    I have been working at The Clorox Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A job it’s a job

    Cons

    To much favoritism. Rules don’t apply to certain individuals. A lot of promotions to non qualified personnel. If you are well liked the sky is the limit. Been with the company 24 years and haven’t had a raise in 17 years. A individual was hire 5 years ago and now is off the production floor and making more. A lot of shady things going on in the Aberdeen Plant. Paying associates Level 4 wages that are not qualified... or gone through the process yet! Pretty much being appointed. An individual was promoted to level 6 and was caught falsifying they’re time card. Stealing from the company and getting promoted!!!

    Advice to Management

    Wise up and stop the favoritism!!
