    It was really great working with this company as an intern.

    Manufacturing (Former Employee) Huntington, WV

    ProsThe company encourages you to learn and work independently. Gives you an opportunity to come up with new ideas and apply them. Team driven company to achieve production goals. You get an opportunity to work with really talented and experienced guys.
    If one has to learn about a manufacturing, I think this is the place.

    ConsSome times the set of instructions are not clear. You have to work extra and at odd times.
    Some of the standard processes are not clear.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice. Management was good.

    Consthere is no communication from upper level management, there is no communication when business is down and there are steps the company needs to make. there is absolutely no work life balance

    Advice to Senior Managementmanagement needs to reduce the level of arrogance this makes the employees resentful and it shows no respect for the employees
