      Too many white men

      Jul 9, 2021 - Process Operator

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Average but consistent pay with a good benefit and stock option.

      Cons

      If you are a white man they have a new Diversity, Inclusion and Equity program out that seeks to promote everything but you and to devalue your worth and contributions simply because you are white. The new program is huge and far reaching. Being driven by the upper crust of management it is alienating the average worker. The program is driving wedges in the workforce that were never there before.

      Pros

      Consistent work, friendly co-workers and safe working environment.

      Cons

      DOES NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE!! Will schedule you to work days, nights, off shifts and anything in between with less than 5 minutes notice because of “business decisions”. You’re not going to have a life away.

      Pros

      High job security because they prefer not to hire externally and every single person is needed to get the job done.

      Cons

      “They would rather pay for our mistakes than pay to hire more people” Workload is too heavy for each individual person to handle.

      Pros

      They do respect safety. Never felt in danger by an active company choice. Failure to repair things is another issue.

      Cons

      They don't follow their own jargon. Find small = Run til Failure. Lack of basic maintenance supplies (i.e. autolubers, grease, pallet jacks...). Way more bosses than workers. Very top heavy on management. A lot of buddy positions that don't really perform any beneficial role.
