Production hand (Current Employee) – Prentiss, MS – August 12, 2018
The people on the property are not bad. But the corporate executives have big ideas that the employees have to do, meanwhile they dont want to spend the money necessary to implement their idea. They just want the results it would have created. The sales team has the power to dictate the production schedule, which keeps everything constantly changing. This company has the nature of pointing fingers for any results less than ideal. They complain how hard it is to find skilled personnel, but they do not want to pay for skilled labor. Because of that, the brunt of the workload tends to fall on the skilled personnel to fill in any gaps they cannot fill
2 breaks in 10-14 hours, 50+ hours per week, often 6 days

Forte was a good place to work and they had to lay off the new hires because a company can pay us the wages the management was really good there it has its up and downs that just like any other job that has its up and downs but other than that it was really good too bad that they laid off from Brigham City and Tremonton facilities

This company is a joke,they brag about making 6.7 billion dollars a year but they can't pay there employees 20 hr with union benefits.Not to mention the exposure to lung cancerious dust ,there's nothing to offer to the employees but a weekly pay check n live day to day straight out dead end road.Your better off working for mcdonalds.All the product Is below quality specs I wonder how they get away it ,no wonder why the roads are failing,The state show yank there license.
Free lunch one a month
Non union, low pay scale only start at 12-15hr and they only give 1 to 2 percent raises.
Start morning with safety daily meeting. Preform PM on pipe machine and mixer. Start production and maintain excellent product all day. While operating machine helps by learning from mistakes. Learned something new with many different settings to adjust. Communicate with management and make sure on same schedule. Everyday was safe workplace culture, everybody believed in same safe beliefs. The hardest part of the day was cleanup last hour of the day. Betting cement of machine with hammer and air scalar. Also climb into mixer (confined space) and scale cement out. Most enjoyable part of job going home everyday not hurt because constant safe practices.
Although this company is the "child" for a large and successful business the management that I worked showed no skill in fostering team work and building team continuity and moral. The team I worked with was not large enough to complete the transition without each member working 70 hours per week. However the stress was not the work but the departments leadership.
Material Handler/Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – September 23, 2016
A very demanding job with opportunity to grow with the right personality and attitude. Job consists of working in extreme weather conditions in a team environment. Overall I enjoy the people that I work with and opportunities for overtime and advancing in the workplace.
Manager (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – August 8, 2016
Company has great products, great people and should continue to remain successful. Information technology is improving. Lots of acquisition activity. Corporate office is somewhat of a sweatshop and political minefield. Executive management has created a paternalistic "benevolent dictator" "military-like" culture and the heavy work load has left many employees burned out and unhappy.
