    Pros

    HA! decent pay, thats the only pro

    Cons

    this company is a joke. you work with propellants and explosives and turn a complete blind eye to safety. If you express safety concerns they will fire you. Im sorry but I value my safety. people that have been there get away with any and everything you can imagine. lunch room sucks lunch breaks are too short. there is no where to get any type of food within 15 minutes. Rattlesnakes are abundant inside and outside the buildings. I was let go the day after i injured my finger due to old faulty equipment and told it was because spent too much time on my cell phone. lol I didnt even own one at that time. slave drivers that dont care one bit about employees. because they hire through temp agencies. and have people lined up. to get in and to get out. my 1st 3 weeks 7 people were fired and replaced. in a group of about 35-40 and the turn over never slowed down. employees take bets on how long new people will stay. When i was let go they called me at home said dont bother coming in tonight lol . should have listened to friends that work there previously. i would rather have stayed collecting the minuscule unemployment than work there. manager walked around in tennis shoes when it was clearly required to wear ESD safety toed shoes. when it was mentions they said dont worry about me worry about yourself. UHHH I AM you could cause a fire or explosion in here

    The culture is "Do as I say not as I do!" and "The Rules and safety mandates apply to you not me Ive been here 7 years!"

    Advice to Management

    take 6 month off hire a whole new work force. from the top down.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefit. Good job security. Never fire bad employees.

    Cons

    Useless management, lack of communication. Sometime got a task that was due yersterday. Half employees are goofing off while the other half were overwhelmed. Promotion is based on how long you stay not how good you are.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your good employees and do not overwhelm them with others' work. Punish your bad employees who goof off. Otherwise only the mediocre will stay.


  10. "Good work opportunity"

    Pros

    Lots of additional learning opportunities. Plenty of over time. People are helpful, angry great at explaining questions and concerns.

    Cons

    A lot of over time. An incredible about of drama caused by production employees. Don't affiliate with coworkers and you'll be fine.
