    Pros

    Free lunch once a week

    Cons

    No x-mas bonus just a ham and a hand shake

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let the employees know when the owners are walking through. They should know how the shop runs without a show.

    Pros

    4 days a week on 2nd shift, pay raises every 60 days till you top out

    Cons

    10-12 hour shifts with only a 15 minute break and a 30 minute lunch. After lunch you may end up working 6 straight hours with no break. Horrible training, the best way to learn is to make mistakes because there is no communication. Some people treat others really bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give proper breaks and move people around more often with proper training.

    Pros

    Great pay, excellent healthcare package, a few of the upper management are very easy to work with and get along with.

    Cons

    A majority of the employees promoted are those that suck-up to the upper management, bias is shown to the employees that don't suck-up, the upper management thinks that family business shouldn't interfere with company business more than is neccessary, the "company policy" rules can and are changed according to the wants of the upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more people-oriented. A lot of the policies the company has in place seem to be more against the employees than for them. Upper management should "remember where they came from" (i.e. remember what it was like being just a regular employee and how they would feel with rules and policies like the ones in place now). If the don't know what being a regular employee is like (probably because they have never actually been one), then they should try doing the job of a regular employee for one month with no special treatment because of the title or position they actually hold.

    Pros

    decent opportunities, decent wage, overall decent place to work.

    Cons

    no optical ins, no consideration with family emergencies as far as the point system goes, and should be more lenient as far as the points go. family should be able to come first without being afraid of losing your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    communication should be better, other than that overall not bad.

    Pros

    great pay and insurance. love the hours and over time if i need it. work four days a week off three where else can you find that in a work place and pays as good as they do no where.....

    Cons

    some times they wont show you how to do some things so you have to mess up and make them mad at you for them to show you how things are done. and when someone gets a foreman job they tend to take it to the head and act all tough and stuff dis like that with a passion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    show your people how to do things and watch for the new foreman's make sure they are not being a prick to the employees just because they got to become a foreman and you didn't.
