The Litchfield facility is depressing and dreadful. The morale is as low as it can get, with employees snitching on each other all too frequently. Overtime is excessive during the summer months, vacant positions are hard to fill. Nobody wants to work there!
The operations manager micromanages and is clueless to how manufacturing is run; the shipping lead pits shippers against one another, complaining about whoever isn't there at the time. Very unprofessional. He likes to sit at his desk and let everybody else do the work, which creates unnecessary overtime for others. Granted, he works o.t. as well, and makes 'easy money'. ITW would be wise to install cameras in their shipping department to see what goes on.
It is against company policy to smoke in the building, yet this was ignored. It is against company policy to attempt to have another clock you in, yet it was attempted. They will throw you under the bus, but their own doings are never exposed!
This was the WORST job I ever, ever had. Glad to be out of there.
vacation time, sick days
excessive o.t., horrific morale, backbiting
