Is this factory still open?, heard rumors of it shutting down last year and wasn't for sure. Somebody said it was a good place to work, good money$, but a few boss's were hard to work for, slave drivers, anybody work there with info????

The pay is good. The plant is air conditioned and clean but the plan manager must be the devil that your talking about. The rules are ridiculous. No tolerance for any absence or mistakes. There is a pattern of firing those that have been there over 20 years. Defiantly cleaning house now. Very dishonest in their ethics. Labor board knows them by name now. Been known to back termination dates which reduces retirement benefits. As of now they are keeping $120 out of our weekly disability checks. They are paying us for 5 days and keeping 2 days for themselves. A class action is starting shortly. There has been talk about taking out the plant manager. We had one salary quit because he was fearful of what might happen. My wife is fearful for me also. Been here a long long time. There is no job security for us older people...only harassment and mind games. I wish they treated us like people again.
