    Pros

    Great pay.Bonus. Meet nee people with good work ethic

    Cons

    Poor poor Management, I day this as 8n the Maintenance supervisor and the L7 supervisor all maintenance supervisors. Buddy buddy system is used very strongly along with favouritism. The workers that keep the place up to par are the line mechanics and a few day shift machanics,other than that it's a mess. Constant fear is drilled into the working mechanics head that their job is on the line. Structure is far from where it should be, no Management takes responsibility in their duscrepencies and then rolls it on the mechanic when it's not the mechanics fault. I do believe if this mindset doesnt change it will make this plant fail needs to be handled by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility and stop pushing it on the men/woman that work so hard in order for you to have a job. Fix management and lead by example instead of throwing your employees under the bus.
