Just announced: 26% increase in EBITDA over same period last year, 12.5% increase in shareholder dividend
Was told “its been a rough year, only those with exceeds expectations got a raise” (I understand around 1%)
50+ hr work week, understaffed so you have to do more “other duties as required”
Company does not recognize bank time
Unused vacation - more ... is not paid out but lost
What do you have to do to get exceeds expectations anyways? Live at the mill? - less
ProsYou enjoy home life more
