Company Culture

Treated as a number. Although this is a union shop a 6 month new hire has just as much seniority as a 40 year veteran. Too many examples to advise why you should remove this company from consideration.

Support from management

Managements support consists of having an experienced worker provide support since management has no working knowledge.

Teamwork

I give teamwork a good score because the experienced employees teach the new hires what management does not even know what to teach.

Freedom to work independently

You are told what to do and when to do it including a buzzer that tells you when you wash your hands, when your permitted to leave your department for a 10 minute break or a 20 minute lunch along with another buzzer telling you when to get back to your machine.

Internal Communication

Could be better if management could communicate what the guy on the floor needs to know. Knowledgeable leadership is better than unrealized boasting.

Gender Equality

Same answer as the inclusive and diversification answer above. Hourly female workers are segregated as much as they can be within managements financial ‘desirable’ limitations.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Just a number unless you are a yes man

Career Development

Depends on who in the shop you become friends with

Overall compensation for your work

Depends on your hire date. Two tiered pay scale, younger employees will never reach the competition of older employees

Office / Work Environment

Salary and hourly employees are your typical white colar vs union worker, no team work for the greater benefit of the company or job security

Environmental Friendliness

Depends on the grade school type clicks you become friends with

Work-Life Balance

Work life is not bad as you work an 8 hour shift, punch out and forget about your work until the next day.
Overtime is usually available, then punch out and forget about the place.

Company Image

Of all competitors in this industry there is only one that is currently less respected.

Job Security

Considering limited funds to invest back into the company, who knows if the bakery will have enough flour to bake bread.

Handicapped Accessibility

Behind the times

Workplace Safety

OSHA has been called in enough time through the years to keep them on their toes.

Challenging Work

Some departments are

Inclusive / Diverse

They will hire anyone who will accept a low compensation package and become a fenced in sheep.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Sell the business to someone who knows how to run a company

What I like about the company

Steady income for many years

What I dislike about the company

The worst is the current management
