Not recommended. Lots of staff turnaround for many reasons. No one refers people they know to work here even with a cash incentive. Not a healthy place, physically or mentally. Safety is just a word and the safety committee is oppressed and intimidated by management. Pay is based on favouritism and raises are small, few and far between. Management is poor, biased and out touch with reality.


ttouch with reality. Avoid this place if at all possible.

I've worked at lots of places that always say safety comes first before production. I never believed them whenever they said that. Here though I do believe it. As long as safety issues are reported to the superviosr they take action to either lock out the machine or get it fixed. The hourly rate might not be amazing bbut they are fair with how they pay. You get paid for the 15 minutes that they want you to be there before your shift at time and a half. Everywhere else I worked expected you to be there 15 minutes before but didn't pay you anything for it. You also get paid more on the long week because some of your normal hours switch to time and a half.

This is a great company to work for. I love the culture of it; they genuinely care about the safety and well-being of their employees. Happy company equals happy management equals happy employees which equals happy and satisfied customers!

Horrible owner, inept senior management and terrible culture. The company does not appreciate its employees and treats them with contempt. If I could rate 0 stars, I would.

I was one of the Lucky 25 let go when Management decided to turn on SAP too soon.The CEO was too immature and inexperienced to take the blame for his own actions so he ruined the lives of 25 regular employees at Random. This is a surprisingly typical reaction for them. They have also spent the last decade stripping as much money and benefits as they can from the staff. The air of Egalitarian greatness that pervaded when I started there has been replaced with money grubbing at the expense of the employees to the benefit of the board members.

always thinking on the job here, there is an urgency to the work but management is relaxed in their approach. Great work culture and colleagues.

Its nice to come in to work and be able to use your brain and be recognized for it.

Self appointed supervisors.
They will act like they're doing you a favor by allowing you to work with them.

Time is everything unless your operator wants a smoke.

Training here is designed only for reducing employer liability.
Pros
Steady hours, benefits
Cons
Dead end job. Negative atmosphere

This place is toxic. Workers are great but not appreciated or paid enough. Management lacking in all areas. Would not recommend working here. Safety is proclaimed to be the number one priority, but management is quick to ignore genuine concerns when it benefits them.

Pays good for the area. Feels like decisions are emotional and ego based as opposed to logical. Not a terrible place but it's made perfectly clear where employees stand.

The people that work here are intelligent hard working individuals that care about quality and helping the customer to succeed.This company has a great pension plan. Where this company lacks is communication and implementing new ideas.This company concentrates on how fast you go rather than safety and quality first.
Pros
Pension Plan
Cons
Communication
