    Pros

    Very flexible with your daily schedule and give a great deal of responsibility to the intern right from the start.

    Cons

    Having to put miles on your own personal car for the merchandising internship wasn't a great appeal.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership was very great at the office in Columbus. It was always a great start to the morning to speak to those in the office.

    Pros

    Steady work and good interpersonal relationships with employees

    Nothing negative really to report, Some company politics as is with any corporate job

    Advice to Management

    If possibel, Raise pay to a more competitive wage that is equal to that of other similar positions in the industry. Start with 90 trial period with lower pay to see how the employee will fair and after a relationship is built with the employee give the person a substantial raise

    The personal interaction everyone has with each other. Everyone is always willing to help out no matter the situation. Given time for advancement within the company is without bounds.

    Insurance is overpriced. The environment is dusty and dirty, but you are made well aware of that during the interview.

    Pros

    Relative operational autonomy at the plant level, individual accountability for performance

    Cons

    Seasonal, little in the way of real support from regional and corporate management resources

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on support of individual operational units. Don't try to force the same KPI's on plants of vastly different infrastructure and capacity and age.

    Pros

    Great people to work with although there can be some drama. Variety of duties to perform makes every day different.

    Cons

    Promotions can be hard to come by, even though it is a national corporation. Upper management personnel usually stays a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have better training for employees with promotion potential. Instead, management encourages growth and responsibilities, then decides to hire from outside the company than promote within.

    Good environment to gain management experience. Company on the west coast is very solid and organized well.

    Cons

    I spent fives years with the company showing no interest in my career future or willing to help me move forward even after completing a four year degree. No bonuses to speak of.

    Show more interest in management and develop a standard set of operating procedures for all facilities.
