I beleive polyone is the plastics department, I used to work in Dpp dept.(this dept used steam presses) It all used to be Colonial Rubber works. I worked in all depts at one time or another.When I quit in 1993 I was making 13.75 an hour. It used to be a great company to work for. The work was not hard--maybe a little dirty and hot.I do know they did a lot of updating and changes have been made. I wish now I had stayed as I worked there for over 10 years.

I can honestly say that Polyone in Dyersburg has seen more people walk outs in the last 2 years than they have ever seen. Bad bad management these days

I just found out today that there may be up to nine people leaving in the next few weeks. I think the company needs to take a look at how they are treating people. That many people dont leave a decent paying job for no reason. Its all based on two people and they are up in the front office. They have placed a noose around the place and trying to hang it. This is really sad

Just thinking.... Maybe if 'someone', or several someones, would write 'very informative' letters to the Editor in the local newspaper, rather than standing by and seeing this plant go down the drain, the way people did Dyersburg Fabrics, then, just maybe, it might start a 'huge ball' rolling to make some changes for the people working there.
Doing nothing but 'watching', and a little griping about it 'hidden away here' isn't going to be a cure.... That is if anybody gives a care.
DO SOMETHING.

There is a group that tried to write the editor of the newspaper. However the newspaper wouldn't print it without giving Polyone a chance to respond. From what I was told Polyone declined comment and so the letter from the 'group" wasn't printed. There is a lot going on at polyone right now and many unhappy people. The truth is going to be exposed soon. I heard that one person (with info from many unhappy people) is considering writing a book about the way the company has turned out and how the people are being treated.

Sounds like this place is run by the same management people that run an "entertainment" business across the river. The true success of any business is how happy the employees are and that is always a direct reflection upon people that call themselves management. Unfortunately, too many people get a big title, let it go to their head and no longer care how they treat their employees. All they seem to care about is their big paycheck and as long as they get away with it - running off employees/customers will not matter.

i have been an employee there for many years,due to my age ,probably couldn't get another job that pays as well.Times are hard and business is slow,but the one thing i do know,is during lean times people need to believe in the one's making decisions,I'm sorry to say I don't and no one else does either.I've seen slow times,good solid morale can carry a company through. Again it's not there!! I don't claim to be an expert in the business side of manufacturing plastics,but good relationship between management and production is absolutely critical.If there are not changes made in either personel or the position management takes,I feel as though Dyersburg will be losing a huge business,that we as a town can't afford to lose.

George of the jungle doesn't know if he is coming or going. All he knows is how to read a newspaper. IF SOMETHING DOESN'T CHANGE SOON THEN POLYONE BETTER HOPE THAT MANAGEMENT KNOWS HOW TO RUN THE PRODUCTION LINES BECAUSE MOST OF ITS EXPERIENCED EMPLOYEES ARE LOOKING FOR OTHER JOB OPPORTUNITIES.

Yet there are the Dyersburg residents/officials so happy & patting themselves on the back because one or two new businesses came into town. No one ever stops to consider what we've already lost and you can't make up for hundreds & hundreds of lost jobs(and more coming)with one or two new businesses. There is nothing to attract anyone to Dyer County. What? Shopping? Medical care? Entertainment? Seems like the only people who are happy to live in Dyersburg are the ones who already have everything and they aren't the least bit concerned about the ones who have lost everything. See y'all in church on Sunday. I understand now why everyone is moving to Jackson or Union City. Yes, I know, and believe me, I'd go tomorrow if I could.

Everyone please trust me on this one. Dyersburg officials have nothing to do with the problems at Polyone. It is a total upper management problem.

You are so right as to upper mang.---that has always been a huge problem. They never have a clue as to what or how production is going----it is the hourly emplyoee that gets the job done and makes the co. money!

There have been so many factories that have closed in Dyer County the past several years and while every business has their management problems, that can't be the reason we've lost so many factories in this county. But you have city officials/others talking about how much Dyersburg is growing and how great it's doing???? I think that's what people mean when they talk about the officials or whomever is supposed to be running this town.

Yes--your city officals and your chamber play a big part in recruiting new buisness and companies coming into the county.Another place that has really went downhill is the Dyersburg Mall. Again mang. there has alot to do with keeping buisness there or new ones coming in. Have you seen anything happening there much other than buisness leaving? New outlets and resturants should come in there---Why Not? Back to PolyOne---mang. can make a big difference in how a co. produces!

My comment about polyone is, that i agree what everyone else is saying. There is a whole lot more going on behind closed doors. For everyone wanting to seek a new job there, i would go else where to look. Going there would be the biggest mistake of your life. Waste your time somewhere else. The supervisors are always back stabbing each other. The production manager has no back bone to stand up for his supervisors or line employees. He cowards down to the plant manager all the time. It makes me sick to watch how J.E acts around George. Hes got everyone scared to do there job. He walks around and watches you work and if you walk wrong your not working safe. They've got safety blowed way out and got the employees scared to do anything. George go back to Canada, and be sure you got your green card next time you come to the good ole USA and take your little coward buddy J.E with you, maybe yall can go to another company and run everyone off there. Because that's all you two are good for.
