Poor training and job security. Huge amount of turnover!
Operator 3, Decatur, IL - Glycols - July 17, 2014
Huge amount of turnover. In the year I was there, we lost over 15 Operator and only had a staff of around 20-24 Operators. We lost around the same amount of Lab Techs and there are only around 8-12 of them. Half of the front office employees left as well. They write Operators up for Supervisors and Managements mistakes just so they have a paper trail so they can get rid of you when they feel like it. They don't value their employees at all and know they can find others easily to replace them since Decatur has such high unemployment. The people that are in charge of the plant really have no idea how the process even runs and won't listen to the Operators and end up screwing things up. STAY AWAY FROM GLYCOLS!!!
