    Pros

    Nice people

    Decent salary for non-college educated people

    Cons

    Unpaid overtime is the rule not the exception for non-union salaried people.

    Rules are made constantly but not enforced. Rules are broken to suit the needs of a few, at which time new rules are made.

    Job responsibilities cross lines - sometimes not sure who is doing what.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to take care of the 3 sentences in the CONS, and learn how to give clear cut and consistent direction to ALL, not just a few.

    Hire people when warranted instead of just dividing up theworkload
