Good manufacturers. Good learning positions. alot to learn from, the people that have been in the industry for their whole career. Very knowledgeable back of the house.
Management! High Management and owners are not from the industry or care about the business. Making really bad decisions for really bad reasons. Letting go a good amount of talent and people how cared about their career. For the bottom line

Your manager will leave you alone to do your work. No micro managing which is nice. That's about it.
Was let go for not being logged into the company network while I was working from home. I was the only PC from Dec 2022 to Feb 2023, as the other PC quit, so I worked overtime as needed being so backed up. Hourly employees also have the option to clock themselves out if a punch is missed. Being as I was not used to clocking in and out at previous employers, I missed my punch many times and would correct it in the morning when I arrived to work. HR did not like this, and fired me for misconduct instead of approaching me in a professional way (I was doing this for 5 months and received no warning and was never spoken to about these "violations"). Also, the company is in debt. I did not know this when I started but quickly found out from other employees and meetings I was involved in. They cannot pay their vendors for materials, resulting in long wait times for customers and missed deadlines. Recently let go of about 20-30 employees to save the company money (because they are in debt). The firm that owns Poblocki gives them money to stay afloat but obviously that is not solving the issue. Where is all the money going? Leadership is clueless and wants project managers to handle issues that are escalated beyond their control. "Just send them this email I typed up" is the go-to answer from leadership. I found employment elsewhere 2 days after I was let go and it was the best decision I could have made for myself. Steer clear of this company. They may not be around for too much longer if they cannot manage their money properly.2
