    I have been working at Plasman Group full-time

    Pros

    Company generally cares about employees, makes them feel welcome.

    Cons

    Growing company so there are natural issues to go along with growth - resources, processes need to keep up to date, etc

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your customer instead of the bottom line

    I worked at Plasman Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Leaving work everyday. The place is a hazard to anyone that walks through the door!

    Cons

    Where to start. Cannot give zero stars. Old owners still run the place by micro managing and undermining authority of all other managers and supervisors. You can never work enough hours for them to be happy and you can never do anything right. If instructed to complete a task, if you do it exactly as told and it fails you are blamed for doing it wrong. The only safety that exists is if somebody gets hurt. Management is lost at the facility. The management at the facility lies to the employees everytime they speak. Stay far away from this place. They take advantage of everybody. They like to change they're management over every six months! If you do take a job here, where a backplate to protect you from the backstabbers!

    Advice to Management

    You are running the businesses into the ground. Make a plan and stick with it longer than five minutes. You do not know everything, listen to other managers and supervisors.

    Pros

    There are some really good people who work here.

    Cons

    Corporate has destroyed this company. They fire management weekly and then you have a new boss to deal every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the GM as he only trying to protect his job and make corporate happy. He doesn't speak for the hourly workers or his management staff. He doesn't protect any of us. A union would at least listen to us.

    Pros

    The pay was really good.

    Cons

    I was not properly trained for a newly created position....just thrown on the line. I never even got the correct job description for what I was doing. Lots of expectations that I knew nothing of until after the fact. Lots of rude, disrespectful, miserable folks working 3rd. Unorganized and lots of safety hazards. Machine always breaking down causing excessive ot. I did not choose to sleep with the supervisor so I felt like I was hung out to dry. If I wasn't ignored, I always heard "I don't know" etc. Ladies watch out!

    Advice to Management

    No one should be expected to work 6 days a week in definitely . People have lives and families. Take the time to properly train for new positions. My position required that I had a degree, but I had no experience at all doing this kind of work. I felt like I could never measure up. There are people more qualified without a degree. Promote them. Review workplace sexual harassment. Clean up chemicals instead of letting them sit. Fix your machine!

    I worked at Plasman Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Overall can be a decent workplace. People are generally nice and work together.

    Cons

    They're about money, so you should be too. If you apply set your minimum salary high, even higher than what you think you're worth. I had to get government support while working in corporate (not operator on the floor!) because they pay so little. If they want something, they'll pay for it so make them.

    Advice to Management

    Think about where you live, where your workers live, and whether what you're paying them is really enough for the location. High turnover is bad for any company. Why not create a team culture that shows you actually value the work they do?

    I have been working at Plasman Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Often times very busy and work goes by fast. Some of the best bosses I've worked for.

    Cons

    One of the very few frustrating things is culture, if your work depends on others, you will likely encounter "emergencies" where their lack of planning or time management will have them running to you demanding you drop everything to help them. However, if you need information from them or any sort of feedback you won't hear from them for weeks.

    HR Department is non-existent, try not to have issues with coworkers or your paychecks because you'll just get the run around for weeks while they hope you forget.

    Advice to Management

    Better HR and departmental managers
