Employees don't like

The people. I was there for 2 years. I finally got tired of complaining to HR and nothing would be done. They do not play fair. You're just a number there. You can and will be replaced. I quit. Moved on. They money is great but not worth the stress. It was leave or go to jail for assult.
I hate that I was very loyal to this company for 11yrs as a temp.and they never wanted to hiried me on SMH.wasted a decade there.
Bringing in manager's that dont know anything about the company or work with employees.
You never have a real full shift and you get off too early not quite making 40 hours a week
Unprofessional behavior and abusive treatment from management

Suggestions for improvement

To many to say st this time and besides they won’t and haven’t changed
meaningful pay raise instead of forcing overtime work
Please please they need to care about the employees who been there for years with them,and loyal to the company and hired them.
To have sturdy working hours unless walking back and forth to get the same pieces
Offer early retirement. You must have some type of people skills in managing

Career Development

Career Development rating

Career Development is rated with an average of 2.8 points (based on 8 reviews).


Definitely not a career development for some people there, cause they dont pay attention to them.

Temps had very little room for advancement in the facility I was located in. Becoming a permanent seems to be more luck than skill, waiting for a spot to open.

They reimburse for schools

You learn from scratch and by yourself. No support.
1
If you're not part of the group of friends you will not advance.
