Factory setting with good workers, but poor management decisions.
Operator (Former Employee) – Madisonville, KY – July 16, 2016
The workplace atmosphere was centered around safety, and product-quantity production. The workers were highly capable of performing the assigned tasks, but little incentive was given to exceed management expectations. The operators were expected to do common jobs, as well as many tasks the, higher-paid technicians, were required to perform. Due to issues ranging from quality, to possible over-hiring in expectation of increased demand, the company was forced to downsize one of its branches.
Though this is most likely not indicative of the company's performance as a whole, it was not encouraging to me, as an employee who was part of the downsizing.
Clean working environment, strict safety regulations, friendly coworkers.
Poor machine maintenance, poor hiring decisions, management did not act on suggestions of workers.
