Lot's of room for Upward movement, but for a price
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Ravanna, MOMarch 25, 2017
You are expected to work 11 hours a day during the summer. There seems to be a lot of turnover with administration, and a lot of corporate push. The pay is good

Associate Technical Services Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bingham Farms, MIDecember 6, 2016
Canadian/French based company and people. Not very laid back or approachable Top management, but I guess, who is?!

Bad place to work STAY AWAY!!!!!
Production Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ravena, NYFebruary 21, 2016
Management is by far the worst I have ever encountered , union ( kind of a joke). Very ,very ,very dangerous place to work. They tell you lies to get you in then act like its out of their control . Human resources is a big joke ,every time anyone needed help he was never to be found also , Inside is like a throw back in time , everything is out dated 1960's style. Management is compared to a guy with small man syndrome. They say they give bonuses .....HA no such thing , no pension horrible benefits . If you don't care about your well being and your family then this job is for you, if you do STAY AWAY!!!!!!!
Pros
none
Cons
Everything
