Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove the antiquated toxicity, treat the employees as valued team-members instead of just faceless pawns, and employ an all-inclusive diversity hiring routine. It will take a lot of work, but I believe the public image of the company can still be saved.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the 8am-5pm Monday-Friday work schedule, and most holidays are paid days off. I also enjoyed working with all the employees.

What I dislike about the company

There is a toxicity in the atmosphere from upper management, particularly from most of the owners. One of the brothers is usually kind, while the other one can at times seem completely unhinged. The elder owners barely even see the employees as people. Hiring diversity is also embarrassing, and they hardly ever give anyone raises even after years of employment.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to do a better job on the up keep of the building and fix things right away and not just have a quick fix. They also need to give raises. There are some people that have worked there for over 8 years and have only received 2 raises. They can give the employees a better break room. Have a training manual put into place. Not have an orientation 2 or so months after a person has been working there.

What I like about the company

The thing I like most is my schedule. I work 8-5. They also give us 2 days off for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I do like how my managers boss is on the same floor as us and comes out and talks to us. It is like talking to another coworker.
