Productive site with many close-knit veterans in the work force
Co-op Student (Former Employee) – Burkville, AL – May 16, 2016
Good environment for co-op students to learn about the industry. Heavy industrial environment with many hazards to be aware of (e.g. chemical, mechanical, electrical, heights, etc.); as a result the site placed a strong emphasis on continuous safety training and reminders. The site is 30 years old and aging in some places but still manages to be productive thanks to a veteran work force, and their safety record was impressive (in 30 years of operation, I only heard of a single life-changing injury). Nearly every person I worked with was friendly and willing to help with my own projects, especially if the project impacted the operation of the unit as a whole.
On-site cafeteria, safety program, friendly work force, 24/7 site operation (different work times)
Different units have differing philosophies at times, getting multiple operation units on the same page was often difficult
