Company Culture

Management keeps the workforce untrained. Lack of knowledge keeps the workforce obedient. Then they write you up when you make mistakes until they get rid of you.

Support from management

Management is very supportive of themselves. They treat the workers as pawns. You are best not to make eye contact with management once you hit the floor.

Career Development

Most people in production that have been hired in this plant in the last ten years have quit within the first year or been terminated. If you are hired in this plant, chances are, you will remain in a lower tier job forever.

Overall compensation for your work

As a tier 1 employee my wages barely get me by in life but, I manage. However, I am the last of this breed of worker. Tier 2 and manpower wages are barely minimum wage. The rotating work shifts keep you away from family .

Work-Life Balance

Shift rotational work with lots of overtime due to lack of production workers on the floor. You work 21 out of 24 days aroud the clock to get 4 days off. Days, Swings, and Graveyards. If, you are not switched on crews. If you call off more than 4 times in a year. They write you up.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better training from the top on down. This is not a people friendly environment. Different faces in certain places. Workers spend a third to half of their life there in squalor and discomfort. Management thinks this is ok.

What I like about the company

What very little I know about the Vitro Corporation, seems to me, thay want to change the environment. However, the management holdovers from PPG seem to have taken advantage of the cultural differences of the Management from Mexico. Who, talks a good plan for a decent future. However, I believe he still relies on holdovers from the previous bad management.

What I dislike about the company

Every employee comes from different backgrounds and holds on to their beliefs and, makes up stories about other employees with, unfounded labels and stereotypes. Lower level management joins in on the reindeer games and, however wrong it may be to some, it is fun to them. Harrassment and discrimination run rampant in this environment and, is encouraged and covered up by shift managers in this plant. If employees are absent or on vacation or sick, other employees work double shifts to cover.

Office / Work Environment

People are always getting hurt (physically). The training is mediocre. They really do not care until we get a 'recordable' against the plant.

Environmental Friendliness

The wastewater dept. Keeps their stuff in order.

Work-Life Balance

There isn't any.... they are always changing their minds on when production is working, because mgmt. does not have to be here on the weekends. Otherwise, if they did. Things would be ran a lot smoother.... they really do not care.
