Two rule books. The one 75% have to follow and live by. Then if you are caught in a situation and break one you are wrote up, or suspended or even fired. Then the one for the other 25%. Do what is convenient for yourself , never worry about company punishing you in anyway. The one where you are expected to be there on time everyday and never miss or the one where you can be late 10 times in a year and miss 7 days and still get your raises when the ones who work on time everyday get theirs. Overall leadership is poor at best. Good at pointing out faults no so much for saying good job on working all year with no accidents and being productive and taking care of our equipment. They honestly think they have 4 good drivers. They are rewarded in several ways. Every other driver is a number.

In Customer Service at the Midway plant, the majority of them don't speak to production floor workers and referred to them as "peasants." Sad because those "peasants" do the hard work while they sit in an office. Too much like a soap opera. Treat people according to skill set and as human beings, not putting them down or discharging them because they don't fit in a childish "high school clique."
