    Pros

    Great company to work for, excellent health insurance, some of the best pay in so. Utah. Can move up through the years.

    Cons

    You have to work long hours on your feet, they only give you short breaks, the work is boring because it is repetitive.

    Pros

    Nice compensation with a decent benefits package. It was very easy work at the supervisor level. Paid overtime in this position, 3 or 4 day work week, profit sharing each quarter

    Cons

    Its a smaller company without much opportunity for upward mobility past the manager level. Its fairly common for somone to remain a supervisor for 15+ years.

    Advice to Management

    No thank you, im not on the payroll anymore

    Pros

    there are alot of changes going at the time and i can see that they are very positive, as long as we follow through with them. i also believe safety is one of the top priority of this company.

    Cons

    i believe that management with there college degree, thinks that they are smarter than those on the floor. they withhold alot of information., but i still like working there, but it is a factory life , so you just go with the flow.

    Advice to Management

    i am glad that (Mr Huffer) has taken back the leadership. it's a start to turn this company around again. He is one in management that i can trust.

    Stifling work environment. People are thought of as numbers.

    Let people have personal items in work areas. Higher pay for the little guys.

    Pros

    Company is big on the safety of their employees. Great health benefits and company matched 401k. Good support from other production supervisors. Profit sharing every three months.

    Cons

    No paid overtime for production supervisors. Production management expects big results everyday and will scream at you if it is not accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Use some people skills to achieve the best from your employees.

    Have been with Curvlite/Viracon for 20+ years and still doing base jobs on line, would like to be moved up!
