Only good workers are leaving due to lazy working doing nothing and good workers always do everything cuz at end of the day if it’s not done it bits you.

Some workers need to pick up the slack because of them we get no money or chance to rise in the company. It needs fixing people.

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.

Treatment of employees needs to be better. In the Midway, TN plant, they need to seriously let the scheduling manager quit running the plant! She doesn't like you, you're gone! GM won't say anything out of fear and good people are stabbed in the back daily because of this.

Of course better pay would retain some, but pay isn't really everything. A pat on the back or a little recognition, would really go a long way.
Upper management will currently walk right by employees and not even speak to them, at least they could say hello...

Remember that employees are people that have lives outside of work. You can't get blood from a rock. Do not work people into the ground. Be reminded of what each person has contributed to get you and the company where they are today
