    I have been working at First Quality full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I’ve been with the company for nearly 6 years and absolutely love it. The quality of products and cleanliness of facilities is always a priority, employees are treated fairly in my opinion, and the company overall is very family oriented.

    Cons

    Not really a con, but the company is always expanding, so employees need to be ready to adapt to the changing landscape. Some are hesitant to change old ways, which tends to add workload to others.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at First Quality full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Job Security. Pay is “okay”.

    Cons

    Over worked. New employees get stuck at the front end of the machine which should be a two person job and pretty much never leave. Constantly running back and forth for 12 hours. Machines constantly break and you’re stuck doing the manual labor the robots should do. Training program is sub par.

    "Used to be a great place to work"

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Sales/Marketing 

    I worked at First Quality full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay is above average for the area. Friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what people actually do, therefore they have a distorted view of what is essential. Company invests heavily in manufacturing equipment, but not their sales/support staff. "Family" members are allowed to pick their "favorites". If you disagree with them, you are eventually eliminated.
