A company that does not encourage or reward leadership from real industry experience. They prefer not to rock the boat rather than improve
Former Employee (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHApril 9, 2014
Management recognizes those in senior levels that are the loudest rather than those that have the most experience. The company does not reward innovation or increased productivity ideas. They have senior levels (VP's and above) that silence great ideas or opportunities for improvement or cost savings. Those that remain in the company are those that – more... do not rock the boat and those that are ok to let mistakes reach the end-user as long as they continue to get paid. The company has a few people running the show yet they are the least qualified. They are supplier lead and allow the suppliers to dictate design and materials/ingredients regardless on if this is correct or best for the company. The company is VERY old-school, and there is certainly a lack of excitement and energy. There is a real fear to open your mouth even if you are the most knowledgeable in that specific discipline or area of expertise. – less

Chill place where I felt relaxed.
Packer (Former Employee), Enid, OKMarch 17, 2014
Pros: benefits, charge food to your account.
Cons: points system.
I would arrive at work about 10 minute prior to my clock in time, get my gear on, and head out on the floor to see what we were doing that day before clocking in. My supervisor was very lazy and made his line leaders and employees make all of his decisions for him. My co-workers were very hardworking and I got along with them very well. I really enjoyed – more... when I was allowed to just pack, without running around doing everyone else's job. It freed my mind. – less

Health/Safety Admin. Assistant/ Interpreter (Former Employee), Enid, OKMarch 4, 2014
On a weekly basis, I interpreted for prospective and current employees, aided facility nurse, handled insurance claims, maintained employee records, and accompanied employees to medical appointments. My supervisors were a joy to work for and they were very compassionate. The most difficult part of the job was filing paperwork, since the work day could – more... drastically change due to immediate needs. I enjoyed being a voice to the employees as an interpreter and allowing everyone to communicate. – less

A company trying to grow
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee), Enid, OKFebruary 22, 2014
The hours were 6:30am to 3-4:00pm. Matching invoices and bols.
Working 2 billing systems, multiple computer screens and conversing by email correspondence between vendors and the plants quickly. Very easy to work with. Sometimes it was uneasy getting answers on tough questions or problems. I enjoyed the work and the same routine daily but with different – more... problems to break up the any monotony. – less

No clue how this company is still in business
Account Manager (Current Employee), Cincinnati, OHDecember 29, 2013
Pros: paycheck?
Cons: hostile, low pay, long hours, outdated equipment, poor management, no chance of advancement.
A typical day is working with never ending insanity, endless email chains, and completely clueless co-workers. A few employees have great knowledge of the company and how to get things done but they typically hide this fact or they would be training people non-stop.
The computer systems are a mess and most employees receive little if any training. The – more... datawarehouse and other systems were out of date decades ago. It takes layer after layer of menus to find anything. As though this were not challenging enough, you will see the same metrics on different menus but you will have access to only one of the paths.
Furthermore, if you check the same metrics on different systems you will find the numbers don't often match. Thankfully, accounting firms have been focusing on "soft skills" such as hand shaking, and not "hard skills" such as the application of complex accounting rules - or this company would never pass the annual audit.
The environment is hostile as most employees fear for their jobs after the numerous layoffs. People are thrown under the bus on a regular basis. Management seems unwilling to step in and stop the madness even if it has reached ridiculous proportions. People are yelled as and called out on the carpet for things they are not responsible for and management usually pours gasoline on the situation, instead of telling employees to chill out or whom they should contact. Given the number of office/plant closings/layoffs - I guess they have other things to do.
At almost every level employees are treated like dirt. Plant employees are being replaced by temps, many times spending hours waiting unpaid, sent home, or pushed to make up for some worn out machine's breakdown. Office workers are often pushed to make up for endless layoffs and management is consolidating overhead staff in states with terrible records of supporting any basic employee's rights.
My only solace is looking for another job and my boss and I cover for each other as we interview in our cars. – less

Production Operator (Former Employee), Orange City, IASeptember 28, 2013
Pros: accurate break times
Cons: limited pay for my job performance
I was trained to be the back up operator, so they trained me on all of the machinery in the plant. The hardest part of the job was that there was only one of me and I couldn't be in two places at once. The most enjoyable part of my job, was that I enjoyed knowing how the process of the machines and the company ran in production, and enjoyed people coming – more... to me for direction, and operation of their job description. – less
