Good job, friendly coworkers, management working on trying to make it a more positive atmosphere. Didn't always have the best communication but constantly working at it.

The pay and overtime was the best part of the job but besides that everything else was terrible. I was hired on for a part-time position but was given full-time hours and more, most weeks would be 50 hour weeks. You are never given an actual break, your break is based off of the people you would work with. If you were working on a barge then it would be based off of the people loading the barges. Train, it would be based off of the people loading the train carts. However this job was extremely easy and it did pay pretty well.
Pros
good pay
Cons
almost everything else

Learned a lot about leadership and working with a team of people. Working together with other people and bouncing ideas off one another was great and eye-opening.

Excellent pay! After that not much else. Upper management is ok but is very disconnected. Front line Supervisors not so much. They apply rules and standards depending on if the employee is a friend or not. The hours are long and fluctuating, but the work isnt to hard. They also emphasize safety standards to a point. The culture is very political, and petty when it comes to the hourly employees.

plant manager has favorites , treats some different, complaints to time manager - human resource but even he quit because of this pressure and craziness here. this was report to corp but no follow up. top plant manager doesn't understand what we do - he talks like he know everything but proves he know nothing making himself look foolish to staff. some managers and staff do a good job keeping the place running but there only a few. others don't have to do their work because they get away with it and only come to get a paycheck but not do anything. over time requirements all the time because they don't hire people who know how to work here.
Pros
pay is decent, some managers care
Cons
benefits are very expensive, upper plant management has favorites and no clue what is going on

"Family first" apparently applies only to management, who spend the least amount of time away from home.
the ability of middle managers to absorb others' credit, and repel their own responsibility is reminds me of Congress.

the company will never realize the business they claim to be until it admits that the employees are their greatest asset.

managers apparently do not know the difference between the terms supervising and delegating, and routinely pawn work off on underlings, who are unequipped to execute.

lack of employee evaluations (including supervisors) has created a "no consequence" culture, where inadequacy is encouraged; and bad-mouthing coworkers is the norm.
Pros
Paid vacations, paid lunches
Cons
Safety, process improvement, employee training=things that are half-heartedly preached, actively not practiced.
