Suggestions for improvement

  • I personally would like to see management get more hands on in the day-to-day operations. We hear that departments are shorthanded so they begin moving people- management should jump in and help instead of telling us to work faster when we're already going as fast as we can. Many of the machines run slow, which cuts down on our production. If the machines were reworked to run faster we could get more done. One-on-one meetings with supervisors (as in all the workers in a given cell with their supervisor and team lead) to address disrespectful behaviors would probably clear up a lot of miscommunication and help us to understand each other better. If the employee asks for something (like fans), the supervisor should personally come to assess the situation instead of passing it off to someone else. We need to see that they do actually care about our needs.

What I like about the company

The majority of co-workers are very helpful in training newcomers and will help others if asked to do so. The work isn't particularly difficult but it is tedious; it takes a while for "muscle memory" to kick in so you are able to achieve speed in production eventually. There are occasional parties for holidays in which a free meal is provided and sometimes prizes are given out after games are played.

What I dislike about the company

Management often ignores floor workers requests. An example would be that in my department (only myself and one other person work in the cell) 2 of our 3 fans stopped working and over the course of a month and a half I had spoken to at least 5 managers/supervisors asking that the issue be addressed as it is well over 100 degrees (heat index) in the plant on many days during the summer. We were finally told by a maintenance tech (the only person really interested in helping us) that a supervisor had used some very colorful language in regards to me and my coworker and we would not be getting any replacement fans, though there were plenty available. Floor workers aren't even acknowledged many times if we ask a question, or we are told "I'll check on it when I have time" but we never receive an answer. One of the company's big "strong points" is that no one, regardless of position, is above anyone else and "respect" is pushed heavily in plant meetings. I have seen managers, team leaders, and supervisors all be very disrespectful towards floor workers. It is a daily occurrence. It would be very helpful if all employees were treated equally, as in all had to work on the floor for at least a couple 8 hour shift a week. I think the supervisors, ect would have much more respect for the floor workers and the work that they do if they had to do our jobs and not spend most of their time in an air conditioned office while the rest of us struggle to stay upright from the heat.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better planning and budgeting so they can prevent additional layoffs. Listen to employees ideas on how to better production. Being open and honest with employees about possible layoffs....we have families to provide for! The last 2 layoffs were blind layoffs and a couple of those people had special needs kids or parents they were caring for.

What I like about the company

They do a Thanksgiving/Christmas turkey check which is nice. They try to do something yearly for the employees

What I dislike about the company

Upper Management not listening or getting employees opinions on how to improve production. HR giving people a run around about different positions that are open, benefits, etc.

Company Culture

There is no trust because the support of having someone to blame instead of a root cause approach.

Support from management

Managers are unethical and bullies.

Teamwork

Supports a blame culture.

Freedom to work independently

Work loads are not managed causing unrealistic overtime.

Career Development

Managers are not mentoring employees to become the next.

Work-Life Balance

Cannot make any type of plans because of a excessive amount of overtime wit very few days off.

Company Image

Very negative reviews in several review web sits / Overturn is extremely high.

Job Security

Job security is great because they always need employees because of the high overturn.

Challenging Work

Took pride in my work but it was never appreciated by my direct manager.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove managers that have destroyed employee morale and rule by the old school iron fist mentality. Todays business world demands training, employee involvement , and most of all respect.

What I like about the company

Benefits.

What I dislike about the company

A management style that over defines the word bullying. No credit for work done. No time for training. No support in trying to advance.
