    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity to work overtime with almost no supervision, in oter words, free money. Excellent benifits package, at least for hourly employees.

    Cons

    Corporate level management seems to have NO intention to invest in the long term future of this operation. We are already terribly short handed and if everyone with more than 30 years service were to retire next week they would have to shut the place down. As for maintenance and equipment reliability, imagine buying an old car and only adding enough oil to stop the rattling noises EVERY time the noises started, no more, no less.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the plant infrastructure as it is falling apart. Start treating employees like people, not garbage. Most of us actually love and care for this place but you refuse to give us the resourses to do our jobs. This includes providing materials AND manpower and I do not mean more contractors who, by the way, do not care about our plant. Wanna build a world class Integrated Mill? Put up or shut up, otherwise shut it down and get out. Afterall, these are PEOPLE'S lives you are playing with.
