Very bad
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) –  Nampa, IDMarch 20, 2019
Poor management. They treat people like dirt and are rude. Does not at all care for employees. Lack of job training and overall just a slave shop. Very very racist people in management all run by French people that hate Mexicans and black people.

Management will micromanage to the most extreme!
Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Nampa, IDMarch 2, 2019
They will hire more managers to watch over those doing the work, but only so much can be done by those who work the floor. Benefits are amazing, health, dental and 401k. They give you paid vacation and sick leave but you are penalized for using it by assigning negative points to you, after so many points your fired. They will give you a core schedule but then expect you to change it to accommodate there needs without regards to your time off. Even amongst management they contradict each other. Your bosses boss will tell you there is unlimited overtime but then your boss will write you up for working overtime. Political to the most extreme, if you like gossip, being stabbed in the back by peers and a everyone for themselves type of attitude, this is the place to go! What’s printed in company rules and guidelines is then ignored and told to employees that they don’t apply to you, even though the handbook says so. HR does nothing for the employees as they won’t get their bonuses if they help employees instead of the company.
Pros
Health, dental insurance
Cons
Micromanaged, no work/life balance, discrimination is acceptable to management

Great company in a great industry
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Buffalo, NYNovember 18, 2018
Great company in a great industry. Overall a rewarding experience and nurturing company. Definitely more of a lean structure given the size of the company with some international opportunities if you're willing to relocate and in the right function.
Pros
Great people and longtime employees hold down the fort!
Cons
Advancement opportunities exist but may not go at the pace you expect

A good company but difficult to advance

Pros
paycheck, adequate benefits but could be better
Cons
lot of forced overtime due to poor scheduling and hiring

Bad management, they don’t know how to schedule people, you’ll never have the same day off. 6 days a week/12 hr shifts. You never know when you’ll be going home. You get overworked.

Don’t work here!
Operator (Current Employee) –  Nampa, IDAugust 10, 2018
What management?! Your week to week schedule is never consistent. There are days when you get out 4-5 hours later than you expect. Overtime is nice but it’s not easy when you have children. I’m very lucky my child care is understanding. You get some nice co-workers. Paid weekly is nice and so are the benefits. Wish they had better time management and more of a consistent schedule.

Pay is decent, but job sucks
Operator 3 (Current Employee) –  Nampa, IDAugust 1, 2018
You are expected to pick up other workers slack, you are expected to be available 24/7. 2/3s employees dont do anything while other third have to complete their job and do other employees. Have no respect for family life outside of work. Management is a joke, don't help, and dont know how to do the job you're expected to do. Which in turn means no help from them. Horrible place to work.!
Pros
nothing

I feel like I have been micromanaged and under appreciated. It a very French culture with out any efforts to follow US customs. You will advance much faster if you are French.

Very stressful. Plan to have multiple anxiety attacks if you work here.
General Laborer (Current Employee) –  Nampa, IDJuly 3, 2018
They have great pay and great benefits.
Poor management.
They are completely understaffed for the daily workload.
Poor communication is a common occurance here.
A good point though... You'll have job security as long as you have good attendance and don't annoy anyone in management, even if you are a terrible worker.
Management definitely plays favorites here. Dont expect to move up unless you kiss up. Excellent work ethics gains you nothing unless you become friends with someone in management.
Pros
Super benefits, excellent pay rate
Cons
Horribly stressful. Too long hours. Poor management. Poor management to worker communication
