I know its so pathic, it all goes back to who you know or who you blow. To get treated with some respect. As an employee myself I know how people are treated I see everyday and I am treated that way as well. It is truly one of the sorriest places I have ever worked for. I am thankful that I do have a job, no doubt about that. But why is that you have to be part of there group to be treated with respect. Something needs to change
Supervisors go set in their offices all day on the cell phones or on the coner of a cell and just chatt it up showing things on their phones and laughing having a good ol time, There is one particular female supervisor and all she does is tattle on everyone if you pull your phone out to check the time she is running to tell. Or if all the MALE superviors and trainers etc are talking about something like a issue or something in a cell she runs to get right in the middle of it. And whats funny is she dont even know the correct way the staples go, But she sure does jump in the middle of everything. Hey theres one every where you go!!! But it is sad the way hard working employee are treated we are the ones making their pay checks!!! Their profits keeping the company going....but what thanks do we get?! We no longer get our bonus or any other incentive to say hey thats a good job THANKS!!! BUt they have all this money to spend on redoing the whole building and painting putting in brand new bathrooms in the front office oh and by the way the bathrooms that they put in by the training center cost....85thousand!!! Its really sad and they re paint the offices the lounge in the front office is the biggest waste of money i mean really an elctronic trash can??? WOW thats amazing.
We need people back in LAZBOY that cares about the people that work there. Yes I know its a company and they are foucsed on the profits But dont forget about the ones that make those metal peices that is then sent to the rod area where they make the rods that makes the chairs relcine and thepolly department that makes the polly for the chairs and sofas and wood room that makes the frames etc and the cells that take all those pices to make the chairs and sofas WE are the ones that make this company....And what do we get.

Couldn't agree more. When they took you're names away and gave you numbers I knew it was a bad sign.

i hate working with slackers and unmotivated people. some people are content with having just enough money. some people like to work so they can stay a bit ahead financially. when you force old workers, who know the value of money and know you need to make money and save for a rainy day with young people who just care that they do enough to make enough money so that they have money for the weekend to party with its not fair to the hard workers. they come to work wasted sometimes and too tired to work 5 days a week. you might get one good day of good work out of an unmotivated worker and the other 4 days the team has to carry them. NOT RIGHT!

UNION. period. need more said? How bout 30 to 40% more on your wages. What about better benefits and safer better working conditions? What about the workers who do have a situation where unfair treatment is involved? Would you like to have an educated team of professionals represent you? Would you like to have your working conditions laid out on a table and have a contract on them? I bet you would. Folks at lazy boy would have to be idiots not to want this for themselves and their co workers. B.L.U.E = Better Living in a Union Environment

union wont help. its about a society of LAZY people. the UNION pertaining to work environment is just another word for LAZY. Lzb just like anywhere else has its share of lazy people. 3 out of 5 people in a work environment are lazy and unmotivated. you might have a man who is the sole support of a family of 4whose wife is a stay at home wife and mother. he goes to work every day with out complaint because he knows his family depends on him. he works hard. then you might have his coworker. a young single woman whos main concern is making enough money to shop for clothes and buy a cute car and hopes to find a man at her workplace to get into a relationship with. then you have a guy who likes to party and comes into work after a weekend of partying and drinking and tells stories of his weekend while his hardworking coworker father listens, rolls his eyes and carries this sorry piece of chit . then you have a divorced mother who has a deadbeat ex. she has to work hard to support her kids sometimes on only a few hours sleep. can UNION help these situations ????I DONT THINK SO!!!!!!!!!!

i am nobodys pet but i did work 12 hours straight overtime on a sat to paint them lines. how did i get on the detail? its simple.. i heard they were taking volunteers and i volunteered. I have worked in several states for many different types of companys. La z boy is not the best place I have ever worked but its by far NOT the worst. Everywhere I have been you have people who complain and who bring negative attitudes with them to work and that creates a unhappy workplace. la z boy is full of a bunch of cry babys. they need to fire them and hire some more mexicans. they dont complain.

Someone told me that you are not "Billy Woods". Just someone snatched an old jail intake photo, added your name and stayed within bounds so as to not attract question. You have attracted a question. How do we know you are Billy Woods, of Dayton, migrated to Battle Creek, then back to Rhea County only to find a sort of salvation in the county jail. Please explain, or not.

First off, you got the chronology wrong. I was born in Battle Creek, raised in chicago until the tender age of 13 then moved down here to rhea county with you wonderful people. The lord did comfort me while i was in jail and give me this overwhelming feeling everything was gonna work out.. and wouldnt you know.. everything worked out. I graduated in 1995 from Rhea high where i played football with the likes of chris henderson,josh harris, justin mccampbell and many more. from 95 to 00 i served in the army. I know have a great job at a great place. la z boy am shift,plant 6,cell6. but maybe thats all lies but then again who really cares?

I just posted a long comment under the name of "tax collector" or something like that. I often read this forum and I believe you are who you say you are. Don't defend yourself by divulging information. It is like "talking to police". You NEVER talk to police. Most people in jail today "talked" themselves there. If a cop has probable cause then arrest me. Just make F^%^%ing certain.
Keep on posting Billy and neglect fools.

I started working for Lazboy in 1977 I was 23 years old, stayed there til 2008 left at 54 years old.I gave them 31 years of my life( Neosho). around 2004 or so they started running these pod groups or cells, all that caused was arguements and fights. no two people work the same speed or otherwise. so wen they built the big plant in Mexico i saw the handrighting on the wall. thank God my bills were all paid and I took a less paying job but one where they dont screw you!! dont get me wrong i made great money for most all those years. and I am thankful for that opportunity, but they gave me nothing I worked my butt off and earned every dime!!! I could say a lot more but so glad i found a way out.......
