Pay and treatment of employees.
This company is alright. However management is not on one accord. The blatant favoritism is in your face without care. Workers need to be paid more
Pros
Work shifts
Cons
Point system, blatant favoritism

Worst job I've ever had
To put into perspective, I am an experienced, hard working, educated employee that has never worked at a position for less than 5 years and I have never worked in a more toxic and deceitful work environment. I barely made it a full year. During my short time there I have seen management and HR gossiping about employees, blatant lies and lack of accountability, bullying, sexism, racism and a general disregard for the safety and well being of their employees. There were several GM's and OPS managers in my short span of time there. Maintenence on machines and the building itself are atrocious. No raises are given unless you threaten to quit. Lay offs were made based on seniority. They'd rather keep someone cheaper even if you had been there for 15 years. Management is incompetent at best and corporate management is even worse. No rewards for honesty or hard work. You will be lied to about promotions and raises. The cliche culture and toxic work environment is shameful. Seriously the worst company and location i have ever worked for.

Horable place to work
Very disloyal company. Upper management in the bedford hts location is pathetic. They will stab there employees in the back. They don't care about employee safety all they care about is production. STAY AWAY !!!!

management is only there to keep people from killing each other
worse then prison. training is almost non existent. if your lucky to be trained its by a person that does not know how to read a blue print let alone a ruler.

Was not one of my better places to work.
Management does not care about employees as I feel they should. I had to let employees go for reasons that I felt were not justified. Management did not try to help staff.

Big turn over
This company used to be much better. The plant manager changes his so called rules. Pay increases are 0 to 2% annually. Early start for first shift. Thats nice that you finish early. 2nd shift finishes at 9 pm . It is hard work hot inside in the summer cold in the winter. Its a good place to get a quick job but not a retire type of place

Good company, poorly managed
Most managers are in the position because they have a friend in there, is not who you know but ....
Good benefits but don't expect them to listen if an issue comes up.

Favoritism
Very clicky, no advancement unfair pay, hours change without notice. Only get ahead if you flirt with supervisors. Management never knows whats going on and leads are not properly trained

It was a good job.
It was a good job. Not weather controlled. Had a good point system. My manager was awesome. He was very understanding of situations. My pay covered my bills.

Waste of time
Mngmt sucks unless you are related to floor supervisor or upper mngmt in office. Drop material from overhead crane from 6+ feet while mngmt watching it's ok we family. Maintenance suck . Personnel walks up w/ flashlight shines on object .working now. Everyone on smart phone or smart watch . But nonetheless office people do not care. OSHA now involved

Work and life
It was hard for me because they were able to switch you from a shift you were used to. And take down your pay. The benefits and start pay was really great. But I needed my shift to work out with me still being able to be in my sons life

Great environment, just not enough pay for the required job. I’ve been here 1 1/2 years and never had a raise and I’ve been asking for one for months now and I have 3 excellent reviews to prove it

productive place to work
one definitely stays busy during the workday, from cleaning, to grinding, building skids, operating a forklift (if one passes a test), to unlading trucks, and, possibly, running a burn table.
Pros
free lunches every now and again, great health benefits
