    I worked at Key Plastics full-time

    Pros

    Nice coworkers, nothing else good

    Cons

    Horrible Language barriers, no training because of language barriers, management doesn't seem to care or understand the big picture of what is going wrong on the shop floor. Crap pay

    I was fired after missing ONE day after 2 months because I was stuck in the hospital after being taken by ambulence and needed my gallbladder removed. I called to let them know and brought in paperwork from the hospital afterwards.
    They fired me 2 days later because "I didn't know how to fill out the production paperwork" was their excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees so they can actually communicate with each other. Be considerate of your employees. Clean out every management and office position, replace every last one of them with actual qualified people instead of morons.

    I have been working at Key Plastics full-time

    Pros

    The CEO is very down to earth and really truly cares about the employees. This creates a culture of family. I really enjoy all of my co-workers. The pay is competitive. Health benefits are very good.

    Cons

    There really isn't anything in the way of training. So if you want to learn and grow professionally you have to take the initiative to do it yourself.

    I worked at Key Plastics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing really worth mentioning but if I had to pick the best thing about working there it would be that they finally started a perfect attendance incentive. Every 2 months you have perfect attendance you got 4 hours of vacation. I think they had to do something because the absences were ridiculously high before they started that.

    Cons

    Pay...everyone gets the same raise no matter how good or bad of a worker you are. After 2 years you are topped out.
    No bonuses
    Low morale. Never got any appreciation for the good things we did....only got lectured about the mistakes we made.
    Team leaders and supervisors were unqualified and had no business being in a leadership position but because no one that was qualified wanted the position due to many different reasons they would get the position.
    Many co-workers were childish, two-faced, gossiped, lazy etc etc. including team leaders and supervisors. If you love drama you will love working at Key Plastics!!!!!! I realize this happens pretty much everywhere but hands down Key Plastics has been a million times worse than I have ever seen.
    Favoritism big time!!!!!! Team leaders would try to get temps fired just because they didn't like them even though they were good workers.
    The training???? Well let's just say there really isn't any...team leaders are suppose to train but yeah that like never happened.
    There has always been a high turnover rate there. I wonder why?
    My advice is to stay away!!!!! Of the people that are still working there the majority of them hate it and a lot of them are looking for other jobs.
