If you excel at your job and want to advance in this company, good luck. Management will hinder any growth within the company to keep you "stuck" in your position. The lazier you are or if you mess up often you have a better chance to reach management then your co worker who works hard and rarely messes up. If you get into the "good ol boy" club you will reach management, whether or not you are qualified. They have a company handbook and policies in place, but rarely follow what is written.
If you have any previous experience don't offer any knowledge as that is frowned upon. They want people oblivious to standard operating procedures, that way they can tell you how they want things done even if its dangerous or completely wrong.
It could be a good place to work at if new management was in place. Management that knows what they are doing and realize that if they treat their employees with respect verse treating them as expendable the company would see an increase in production and morale. But, nothing will change because its a buddy system.
