    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, hourly employees are a good group of people

    Cons

    Management rotates through the office with great regularity as this is a stepping stone to bigger and better things for them. That being said, the rules all change everytime someone new comes in and wants to run things their way compared to the ways that have been effective. Lots of unneeded paperwork that are created because someone needed to do something to prove their job was needed. There is a noticeable gap between hourly and management, the only reason many of management know you is because your name is on your shirt or you have a very big mouth. High turnover rate. Only plant that is not union so we have our own rules and benefits compared to everyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Finally find people who will stay around and actually do something to improve the plant, not just their career.
