Machine Operater (Current Employee) – Athens, GA – August 11, 2016
The equipment in the plant is old and falling apart, management refuses to repair. Employees are expected to make it work regardless. Production supervisors have "supervisor's discretion" which gives them total control to fire at will. No support system for employees, no training programs for employees.

the company is focused only on employees they know and doesn't open up to letting new employees have time to learn or progress. Get in trouble for whatever they feel like is the right call not by the law or books.
Utility/Maintenance/Line worker (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – November 13, 2015
In all it was a good job because I like to stay busy and I am very comfortable with multi tasking. The team work had much to be desired most of my co workers were just out for themselves.My job as utility man was the most constructive because I interacted with everyone and took care of whatever was needed. This kept me in a favorable light with everyone and above the constant bickering.Besides sometimes working three weeks straight without a day off and twelve hour shifts mixed in with that overall the job was alright.
Once you clocked in you were not allowed to leave the building even on your breaks.

Great pay and benefits. Worked as part of a three man team. Learned about the process of how to stretch plastic into netting. It looks easy and simple but there is a lot of little things that need to be monitored. The hardest part of this job was the 12 hr shift.
My mother always said if you don't have something good to say, don't say anything at all. With that I'll just say my co-workers were great but members in upper management don't always act in a professional manor or do things in accordance to the union contract.
Extrusion Operator (Former Employee) – Roanoke, VA – October 1, 2014
Typically easy place to work, once you learned how to operate the machines. My supervisor was very nice and worked with the employees very well. Due to the temperature of the machines, heat was often an issue. Company benefits and pay were outstanding for the line of work. Co-workers often help when in need of assistance.
