their ideas instead of listening to college kids you hire that have zero common sence.
