Like working in a sweat shop where they don't care about their employees!!!
Finisher/Laborer, Lenexa, KS - July 8, 2015
A typical day is working 12 hours giving 100% trying to reach an unreachable goal. The people that did reach their goals, lied and cheated on paperwork. This company tells you that your life outside of the company doesn't matter once you walk through that door. You are expected to work mandatory overtime whenever they are behind, with little to no advance warning. Some of the management plays favorites with the employees, and treats others like they are not worthy of respect. There were several co-workers that were wonderful people to know and work with. The hardest part of this job was always working your fingers to the bone and never getting any kind of recognition. They offered raises if your goals were met, but anyone that is honest about their work...never met the impossible goals!! The most enjoyable part of the job was the few times we (the production crew) got to attend special events that the company put on for its employees. This company however did not treat all employees equal. The production crew was rarely invited to any of the special events...the office people would get paid to attend, while the production crews had to continue working. Several people whom have worked for this company for a long time, told me that since it was bought out by the newest owner...it has turned its back on its employees.
