    Pros

    Close to home job and a great group of production folks to work with. We all care for each other like family.

    Cons

    Most all of the small “perks” we use to receive have been done away with since the Corporate big wigs have moved to Ball Ground. They come around occasionally yet don’t speak to the “little people”. It’s pathetic and people are quitting.

    Advice to Management

    We need all new management.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Floor workers are good people. I quit a couplr months ago and found a slightly lower paying job but I'm a lot better off.

    Cons

    If you get a night shift position don't expect to go to day shift. Upper management is a revolving door. More worried about happy customers than happy workers. They have a board that says "work-life balance" but I only see my wife and kids on the weekend. Night shift works 5-6 days a week 10 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Employee happiness should be taken into consideration. Managers get to see their families every day. Not all of us have that luxury.

    Pros

    Chart is very involved in the community and helping plant workers during the holidays, to make sure they have a Christmas meal.

    Cons

    Poor communication, poor management. They tend to hire applicants from other companies instead of promoting within, so there’s no stability

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be able to perform the tasks done by the people who report to them.

    Hire more people and keep them so current employees do not feel overworked.

    Cons

    Senior management is out of touch with the work force

    Advice to Management

    Many people in senior management positions are new to the company. They need to take the time to actually meet their employees. When Sam Thomas was in charge everyone knew who he was. He would often visit the plant and you could find him talking with production workers. We had plant meetings with CEO and other top managers. My guess is that 70% of employees don't know the name of the current CEO and closer to 80% don't know what he looks like. Same for the rest of the senior management team.
