Which Level of Hades Is This?
Finishing Technician (Current Employee) – Midland, MI – April 4, 2019
Training is subpar, to put it politely. Serious lack of communication in the plant, across all levels. Prepare to be written up almost immediately so the company can get out of giving a raise once the 60 trial days pass. Unless you already know someone working there who is in good with the boss, expect to be looked down on and treated as if you do not exist by basically all of the higher-ups. Blatant favoritism is shown on a daily basis; some employees can get away with doing nothing for a good chunk of the shift while others are called out for standing around for a few seconds to catch their breath. Depending on who is the machine operator, you may or may not get breaks, which are supposed to be a requirement, with some caring more about the numbers than anything else. Machines are quite outdated and require more effort than should be necessary nowadays. Company shows no appreciation of the hard work put in and the toll that it takes on one's body, looking at employees as disposable. QUAD will essentially become your life, like it or not. HR is unhelpful. Most coworkers are fairly decent, but there are a few with a serious chip on their shoulders. It is just not a good, productive environment overall.
Improper training, lack of communication, favoritism, attitudes, unfair treatment, no breaks some days, outdated machines, stressful, no work-life balance, unhelpful HR department
