HR Department holds too much power
Foreman (Former Employee) –  Lyons, PADecember 7, 2017
The personnel department distributes unfair and questionable discipline in an overwelmningly subjective manner. Company progression and growth has advanced too rapidly for certain departments to adequately perform their jobs. Personnel, quality, and lower management are suffering due to said growth and the workforce are the ones paying the consiquences. The top level management team are knowledgeable, progressive, and just people. It is a shame the company does not have the time or people to see the narcissist, power hungry, self righteous yes men/women that are given too much trust and leniency as a result for conducting in a manner most favoring to people above them.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Must sacrifice free time to keep up with necessary cost of living.

Floater (Former Employee) –  Lyons, PAAugust 29, 2016
Inspect first covers on machines as soon as shift started and every two to three hours with initials on each. I learned how to manage my time wisely to prepare for the next machine groups. The most enjoyable part was interacting with a diverse group of people.
