    Growing company with room for advancement.

    Various Positions (Current Employee) Grand Haven, MI

    ProsMediocre pay is offset by great benefits. The off shift incentives are numerous and make moving between shifts easy, you could wait years to get on first shift at other companies. If you work hard and put your time in there are opportunities to advance.

    ConsQuarterly bonuses are small unless you get the off shift perfect attendance bonus. You are required to have improvement ideas every year and appropriate feedback isn't consistently given. BMI requirements are a hastle, you must enroll in a wellness program if your BMI is over 30, not entirely bad in itself but you have to remember to turn in monthly activity tracking logs which is a real pain, so even if you are following the rules of the program and exercising you can be hit with the non-conformance fee if you don't turn your tracking logs in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet consistent with reviewing and leaving detailed feedback for employee suggestions. If you want good suggestions you have to make sure employees feel like their suggestions are being given appropriate consideration. Maybe put a system in place where if an employee feels strong enough about a particular suggestion they can elevate it and have it reviewed at a higher level in the company.

    Shape Corporation allows an employee to grow as long as the employee has a strong work ethic.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Grand Haven, MI

    ProsBig business with a family business atmosphere.
    Talented people willing to do more than their share.
    A place where "not my job" is not tolerated.

    ConsGet ready to work and be evaluated regularly - not a con per se, but Shape will keep you under the microscope.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the goals and strategies out front and easily accessible; hiding them or not keeping them updated will keep your employees from reaching their full potential.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Stay off the cult-like radar and you will stay working.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThis is a safe place to work that will get rid of morons on the floor often pretty easily.

    ConsThese guys are owned by a family in Spring Lake named the Verplanks and other secret investors who have no problem making the workers on the floor live in poverty even with lots of seniority. They use the dirty " profit sharing bonus " trick to pay low wages across the board while the higher management reaps all of the profit. During the recession they opened a plant in China to exploit poor Chinese families and do a large layoff. They have a war on smoking that goes as far as firing or not hiring good people. If you like having people smile to your face while they rip you off, this is the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is no advice for these greedy, fake, Ottawa county rich people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
