    Pay, benefits and employees it is a pretty good company to work for all in. I would recommend applying for a job here

    Pros

    Good pay. Fun job. Great coworkers. Very diverse.

    Cons

    Really hard to get into. The managers dont care about your success in the company. They dont care about your employment, heallth, or anything. They only care about your production. If you have accidents because your running to get 100% production, you get fired. If you dont reach 100% production after 3 months, you get fired.

    1 out of 8 people make it through the3-5 month hiring process said a 10 year employee. They hired me and another 3 guys. 3 got fired and 1 quit.

    Advice to Management

    Teach and train those that are not making your standard of production. Care about your coworkers like you want to be cared for.
