Conformance out ranks productivity and quality. Local inequity runs unchecked.
Industrial Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Everett, WA – 5 December 2018
Tremendious turn over. 150%+ turn over of production management, supervisors, crew leads in 2 years. Strong "anti-union" and retaliation to employee discussions re: inequity and random altered policies. Good place to be in sales... terrible place to be on production crew. Even worse if you are stuck on second or third shift. Payroll errors are common and very slow at resolve. Self- insured and claim to be above state regulation and human rights. Many English challenged production workers are stuck at low pay with minimal increase and their potential of promotion is non-existent... even demotion and pay cuts regardless to fact many of these are very productive, long term, and loyal employees. Jobs and special classifications are made for those that best conform as local upper management appoints best paying jobs with addition (special) benefits. Sales and office seemingly has unlimited budget (annual office remodel for "professional appearance") where as production and maintenance is on tight budget causing needed repairs to be frequently held off from mid month to after next month's budget is released... Still unrealistic pressure from sales and service for expedited product turn over (frequently leading to high turn over of hard working production, receiving, and repair staff).
Decent benefit package, frequent meals/treats provided (varing greatly by department and shift), distant corporate support, strong safety and ergonomic commitment
Inequity and favoritism displayed continually throughout all levels of management and supervisors
