    Starting pay is ok ok I guess.... I think it should be alot higher especially if your stacking or a stacker......

    People act like after 3 weeks you should be all caught up and near perfect.
    Very cliqueie...

    Management is good at walking around and hazing you.... I haven't see n a supervisor sweat once

    Advice to Management

    Training could Be ALOT SLOWER AND MORE IN-DEPTh....

    Pros

    They offer good benefits, the pay is fair, and they have gain sharing. There is also a strong push for safety and engagement.

    Cons

    There is too much overtime and it causes employees to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to increase the work force or stop increasing production. Shelbyville is in the middle of nowhere and competing for employees is hard when you have to drive a 1/2 hour for a job that is equal to the one in your own town.
