    I have been working at Hydrite full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, excellent health care and wellness options, very family oriented (except with regards to hours), truly caring HR group. EHS people that really care and want to do the right things.

    Cons

    Hours stink if you work at a 24/7 facility because they mostly do 12 hour shifts and a 4/3/3/4 or 5/2/2/5. Meaning you work every other weekend.
    Not sure where they get people in upper management at the branches from? Sending in box tops?? Top level guy at the Cottage Grove facility has the personality of a porcupine with hemorrhoids. When he deems to talk to underlings it is usually about how it really is just their fault for not trying harder to get the communication he didn't make.
    This is an ok place to start, but plan on moving on pretty quickly if you aren't one of the "chosen". It will be painfully obvious if you aren't one of that group.

    Advice to Management

    Get people in branch management positions that actually have people skills..or at the very least a personality. Quit playing favorites. Stop creating positions for the chosen few and then giving people positions that weren't posted for everyone.
