Suggestions for improvement

  • Increase hiring/employee base, one person/one line (except where two people/one line would be indicated, possibly even three).. That alone would boost production and meet contract times more and more frequently, increasing company profit well above the increased payroll as well as attracting new and larger customers..

What I like about the company

co-workers were some of the best people I've ever worked with..

What I dislike about the company

on-floor management disconnect with the workers, increasing demand to have individual employees take on workloads that traditionally had been run by two, or even three people..

Suggestions for improvement

  • Do away with the current point system. Increase Training and pay accordingly. Allow for FMLA leave prior to a 1 year anniversary.

What I like about the company

My coworkers are amazing people who look out for each other. We care about how we do both at work and out of work.

What I dislike about the company

Training program is inconsistent at best. Not enough training. Point system for attendance is far to "Important", meaning if you don't get points you are guaranteed a job but you can be there and be the worst worker on the floor. Those that work hard and do the best work are often the ones that get points for things like missing a clock in punch or being 1 min late. Work ethic is not considered because of the point system. And the pay really should be at least 0.50 if not 1.00 more per hour.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would make sure that they did regular work, not speeding things up just to get more things done in a short amount of time. I would also make sure that they paid their workers a little bit better and took time to make sure that their customers were happier about all their product.

What I like about the company

The company believes in safety before anything else and tries to make sure their employees are happy. They work very hard to make the customers happy even if that means long hours with lots of workers.

What I dislike about the company

I feel that sometimes they think more about the money they are making and send the product out, that they forget to care about how the product is made or if they are getting good product.
