    I have been working at Unifrax full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good. Work 4 days on 4 days off 12 hr days.

    Cons

    Everything else. Have to fight for a fan and/chair. Union is extremely horrible. Company can do what ever they want and get away with it. Union reps will even tell us that.

    Advice to Management

    Most advisors are good guys but taking too much crap from higher up makes them not good advisors. They do not know the simplest of tasks like scheduling and making relief for jobs available. We make recommendations to better performance and they treat us like dirt, 6 months later they implement the exact idea we had and pass it off as their own. Extremely horrible company.

    Pros

    Good crew of people, you don't get micro managed, flexible schedule

    Cons

    lack of communication, pay could be better, they are short technicians so the work load is sometimes a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Try to place the proper people in the right job. Too many times they put someone into a position because they have no choice and the person they put into that position is not a good fit. Upper management does not know what is going on down below. Needs better communications, better pay and bigger bonuses.
