Shadow of its former self struggling to keeps the lights on
Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Hebron, OH – November 22, 2014
Downward communication from upper management was non-existent, reluctant to share bad news.
Hardest part of the job was dealing with the ERP system which was designed for a low mix, high volume operation while the reality was a high mix, low volume business.
Coworkers were competent, optimistic, cooperative and all had team spirit, in spite of business conditions.
Until recently, the COO was a globe-trotting road warrior and out of touch with operations on the plant floor, and unaware of the background and work history of most operations staff.
11 paid holidays, 5 paid PTO days, Good 401K plan.
Healthcare plan was a poor value, Hourly wages of direct labor remain $2.00 per hour below local standards, making it hard to attract and retain the talent needed.
