    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Everyone looks out for one another. Lead guys pitch in to get the job done.

    Cons

    Pisspoor management. Constant schedule changes. Sales drives production, 24 hour weeks, 70 hour weeks. You find out on Friday afternoon you'll have to work the weekend. If you work Sunday they like to send you home early Friday if they can to cut down on overtime pay. Absolutely NO planning. Unhealthy plant, toxic fumes, poor ventilation. Texas summers in this plant are murderous, 10 to 15 degrees hotter in the plant than out. 90 percent are Mexicans so management couldn't care less. High turnover, new faces every week. Laid us off for 2 weeks once. They told us they would file unemployment for us, so we would still get a little money. They lied. No pay. Too much trouble for them to file the paperwork I guess. Didn't tell us till we came back to work. Another 2 week delay for the little bit of pay. For months at a time you have to use a vacation day if you want a day off. Work /life isn't balanced, work has life in a sleeper hold and life's vision is fading fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your ass. How can other manufacturers work their people 40 hours a week, make a profit, and meet their production schedules? Fire your production scheduler, or retrain his retarded ass. Jackslap your sales guys for making promises someone else has to fill. Why can't you allow your people to have a regular home life? Some stability would be nice.

    I worked at United Copper Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Always hiring if you need a job they will give you a chance. Management concerned about employee safety and improving it

    Cons

    No heat or air conditioning in the work area. The work area is below freezing in winter and over 110 in summer.
    Pay rates are too low for the working conditions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    About half of the vice presidents and directors do not agree with the CEO's approach and openly talk about it to employees. CEO needs to get the management team to believe in the approach.
