Otherwise solid manufacturer with dysfunctional management

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The actual job is not especially difficult, what's difficult is the constantly expanding list of tasks to be completed in an ever shrinking volume of time. Pay scale is adequate, but could be higher - the real reason Orion sees such high burnout and employee turnaround has more to do with being chronically understaffed. When a problem arises, management's first question is "who is to blame?" Often the problem analysis ends there. Training is haphazard and word of mouth; new hires are expected to learn 100% of the skills and processes needed while meeting frequently expanding production targets, and this system of tribal knowledge coupled with high turnover means a lot of institutional knowledge has simply been lost. Some of this knowledge is retained by the management team, but spending most of their time in the locked and air-conditioned office does not make them accessible and furthermore, company culture discourages employees from asking for help - if you ask for assistance, management takes this as a sign that you aren't able to do your job. At Orion, the reward for hard work is more hard work. One quickly learns to keep one's head down and avoid drawing attention, lest a manager decide to vent their frustrations in your direction.

worst place ever

worst supervision ever. never want to resolve and conflict . always in there office playing on the internet. never around for help. management is always complaining about something. also they always try and get work out of you for free.like shift change you have to stay late until other shift is done there meeting without pay, they use that 44hr rule to get you to come in on weekends for straight pay. minimum standards is how they run there business. before you work here read your rights and minimum labor laws.

Pros

none

Cons

dishonest unethical management

I was with Orion Plastics for a little over 2 years, left to work in the oil field after a few months I lost my job! I wish I had stayed and learned how to operate the lines better $$. I was asked multiple times if I wanna to learn how to operate the lines.... Lots of overtime, summer BBQ, safety boots, etc. Overall great company to work for!

Pros

Culture, Summer BBQ and some extras

Cons

Sometimes we had to work 12 hours
