You have a family? That's nice, here's a nickle an hour
Process Operator (Current Employee) – Annawan, IL – 31 January 2017
Work pace is decently fast. You hardly have time to think about how to resolve an issue before management throws you in the blender with the problem. 12 hour shifts and swinging isn't the worst part, it's the fact that besides a manager or 2, they don't care about your life away from work. In their eyes, we live to work, not work to live. As with the other jobs I've had, people normally get pay raises when they learn a new job or department, not here. If you perform well at you job and have knowledge of the process, don't be getting excited about your raise, it's just a let down. The hourly people are great, fun people to work with. Many of us are actively seeking better employment. Management is in denial about the turnover rate and enjoy running the smallest crews you can to save money. While economical for the business, it causes more people to leave than stay. So yes, it saves money in the short term, but training 5-6 people a year for 8 weeks, cost money long term.
The production supervisor is very unpleasant to work with and very rarely cuts you any slack. General manager is great to work for, as he treats you like a person, not a number.
Overall, I would not recommend applying here.
Benefits, overtime, and hourly workers
No decent breaks, Managements attitude, and swing shift
