- Gallo Glass Company28.Mar 2018
The first two "Company Values" are Integrity and Respect, those are just words to this company. There is no Integrity or respect for the Union workers or even the middle management at this company.
Support from management
Used to be much better.
The company is trying hard to do this but it seems that if you do not agree with their direction/solution of this problem at hand, the company will solve it their way and will ignore our input.
Freedom to work independently
The work I do, I get to work independently because of the short staff that we have.
Most of the time we get our information from the janitors, these are the shadow workers that clean up the management offices. Even the simple things cannot be told in advance, example, checking the fire alarm systems throughout the plant.
In the past you could work yourself from the bottom of this company and become Plant Manager and/or Vice President of Gallo Glass. They stopped hiring apprentice maintenance because there is no entry level personnel to sign up for that job opportunity. There is currently employees that want to have a skilled trade job but the company refuses to post those jobs even though many many tradesmen have retired or have left to apply their trade to other companies. The younger maintenance personnel that have left mostly because of better pay, benefits, and working conditions.
Overall compensation for your work
I have a pension, but all new hires Do Not.
On the union side it is good, no manditory overtime, but on the management side you are expected to work on your scheduled days off...without compensation...or else.
Don't know anymore do to the direction or this company.
Each and every day there's something new to learn and experience.
Suggestions for improvement
- Practice the Respect and Integrity...talk the talk and walk the walk, those two words don't mean anything unless you practice them each and everyday. Increase the moral of your work force...a happy work force is a more productive work force.
What I like about the company
Steady paycheck okay benefits, but some these benefits have been slowly being takeing away. Coworkers are GREAT! Willingness to those who are your coworkers to help out and to mentor you.
What I dislike about the company
Nobody really knows the direction of this company except the owner. Most or their middle management team is in the dark and concerned about the direction and their jobs.
