Support from management

Absolutely no support from management. They expect you to meet a set number but don't give you the tools to achieve it.

Teamwork

Only reason there is some teamwork is because the other employees they're great very helpful and educational but once again no help from management

Career Development

Only reason this gets two stars is because they gave me the opportunity to be the department lead but in reality it's just someone to blame

Work-Life Balance

When it's busy you get 50+ hours a week but when it's slow you can work only 30 hours a week biggest reason why I quit I couldn't support my family on that unpredictable income

Teamwork

the PLANT MGR. was brought up through the ranks. this speaks highly of old castle. a great mgr. cuz he HAS BEEN THERE

Overall compensation for your work

comparable pay with similar jobs within the industry.

What I like about the company

great plant mgr. allowed you to do your job without micro-managing it. trusted you because he knew you did not need to be baby-sat. co-workers were all on the same page, teamwork was not a problem . I attribute this to the personality and leadership abilities of the plant mgr.

What I dislike about the company

can't really think of anything. i know...hard to believe.
