The approach of Almita is that you should be completely committed to your job and be available to work extra hours, even when you are not compensated for additional hours. This leads to a poor work/life balance.
Benefits were good, salaries were okay but maybe a little below average. Lack of opportunity for advancement and little job security.
Often felt like just a number with the management. However, there are lots of great people who work for the company which often made it a positive place to work. However, being a small town, management tends to protect their own families and friends so there is a feeling that the company has favorites who are immune to staffing changes or the rules that other employees must follow. Some employees (and departments) were allowed to act like brutes or bullies toward others as a result of being among the company's "favorites."
The company's management has a vision, but it often seemed too reactive instead of proactive.
In summary, this was not the worst job I have ever had, but wasn't the best either.
