    Pros

    They have great benefits, decent pay, and job advancement. Fast paced work environment, not for the faint of heart. If you are a hard worker and don't mind the heat, it's not a bad place to work.

    Cons

    In the summer its hot, in the winter it can be down right cold. Fast paced work, sometimes to fast paced. Machinery needs to be replaced, constantly breaks down. Management is often times completely unfriendly. Crazy work schedule, six week rotating schedule. Company operates on a 7 day a week 24 hour schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees more and get their opinion on whats going on and take it seriously, don't just brush it off. You have better quality and performance and less on the job injuries.

    Cons

    Negative atmosphere. Unorganized. Favortism among management. Max out pay very soon. Low bonus. Insurance doesn't cover alot. Work 4 weekends to get 1 off.
