What I like about the company

I've learned about dealing with unions. We have changed our safety practices and have gone 3.5+ years without a major safety incident. I have managers that support me. I've grown personally and professionally.

What I dislike about the company

Work life balance is an issue. We have too much turnover at Corporate.

Company Culture

Big disconnect what the culture is at corporates versus what is expected and really happens at the local level

Support from management

Local is great

Teamwork

Local team work is great. Not much help from the corporate team.

Freedom to work independently

Empowered to get it done otherwise it doesn’t happen.

Internal Communication

Communication is pretty good at the local level and from the top down.

Work-Life Balance

There is no balance.

Job Security

Lots of talk about closures over the years so no one really knows what’s coming.

Handicapped Accessibility

Old buildings so they do the best they can

Workplace Safety

Safety is a priority
