Third Party Administrator (Former Employee), Boonton, NJ – December 19, 2013
Days started early and ended late. Totally loved my job and what I did daily, Enjoyed interaction with my many co-workers. Management was extremely secretive and was not forthcoming in visions and goals and tight with pay raises, Advancement was almost non-existent with minority groups pretty much locked out. attitude towards women could have been much – more... better than it was. Expected to be 110% accurate at all times. Achievements were rarely acknowledges and mistakes used to keep promotions and pay increases at a minimum. – less

Working along with 6 plant personnel testing batches was frequent and the entire day. I was so suffiecient so management was hardly necessary.

Process Operator (Current Employee), Neches, TX – December 14, 2012
Pros: young men can come get experience and move on to better plants in area
Cons: evrything: from the culture to woking conditions
This facility has been around since the second World War. What's interesting is that it probably has the same culture and work mentality of that time. Management is very hardore, heavy handed, work conditions and environment are bad, and because of such high employee turnover, people who are left are MADE to work every off day until they say otherwise. – more... what can i say; a labor camp disguised as a workplace. – less
