Sounds like this employee has an axe to grind, and that facts are not important for him or her to share. This company is an industry leader, and has invested back in its people and technology for over 70 years. Leadership and supervision are proud of their years of service and have pride in being part of the growth. As a side note, supervisors do get paid overtime and actually enjoy what they do.

This review is typical of what you will find if you speak to most Red Gold Supervisors. I spent 6 years with the company from 2006 to 2102 and while this review is harsh it is spot on. You can work as a Supervisor forever with limited advancement opportunity. I personally know some great leaders there with 20 yrs as a supervisor that are continually passed over for promotions because the company want to hire from the outside. I left for this exact reason and many of my peers did as well (many more are currently pursuing other opportunities). Its not a bad a company and can be an OK job; nut it will never be a career until RG learns to develop a plan to retain these great people. Paid time off is also below par and is a point of contention with most salaried persons.
