poor management
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAApril 19, 2017
This company has shut its doors abruptly on hundreds of employees without any fair warnings other than protecting themselves (Managements). They have put a lot of employees in a tough situation but now all we can do is move foward. Maybe it was al for the best towars our future to find a job that is more stable.

Not a bad company while running
Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAMarch 30, 2017
Although I learned a lot while working there the past 3 years, the company became very unpredictable towards the end of a major expansion. This is included multiple shutdowns and layoffs, which inevitably ended in the company going out of business indefinitely.
