Suggestions for improvement

  • I would suggest better ventilation. It is so hard to breath and we have no air purifiers and all the filters on the machines and torn and no good and they wont buy new ones. Also I would improve training. Not just do computer training on things we will never need to use but training on things that we actually will use

What I like about the company

I dont think the company is going anywhere. I at least have some what job security.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the lack of communication. They bosses dont communication and it makes it hard for everyone on the team. It would be nice if they got better at that and if we had more training. I have been there over a year and still have no clue how to use the tools on my desk. No ody trains you or tells you how to do things. They just expect you to jump in and learn. That I disapprove of.
