Great people to work with, not so great to work for. The management has been there so long that they "know" how long every job should take, and will give you a real hard time if it takes any longer. It's difficult to get holidays, even if you ask for them many months in advance. Some of the machines are a little newer and not too bad to work with, while others have been there for a lifetime and seen a lot of neglect. Morale is very low due to how all the workers are treated, suspensions are handed out like candy. They don't have enough employees because people often quit, and not many people want to do overtime because they aren't happy. They have taken away entire positions just to save cost, ie)there were some knifechangers who had that title for many years, who were then demoted to clean-up and the job of changing knives was delegated to sawfilers and maintenance, who are already under staffed and over worked.
High stress, poor management
