Management is a joke and hours are brutal

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I was told upon hire Saturday's were going to be few and far in between . This resulted in a lie. I also applied to be one position and spend more time helping out in other departments then my own. This wouldn't be a problem but then you feel the pressure of things not getting done in your main department and management doesnt care at all. My only positive thing to say is the pay is really good and the workers are kind hearted and helpful which made so my experience wasnt total garbage.

Pros

Benifits, union

Cons

Long hours, management

Giving your all is not enough.

The job I had in there is not bad at all, the managers patrol like a pack of dogs looking you from head to toe looking for any reason to make your day harder. They’ll tell you in your interview that you’ll mainly just do 8 hours a day and some saturdays, I’ve heard that they said “you’ll rarely do 10’s, and rarely ever 12’s” then they’ll proceed to work you 12 every single day and tell you it’s mandatory Saturday too. They have their numbers and I get that but you can only work 100 or so people like that for a little till enough is enough. I look at the older people in there the ones who have been there for 20+ years & they’re still working the brakes off them. There’s so much more but I don’t have the time to go into it.

Pros

The friends I’ve made.

Cons

The hours.

The job is tough and the culture is tougher.

From the first day I arrived at the Lacey temper Sealy plant my coworkers greeted me by saying welcome to the afterlife. It was a customary greeting and I soon came to understand exactly why. this job doesn't have standard hours. You come in at a set time when you leave when the work is done. Any number of factors can contribute to you eventually working at 12 plus hour day. It even got to the point where multiple times we threatened to walk out. Which ended in management promising us that we wouldn't have to work 12 plus hour days anymore. But it didn't take them long to forget that promise. Management changes so often that it's hard to create a positive work environment that feels inclusive and like you have a voice or any control over how you move up in this company. In addition many employees use to deal with the many pains they suffer from. Which then causes them to not report when they get hurt on the job for fear of being fired. However the demand for the pace and work speed exceeds the stated safety first policies. PPE is often not available outside of ear protection. And while the company does provide eye and shoe vouchers. There are many hazards beyond that in the workplace. I worked for this company for 4 years. I ended up being terminated after I suggested and started organizing other coworkers to form a union so that we could be heard. The culture of the workplace often has coworkers taking out their anger at management and the situations they're placed in on each other. Which can lead to a very toxic workplace since employees don't feel empowered to speak to - 

Pros

Guaranteed overtime, Decent pay, Healthcare options

Cons

Management doesn't listen, An hours inconsistent, pressure to finish work regardless of outside issues

Horrible

You only get what you want when you sleep with the management. The supervisor on night shift is a pervert and so is the production manager. If you’re a girl then you’ll have a better experience here, I’m sure!

Pros

None

Cons

Too much overtime. 6 ten hour days a week

Long hours

The pay and benefits are great but the down side is the hours. There is a set start time but no end time and no more than 12 hours a shift. You work weekends more than they say.

Buena trabajo con el jefe directo

Buen jefe, responsable con ganas de enseñar. Aprendí a trato directo con transporte, inventario, trabajo bajo presión, dirección atentóa lo que pasa en las áreas. Lo más complicado es la atención de cliente, lo que más me gustó es que mi jefe directo siempre enseña de forma correcta y fácil para el entendimiento y aprender de manera sencilla

Productive

Very busy days. The hardest thing about this job is day to day you don't know what you will be working on. Priority of projects change day to day. The job is extremely demanding.

Hard to have a personal life

Working here was difficult because you never know what time you will be getting out daily. Management became a big issue the past year. Its also difficult in the summer months it becomes very hot inside.

Avoid this company

Don't care about work life balance,constantly swamped with calls won't hire more people,blame it on employees being out sick or using vacation time, force overtime on you including making you come in early and shorten your lunch time, will write you up for actually using your sick time, training is all over the place and they say they give you time to learn, but once you're on the phone they immediately start using what you don't know against you. Managers will disappear if you ask them a question that they don't know the answer to or will refer you to your peers for them to answer the question but then get upset when you ask your peer for help too much, they said they have townhall meetings quarterly but it's actually almost every month or every other month so if you work remotely they expect you to drive in instead of using business Skype and always schedule the meetings around the time that kids get home from school so if you have children they really don't care. The meetings are mostly them bashing stores that no longer carry their brand or the competitors nothing actually informative. They mirco manage your every move and it you can literally hear the same thing from 3 or 4 different managers within a few minutes of each other because they clearly don't communicate. They even go as far as to call your personal cell phone if you work remotely instead of reaching out to your direct manager first to see if they know what's going on with you. I would avoid this job at all cost! They tell you an hourly wage but once you get paid it doesn't add up at all and you get the run around - 

Pros

None

Cons

Micro manage, lie about wages, poor training, poor managers

People make the culture!

I had the privilage to work with many hard working individuals who diligently work day in and day out giving thier best 100% of the time. Work / Homelife balance can be a challange.

Pros

Free lunches, company promotional items, good healthcare.

Cons

Communication between plants & corporate continually updating.
