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
