Micro managed click environment with self preservation
Electrical Supervisor II (Former Employee) – Newberry, MI – March 18, 2016
pretty much inline with what the guy in Alabama said is true of the Newberry facility. small town politics, coupled with a extended family click in upper management positions makes it hard to be an outsider, no matter how good you are at what you do, if you're looking for a place where nothing is ever good enough and working your self to death is considered part of the job by the plant manager then this is right up your alley if not and you like to be appreciated for how hard you work then heed my advice. All the
department managers are brainwashed with the same ideals there's no training, I had to learn everything on my own wasn't compensated 4 using my license for the company and had a boss that knew nothing about the trade that I'm in, yet him and the plant manager (who can't even rotate his own tires) conducted annual evaluations which you evaluate yourself and if you're honest Lookout to sum it all up run as fast as you can in the other direction don't say I didn't warn you!
Free pop for salaried people, some good people (not many)
there is no cost of living raise each year, the hourly get 3%, even if they are a bad employee, if you're in the maintenance department according to the plant manager you have to quote, catch babies from a burning building in order to get a decent raise
