Mold Specialist (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – December 3, 2017
I basically just come in do my job and leave. Fix machines and work with other departments.
Management is okay with certain people and not okay with others.
One specific shift has an awful mentality that drags down the rest of the entire shift.
Workplace culture is very shift dependent.
The hardest part is trying to get to know people despite the high turnover rate and work around varying types of criminals. They do not vet out anybody depending on what their criminal history is anymore.
Things are constantly changing with little to no input from the employees.
The most enjoyable part is likely cultural diversity, it's hard to say.

If you're new to the world of work, and you're looking for a good manual labor job, this is for you. The managers are understanding and compassionate people who have worked at the company for a long time. They have tons of opportunities for advancement, whether it's a new level of packer or a look into a new career. They will train you on site for all of those careers. If you're looking for a place to move up to, then you can definitely reach that level given time and effort.
The only downside I have to say is how much some of the supervisors just seem to hate everyone. There ARE good supervisors, but most of theother supervisors are rude and will cut you down for no reason, even if you're having a laugh about something.
good supervisors, amazing possibility of advancement, lax on punishment for mistakes
harsh punishments for having your phone for any reason.

Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 16, 2017
Over all Airlite is a good company to work for. As a supervisor, I was happy with the hourly wage, but the starting pay for packers is not very good. Airlite also has good benefits, and opportunities for advancement. Airlite has very high turn over with at the packer level, and has a very hard time finding good employees who are willing to work, and show up every day. As a supervisor, it makes it very difficult to deal with constant labor shortages, and employees with poor work ethics and attitudes. Because Airlite has such a difficult time retaining employees, they tend to coddle the employees they have, so they don't leave, which kind of ties the hands of the supervisor. Due to the nature of injection molding, it is very fast pace, because the machines run nearly constant, and you have to maintain packers at the machines at all times. Machines will frequently go up or down, which causes the supervisor to move the labor, and adjust which machines need to run. Some days, this can be a constant battle to move labor around as needed. I have worked at Airlite for about 18 months, and during that time, the company has made a lot of changes, some beneficial, some not. They continue to change, and hopefully they will find a formula that will work for all.
Good pay and benefits. Good hours. Climate controlled
Fast pace, turn over issues, stressfull working conditions.
