WTH....is going on at that place??? I have heard all kinds of stuff for the past few weeks around town about that place and how they do thier employees.Working people 7 days a week for two, three months straight,10 hour shift that they will let you know about two hours before you go home, you will know if you see a Montaplast employee they walk around like zombies or act like they have high blood pressure??Firing people left and right for just off the wall stuff, taking vacation days away from workers to cover for thier two shut downs so the workers dont claim UI benfits. I have heard they work so much it has caused realtionship problems, famliy problems, health problems??? How is this place still have its doors open??

This is all true. I worked there and they are horrible people. I have friends that still work there and they did take some of their vacation days to cover shutdowns for the reason you said. So they can't draw unemployment benefits. It's very illegal to do that btw, but if no one says anything then nothing can be done about it. I got so tired of being made to feel like crap, and constantly holding being fired over my head. I did my job and never got into any kind of trouble. But if Thomas Shuck saw you smiling or laughing, you better watch out cause you were gonna get fussed at. A company is only as good as they treat their employees. Montaplast is going down fast!!!
wow

I worked there for a week and one day I was walking into work ,had to think for a minute and turned around and said fuck this shit, found another job in a week by the way. They are crazy out there, dam crazy!!! When I was there a few people got let go cause they were really sick like had surgery or were in the hospital and they gave them like a short time frame to be back from like major stuff. And yea the working 10 hours shifts all that stuff is true!! They let you know at the last min sometimes if you have to stay over 2 more hours on your shift and wont let you know till Friday if you have to work the weekend so you really dont have any way to make any plans, when you work there they expect your whole life to be centered around Montaplast!!! Now the front office ect, they dont do that, every weekend off all that, I heard from someone they made the people out there in the plants work on Easter!!! Yea Easter and since it didn't fall on a weekday they didnt pay Triple time even if it was a Holiday cause they found a loop whole some how and yea they did take vacation days 4 of them away from the workers there so on the two shut downs the two days that were not covered would be with out them getting to claim UI benfits, I was there that week when they had the big meeting and the guy said to us about the state being broke and they didn't have any money in UI benfits anymore??? I thought that was suppose to be covered by a company you work for??? And it had nothing to do with the state being broke.

Yea I recently worked at that hell hole, I didnt last long and I really dont give a dam!! I ntoice a dept out there and thank god I never got sent to it it scared the hell out of me walking by and watching the people, each person was at a table making parts and each table had this big timer on it like a bomb REALLY NO JOKE and these people had to make the part in this time and hit a button when they were done and do another part!!! Then you had the bosses going on at them saying HIT YOUR BUTTON!! I was like shit dont put me there.

The nickname for that place going around Frankfort is The Fourth Reich.
The problem with that place is they are too busy!
A company can only run for so long at capacity(machine).
This totaly destroys your workforce(physicaly and mentaly) and your machinery.
Know how ya feel

No, the problem is that they want to lay off/ fire people that have been there for years and hire temps that dunno what they are doing so that they dont have to pay them as much, and they are using one person to do a 10 person job. Craziness. And dont even try to complain to someone higher up, they would rather let you go than try to fix any problems.
uh ok

You may work 10 hours and don't know when to make plans. However, I know if I worked there I wouldn't complain, especially clearing $1000 every 2 weeks. That's some big money.

Unless you have worked there, you don't know how crappy of a place it is. It's not worth the stress.

The parent company in Germany is organized(union). Why the big fuss on management's part?
Is it because they would'nt be able to intimidate their workers anymore?
I remember the last time union represenitives were there, the current H.R. director used his truck to block the employee entrance and almost ran over the guy! This resulted in national labor board charges against the company! What an idiot!!!
