      Company going through growing pains

      Pros

      Health benefits are good. They give out snacks once a month.

      Cons

      12 1/2 hour shifts. No holidays off. Management doesn't listen to the concerns of employees. As long as the product goes out the door, they don't care how. Material Handlers do more than just move material. In charge of all shipping and kitting, but pay is the same as average, with more responsibility. Other places, these would be three separate jobs. The department has been understaffed for over a year.

      Total Chaos at times

      Pros

      Stable company, good benefits. I love the people I work with.

      Cons

      Well my list is long. A few years ago, I would have said this was a great place to work. In the last few years our upper management has changed 3 times. Now I don't think the right hand knows what the left hand is doing. Our supervisors are very hands off and disconnected from the production floor. If you need any help from management, forget it. It will be faster to try and fix the problem yourself, or get help from another production worker. Management doesn't hold themselves accountable. But if an issue arises, production will get the blame. We are under staffed and only a few select positions will get filled. Also we do not train here, you will have to figure it all out for yourself. Just a few short years ago we were the flagship site for this company, but now we can't get out of our own way. We manage from crises to crises and wonder why we lose customers. So if you want to be treated like a child, who is running with scissors then this is the place for you.

      Thank you for your review. We appreciate you taking the time to point out areas where we could improve. We acknowledge that management has turned over and believe we now have an established professional who will help us improve Garden Grove. Innovation and Continuous improvement are key to our success as a business and as a site. As you mention, there can never be enough communication. This was apparent in the employee engagement survey responses and in the employee focus groups that were recently held on site. I am certain that since you took the time to voice your opinion you are someone we want helping us make Garden Grove a great place to work. I would encourage you to reach out to your local Human Resource Manager to further discuss your ideas and concerns.

      Pros

      Compensation and benefits are good, plenty of opportunties to move into different positions on the floor as well as other sites. Extremly safe work environment, as well as clean.

      Cons

      Sometimes bureacracy can slow things down but it is a very large organization which comes with the territory. Bumping up vacation allowance would be a plus.
