It could be better with better supervisor.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
When they let a supervisor's wife work under him at the same shift. It's time to leave. We all know they play favoritism and he can't write his wife up for not paying attention to her surroundings. It's a factory work environment. They want you to work long hours for long time 5 days a week. I guess it's ok when you don't have other things outside of work to do. It's a poor place to learn how to work.

Tiring

The parking lot is so bad feels like you are in a ninja warrior show hopping over the holes. Hardly get any raises and new people are starting out at higher pay than the ones who have been there way longer. Always running out of wood as well. Putting more and more work on us without any extra pay or benefits.

Pros

Got orders

Cons

No life outside of there

Affordable insurance. Weekly attendance bonus. Slow to give raises.

Affordable insurance. Weekly attendance bonus. Slow to give raises. They have no problem with employing you even if you are not legal as long as you have some kind of documentation.

Good place to work

It's a good place to work but sometimes new people make more money than the people that has worked there for a while. But for the most part is it a good place to work you just need to like to work

Pros

Secure job

Cons

Managment sometimes doesn't have the nessesary experience

Pros

Decent bosses

Cons

Terrible pay and co workers

Very hostile work environment

I was not trained properly at all, and when I made mistakes instead of teaching and correcting me the supervisors talked negatively about me and fixed them their selves. There is a lot of negativity which makes it stressful and hard to focus on the job. Very hostile work environment.

Family Company and Unless You're Family, You're Nothing

Working for the owner and family was absurd. I would frequently catch my supervisor (family owner), feet propped up on desk and sleeping. My expectations were simply to make him look good to his family.

Excellent cooperative workplace environment

Analyze workload of the day and how orders have progressed in past 24 hours. Organize & move workers to where most needed. Wonderful co workers and labor force. Most of the time we needed more workers. As a result of being short of employees we were forced into a lot of overtime including saturdays. Hardest part of job was frequent breakdown of equipment.

Pros

Flexible commuicating management

Cons

At times, Orders overwhelming

Not a good place to work.

The management was awful. The manager didn't work well with people and would normally just sit in his office all day and would bark orders about getting more work done. They changed the schedule all the time with very little notice. We would work 10 to 12 hour days 5 or 6 days a week. They hardly gave room for advancement. The money was horrible and the manager went on a buddy system where the more he liked you, the more you got paid.

not a good place to work

I set up and ran machines. Stacked wood.I learned that no matter how good of a job you do this company does not really care about their employees. Management was lackluster and someone a few months before I started had gotten hurt rather badly( must have sued ) so when I pulled a muscle in my back they really acted hostile.

Pros

decent pay

Cons

it was very hot in the summer, and you were not allowed any fans where as at other companies doing the same work you were.
