    Pros

    Great starting pay. No weekends, unless told to do so 5 days in advance.

    Cons

    It seemed like they only cared about production. I understand that to a point, but when you don't care about your employees health that's another thing. The manager Larry, was extremely nice at first, but then as soon as your on the floor it's as if he could care less about you. I didn't feel comfortable working there after he gave me the whole production talk about if I don't make a certain amount of lines by a certain time they would let me go. Employees there are dispensable, withing a month of working there 3 people were fired.

    Advice to Management

    Care about our employees more. They are not machines, they are people who have feelings and needs.

    Pros

    The employees are awesome! There are some really good professionals here and the environment can be a fun place to work. The salary and benefits are good and the company is growing and prospering.

    Cons

    There's a lack of planning and communication causing disorganization. Managers tend to micromanage including upper management. There's not much trust shown below the managerial level. Good employee suggestions tend to ring over deaf ears. At times, the company can be "cheap" on acquiring needed resources.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as valued business partners. Try to make things easier for them instead of harder. Learn to trust, respect, and communicate with them. Treat them as valued professionals and not as children. Invest in needed resources to get the job done.

    Pros

    They are very accommodating when it comes to scheduling around school hours. Decent place for a high school or college student but forget about making a career out of this place.

    Cons

    Repetitive work that becomes very boring. There is a great deal of workplace gossip among the workers. There is no help provided from the other workers. Part-time employees get no benefits and they make sure to keep most people part-time. There's no such thing as scheduling a day off during the work week, it will result in points being assessed to your record.The pay could be a lot better.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps listen to feedback from the employees.
