Company culture

Overall, its a good company to work for.

Support from Management

Management was always willing to listen to the employees, and implement any ideas that they were able to.

Teamwork

This plants success is based on teamwork from all departments.

Career Development

Management likes to promote from within the company.

Office/Work Environment

It is a very tough place to work for. It can be very physical, and dirty. With that said, improvements were being made. Automated equipment was installed to assist the operators. The plant did not have heat for years, but has been installed. It does very little, but more improvements were being made.

Work-Life Balance

The biggest complaint from employees was the amount of hours they have to work, but the equipment should cut down on that.

Job security

New automated equipment has been added (robots). The robots are meant to assist the operators, make their work I bit easier, not replace the operators.

Workplace Safety

Safety, safety, safety. Here, safety is the #1 priority.

Inclusive/Diverse

All ideas, and opinions are taken into consideration. Employees are encouraged to come up with ideas on how to create a better working environment.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Continue doing what you have been. The recent improvements will show the operators how much you do actually care.

What I like about the company

The encouragement that is given, promotion from within the company.

What I dislike about the company

Each plant is limited as to what they can do for it's employees. This particular plant did what they could, but was still very limited.
