I started there through a temp service never thought it would turn out to be the life changing experience, I was truly blessed to work with some of the greatest group of guys I've ever known. It's a very welcomed environment with lots of good work ethics and strong leadership.
pays really well, just not worth the stress. Things break down constantly, the yelling, anger and long hours really mess with you mentally. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep the 20+ year employees satisfied with your work ethic which is never done.
The people on your crew make the Company as a whole good or bad. I got the best crew ever.
Job Work/Life Balance
was able to cut up and still get the job done with no repercussions
Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – March 7, 2017
I liked knowing that everyday was going to progress the same as the day before. Always training in progress, all the staff was very helpful. being allowed to cut up, have food days and still get our job done.
All Benefits were great, Gave Awards for Service Years
I would operate the Forklift on a daily basis to achieve my scheduled work deadlines. I am very knowledgeable of the many mechanical features (boom/scoop, swivel hook, lift beam, grapple, clamps, elevating platform, and trailer hitch) of the Forklift and operate it at all times in a safe manner. I also maintain/inspect the Forklift regularly to keep it in good working condition.
Challenging opportunities with ample opportunity to grow and advance.

Material Handler (Former Employee) – Joplin, MO – July 29, 2016
Expect not to have a life. Hard work. Work hard and don't stand around for a while. They expect a lot. Rotating shifts are normal. Don't get on the bad side with any of the guys that are "hired on". Most of the time you'll be busy, so no worries. 12 hour shifts most of the time.
Great pay, benefits and advancement opportunity
Division between lines. Not excepting to new comers ( temporay workers). Not noticed as a temp
Wonderful place to work...very high salary compared to other places and a rotating work shift , which allowed lots of time with family
Electrician/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Frederick, MD – February 19, 2016
Great place to work...different challenges daily. Worked 12 hour shift with 3 breaks during day. Had 3 production lines...2 would be producing product while we performed preventive maintenance on the line that was "down". During my 9 years there it was an ongoing learning experience....combining my job in maintenance and how it affected and could improve the production process.We worked in four man maintenance crews..I enjoyed the working with my crew..working together and troubleshooting maintenance issues was one of the best parts of the job. Probably the worse part of the job was the production process and product being manufactured resulted in a very dirty work environment...and working on machine sometimes required laying in water and mud....constant dust in the air.
Salary, rotating work schedule, scheduled for 16 days each month 15 off days, fixed so once each month you had 7 consecutive days off
Very dirty work environment, lots of machinery with the potential for injury..very physically taxing at times
Manager (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – November 3, 2015
Owned and run by one family. The owner makes all the final decisions at multiple locations around the country. They have some rigid concepts about who they want to hire and how fast they should progress. Owner is a lawyer so, many decisions are risk based. Most Leadership at plant levels change very frequently.
Frequent changes and lack of control by local leadership
The work schedule is very demanding. There are no set guidelines. The health conditions at this plant would not be good for me in the long run. I breathe in fiberglass daily and I'm not sure what else.
