Machine Operator (Former Employee) – Fulton, KY – May 3, 2016
A typical day at my job would start at 11:00 pm to 7:00 with some overtime on the weekends. I learned to flame buckets, pop handles onto the buckets, stack them and put them onto a pallet to get ready for shipping. Management seemed to have their favorites, and if it wasn't you, they would pretty much pick on you to do jobs that wasn't your turn to do or when you are supposed to have a free day to help clean up or to just do something easy they would pick one of their favorites to have an extra free day and put you doing their job. I got along with all of my co-workers. The hardest part of my job, would be the heat, and when the machines messed up and stopped running you would get behind and have to go faster to catch up. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting and making new friends.
production (Former Employee) – Muscatine, IA – December 11, 2015
A great place to get carpel tunnel nothing to learn but how low the coworkers are. Great if you like to show up in snow storm to be sent home. Muscatine location the worst. The point system is really pointless. Management and office personal gets payed descent. But beyond a jock the rest. Its so sad to see that work there any period of time they must fit right in romper room. If OSHA walked in would have a field day. The hardest part is the over worked part when they relieve you for break they turn down the machine then when you come back they turn up. Then wonder whey you fall behind. Then at the end of pay period soooooooooooo little. Its the sadest place to work. REALLY REALLY
Human Resources Manager (Current Employee) – Jean, NV – October 21, 2015
It is a wonderful learning experience every day i walk in the door as well as a challenge. The employees are great to work with as well as co workers. I am always busy from the time i walk in the door till i leave.
TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) – Fulton, KY – April 10, 2015
It was a good place to work but very hot. This is to be expected since you work around a lot of very large machinery. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with production. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with great co-workers.
Letica is a good place to work if you know somebody
Production (Current Employee) – Middletown, DE – January 24, 2015
I have been at Letica Corpation for over fifteen years. It has change in the past eight years. They have their favorites that refuse to do their job and get away with it so they past the job to someone who always work hard and do their part with no question ask. We have a Mechanic on the printer who does nothing all day but play on his lap top and spend more time with the sales ladies. You know who you are. Our human resources is a joke she has no judge of creator who she hires. She only hires her son friends and they get to do whatever they want. They miss a lot of time and come in late. The HR person covers for them. You and your son’s friends you know who you are. Do not get me started with the Plant and Assistance manager. They have known leadership skills what so ever. The employees run the factory not the managers.
Technician (Former Employee) – Jean, NV – August 2, 2014
Very high turnover of Management. 8 plant managers in 10 yrs. Individuals that are just starting out with no management experience Very closed minded to issues that are necessary to improve mainly Safety. Unwilling to listen to those who can help them with actual experience. Unsafe working environment and when brought to their attention you will be retaliated against. HR dept is non-existent and new every year or two. Always a conflict of interest as they are more interested in buddying up with Plant Mgr. than doing their job. They have no ethics and will violate your rights if it will benefit them in any way. One good Hr person in 11 yrs. and were fired for caring about employees and their issues and following the law. If you don't play the game you wont last. Leave your conscience at the door. Forget about the lies they tell their customers, the few they still have. If you don't believe just do a search on them.
more overtime than you can handle or want, no support by management
always short handed at skilled positions, unable to get and keep skilled employee's, really bad reputation in the industry.
Odd management structure,Lacks any upper level support
PRODUCTION MANAGER (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – July 29, 2013
Definetly unstructured, and by the seat of the pants. Family owned and feels that way, unable to do anything other than what the family " DEMANDS" without any of their support. There will be no advancement because there is no career path that would allow it in this corporation, if all you seek is short term employement than that is what you will get.Plant Manager turnover is extremely high, 6 Plant Managers in 9 years, and still searching for one.Let that give you an idea onall other lower management opportunities as well. I would not consider taking any future positions with Letica unless structure and professional etiquette is restored.
Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Western – June 6, 2013
Management is lost in the world of the owners; deals with the family that runs the show poorly.
The family that owns and runs Letica is very right wing (Tea Party type) and very old world - talk politics openly in the office - very uncomfortable place to work. Has major issues and a very poor mission statement. Treats its employees as replaceable - low morale that is not just seen, but felt daily. President is the son's founder - his sister is also around the office. Bad family family issues. The founder (in his late 80's?) wonders the halls of the Headquarters looking out for God knows. CEO suffers from "Napoleon Complex" Think the movie Elf? Got it?
Times are not good; but I would pass working here -
they stay off your back, but that is the issue!
family needs to take the money and run - the vp's are depressed having to work for this bunch
