They don't care about their employees
Packer (Former Employee) – Batavia, IL – November 28, 2015
The management team is self serving. Keep the machines running at all times! They get bigger bonuses that way. People don't throw out products that fall on the floor, even though it is against GMPs, because they have to keep their production numbers in an acceptable range... or else they get a bad review. The pay is decent, being that it is a union job, but that is all. The union has no pull for their members. If they want to get rid of you, they will find a way even if someone lies to do it. They got rid of managers that had been there 20 years+ for people that didn't know anything about the place, equipment, or how to manage. Nepotism runs rampant here. If there is family higher up in the company, you get promoted. If you work hard every day for years, you get overlooked. They don't care about your accomplishments. They only care about the numbers. People were promised advancement... a chance to move into higher positions with better pay, that never came. Me included.
