Don't let a call back to work suggest that things are good. They have no problem calling you back and laying you right back off. They need to try to make a quality product and make it right the first time, instead of rushing it through and shipping it so they can get it on the books for the quarter. I think they have to be trying to make this place look bad so they can shut the place down and all go back to New York. What has changed from when we made the best alloy to what we make today? It's the same dummies running the same machines as when we were the world leader. Only change has been in management style!

Some of the managers come from big dollar schools. They know how to yell but they don't know anything about huntington plant (nor do they seem interested)...they are full of hot air

Name any manager that is worth anything?

Hope your right wow. However, the vim is always booked....and we need more than just two new orders...plus, I wonder if new orders have any profit to them or just making volume numbers

They don't take volume orders anymore! The products are priced to the customers at a substantial profit. If they don't want to pay the higher price, they can go elsewhere.
And that's what they are doing!

Big salary layoff coming is what I've heard from out front. Just saw the numbers for plant overtime. It's been at 68% for five months now. More hourly employees retiring everyday. If you're hearing layoff, it's engineers, metallurgists, sales, accounting and secretaries.

Never heard of salary employee getting laid off. They always "pursue other career options". Then 4 to 6 months later, they are offered their old position back with a few more responsibilities than when they left. They are also paid 2/3 of the salary they were previously making, with less benefits. But they are expected to do more, faster because the new operations manager snapped his fingers and said it would be done cheaper and faster!
Ride the spiral!
