Workplace Safety

The company does well enough for safety but some of the policies are so controlling you have to wonder if it is all really necessary.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management is far to political. A company needs leaders. Especially in today's world where everything is ever increasingly political and respect the lowest people. They may not have the best experience or educations but they are the foundation of the company.

What I like about the company

Starting pay is decent. If overtime is desired there is no shortage of it.

What I dislike about the company

The company runs off of class warfare. There is a clear and distinct difference in treatment based on if you are an hourly employee or salary. The long hours are also very detrimental to one who wants to start a family and in my case even effects my sleep due to the early mornings.
Trying to move up is another problem all of its own. If you do not have political ties in the company it doesn't matter how much education or experience you have you will loose every time. I tried myself 18 different times in 4 years while having a college degree and several certs from a tech center.
