Pros: good benefits, relatively clean work space
Cons: disrespecting and devaluing employees is the norm
Having over 20 year experience in storefront manufacturing, I must say this company shows no personal regard for hourly employees. Over the last 7 years, I have earned 32 cents per hour in raises.
I can never plan anything near the end of the month as management never commits to doing monthly inventories during regular business hours. In fact it could start as late as 5pm Friday night, or be made mandatory on Saturday without any previous warning.
Corporate policies regard racial, sexual, religious and bullying comments, as totally unacceptable, but in this warehouse no such rules are enforced. Managers bully and belittle hourly, and salaried employees with harsh pointed jokes, and public ridicule.
Managers threaten to fire employees 'on the spot' for not wearing all the protective equipment required, but do not feel compelled to abide by the rules themselves.
Hours worked vary daily without any warning. Morning start times can change weekly, or daily with little or no warning. Taking a sick day, or time off for personal reasons is not allowed without a physical note from a Doctor every time. Two weeks notice is required for all non-emergence appointments, procedures and other activities. The time clock is monitored by corporate executives at CRH in Ireland, meaning be prompt always, and don't plan on any leeway if real problems come up, like a car issue, plumbing leak emergency at home, or kids need a ride to school. 3 strikes you're out, (haven't seen that happen yet though)
I won't say much else other than this. Any manufacturing company that can not adequately keep the minimum needed materials, and hardware in supply regularly, will fail absolutely. Customers are going elsewhere.
