Balls to the wall all day everyday. Treated like cattle instead of people.
Filter Operator (Former Employee) – East St. Louis, IL – December 2, 2018
I worked at allnex for a short time in a fulltime filter operater position. The management is very un proffesional and dont care about anything but production. They don’t really even care if you get a break either. They have no training documents what so ever and expect you to just pick up on the job from watching their senior employees which is ok. But Mind you its an resin plant so it is very very dirty, sticky, smell of fumes all over the plant, and most of the valves and pipes you are to use are coverd in so much crud you dont know what your using. Long hours with only one day off... that wasnt really a full day and night to yourself. So if you have a family and like to spend time with them then this isnt what you want. You work 12 hours and have to bring a lunch because you cant leave for lunch ( but Q.C personnel and office personnel can leave for lunch) that leaves you to eat a burrito or small personal pizza from vending machine. They arent bigg on safety at all hence no gloves at times, respirators, or even a simple ramp to unload 30lbs steel drums needed for drumming. There was a guy training me with three Hernias from all the heavy lifting beacuse they dont even have a drum lift for full barrels of additive ingredients to be added. So prepare to throw out your back.Everything is old and the way of doing things is even older.
Everything else. Need to treat people like people not cattle.
