    Pros

    employees are great people to work with, there is no hard job to hard to do, easy work. The pay is okay for the area. A lot of over time

    Cons

    Twelve hour shift rotations. They want you to work on the days off due to being short handed all the time. have to learn many different jobs and not get compensated for it. Moved into a newly remolded building then tried to reinvent the wheel, made a lot of changes to the way employees done there jobs that they have been successful doing for over 70 years. Now the company has went down hill.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees do what they know to do. Listen to employees they see first hand what is going on. If it looks good on paper it don't always look good where the rubber meets the road.

    Pros

    Great pay and excellent benefits. They promote from within the company. Constantly chasing ways to improve safety.

    Cons

    Long hours and poor communication. Did not have really good trainers. The trainers at this location was very poor trainers to say the least!

    Advice to Management

    Need better communication and more people should be crossed trained all over the board from the top down. Be sure the people training have the ability to train!
