If your a Maintenance tech, run the other way!
Maintenance Electrician/Mechanic (Current Employee) – Booneville, MS – July 9, 2017
I cannot speak for other areas, but Booneville, Ms is this way. You will be put on night shift usually by yourself with little to NO training. When you make a mistake you will be written up, sometimes it will be your "final write-up". The benefits are decent, but don't be fooled by the "top out" pay they tell promise you. You NEVER will get near top out. There are guys that have been there over 10 years and are making the same as the ones who have been there 3-5 years. There is no incentive to excel here. Once a year there is a plant-wide raise (1-2%) no matter if you deserve it or not. There is no opportunity for advancement either.
H.R. is a complete joke, deciding how well a tech is doing his job just by paperwork and when to fire him. They also say they love to hear your opinions, but will tell you in the same breath "nothing is going to change". They then hand out suckers and ice cream thinking it makes everything ok. Certain management are no different, NOT faithful, bi-polar, always siding with HR and wont stand up for their techs. When you voice a grievance you are labeled a troublemaker and told " If you don't like it you can go to the house". You will be inundated with lots of daily paperwork to justify your position.
If you interview, be sure to ask about how raises are done and "topout pay".
Its a good place to get some experiance to find you a better job, The frustrations you will have working here outway any pros that there may be.
Depending on your position determins how well you are treated, maintenance being the lowest, Lots more, but no room to list.
