    I have been working at Little Rapids full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay without a college degree, positions available by seniority, advancement depends on number of people dying or retiring. Good 401K plan, great health/dental/visual insurance. Friendly associates for the most part.

    Cons

    Rotating 12 hour night/day shifts, when people are on vacation or out sick you can be put on different crews and your schedule changes for a few months. Not much vacation time, no sick days.

    Advice to Management

    Take ideas from production associates to improve things.

    I worked at Little Rapids full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Above average pay. Climate controlled production floor.

    Cons

    The relationship between the employees and management is terrible. The majority of salaried employees are only looking out for themselves. Next to no room for advancement. All-in-all, a very depressing place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like PEOPLE.

    Pros

    The associates on the floor and the office personnel are wonderful to work with on a daily basis, and particularly on a one-to-one basis. My manager gave me the flexibility I needed to do my job well and to maintain my work-life-balance.

    Cons

    The relationship between the union and the company provides many challenges because it is quite harsh. Also, the company leadership does not seem to respect the associates on the floor as much as I feel they should. This is evidenced by the fact that upper level managers are rarely on the floor and rarely ask for the opinions of those actually doing the work. Along with other reasons, this makes for a fairly poor employee morale in these areas.

    Advice to Management

    From a business standpoint, continue to do what you do; it's working. From a personnel standpoint, spend more time with the people on the floor. They are full of ideas for improvements, and it would boost employee morale.

    Pros

    Good challenges. Good processes in place for ISO certification. Friendly coworkers. Up to date technology and facilities at one location. Good safety program.

    Cons

    One location is a much older facility although the technology is okay. Job performance reviews are inconsequential. Staff incentives are difficult to meet.

    Advice to Management

    Value all input no matter where it comes from.
