Loader Operator/Heat Treat (Former Employee) –  Catoosa, OK28 January 2017
I would work 12hr everyday. almost 7 days a week. I learned a lot about communication and the machines their. Cool people to work with. Hardest part of my job was staying alert. I had to watch pipe on a conveyor. Not hard but challenging to keep myself busy while the pipe rolled by. I loved how they had a weekly bonus.
Pros
Paid lunch, weekly bounses
Cons
Oil field crashed and I was laid off only 2 hrs for being full time and being in the union

Union has too much control.
Former Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Wilder, KY12 January 2017
Lack of decision making at plant level created by upper managements lack of confidence and knowledge of the plant.

Union does not recognize importance of working together to reach goals and continues to view everything as union vs. management. Upper management needs to stand up.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Union abuses FLMA and current contract. Upper management does not stand up to union.

Production job. You are given the tools you need to do your job well.

Safety comes first and it shows.

Very nice pay rate for this area, and entry level opportunities do not require much experience.

A company with no true direction and lack of communication.
Manager - Cost Accounting (Former Employee) –  Houston, TX20 April 2016

Cons
Lack of communication at all levels of management.
