Great place to make money when the economy was good.

Utilityman (Former Employee) Waukegan, IL (US)

ProsBeing in a union, we had great wages, plenty of overtime, business was good.

ConsWhen business stopped, lay-offs were by seniority and the hard workers were the first ones to go. Upper management had no clue how we ran the plant.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should dig deeper on how our plant worked instead of assuming.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
