Struggling Company looking for a niche

Working with older Equipment and lots of creativity.
Only quick fixes or workarounds created instead of a longterm plan, Company needs very long time to make decisions or put a Project forward.

I really enjoyed working for this company that offers good opportunities for job mobility/advancement for motivated individuals. Great work atmosphere and team dynamic. I would NOT be looking for new employment if the company was downsizing at the pulp & paper mill in my hometown.

Safety and production conscious.
Retired in 2008 as a Fiberline Team Leader (Former Employee), Catawba, SCFebruary 20, 2014
Pros: good wages, occasional free meals from vendors
Cons: everything is out in the open, so the elements are sometimes rough.
365 days a year operation. 12 hour shifts. This is a continuous process that requires that your shift pick up where the prior shift left off and safely run the process. Must handle any upsets that arise. The teams on each shift ran the show, but with supervision input. There are 5 distinct operations in the Fiberline and all co-workers learned to run – more... each job. This was done through a rotating schedule The hardest part of the job was when a machine failed. There are a lot of valves to open or close and a thorough check-off list to insure that the maintenance can be done safely. The most enjoyable part of the job is working alongside co-workers who know what jobs need to be done and get out there and do those jobs. – less

Management has much to be desired
Undisclosed (Current Employee), Fairmont, WVApril 19, 2013
Pros: hourly employees and some managers are very good to work with
Cons: the hr manager is tyrant
Hourly workforce is great to work with, but HR does not provide support for the hourly employees. The HR manager does not communicate well with us, and seems caught up in his own agenda. It seems to me that HR should be working more with us hourly employees and also provide better management employee relations. But it turns out that the HR manager wants – more... to be involved more in other functions than his own. Total disappointment! – less
