Company Culture

Get foreman off the street, and play racial card for hiring and promotion!!

Support from management

Afraid to get dirty and be seen talking to anyone who has independent thoughts about how to benefit the company.

Teamwork

Old hands...great to work with, new kids...just want a check.

Freedom to work independently

Have to work with your partner, no problem there.....must work without management because they know less than you do!

Internal Communication

Get ignored most of the time by upper management, lower management is clueless!!

Attitude towards older colleagues

Young hires don't know or care. Have no pride in their work or respect.

Career Development

None.....won't promote from inside....pull people off the streets....clueless!!!

Overall compensation for your work

Good pay and benefits.....but don't get hurt there....they pull it all away and cancel you quick!

Office / Work Environment

Dirty.

Environmental Friendliness

Are you kidding!!!! It's a carbon black plant!!!!

Work-Life Balance

None....force you to work overtime at their convenience and last minute notification.

Company Image

SNOW JOB!!! EPA would have a field day along with OSHA!!

Job Security

Depends on the mood of management that day!

Workplace Safety

Too cheap to care about Safety issues. 90% reactionary and 10% pro active.

Inclusive / Diverse

Too diverse, if you understand the meaning.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Listen to the workers, work with them, spend money to make money, treat all workers fairly.

What I like about the company

My co-workers!! Best group of people I know!!!

What I dislike about the company

Being lied to, broken promises, being ignored, no leadership, management covering its own a**.
