middle management
production supervisor (Former Employee), manchester, tnSeptember 9, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: always changing, not for the better
as with everywhere, xxx rolls down hill, was supervisor there for 8 years after 8 years in production. If they decide to get rid of you, they will, no matter what the reason, got "highly commendable" one year and the next was let go.

there were old time employees there, that had close relations with upper management and got away with everything. just – more... the same as everywhere else.

middle management cannot treat employees with respect, upper management wants you to swing a whip. so, if the employees like you, you are in trouble. – less

Productive ,but not very friendly, lot of backstabbing .
Master Craftsman (Former Employee), Batesville, MSAugust 27, 2014
Pros: you get to build the greatest casket in the world.
Cons: no one gives a snap how well you do your job.
As for haveing a job ,i wish i had stayed. But with all the stress from management from supervisors and up very bad . you get thrown around in the place like a ragdoll . No matter how long you've been there . It seems to me the longer i was there the less they cared for you being there ,they showed me they did not care for experience and only wanted – more... employees through temp services . Cheaper labour.
Almighty dollar ,bottom line . – less

No chain of command, other than that typical manufacturing environment.........Wood as a raw material varies. Lots of money to be made. Hourly employees don't get a lick of it.
