Okay guys. Who do you think is the worst employer in Dickson, TN? What do they do that makes them so inconsiderate, unappreciative or simply a downright jerk? I know there are plenty out there taking advantage of you. Let's hear your stories.

Shiloh Industries. In 2009 they made Salary Employees take 7 weeks off without pay yet told them they still expected "that their job be done" forcing several people to work for free some of those 7 weeks. Pay was cut up to 10% and workloads doubled. Other benefits taken away as well. Also several safety issues over the last couple of years.

It is against the law for employees to be required to work without pay if receiving an hourly wage. Contact the Tennessee Labor Board in Nashville and file a complaint.

quad graphics,,they bought the old world color plant. came in here took the mayor of dickson to wisconsin,,told him all his plans about how he was going to keep the people there working.. so what does dickson county do?gives them tax breaks.now folks in this county people have been hard hit. then he turns around and has a massive lay -off.138 jobs.most of the senior people in the plant. they didn;t even know about the lay off.the county commissioners found out at there christmas party.so this guy is getting a tax break he doesn;t deserve.when people will be losing there homes cars ,,you name it..isn;t it time dickson did the right thing and take those tax breaks back?? look how much tolulene has poisioned wells in this county.alot of folks have cancer from it now. and what will be done about it,,nothing because the people won;t stand up and do a thing..

First, I have never worked at or for any of the priniting companies at this location since its inception so I have no bias about the company.
You rail about how bad the most recent owner is regarding treatment of employees and Dickson. Then you claim this company has been poluting the water table for years. If true, don't you think the latter is much, much worse.
Companies come and go. Owners come and go. I worked for a company that was bought and sold 5 times in 3 years but I never let that blind me from doing my job.
I think you should reflect on your priorities

The employees that got laid off from Quad Graphics finally got TAA approved benefits in June after applying in Jan. It took that long for approval because Quad refused to cooperate! Now the employees are having a horrific time getting those benefits because the lady at the Dickson Career Center refuses to do her job! She only helps a select few, this is being tracked and documented in case an attorney needs to be brought in! Anyone that was an active union member is being black balled from any job in Dickson. The former horrible HR lady is now at Shiloh, feel very sorry for the poor employees there!

They are horrible, I would NEVER take my kids there...infact I wouldnt take my dead dog to them. The owner's are a bunch of idiots and cheats. My child had a little boy in her class room that had pink eye for 2 weeks, no one ever told me, nor did they send the child home. I witnessed them throwing another little girls breakfeast in the trash can one morning becasue she brought in Mcdonalds. Its a pathetic place to be called a daycare and I will do everything I can to have them go out of buisniess.

If you know all of this is going on you should report it. It is your responsibilty to do so. Stop complaining on here and contact someone that can make a difference. If this information is not true be careful a case of the pink eye will be the least of your worries

It would have only taken me one of these examples for me to remove my child from this place. If this is true why did you keep your child there. I have to wonder if you are an ex-employee that really did not want to work in the first place. I hear that is usually the problem or parents that owe money. This story sounds false to me.

I do not know what kind of business they are, but they have more fund raisers than the American Red Cross. Are they completely government funded for children in need or do they just expect fund raisers to supply the place. If I was a parent there I think I would be over the fund raisers by now. My goodness.
