Approves of CEO

Pros

Benefits and pay are above industry standard but average when taking So. Cal location

Cons

Information sharing is low. Newcomers are not trusted but must earn the trust by working their way into the many "clicks"

Advice to Management

Allow people to grow an experiment and when they don't meet expectations, help them through it rather than demote of move them.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, great place to work while going to school.

    Cons

    Superiors treat you with disrespect more so than not. Depressing. Management gets away with murder while you are expected to deal with their crap. I'm on my way out of there.

    Advice to Management

    Take some management classes and get rid of the god complex you have.

    "Rotating 12 hour shifts - straight time for holidays and weekends"

    Current Employee - Primary Plant Equipment Operator in San Clemente, CA

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Job stability - In Operations you have to be a complete loser or become a felon to get fired. Lots of days off with rotating shift work - 7 in a row every 5 weeks. Ability to transfer to other jobs or work in temporary work assignments is good after qualifying Primary. How many jobs pay you to train for a full year before you do any actual work? It is nice to surf the internet when things are slow - sorry SCE attorney but it keeps me awake!

    Cons

    12 hr shifts behind the fences with guards, guns, and cameras everywhere while people bbq on the beach and all your family and friends are off work. Putting up with all the new programs, blue books, rules, and other smoke and mirrors that management crams down your throat. Dealing with the stress of passing exams on volumes of material that were never correctly taught to you. Wasting you life surfing the internet all day when things are slow.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that we have friends and family - stop jacking with the schedules - we need to plan.
    Drop the "cowboy up" saying and anything that involves Loyal Dogs and Cavemen. This really comes out of Mgmt!!!! Enough with the full-sized cutouts of apes and John Wayne too!
