Company Culture

People get treated based on who they know. If you're no t related to the owner or plant manager, you will NOT get hired and will remain a temp for the entire time you work there. There are temps who have been there for over 17 years - that's not an exception but is common.

Support from management

Management doesn't care about the employees. Workers making $9/hour are expected to make enough quality parts, even though the machinery is old and outdated. Support from management is non-existent d workers are on their own. Plant managers like to hide this from the owners who see only concerned about how much money the company makes.

Teamwork

There is none - read above.

Internal Communication

Lacks. No one speaks English, because anyone that can has found a real company to work for.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay is not good. Even after 10 years. Mostly temps who are just out of jail, prison, rehab, etc. anyone who who does not have a criminal past, can find a real job at a real company. But hey, bad people need jobs too - I guess.

Environmental Friendliness

Iroquois does NOT recycle because it costs too much money. Not eco-conscious.

Work-Life Balance

Typical work day is 11 hours. Management would rather you not have a work-life balance. All work and no time for family. This company really falls hard in this area.

Workplace Safety

This is not a safe place to work at. Ambulances come here frequently, nothing gets fixed until AFTER someone gets hurt. Air quality is horrible. Air is tested before the shift starts...of course it will show ok. OSHA should be made aware of this.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Replace your mid-management and plant managers, it's not a good crew that can't be trusted. Favoritism is out of control. Iroquois would be out of business if people spoke English and weren't afraid to speak up and stand up for themselves. But that's why your entire workforce are non-e

What I like about the company

Free parking is good. Nothing else besides that.

What I dislike about the company

Low pay, no benefits, impossible to get hired in (even though not sure why someone would want to get hired in), too many cliques, management will not listen to their employees who are making the money. Managers are allowed to treat employees poorly. Overall distrust of the company and management team. Depressing place to spend your day. Keep looking unless you have no other choice- still keep looking for anything else.

Workplace Safety

Safety is not a high priority here. Making production anyway possible - is a priority. Smoke and other metal dust in the air is a huge problem. Operations causing issues are turned off when any sign of OSHA or insurance companies are visiting.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Your employees do not trust you (management).Replace your plant managers and supervisors who play favorites. There are many temp employees who have been there for 10 years or more who are STILL not hired in, most are black and are talking about hiring a lawyer to file a lawsuit. The UAW would have a field day.
  • Improve working conditions, place is dirty and dumpy. Not a pleasant place to spend your day.
  • Update the equipment. Employees struggle to make production due to lack of maintenance done to machinery and tooling. Not fair to them.
  • Pay people a "living wage". Iroquois' pay scale is below the poverty line.
  • Hire people and give them the same health benefits you enjoy. People's families and children's lives and health are at stake. Just because it's not YOUR family, doesn't mean they are any less important.
  • Look at yourself in the mirror and determine if you really feel good about how your company operates and treats people.

What I like about the company

Long hours almost made up for the low pay scale.

What I dislike about the company

I quit a decent job to work here. I was made promises. I held up my end of the bargain but the company did not hold up there end of it. Many people working there, have no other choice due to not speaking English, criminal records, etc. Iroquois believes if you don't speak the language, it makes it hard to complain, join a union, etc.
