The windows were a needed replacement to save on utilities as they were the original units. Also never hurts to improve the impression a customer has when they visit the plant, who by the way are quite impressed the changes that have taken place since Hexpol's acquisition. But you are right, there is no way to effectively cool a plant the size of Hexpol and there is spot cooling for many of the operators in the plant. The condition of the plant is so much better than it has been in years past. Carbon black does not fill the plant everyday as you suggest. I can go into the plant, spend time on the mixers and the mills and still be reasonably clean when I walk out. That could never have happened in past years. There has been much work continuing to improve the work conditions versus the past but only so much can be done at a time. And as for lost customers, you are just plain wrong about the circumstances. Both tire customers pulled all the volume back internally as they had excess capacity within their own facilities. They did this all our competitors as well not just Hexpol. If you are so unhappy, I know a number of hard working folks who would love to have your job so why not do everyone a favor and go work somewhere else much better.

I am applying there now. They are opening up new lines and I hope I get hired on! They have great benefits such as insurance and a nice Christmas bonus. If I get hired on there I sure won't be worrying about trying to get Christmas this year! This company is growing so I look at it as a secure job that I can provide for my family with.

The person above me is absolutely correct. They lookfor reasons to fire the ones who have been there for a long time...higher pay and vacation time are just too much to ask for people who have been doing the job correctly for years, and laying them off would mean severence pay -oh no! They try to screw them out of their breaks, and work them like slaves. They wait until the last minute to tell them that their 8 hour shift just turned into 12 and work them 6 to 7 days a week and short handed. It's pathetic - but at least the office has better windows now...who cares about the people doing all the work?

This is just a job, nothing more, nothing less. They do not promote individualism or free thinking, unless they tell you to. There are constant videos and leadership programs evolving around John Maxwell that employees clearly dislike. Even tho John Maxwell has good teachings, the employees feel as if its a poor attempt at brainwashing, more than helping. A small number of people work in climate controlled conditions (about 10%), and an even smaller number of those are African American (less than 1%) when African Americans make up roughly 50 % of the employee population. This site is plagued with nepotism at its rarest form. To put it into perspective, there are more sets of brothers (white) who are in leadership positions than there are African Americans who work in air conditioning(1). They will not allow you to grow outside the company. Whatever you decide to do, as far as education, has to pertain to their company internally, or they will not assist you. Although they have improved housekeeping on the site, employee to management relationships took a big hit. Majority of the things that management mandates, hurts or slows down the process. Contrarily, SPEED is their main focus, which older employees feel is an attempt to move them out of the way for a younger faster generation. There is a mutiny going on among the employees. It wouldn't surprise me if they went on strike in the near future.
I agree.
