Management has ruined the place
Operator (Current Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 21, 2019
Majority of the workforce is actively seeking other employment. The plant manager and HR manager have ruined the place to the point moral is at an all time low, turn over rates at an all time high and it's only getting worse!! My suggestion delete Advansix from your job search!!

Low Morale
Operations Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 15, 2019
New management arrived 1.5 years ago with leadership practices that is outdated. Since their arrival, over 70+ employees have quit, retired early, or been terminated. Company has to backfill manpower shortages with contractors that are also looped in with the company’s high turnover rates and are also quitting or terminated frequently.

High level management employed a leadership team and HR manager that believe accountability, discipline, and firing is the quickest & only path to establish results by managing with a hammer fist. HR manager can be quoted as comparing employees to clowns, and at times celebrating their terminations with upper management.

Production rates are at their worst, while the safety record is also at it’s worst.

Plant manager and his leadership team doesn’t understand and doesn’t care that low employee morale impacts everything.

Can be very stressful at times, but the work is fairly easy
Polymer "B" Class Operator (Current Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 26, 2018
The company was previously known as Honeywell. They then spinned it off onto a stand alone company known as Advansix. When they changed the name everything else changed with it. The moral is kinda low now.
Pros
The pay
Cons
Everything else

Only good thing is the pay.
C Class Operator (Current Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 15, 2018
Has good pay, however its rotating swing shift with mandatory overtime. Bad health insurance that is extremely expensive and covers NOTHING. Too cheap to fix problems, wait for the little issues to make BIG issues then blame everyone but themselves for it not getting fixed earlier. Always short staffed.

It is good pay, and you do get paid weekly so at least there's that.

Strong, Fast, Continual Growth Strategy
First Line Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Chester, VASeptember 5, 2018
Quite a bit of rapid changes, & extremely high turnover rates as a result.

Company is striving for excellence at a rate that is causing some good, long and short term employees to leave the company willing and or unwilling..

In recent months, several or more new hires in salaried positions have quit within 3-6 weeks.

Salary
