Know that this company has a very very high turnover rate. There are many reasons for that. Just a few reasons: low pay, no pay raises in 4 years, no structure, good ol boy system, selective enforcement of company policies, no team building, no incentives, unskilled middle management.

First and foremost I would hire middle managers that have actual management skills or read differently "people skills". This company is void of real managers in their Laporte office and full of buddy system managers. If you're one of the boys you can even get away with failing a drug test and be rehired as a department manager.
Second, I would pay my employees based on merit. You could start with having annual reviews that are more than just a formality. Constructive performance review are a way to grow your employees and allow for just compensation if warranted. Current process involves employees to self evaluate and then its never spoken of again. This can all be contributed to the first paragraph.... poor unskilled middle management.
