Productive work environment
- A typical day at work for me would be packing boxes with product while stacking the boxes onto pallets. - I learned about different chemicals and machines, as well as good work ethics. - The management seemed unfair at times, but overall they were friendly, lenient and honest people. - The hardest part of the job would be due to my back issues. standing in one place for 10 hours a day or stacking heavy boxes was sometimes too much. - The most enjoyable part of the job for me was packing/stacking boxes.

Good environment friendly products
The company upgraded the QC lab and department after I started there. They were very honest and did what they say and said what they did. Their products are great and I continue to use them after leaving.

Completely mismanaged and toxic.
A typical day at work consists of watching production supervisors and managers try to figure out what product they are going to run. There is no set production schedule and the management lacks communication skills. There is not much to learn since the machines are easily operated and mostly automated. Standing in one place and doing the same thing all day every day is tedious. Management is judgmental and verbally abusive with the most vulgar language anyone ever heard. They preach the offensive language sermon but then engage in open conversations that would make a drunken sailor blush. Very hypocritical. During breaks there are conversations in groups that promote ethnic adversity and sometimes downright offensive to anyone. The workplace culture is diverse but separative. Each different group bands together and an outsider is hard pressed to join a group. A great majority of the new hires never return after orientation. The hardest part of this job is finding the drive to show up the next day. There are no real incentives. Most days are 10 hour shifts and you get forced into overtime with no real notice until the end of the shift the day before due to management not knowing what product they need to run until 5 minutes after they are supposed to be running it. No real chance to plan your weekend. This is largely due to mismanagement and no production schedules. Work/life balance is unpredictable. The most enjoyable part of this job is having a job if you need to build your resume.

not a great place
not a fan of this company and their treatment of ordinary everyday folks just trying to earn a living, hours brutal, work mind numbing atmospheric conditions are appalling, equipment is always malfunctioning ie not working as intended, overtime is forced upon workers so that they can meet their demands

It's pretty great
The job is pretty boring itself most times but what makes it such a wonderful place I find is how most of everyone gets along. It's a good entry area I find for people looking for their first job just bear in mind it's challenging. Reasons why there's high turn over. I don't mind a challenge myself and that's part of what made it fun besides the soreness xD
