Though I've only been there a short while, I must recognize that they really allow associates to work on their own, without having to check up on them every 10 minutes

Good employees, fairly nice managers and easy work
Operator (Former Employee), Columbus, NEMarch 29, 2014
Pros: we had paid lunch, great benefits
Cons: we couldn't smoke on the campus, got in trouble if we took a few minutes past the allotted half hour for break
I would go in at midnight every night and would work with a team of 3 or 4 people. We would start up the line and inspect and package the product. I learned how to do this work, plus fix the machines and switch out product when needed. My supervisors were very nice and, most of the time, were helpful. My co-workers were fun to work with but sometimes – more... were very juvenile and inappropriate, which at various times made me uncomfortable. The hardest part of my job was when I had to work with people who loved to spread rumors or were just plain unpleasant, because I had to spend eight hours straight with them. The part of my job that I loved the most was learning new things, inside the cleanroom and out in the rest of the plant. I loved being the person that my supervisor would call on to learn something new. – less

Non stop work. (If your awake you're working)
Sales (Current Employee), Jacksonville, FLFebruary 4, 2014
Old Company trying to make positive changes. Manic activity but actual changes come very slowly.
Most upper management financially spoiled and out touch with the worker bees' day to day burden.

Great pay, not enough time off to spend time with your family
Machine Operator (Former Employee), Torrington, CTJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: manager and surrounding employees were great to work with, good pay, plenty overtime
Cons: worked third shift, and would only have a half of day off of work a week
Great place to work independently, and with other employees. You start at 14.00 dollars an hour and you basically control your raises by skiiling up on the machine that you operate, by going from a basic operator to skill 1 and so on, so with in a year you can be at 19.00 dollars an hour depending how fast you have technician train you. The job itself – more... was great, except that you would only get basically a half a day off, and for those with family and kids like myself it made it hard to be with your family when you work second or third shift. – less

This was a really good place to work and was very well organized and managed. Culture was mostly big business culture.
Material Handler (Former Employee), Holdrege, NEOctober 29, 2013
Pros: lots of pot lucks and occasionly a prank or two might have occured.
Cons: 12 hr days sometimes got kind of long.
I enoyed all my 13 yrs. there and retired in 2007 at age 55. I always worked with top quality co-workers and that made it a lot easier to be taught and improve. The company was always seeking ways to imporve efficiencies by seeking employee participation in that process. We worked 12 hr. shifts and enjoyed our time on shift with lots of pot luck dinners. – more... The hardest part probably was communicating over long distances in a noisy invironment.
I enjoyed working with out managerial presence and we were all self motivated or self starters and new what had to be done and we got it done. – less
