Support from management
When I was there targets and goals were not attainable because you couldn't get upper management buy in. It was their way or the highway. Leadership was terrible!
Overall compensation for your work
Salaries are lower than average. Benefits are ok but not great.
Office / Work Environment
Safety was always a priority and heavily valued. Sometimes it was hard to get upper management to get what was truly needed but they tried to do their best.
Work hours were all over the map. If you were a new employee you got what they scheduled you for. The supervisors try to take family life in to consideration but ultimately if you applied for the job you knew that they couldn't work around your schedule, you have to work around the schedule they give you. With more seniority you got better time off. Vacations revolved around seniority as well. If you want off and another person of seniority wanted off the person with the highest seniority would get off.
Since layoffs and strikes this company in Greenville does not have a good reputation! Employees were always complaining about the company.
Very high risk! Many layoffs, a lot of "restructuring" and employee strikes. Would often hire temporary employees and fire them before they would have to hire them full time.
Safety is valued a lot. The training is monthly but it is the same boring lessons year after year.
Monotonous work but that's what you get working in a plant. If you want something challenging you would have to change departments/jobs.
Inclusive / Diverse
Very diverse company!
Suggestions for improvement
- Listen to your employees and stop restructuring. Value your employees instead of yelling at them all the time.
What I like about the company
The only thing I liked were some of the employees I worked with.
What I dislike about the company
Management was horrible. The plant manager is a bully. Upper management never takes in to consideration the thoughts of the little man.
