Unprofessional strained place to work
Maintenance Mechanic (Former Employee) – Frankfort, IN – May 12, 2019
Corporation gives each facility a reduced budget year to year which is always less than previous year. Management team strives to meet that new annual budget. In essence management is "flying the budget" instead of "flying the business", and it shows. The budget is only one sliver of the aggregate business process. Production machine operators are strained by forced overtime, lack of parts for maintenance to apply toward production machinery, unprofessional images of the production lines, system control panels, lack of labeling of operational system control switches, lack of electrical and junction boxes and might as well be hand crayoned circuit breaker panels. Contractors that come into the facility must be lowest bidders, "flying the budget", because the poor quality work performed reflects that. Company continues to grow in revenue and facility expansion and at the same time reduces benefits to employees. Lack of pride of what products are made. "We just make chips". It use to be "There is a smile behind every bag", well not at this facility that makes them. Training is not extensive. "We are not a training facility". Very unprofessional qualifications and review system. I wish major improvements to frito-lay so that maybe it will become a better place to work for my former co-wrorkers, but its going to need "major" improvements. Couple suggestions to frito-lay, corporate leaders need to come down off their high horses and meet all the workers that get the job done, adopt training and qualifications processes like United Air Lines and United States Air Force, pay attention to "human factors" and start sharing the wealth of frito-lay wuth its hourly employees.
