Conditions
As long as you keep quiet irrespective of whether you think youre being treated fairly or not, then youll be ok. Especially keep quiet if youre a minority. Its a good old boy system there.....the pay and benefits are good but you end up suffering in silence because youre not made to feel like an integral part of things unless youre a tes man and stay in your place

Watch Your Back
The absolutely worst group of managers I have ever worked with. Butt sucking/back stabbing. Females given more opportunity. Boss was terrible. He got fired.

Terrible company
This company is a terrible place to work. They don’t care about the employees, only care that production hits its goal. Just make sure that you look out for yourself.

Fast Paced
It was a ok part time job. Some days it wasn't any work, we got done pretty fast, i learned how to build bigger displays, management was ok, the culture was diverse, lifting heavy items, going on lunch or break.

Have to be in yhe circle to move forward there
I have never seen such cover up for wrong in so many ways to environment and orders to individual differences to employees threw out the company in morristown . If you have concerns about safety no one to take your concerns seriously or move forward with what needs to be resolved

Good Company to work for. Plenty of opportunities to grow.
This is a good company to work for, if you have the right job and the right boss (just like anywhere else). The company gives a lot of options to find your own groove, but it is up to you to find out what works for you and what does not.
Pros
People are valued
Cons
Somewhat antiquated mentality about what is 'good' and 'bad'

Terrible if you ever want a life
Money Great, environment bad!!
Management is trash, coworkers are narrow minded, the roating shifts are the worst. 4 on 4 off 12 hour shifts really suck

Dead end job
Excessive overtime with strict point system. Bi weekly pay. 6 day work week 8 months out of the year and lots of 12 hrs shifts. Takes 8 years for 3 weeks of vacation. No personal days.
Rude supervisors. Production manager has extreme anger issues.

No family life, appreciation or sense of value. Just do your job and dont ask questions. You'll be fine

Lack of inclusion
Felt like outsider management or HR will meet with you but nothing could be done. Job and work balance was perfect except when you had to leave to a doctors appointment then it was an issue.

Can’t make this up!
Pay is ok people are ok some are not some are so well taken cared of compared to others it’s chaotic and mind blowing. To get a job here you have to pass a background check but while you’re working here you can commit fraud and the plant manager will give you a freelance schedule. Yes we’re short handed in maintenance but that doesn’t mean keep the guy most likely to make fake work orders for himself.

Maybe better sites
I can only speak for my location, but it is the most miserable place I have ever worked. As well as being the most hostile towards employees. The only thing they do well is pay good wages. There is absolutely zero work life balance, and management has a everyone is replaceable mentality towards employees, and repeat it often at plant wide meetings

Decent place
Decent place to work. Decent hours. Not much incentive besides base hourly rate. Not much room for advancement. Most floor workers hit their ceiling in a few years.
