Drumout Operator (Former Employee), Elwood, ILDecember 24, 2013
Pros: good insurance, steel toe boots 2 a year given, uniforms and coats, hardhats, good salary
Cons: no life just work, less than 8 hrs to turn around on shift change
Typical days were 12hr swing shift, High production and fast paced, huge believers of multi-tasking and 0 tolerance for mistakes, with constant mandatory over-time with strict attendance policy change enacted in 2009. I aquired a variety of amazing skills and was able to implement a trouble- shooting guide for all drumout operators to be able to fix – more... the drumming machine on the fly. I organized daily operations to meet high production goals and was able to restructure the warehouse with pedestrian walkways, to make my area a safer place to work. – less

the culture is not very aggressive in terms of promotions and career advancement, and micro management is more common that someone would like. Lots of frustrated people, including who has been with the – more... company many years, due to poor management and what is happening in may areas of the company today. – less

No room for growth and bad business decisions
Chemist (Former Employee), Northfield, ILJuly 11, 2013
Company run like the old boys club and the hiring process is comical and they don't seem to value experience at all. All they worry about is if you are a "YES" man and how cheap can they get you. Management is disconnected or are put into management roles only because they have a PhD. The only good part about this company is a few people who make it – more... worth coming into work, other than that it is very frustrating and takes two acts of god to excel in this company. – less
