Train, Train, Train! The lack of training new employees is ridiculous when I started they gave me a hook and said have fun that was it. Maybe a free half gallon of milk every month or two would help boost morale, could always give milk that was meant for reprocessing. Allow radios or music on the intercom system to help with the long monotonous days and nights of mindless work.

Put the customer first. There are customers that have not seen a sales person in over 7 years. Break down the business silos. The managers are the subject matter experts, listen to them and allow them to focus on their jobs and help their teams. Stop giving so much power to the unions, and to follow through on consistent treatment of all employees. Focus on a solid foundation--- the hourly associates, everyone will reap the rewards. Stop going with the cheapest programs, and hardware, you get what you pay for.

Get rid of the micromanagement and get in some real management. Give more raises. It's hard work and raises stop at a certain amount. Who cares about the turkeys give us bonuses. Good bonuses not stupid coupons for ice cream
