    Pros

    Long hours, but good compensation. Enjoyed co-workers felt there was real teamwork.

    Politics, good old boy network, lack of integrity in middle management.

    People are a valuable resource. HR should investigate claims that could result in termination. There are always two sides to a story.

    the pay is decent,the Work is pretty easy, and most of the people are good to work with. People are will to help out when needed.

    Cons

    attendance policy sucks, lack of communication, group leaders, sometimes do not let you know what is going on. Not enforcing the rules the same.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication to people on the floor doing the work, if you have mandatory overtime realize that sometimes u need a day off to do things that you can't get done if you are at work all the time.

    Pros

    One of the best things about working here is that you stay busy your entire shift. You get breaks to rest and relax, but the rest of the time you are hard at work. It makes the shift go by quickly.

    Cons

    The thing is, if you like production, this is a great place to work. If you don't like production, you'll hate this place. The turnover of employees is really high.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to listen to the people actually doing the work, rather than relying on their own standards set by someone else. The people doing the work need to be heard, or they'll stop doing the work and you'll be left to do the work yourself.

    Company doing well compared to others in industry.

    Cons

    Not a real complaint, but change constant.

    Advice to Management

    Keep you eye on th prize
