Machine Operator/Packer, Buffalo, NY - February 5, 2017
Safetec is an OK company to work for...but only for temporary employment. There are little to no advancement opportunities for current employees, even though the company is growing rapidly. Pay rates are very low for the manufacturing industry. Production is ran well and held together by the two team leads...who also seemed to be over-worked and underappreciated by management. If not for their guidance the workforce would be lost due to the constant changes in paperwork and requirements. Throughout the year the company has events for employees, such as an employee appreciation week, a spring cookout, Bisons game, and thanksgiving turkeys. Other benefits such as medical, is affordable for single people, but completely overpriced for families. At lower wages employees with families cannot afford to have medical insurance. The 401k offered is almost a joke. There is VERY little company match by Safetec. Overall...for a rapidly growing company, Safetec seems to "leave behind" its core workforce and is not recommended for the individual who is looking for a career in manufacturing.
