multi skilled tech (Current Employee) – Athens, AL – March 7, 2018
Our manager is emotional, very difficult to work with numerous complaints. A lot of people have been terminated since one has came on. Use to be a fun place to work now very stressful. Manager is bias and makes you feel belittled with a grudge held.

Very stressful. Current site manager is very biased, does not listen to employees, does not allow employees to even complete a sentence and does not give employees credit for their work. Will terminate employees if they bring a problem to the table looking for solutions. Team facilitators poorly trained. Long hours, lack of training. Culture is horrible and hardly anyone gets along.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee) – Fowlerville, MI – October 3, 2017
A typical day at work was 12 hours long. There was no position that was enjoyable to do. Everybody that worked on the floor was always doing things their own way and when they got stuck training new people they would get an attitude and you could tell they didnt want to be doing that.
Employee (Current Employee) – United States – September 29, 2016
Pros: Benefits/Compensation, solid foundation for bonus program, health incentives, and retirement plan (401k)
Advancement: Favorites are played during the hiring process. They would rather hire from the outside then promote from within. Employees are brought on board that are not suitable for the job. Management tends to play favorites and hire people they formally worked with who are now laid off or out of a job, OR hire relatives and have them as a direct hire. This is AGAINST corporate & local policies, but HR turns away from this.
Management: Toxic, fast to blame individual contributors. Numerous projects get derailed by poor time management (everything is a priority), or lack of funding. They ink every purchase and project, but when things fall apart and employees look up to them and ask for resources they aren't received, or held up for months. When the project falls flat on its face, it's laughable to think management will take any responsibility. When the new capital year starts expect to have 5-6 projects, yet 2-3 will be successful throughout the year.
Job Culture: Everybody's plate is overly full 80% of the time. Here's an example when you need to mine data, the process takes HOURS! Databases are usually missing entered data, corrupted, or in Read-Only because someone else has it open. Too many meetings & weekly reports that consume HOURS week after week. Everything is very manual/time consuming, nothing is automated.
Process & Equipment qualifications & verification's are a JOKE, and they wonder they there is so much variability & lack of repeat-abilitymore... in a manufacturing process.less
general (Former Employee) – Fowlerville – May 15, 2014
Place was only concerned with profits. Shifted pay weeks to get out of overtime pay. New supervisors and high turn over caused poor working conditions. Pay was adequate, but I had co-workers set me up for failure to insure their continued overtime. Supervisor didn't report hours and had to file wage complaint with the state of Michigan.
The actual work was reasonable and even enjoyable, but the negativity was unbearable. Lots of people leaving who made good money and had been there for years because of new rules and company wide changes.
