Environment laced with fear an intimidation from both management and the union.
Human Resource Payroll (Former Employee), Wapakoneta, OH – August 23, 2014
Pros: can be a long term job if you know the plant manager and are from the wapakoneta area.
Cons: not really an experience i want to repeat.
Company has many long term employees that are union. These folks have no idea what real work is as they sit around most days at picnic tables while management allows this. management is afraid to task the union with making employees work. Truly sad on both sides.
