Don’t settle. There’s better jobs out there.
Team leader (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – March 5, 2018
Management is terrible. If you have goals and dreams keep them to yourself. If you share the idea of wanting to grow with the company, management will use that to keep pushing you to work harder Daily - even though they plan on not promoting you (If that makes sense). There’s a lot of favoritism, curruption, wrong doing etc. I guess what I’m saying is to prepare yourself for this world at flex n gate (Ventra Plastics)5. It’s very misleading and unprofessional. I spent five years trying to be the best leader I could be. Pushing myself to learn more daily, becoming more resourceful daily, leading by example daily, following through with projects and impossible task that my manager would give me daily. And most importantly being honest and consistent DAILY. But that still wasn’t enough. Prepare to have your intelligence beat down daily. Prepare to see people get promoted just because there uncle or aunt works up-front somewhere. Prepare yourself to deal with the unprofessional world of managers misleading supervisors and supervisors misleading team leaders and so on and so on. I had one Great boss while working for flex n gate. He changed my perception on a lot of things and I can honestly say if it wasn’t for him I would’ve left 2 years earlier than what I did.
Consistent paycheck, Work is always available
Management, Overworked, No room to grow unless you know someone.
