Management was flexible on overtime on Saturdays if given previous notice.Work life balance can be strenuous sometimes especially for 2nd shift workers because of quick turnaround for Saturday mornings.Getting off at midnight and being back at 10am.Coworkers were friendly and helpful for most part.Very hot in summertime.Decent benefits and vacation days rack up faster than other jobs i've had.
Paid luch.Company giveaways.Repeatable machines good tools and equipment.
Unorganized.Lack of accountability sometimes.No climate control

there is no equality in human resources, they make exception of people when hiring someone, if you are going to do an interview make sure you like the bitter woman, after that the company and co-workers is super good as long as you do not have to deal with HR. Management?? Arrogant sometimes.

Was a somewhat enjoyable place to work until the management turnover a few years ago.. The new managers could careless about your opinions/suggestions and want you to put them on a pedestal. There is a lot of backstabbing and seems the only way to advance these days. The work life balance is nonexistance. Everyone is expected to work most weekends and 9-10 hrs a day. There was some hope when the new company bought the business from PMI but they kept the managers that were the issue. The culture there is miserable and the turn around in manufacturing is laughable. You can not have a good quality product if every other week you have new poorly training people producing parts.

Earned promotion. Never allowed to move into new role. They liked me where I was. Anyone who reads this will know who is writing it. Changed insurance and dropped prescription benefits. Forgot to tell the employees. Co workers are great when they aren’t complaining. 10 hour work days and 8 hour Saturdays are the norm. If you don’t like it, there’s the door. Wish I’d have left sooner
Hold you down . Management arrogance. Terrible benefits

Manufacturing environment is toxic. Cut throat and negative. Management is unprofessional along with everyone in HR. You are just a person who can be replaced and you are just making a number not quality for the customer. Now I understand the turnover in manufacturing.
Paid lunch. Knowledgeable old employees management doesn’t acknowledge
With a few major things revised this could be somewhere to have a great career. However, when dealing with customers who have high expectations and the production department who does not care about the customers expectations, it creates a difficult working environment with many issues between management teams.

Its sad to see over a year after i worked at this place nothing changed....kids will be kids i guess...this whole company needs to grow up and most of those folks need to loose 100 pounds or so..lots of Wales in management
Not much of a work to life balance. Management's attitude is if you don't want to work the mandatory 58-60 hours a week we'll find someone who will. No career advancement opportunities unless your willing to "throw someone under the bus" and brown nose. Plant manager and management seem to have a chip on their shoulder.
