Internal Communication

They give you zero notice on weekend work, even calling you at home telling you there is mandatory weekend work, don't plan on doing anything else.

Overall compensation for your work

This place is a firm believer of paying their employees the least amount possible. They have been known to even give pay cuts out.
Their pay reviews are based on "attendance" they say. So, if you have great attendance for a year expect a quarter or less raise, which is what they give people with bad attendance too.

Work-Life Balance

They don't expect you to have a life if you work here. Zero notice on weekend work, and expect to come in early and/or late with zero notice.

Job Security

The turnover rate is so horrible here, but that doesn't stop them from firing anyone for the silliest of reasons.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need to give their employees bonus packages, better pay reviews, and more hands on training.

What I like about the company

It was easy work. Some managers are pretty decent people.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of bonuses and pay is not good at all. Training was very poor.

Company Culture

Good, because they gave everyone a chance to move up in this company if you were capable and knew basically all the jobs.

Support from management

There was no support from management after train unless machine break down.

Teamwork

Yes employees did in fact work together I would help another colleague and there were trainers around to help workers perform jobs.

Freedom to work independently

Yes, that was the problem you were left alone once management felt you were pretty good at the job.

Internal Communication

There was lack of communication with management, I guess they had to get to know you just as you would want to get to know them.

Gender Equality

This company treated men and woman the same.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes there were alot of older people that were new hires when I went back the second time.

Career Development

Yes, there were to women that advance as trainees and they started out just like regular employees.

Overall compensation for your work

No, not at all I believe this company could have add a dollar extra to start, because temp -service paid more than they did, for jobs with minor responsibilities than this company had as a plas0tic machine operator.

Office / Work Environment

Yes, the management human Resources and management offices were pretty good.

Environmental Friendliness

Absolutely they were the most recycling company I ever work for.

Work-Life Balance

Yes, The human resource lady was amazing and had consideration she hired me a second time my car went down when I first started, and she re-hired me and excuse me

Company Image

Not, really because the pay wasn't good and it the responsibilities and some of the machine they had employees to operate was not easy, this company need to stop being cheap and pay employees, for what they want the responsibilities they want employees to do at this company.

Job Security

No, because they can never get no one to stick around because they don't pay nothing. They have a lot of people quit than stay at this company.

Handicapped Accessibility

No, only handicapped on bathroom door stalls

Workplace Safety

Yes, so far I seen there was safety practice and yes there were trainees on the production just to train new hires, they were pretty good on safety.

Challenging Work

Yes, I was proud because this company made sure you were properly train they had trainees just to train new people on jobs.

Inclusive / Diverse

Well, probably I wouldn't know because I couldn't complain, there was nothing to complain with this company besides the pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Nothing, the management was pretty decent especially the human Resources lady Dana she was awesome and care about your personal problems. She gave people chances, it's just they didn't pay enough for employees worth and responsibilities that about it, but the company was fine.

What I like about the company

I like about Hicks because it was not a large facility and everyone was all about working.

What I dislike about the company

I didn't like they small cafeteria without no vendor machine it was really really tight, were only 10 people can barely fit inside there.
