    Pros

    Good pay, Great work environment, Management is easy to talk to and actually listen there employee's. Good benefits, Vacation, overtime if wanted, and holiday pay

    Cons

    always working 12 hours. always on your feet with steel toe shoes . constantly rotating from day shift to grave yard shift every 3 days. loud dusty environment in most of the work areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great open door policy. i know you have a ton of employees to worry about but keep trying to sit and talk with each one so you can get a good grasp of what the moral is like . Its manufacturing so its gonna have its ups and downs. And never stop stressing how important safety is like always. And find a way to let them know that safety is number one and you don't want to see any get hurt, but that they are not going to to get in trouble if they do get hurt or injured. Its a production plant, things can and will happen. we can just do our best to keep it to a minimum.
