The company is all over the place
Machine Operator II (Current Employee) – Linden, NJ – January 20, 2019
Company hires anybody for a position other people have worked and waited so long for. The new people don't care about the product that they produce and break the machines. When we come in for our shifts, we have to fix everything the other shift did and on top of that we have to do our production too. We get no recognition for any of it. Both shifts get paid the same, even though we have to leave all the machines clean and ready for the other shifts to use, but when we get there everything is disgusting. There are lazy people they keep and they are hiring some more. We have to compensate for all the production the lazy people don't do AND WE GET PAID THE SAME.
Management doesn't care about any of it.
They want us to be sanitation, operators, technicians, and specialists, all with a little raise we got about a year ago. I've given up on this company. I used to care everyday I got to work, now I just come in do what I can and I leave and let them worry about the other "operators" breaking the machines.
For breaks, we get two 25min breaks and one 30min lunch. They breathe down our backs to get back to work on time, even though management works for an hr and the rest of the day they're just walking around in the lunch room but they get paid salary so they can take a whole 12hr break and they still get paid.
They keep hiring supervisors and managers, but they keep cutting our hours. How does that makes sense in a company that's all about production? Idk. Unless management themselves can run the machines and go pack some boxes.
Paycheck is enough to pay bills but not enough for all the work you have to do.
