    Pros

    They have full time work available.

    Cons

    They REQUIRE that you work 9 hr days 5 days a week AND they require you work every other Saturday on top of that. And after working there for over 25 years, these guys are only making $25-$28 an hour. You can start out practically making that at Amazon. And the best insurance ever? Hardly. You have to pay for all of your prescription meds up front then send in your receipts and wait to get reimbursed some of the money. Cost me $1,800 up front every month at walgreens for meds. RIDICULOUS!

    Poor Management

    Pros

    Decent pay, okay benefits, twice-a-year bonuses.

    Cons

    Don't expect to do much engineering in this position. Suggested improvements will be mostly shot down with, "no, we've always done it this way." Expect to work more than 8 hours each day on salary, plus occasional weekends / work trips, and to "pay your dues" far longer than is reasonable.

    Wrongful termination

    Pros

    Decent pay, health insurance and 401k.

    Cons

    Night shift schedule is from 3:30pm- 1:30am. This can make being with your family difficult. This company is overly strict with attendance and will write you up or terminate if you do not call in and say you are sick. Even if you call in sick twice. They will write you up or terminate. My girlfriend had cancer and I needed to take her to her chemo appointments in Modesto. The company was somewhat understanding for a few of the appointments. Then they wrote me up out of now where saying that I did not communicate to higher up which was a flat out LIE. They will find a reason to write you up or terminate. I was let go with three others at the same time. All of us for attendance. Even though this location is struggling to keep it running due to not having enough employees.

    Good pay

    Jan 10, 2022 - Operator in Quincy, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Employees work together well. If you’re dedicated there is room for advancement. The pay is great for a non professional.

    Cons

    Lacking in tradesmen. It shows when machines breakdown and the operator doesn’t have the skills to fix it. Mid Management is ineffective at communication. Shift supervisors are over worked and often lose motivation to effectively lead. Severely short handed. The decent pay doesn’t make up for the lack of moral that trickles from the top down.
