Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire employees instead of using temp services. Provide more training to decrease defects against new employees.

What I like about the company

Long-time job security. Good pay and benefits.

What I dislike about the company

Too much overtime which interferes with personal life. They use too many temps so employees do not stay long. I feel if they hired through the door they would get employees that would stay.
