Company culture is not good.Most employees are not happy and management does not take ideas from the production floor to help make the job more productive and efficient.
Support from management
Management does not support the employees.Management does not promote from within and pay level is not fair.Inexperienced people are hired in at a higher wage than the majority of experienced people who are already working there.Management shows favoritism.
Very little team work.Most employees fear for their job so they concentrate only on what they are doing instead of helping others.Management does not recognize teamwork.
Communication is a miss.If it is not want management wants to hear then it is ignored.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The older colleagues are considered old culture.
There is no career here.It is strictly a job.If you don't have a college degree you will not advance in this company.
The hours are not family friendly.It is 12hr shifts and you work every other Friday,Saturday and Sunday.If an employee takes vacation it is a mandate that you cover that person no matter if it is your day off.You will have to work labor day and memorial day weekends.It is required that you work 12hr shifts but only get paid for 8hrs holiday pay.
No.The company needs to have better incentive bonuses and better communication between management and employees.Not all people are treated the same way.There is a lot of favoritism on management part.
No i do not feel my job is stable.The company is constantly changing positions and employees.It has become a revolving door.Turnover ratio is very high.
The company is handicap accessible but have never seen anyone handicapped hired in.
The overall work is a skilled labor but the training needs a lot of work.Not allowed to train properly so the new employee is comfortable once he/she is released on their own.
Suggestions for improvement
- Listen and understand what your production employees are offering as advice and suggestions.Give them a reason to work hard for the company everyday.Better insurance and incentive programs.
What I dislike about the company
Management,Hours,Lack of fairness and promotions,Poor incentive programs and lack of knowledge from supervisors.
