Management is not very good at this facility, often ignoring the needs of specific departments through out the facility. The main head quarters are based out of Springfield Missouri which often has little to no idea what is happening at this specific facility. The current facility manager not have the proper management schooling and or experience as such.
Co-workers are great people, hard working family folks.
The hardest part of the job is there is to much work for person on each shift rotation and not enough help. Problem solving in this job can be challenging with little or no supervisor support.
The folks you work with are the best part of this job, although you are isolated most or all parts of the shift rotation which can make a 12 hour shift difficult. – less
