Senior Chemical Operator (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – October 5, 2017
The stupervisors have no clue on the process they rely on the seasoned operators with the experience to teach them the processes the room for growth potential is like having a blind fold on... since leaving the JNJ family the company Noramco has been going down hill with the major lay offs of experience chemical operators...now most of the associate operations are under 5 years experience...
Poor management, low pay, unfair pay, work too hard for pay, employees treated poorly, management brings their kids to work into an unsafe environment, no guarding on moving parts of machinery, favoritism

I enjoyed working at noramco the only reason I left was because of my school schedule at the time. Operating the machines take some getting used to as the machines were a little finicky but once I got the hang of it it became second nature.

Management will wow you with the interview, tell you that you matter and they are flexible....none of the above is true. First week management made it very stressful and was very disrespectful. If you are sick, need a day off or have an emergency expect to put your job at jeopardy. There only concern is the end product and not the people. Benefits and pay is not worth it for long hours, and the chance to lose your job if you need any type of compassion. Kindness and understanding is free; I don't understand creating product to just treat your employees like garbage. Do not be pulled in by the initial interview. Athens, Georgia's facility is full of rude, back stabbing, and awful people.
Good paying job with great coworkers. Management stinks.

Good job to have until the schedule falls behind. Management cares only about bottom line and moving themselves up the ladder. They tend to try to rush you to get the current job done so they can start the next job. If you make any mistakes may cost you your job. They preach that taking responsibility for your mistakes and your integrity is the most important thing. But it really doesnt matter if you make a mistake. Excellent culture amongst coworkers. Long hours and good pay.
this was a very fast place to work.production was very fast with a short time for shiping orders. maintenance was very stressful,because of all the very old equipment to keep operating. call ins were constant because we had no lead time.for instance, we would get orders on monday and be scheduled to ship the next day or the day after.
Being a security guard at NORAMCO was an joyful day, the hours were long but it was exciting with people going in and out. I learned how to sort mail, talk on a three-way radio, perform serious alarm drills, make announcements, write reports. My co-workers performed their jobs well. The hardest part of my job was pronouncing some of the names! lol . The most enjoyable part of my job is the laughter and seeing different people daily!

if you are not one of managements favorites then they are constantly looking for negative things to document so they can fire you
co-workers are amazing but management is more about quantity instead of quality and more worried about their bottom line looking good than about the employees. Management create an environment of employees don't matter as long as the work gets done. Also mgmt was happy about 50% employee satisfaction because that was an improvement, it was 30%
your co-workers are like family
no job security, mgmt out for themselves, employees don't matter
