Amazing Company
Office Admin (HR Assistant) (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYOctober 25, 2018
I have worked for this company going on 2 years now and been in HR for almost 1 year. This is honestly one of the best places that I have ever worked. I would definitely recommend anyone to work here. The management team is amazing and definitely puts the employees first. Hourly employees are free to voice their concerns or opinions and are listened to. As well as making suggestions on how to make certain processes run smoother, faster, or better. Everyone is treated with the highest respect. It is a professional work environment in all departments. Very clean and bright place to work.

ok place to work
Machine Operator (Current Employee) –  Bowling Green, KYOctober 17, 2018
Some of the managers don't take suggestions well.
Would also help to have maintenance workers that know the machines. If management was better they would be a great company to work for.
Pros
Pays well

Bad Management, Too cheap to buy parts, Back stabbing
Mechanic (Former Employee) –  Hazleton, PAOctober 17, 2018
Horrible management with a tendency to engage in nepotism/favoritism. They are cheap to a fault. Meet your #'s early? You will not be getting 40 hours that week. This happens frequently so be sure to budget your life around a 30 hour week. The investors are everything, the employees mean nothing. You can tell that to be true by looking at the machines and spare parts room. Most of the machines are quite old and a good chunk of the time you will be trying to reinvent the wheel to repair them. That is because either the machine is obsolete and OE style parts are not available. Even if they are, they are too cheap to stock a lot of them. Pay is fair, benefits are horrible. Their are a lot of nice people there, however. You just need to know the few back stabbers and butt kissers.
Pros
Decent pay, 2/3 of the people are good people.
Cons
Horrible management, benefits, 1/3 of the people are all related/raised together and are out for themselves and their own.

Never know what to expect when arriving for work!
Operator I / Lead Auditor (Current Employee) –  Altavista, VASeptember 21, 2018
The management structure is a dictatorship with no ability to freely give truthful information. Although the company says open door policy, it is more like a go through the door at your own risk policy. The operations is managed to fail. Expectations on employees are unrealistic and blame is placed on employees regardless of what the real issue is. The communication is non existent or it is what management wants to hear. Also, management communicates to corporate unreliable information and then covers up issues when corporate shows up to facility.
Pros
Other employees
Cons

Good Place To Work
Quality Assurance Supervisor / Safety Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Richmond, CASeptember 15, 2018
Good place to work, as long as they don't shut your plant down too. Spent ten years with Graham, promoted up from a material handler/palletizer operator to blow molder operator to production supervisor to quality control supervisor/safety coordinator. Plenty of opportunity to climb the ranks if you show desire!

I was put in charge of firing my 2/3 of my work force and hiring new ones. Not a good sign.
