They need to be investigated by the labor board and OSHA.
Quality Technician (Former Employee) – Firth Rixson Monroe – May 1, 2012
Never in all my years in manufacturing have I ever worked for such an uncaring company. Their main concern when someone gets hurt is not for the employees treatment, but to get them back to work the same day so they will not have any lost time counted and have OSHA investigate the injuries there that are three times the industry standard.One employee cut his finger and had stitches and they told him to use his other hand. Another employee got injured on a Friday but didn't report it until Monday, so he was fired.For a death of an immediate family member, you are given three days bereavement, while the industry standard is five. One employee took one day off work to attend his Grandfathers funeral and he was questioned why was he taking time off for it!
You are not allowed to take any time off for the first six months you are there, even though you accrue vacation you are not allowed to use it, even in emergency situations. If you call in sick , you get a point against you, and after 3 points you are fired. If you don't fit their idea of working 80 hours for 40 hour salary, they lay you off because your job has been eliminated, make everyone else work the additional hours, and post your job on Careerbuilder two months later. The bathroom smells like a sewer, the mice are over running the office area, and the heat is off all winter, but on all summer. Besides breathing in the coal fumes and cleaning your glasses off every ten minutes because of all the dust in the air, its amazing that the board of health doesn't shut this place down.
