Stressful working for a company in long-term decline.
FORKLIFT OPERATOR (Former Employee) – Severn, MD – August 16, 2017
Cut-throat among the employees. After multiple rounds of downsizing, many people had been moved into less desirable positions. Junior staff would try to get senior staff in trouble or fired in order to move back into their former positions. Staff meetings with management, whatever amount of work you did, it was the worst in the company. This company is in a protracted multi-year battle to rid itself of unions, so if you're in a unionized shop, they want you GONE. Pay and benefits were very good for the work we did, and that's why they got rid of us.
Pay and health benefits
NO opportunity for advancement, constant threat of plant closing.
