    Pros

    Interesting work, lots of responsibility but a lot of turnover which has resulted in upheaval and lack of direction.

    Cons

    Poor managers. They do not lead, they do not provide leadership and guidance to the buyers. Need better training for new hires. No formal plan.

    Advice to Management

    Think long and hard about your next managers. Recommend you promote from within. Bring up some new managers who know what a buyer's role truly entails.

    Pros

    They have great pay, its nearly impossible to get fired as long as you follow attendance policies, and its very laid back on certain shifts.

    Cons

    They have absolutely horrid communication, the company they contracted for plating at my location tended to scratch the parts, and then blame us. Management is very disconnected from the floor. also, Their overtime policy is a joke, they believe they own your time first, and everything else in your life is second, refuse to build up stock during the slow season so we don't have to come in for as much overtime during the busy season, and rarely keep all shifts fully staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep all shifts staffed and actually listen to your employees, and knock off the no inventory policy, your customers demands make it hard on to keep a proper work/life balance otherwise.
