Cons: inflexible, micromanaging, management has unrealistic expectations, no on-job training provided, disrespectful, unreasonable long hours
The company is very cost conscious and rightfully so in this economic climate. However, at the same token, they are willing to hire with the expectation that the new hire will learn by osmosis. They provide more time on safety training, even in positions that don't require it, rather than the essentials of the job. Nor do they provide resources for the new employee. This is common throughout the company. Management is totally inflexible and promotes micromanaging their employees. They will offer one a reasonable salary, then demote them in less than a year. They also force their hourly employees to work more hours than they are paid which is highly illegal, but given the status of the economy employees are willling to do so in order to keep their jobs. I do not recommend working for this company, unless you can read minds and have a high tolerance to hostility.
