Do not work there if last place on earth
production (Former Employee) –  Muscatine, IADecember 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

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  UnknownSeptember 27, 2015
Safety needs to be enforced. Units are never locked out for maintenance repairs. Hydraulic fluid everywhere. It's a pay check that's all they have to offer but they pay isn't great.
Pros
Affordable health care
Cons
Safety, wages, management, hr, language barriers.

Nice Place To Work
TEAM LEADER (Former Employee) –  Fulton, KYApril 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, DEJanuary 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.
Pros
great healthcare
Cons
dealing with bad equipment. bad employees

Money that's it.
Technician (Former Employee) –  Jean, NVAugust 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.
Pros
more overtime than you can handle or want, no support by management
Cons
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, TNJuly 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.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
antiquated production equipment

Comment – November 18, 2013

Although I gave dedicated years of my professional career to Letica/ Maui Cup, in the end they were unwilling and uncompromising in my termination without due cause. Understand Tennessee is a right to work state and no employment is guaranteed, you would think that with 7 years of commitment managing their business well, and much promise of advancement at senior level that professional careers would be nourished rather their philosophy to the contrary. I would never work for them again and you should research their culture very well before accepting any offer.

Odd company, run by an odd family
Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  WesternJune 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 -
Pros
they stay off your back, but that is the issue!
Cons
family needs to take the money and run - the vp's are depressed having to work for this bunch

Inspector\Printer Operator (Former Employee) –  Huguley, ALJanuary 22, 2013
My typical day includedworking on printing team to print, lable, package and wrap assigned lorders. I learned\increased my skills to notice and pay close attention to detail .I worked under the direction of supervisor. I also worked as a team rotating stations\duties throughout the day with my co-worker.
The hardest part of this job was working in sometimes extreme hot temperstures. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I worked within the company in a small department where there was a positive and productive atmosphere
Pros
working in a smaller department
Cons
sometime extreme temperatures to work in

It was a good experience
LEAD PRINT (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKApril 21, 2012
Used to get instructions from the Supervisor on a day to day basis regarding the jobs to be done.That includes adjustment of machines, setting up the plates, colors and make ready. The machines were four color dry offset semi automatic. The feeding and stacking were done manually. Was engaged fully through out the shift by loading the containers to the feeding line and pushing them to the packing line. Hardest part of the job was setting up four color halftone jobs because it should register well and match the color also. The co-workers were very co-operative and supportive. Each day was a challenge and I believe I stood up to that challenge. The most enjoyable part was to do the difficult jobs with quality. The management was happy about my work.
