When I was there, the company was owned by an investment firm and managed as such. I handled multiple layoffs, and terminated some of the best people I've ever known. When I left they hadn't given raises in several years, and I don't believe that's changed. The management staff has had nearly 100% turnover in the last 4 years, which says a lot.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – May 5, 2019
Production manager only cares about numbers, lacks people skills (two-faced), and harbors a poor attitude towards 2nd and 3rd shifts. The work itself is fairly easy and can become monotonous. The majority of day shift treats the other shifts with disrespect and disregard. Very high turnover on the off shifts. Upper management knows the right things to say, but very little actually is enacted or enforced on the production floor. Lastly, the safety is a joke. Numerous people have had major injuries and little is done to resolve safety hazards.
