worked the last few years of the closing
Utility (Former Employee) – Poplar Bluff, MO – June 2, 2016
The factory was full force open when I was hired. They had regular employee meetings and regular postings of job listings inside the plant. The HR dept was great at answering questions for workers. I was on overnights so it was a bit burdensome for obvious reasons. The management was quick to respond or begin processes of events or situations that had to be handled after office hours were closed. Moved to weekends shift at the last year of plant closing, as part of the 'building backstock' crew. All kinds of people were hired then quit, temp workers from temp agency, so for the vets of the facility it was a burden. Bosses left, questions began to be left unanswered (because there was no answer), and ideas were left to shrivel up. I assume that is normal part of shifting into 'losing job' land of a facility. Compensation for benefits from being with an outsourcing company were standard and well for what was happening. There was no surprises or false representation of what to expect at plant closure.
gave plenty of notice for outsource decision, implemented incentive programs for quality assurance scores
