    I have been working at Sun Products Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits on your first day!

    Cons

    Lean Manufacturing = making employees work overtime instead of hiring enough people to cover the machines. Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

    Advice to Management

    Retention = give more than a couple of sick days.. people have more than 2 days a year, they or their kids are sick!

    Pros

    Co-workers are the only pros, They become your second family

    Cons

    Upper Management/ Managers or Higher

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, wake up and see the good people right in front of you that work hard and have passion for their job!!!! Value stream has dropped your success rate and your employees love for their work life!!! HR also needs to wake up and quit lying about not being able to find people which makes it hard on your employees with only half staffing!!!! Good people apply and are told they don't have the qualifications or they have found better a suited candidate.... Really, no they just lie!!! You have lost multiple great employees because of your tactics and practices!!!

    Pros

    Great environment. SAFETY driven. They are on a great path to becoming an amazing employer and probably #1 in Bowling Green.

    They could move on their track a tiny bit faster. If they keep going slow they will run a risk of losing some great employees.

    Advice to Management

    Show the employees the opportunities they have available to them.

    Pros

    On site doctor, get paid for 2 week training process, starts at decent pay, even though it never goes up.

    Cons

    Where do I start? Management tries as hard as they can to get you not to move. Takes almost 20 years to top out in pay. Just a waste of time, dead end job.

    Advice to Management

    Get some proper incentives to keep your employees around. 2.5% raise every year does not work. Stop treating your employees like dirt. Why should you do these things? Because you have employees who sabatoge your soap batches, so they can purposefuly get fired and get unemployment. This is a FACT. And the surrounding factories are coming in, and offering better jobs, and better pay for your employees come work for them. This is all stuff that's happening because everyone knows you treat your employees like garbage, and don't give any real raises. I trained for over a year for a lead job. I even did the lead job, without lead pay for a while. I was promised that job when it opened up. It opened up, and they hired someone off the street who doesn't know jack about how things work. Get it together.

    Pros

    12 hour shifts creates an easy work/life balance. Lots of overtime if you want it. On site medical facility makes it great to see a doctor without having copay's.

    Cons

    Supervisors and managers are not knowledgeable. They sit in the break room while hourly employees do all the work. They are uncaring, beware if you get a terminal illness. The company doesn't want to pay medical expenses and will create issues with your work performance so they can fire you and not have to pay. There is no advancement for hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Give rid of the lazy supervisors and bring in ones that can communicate/work with employees. You need to be more aware of what's going on in your own company and get your head out of the clouds. Unhappy employees produce less. Happy employees increase production. Step up your game and maybe you can get rid of the bad reputation you in the Bowing Green.

    Cons

    The job is not worth the money that they pay you, management keeps adding more job responsibilities without increasing your pay

    Advice to Management

    They really need to evaluate their value stream managers , you've placed people in certain positions that don't have a clue of what their doing
