- Southern Resin, Inc.12.Nov 2015
Southern Resin is a small company in Thomasville NC that produces glues and resins that are shipped out in drums, totes, and tanker loads. This company is good as far as allowing the employee the freedom to do their work without looking over an employees shoulders constantly. The company has great supervisors who are knowledgeable but the upper management of the parent company is severely lacking in several areas. It should also be kept in mind that there are few if any benefits including a profit sharing plan that when you leave the company ,you are unable to collect it until after one year after leaving by either being dismissed or quitting-resigning for another job with notice. This along with other nuisances was a big factor in eventually leaving this company for another chemical operation. I found that after the initial discussed salary was met it was a long time before you would receive a raise in compensation and when it was it was like 25 cents .I am also still waiting on my profit sharing as I left in August and will not get it until July or August of next year!
Suggestions for improvement
- Please fix the above problems and also including several old and broken down equipment problems. In other words they will not spend any money on newer equipment and use a lot of old and outdated broken equipment.
What I like about the company
I liked the freedom to be allowed to perform my tasks with minimal supervision as far as the fact that once I demonstrated that I could handle my responsibilities on my own, my supervisor let me take care of the daily work loads.
What I dislike about the company
As previously mentioned I dislike the lack of benefits, lack of pay increases as frequency and a decent raise amount were almost nonexistent. I also greatly disliked the fact that when I left I had to wait over a year before I could receive my profit sharing that I had built up over several years. Other employees and I discussed this and were unhappy with the fact that you are unable to receive those funds sooner like other funds such as 401k plans at other companies or stocks: most companies you are able to receive this within 6 to 8 weeks after leaving the company at the very worst case scenario...not 1 year my goodness!
