Good pay, good company

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great company, it's definitely real work but you're rewarded for the hard work. You become a member of the team and you'll be and feel needed. Always more training offered.

Used the Pandemic as an excuse to reduce salaries

The company used the pandemic as a way to layoff older / higher paid employees and replaced them with people right out of college. I received excellent reviews. But was laid off just a few years before retirement and replaced with 2 younger / less experienced employees. The pandemic provided cover.

Pros

They talk about how they value employees

Cons

Actions don’t match the words

The management cares about there employers

I really loved working there. The workplace morale was great. Everyone was willing to help each other and the management staff cared about the staff and was willing to hear everyone situations. Each position also has great pay.

Not much to do

Pretty is easy job to do they will hire anyone but alot people don't last long. They will last a week or so then go ghost. There is alot of down time so get ready to sweep the same dirt around. Alot of favoritism here I notice and gossip if there's no work you can't just stand around the team leaders will say something to you.The pay is the same for everyone they don't tell you that in orientation you will find that out on the floor and good luck with a raise there.

Management

A great paying company if you are about the money. Management though considering your race or gender will never grow you inside of the company. Best thing is a cost of living raise every year that’s the only thing that keeps you of float.

Okay

The job is okay. The pay is decent. They provide raises and decent food. They hire the same day and training is paid. There was a signing bonus at the time.

Great place to work with good hard working people.

Well, good place to work and make some good money, but like anywhere it's always what you make it. The people there help each other and safety is number 1. Team work make the dream work!!

Excellent for a production worker.

Great place to work if you are good with staying in a job. If you want to move up, you had better be part of the good ole boy system. There are opportunities, but you will only get so far if you aren’t their guy or gal

Pros

Good pay and benefits

Cons

Union plant

Long hours, low pay, dead end job

- It was a really messy job. Some type of liquid sprays the inside of the water heat, and it gets all over your clothes.- Very long hours. I would be so exhausted- Can't use your phone at all in the building- Lunch breaks are only 30 minutes. They should be longer due to the fact of us having to walk to get our food, warm food up, etc.

Pros

None

Cons

Low pay, long hours, heavy equipment, far drive

Good pay for bad work, working alongside even worse team leads.

Didn't like the management. The work is okay if you're 20 and constantly drink Monster. The management will do everything possible to keep the easiest jobs for themselves, and you are expected to keep up no matter what.

Solid job if it's what you're looking for

The job includes a lot of benefits, high pay, with lots of opportunities to move around. The work can be intense, but you'll never drown in the workload. The biggest issue is that shifts are long, with mandatory overtime every other week. If you're okay with this, the job is fantastic, but if you desire a life outside of work, this job takes up a very large chunk of your time.

Good pay, low skill work.

Like many factory jobs the work is either mind numbing boredom or fast paced effort. No happy medium. Management and leadership lacking. You are mostly left alone with little training and just struggle till you figure it out.

Pros

Good pay, good benefits, good work/life balance

Cons

Short breaks, long walk into plant

Fast paste place to work

I would give it a 0 if I could it’s fast paste one .30 min break. 2 breaks about 5-10 min each really depends slow every once in a blue moon but it depends

Pros

Weekly pay

Cons

1. 30 min break 5-15 min break

Horrible place and company to work for would not recommend

Terrible work environment. Would not recommend this job to anyone. Hr, supervisors, and higher up management only care about themselves and do nothing for or to help employees. This job is just horrible and this company is not a great company to be apart of.

Pros

None

Cons

Work environment sucks, management is terrible, and no room or opportunities to move up

People worried about job security and disingenuous management

Employee turnover was crazy. The team supervisors and leads will try and make it work for you. The department heads and management are trying to automate as much as possible, but the equipment is frequently mal-functioning. The busy workplace culture is slightly paranoid due to constant change in expectations, protocol and mixed messaging. Tiny breakroom. Plumbing issues.

Pros

Decent team-leaders. Xmas parties with raffles, lots of drinking and unseemly behavior.

Cons

HR department works closely with management to legally terminate those with disabilities

Good job overall

Good job overall, easy work, good pay. Just work a lot of overtime if production is down. When it’s hot, it’s hot. And when it’s cold it’s cold. Not a bad job if you don’t mind working overtime

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Lots of Saturday overtime
