    Gibbs strives to ensure our safety

    Overtime is available (most of have an option if we want to work).

    Advice to Management

    Keep the communication going - just because it is on the TV monitors does not mean we always know what is going on.

    Pros

    First Class! Superior staff and very knowledgeable team members. One of the largest employers in the county but, has that large family relationship. Great benefits (medical, dental, 401K, vision, life. On site banking (Credit Union). Very involved with community services as well as JDRF(Juvenile Diabetes), United Way and many others.

    Cons

    Needs to consider updating the out dated software supporting the day to day manufacturing tasks. Daily struggle.

    Advice to Management

    Suggestion boxes at all plants(Ideas or comment boxes). It gives the people a chance to have a voice anytime as well. Knowing from experience being on second and third shift. Your voice falls to deaf ears when no one is around to hear.
    Their opinions matter. HR Team checks the boxes so confidence is known.

    Pros

    It paid well and had good benefits. It was easy to get hired as long as you had a high school diploma/GED

    Not easy to advance unless you know someone in upper management. Not easy to switch shifts unless you're a temporary worker.

    Stop advancing your relatives and friends and advance the people according to their performance.
