Company Culture

The culture in the Covington VA area is lazy and unprofessional!

Support from management

Warehouse manager doesn't go to the warehouse. The manager only knows what she is told she has no hands on. Her favorite saying "delegate it".

Teamwork

There is no teamwork in the warehouse. Everyone is back stabbing and thinks someone is should be doing their job.

Freedom to work independently

There is some independence.

Internal Communication

Supervision doesn't communicate well with employees. Monthly safety talkes but in the actual department there is no communication.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Everyone is disgruntled

Career Development

No development. Other employees didn't like it if you were out of the office for training and would complain about it. That is if anyone was out!

Office / Work Environment

Everyone is disgruntled in the office as well.

Environmental Friendliness

not friendly at all!

Work-Life Balance

Hours were great!

Company Image

Previously part of MWV so the image is outstanding.

Job Security

wants to fire people for false performance reviews

Handicapped Accessibility

N/A

Workplace Safety

Very good

Challenging Work

Busy work

Suggestions for improvement

  • They need a new plant manager with new ideas. They need to go through and replace some managers with lazy culture.

What I like about the company

Pay

What I dislike about the company

They allow dysfunctional activities to go on day after day. They make you feel insecure there.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Realize that you will not keep employees with a desire to succeed from moving to higher paying jobs/benefits with your current pay scale/benefit package. If production employees are really the companies lifeblood, prove it.

What I like about the company

Can virtually be hired with no previous plant experience. Gain 1-2 years experience and move on.

What I dislike about the company

Pay scale is behind what other plants in the Calvert City area pay. Management/employee relations are meh. Self directed work environment as long as its convenient to management. There is a such thing as "Common sense".....just not in the engineering world lol.
