      Pros

      Lots of Overtime. If you are paid hourly, you are almost guaranteed overtime no matter what your role is. Many union employees make more than the leaders and administrative staff due to being forced over or taking callback. Good benefits. Union employees still get pensions as of current contract, vacation time, health care, union support, and many others. Family atmosphere between union employees. The union employees are some of the best employees I have ever seen and will stick up for you like family as long as you come to work, work hard, don’t lie, and treat them with respect. Good Pay. Pay is relatively good within the industry. The union employees got screwed in the last contract and come in at $16 an hour and there is no guaranteed raise while those who were hired before make around $25 for doing the same work. This may change with upcoming contract. Still better than $13/$14 an hour in other factories. The company has done a good job with COVID-19 response and I felt safe with the measures they put into place right away. Even though some measures were burdensome, they did more than a lot of other companies did and it paid off.

      Cons

      Lack of coordination/communication between departments and within departments. Communication that was essential for business operations was frequently not communicated to the right people and often felt secretive. This made all workers do more than what was necessary to do the job (ex: revising the schedule multiple times, multiple people doing the same thing). Company is consistently putting out fires and not interested in preventing them. The company is in a great position to make change, but is more concerned with putting out and managing fires rather than preventing them. Resistant to change. The culture is very resistant to change and has the mindset of, “that’s the way it’s always been done.” “Good Ole Boys Club” present in the company culture. Either you follow their lead or get pushed out. If you want to advance, you play politics to remain in their club, not what’s actually good for the company. More drama than in any high school. Leaders will praise you to your face, but will degrade you behind your back if you don’t fit in their club. Most leaders are more concerned with themselves and their careers than mentoring their team. No work life balance. Everyone from the leaders to the employees are overworked. Union employees are forced to work 16 hour shifts due to high absenteeism. Many non-union employees work 12+hours. You have to watch your time card and keep track of your time and vacation time. The administrators make several errors due to lack of time, training and support. If you don’t keep up, you may be shorted pay or vacation time. Request your attendance report weekly.

      Pros

      Good pay and benefits. The work culture was supportive and the people were great to work with.

      Cons

      There's not a strong culture of excellence or push to be great at your job. A lot of people can, and do, get by being mediocre.
