You will never hear management say good job, or thanks for staying late last night. Immediate supervision is always in a bad mood, which causes a painfully miserable environment to work in.
Support from management
Employees do not get a say in anything. Management is very controlling when it comes to having all authority and power. If you work here you will spend all day walking on eggshells and trying your best not to communicate management. If you run into a problem it's best to figure it out on your own. Because the other guys will gossip and say you don't know anything behind your back, or the management will belittle/ demoralize you with harsh criticism.
Their are a few guys who do stick together and help each other out. But I've seen to many times when guys will rat each other out to management. The shop is full of brown nosers who will make others look bad to try and one up themselves.
Freedom to work independently
Their is always plenty of work and core time available. You are left alone for the most part as long as your not making scrap.
Attitude towards older colleagues
This company will hire anyone with a little experience. The just need numbers/ bodies to keep producing parts.
Their really is no where to grow unless you are related to the family. It's unfortunately a dead end operator job.
Overall compensation for your work
Pay is kept as low as possible, don't expect more than a 1.5% raise a year and merit raises are unheard of because management does not recognize hard work. If your a group leader they do not compensate you for it. It's more responsibility with no pay.
Office / Work Environment
Very clean shop, almost always have what you need to do the job.
The want you to work 50 hours a week, depending on who you are you can work less without being hassled. They only give 6 payed holidays. And they don't count vacation time or holidays to your 40 hour pay week. So consequently you lose 8 hours of overtime since overtime is anything after 40 there. It really hurts your pay checks.
Employees are like whining complaining women. Everything is negative every day.
Work is steady and company is stable.
Work is relatively easy. It would help if employees were shown some appreciation.
