Decent pay and benefits. Not much else

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There seems to be a culture of disrespect towards employees. Manager and supervisors never learned how to talk to people in a respectful manner. I don't usually complain about employers but the management is definitely bad here. They take too many liberties with employees schedules but won't help when employees need a little flexibility. They seem to forget that people have lives outside of their work life. Nothing is appreciated...simply expected. The job itself is not bad.

Pros

Pay and benefits

Cons

Management is terrible. You're really just a number.

Good pay. Horrible management and staff.

Care to share?

Help people considering your employer. Share your experience.

Great pay and benefits but that’s all.

The only good things about this job is the pay and the benefits. Other than that management is a joke from top to bottom. They talk about safety so much yet when there is an issue they go around it 99% of the time without addressing it because they want to push numbers.

Pros

Pay and Benefits

Cons

Everything else.

Productive

Great group of guys I worked with loved working there but, unfortunately I had a hardship very personal which caused me to miss work. Manager and supervisor said it was OK but, turned their backs on me. Human resource is a joke.

Pros

Pay

Cons

Short breaks, health insurance, management, human resources

Keep to yourself and just do your job

Upper management runs the plant with their egos instead of those heads. Lower management has no backbone and will blame employees for any errors. Don't trust anyone in management. Anything you say will be though out the plant by the next day.

Unsafe

Unsafe and know care for human life. They donot appreciate there employees at all. Favorites with friends advance. Positions constantly cycle around. Not friendly at all.

Pros

Get paid

Cons

Selfish work place

Really Cool

The job always had OT, which is good. The job was fast paced so time came and went. The managers let you do the work without micro-managing, you know whats needs to be done.

very hot workplace, management did not communicate with employees and voices not heard

There was absolutely no communication or respect given to employees. Jobs were not trained and it was expected that someone new already knew the ins and outs of the workplace.

Pros

Monday-Friday

Cons

no opportunity for advancement, not compensated for work done

High stress production enviroment

I would get to work around 6;15am every day,and would have a meeting at 7am. There would be meetings throughout the day and really wouldn't get my work done till 5pm rolled around. Typically stayed till 7pm everyday and worked on Saturdays. I did enjoy this job and felt very productive but was not a good balance for my family. Coworkers were equally as hard working trying to meet a common goal. The hardest part of my job were the hours I spent at the office.

Pros

Intrinsic value- felt productive and good about myself

Cons

The long hours.
