    Pros

    Co-workers, some of the people that you will meet there are the nicest people ever. They have been there for over 30 years and come to work with a smile on their face.

    Cons

    Mangament team could be better. They are not professional and are cursing or saying inappropriate comments. Please realize that you are at work and leave those comments for the appropriate venues. A lot of the management team is incompetent and then they wonder why they get delays...
    Due to the structure for non-union positions there is not a lot of opportunities for growth.
    Salaries could be better

    Advice to Management

    Act more professional in the workplace and hire more competent management team.

    Pros

    Free lunch. A lot of down time.

    Cons

    Employees are allowed to skate by without learning all the product. Or having to do too much work.

    Advice to Management

    Even though it's a union company, there should still be some standards on what employees know and how much work they do.
