challenging to move from entrenched process
the processes used for even simple activities are often bespoke and entrenched which impacts delivery of off-the-shelf solutions. IT and technology procurement has been sidelined by the business any number of times and then when IT is asked to take on ownership, there is little or no support from the vendors because they were not contractually obligated to provide it.

Poor Management, very bad culture.
This is a terrible place to work. People are fired for the most trivial things, Everything done is about self preservation, favoritism is rampant, and workers of color and females are treated very poorly.

Looks good on paper, meaning pay and benefits are very good. Management really only care about keeping the line running.
Safety is priority,i guess. I feel priority is how many shingles get out the door.
I am a line driver,at times it is absolute chaos, with little to no regard for line drivers. The pay is very good, the only reason i stay. I would recommend this job only for the pay.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Same as any other factory, bottom line is production, over safety and anything else

Good place to work
A typical day starts with going over all issues that happened over the weekend or the night before.
Learned to deduced the any issue down to the likely component,

The best part of the job is the educational opportunities.

Machine Operator
Great money, can start out with no experience. Plenty of room to advance to hirer level and pay machines if you work hard and show good work ethic. Good money, paid breaks, quarterly/yearly bonus(not that much money), full benefits that are average(dental/health/life/vision/401k/etc.) Learn a lot of machine knowledge and trouble shooting experience. Major cons though. No sick or personal days, limited vacation days with lower experience, terrible point system for tardiness or being sick. Regardless of how sick or a family emergency or what not you have to take a point, only get 12 points before being fired, points lock in for extended periods of time after acquiring 3points/6points/9points (4months/6months/year) to fall off. Very little help or leniency for any reason regardless or major or not. If a fellow operator gets fired, quits, or gets hurt you are put on 8s and have to work everyday with no time off. Management sucks and and talks behind people’s back and starts problems, high stress environment, terrible work culture. Plant is bad for you’re health, they general do not care for long term health concerns of employees only care and immediate issues like cuts, good money and average benefits but terrible environment and culture. Work 12 hour shifts.

Avoid
Management is terrible, your coworkers will not help each other. Air is filled with fiberglass so thick it makes the entire place hazy, management could care less about your health. Safety is ignored in favor of production. Brown nosing and knowing people in management is the only way to advance. Passed over for 2 promotions for the boss’s buddies. Don’t waste your life working here

Some good managers, some not so much
It can be a good place to work, if you have a good manager. If you do not, you will never go anywhere within the company. Certain areas, no matter how hard you work, it is not appreciated.

Good place to make money
People are friendly and helpful. They also include you in everything. They help you learn and advance from laborer to working the line. They will not hold you back and they are fair.

no home life.
worked seven days straight on twelve hour shifts to get a day off. Not all of the management is friendly. The rotating shifts with the houra and days off made it hard for family life.

Stay away
This is not a company that ever values the people. One of the worst management one could see and totally unprofessional group of people. The working conditions are the worst ever so it's no wonder that the positions here stay open forever. Highest turnover rates can be expected here at all levels.
