Judy Nichols got a bad deal. Main concern is the Loberg/Jones family. Justify low pay by giving the "Christmas bonus" and party once a year.

You have a job. So quit bitching when others do not.

I have worked at Hytrol for over a decade and a half. This use to be the place to work. Not anymore. The management that has came in during the past few years has ruined a great place to work. They don't believe in employees having families or lives outside the prison doors. They believe in slavery do not ever try to get a job here it will be the worst mistake of your life. Come on Gregg stand up for your company and your employees and put an end to all of this nonsense, make Hytrol the great place to come to like it use to be. Your employees have been faithful through all of the bad times now show us a little appreciation instead of more hardships. We are begging for some relief I haven't had any time with my family since May it's got to stop somewhere. Please stop the 12 hour days and the mandatory every Saturday. We can't get a Saturday off unless we play golf. For this who don't know if you play golf you are excused from work while the rest of us have to be here or receive a point. What does golf have to do with manufacturing conveyors?

Yeah well the health insurance has to be the worse I've ever seen.$1500 deductible per person. Really? It's not worth the $60 a week we pay. The insurance went to hell when Ed had our last lay off and when the number of employees dropped the insurance premiums and deductibles went up. Now we are fully staffed maybe even over staffed but our insurance stays the same what's going on here?

Mr. Loberg cared about his company. Since he passed it has gone downhill quickly. Their health insurance is a joke.

I have been a Hytrol wife for several years, my husband worked there when we met. He loved his job, never missed a day! In the past couple years it has totally changed, now he is cranky & grumpy when he gets home! I want to agree with the lady on insurance, we discuss that frequently! We have never met the deductible, if we saved what we pay each week we would be more likely to pay Dr bills! We do appreciate his job, but enough is enough, were are the people in the office @ 6:00 am & 6:00pm & every Saturday? Not at Hytrol, need new management! The was being nice, it gets worse!

My husband also works at Hytrol. He works in the office and he is there before 6 a.m. and he has worked a lot of Saturdays. Whoever told you office people aren't working long hours lied to you.

Hytrol has lost alot of good employees due to the point system. I agree that there should be guidelines on absences but when your working 60-72 hours a week you're going to have to miss work. I'm talking about good hard working people that try to take care of life's situations while trying to keep their jobs. There have been too many new ideas in the past couple of years that's why Hutrol is in the shape it's in right now. The ones that haven't pointed out and are still walking around like zombies have had just about all that they can take. In my opinion for the best interest for the company is to honor Mr. Tom Loberg and operate this legendary company like he did and make Hytrol # 1 again.

. If you're husband is management then he is not at work at 6 and he can leave at will to go take care of personal business because the point system doesn't apply to them.

. The point enforcer's at prison Hytrol miss more work than the employees they fire for missing work. You also get a point for failing to clock out even though you busted your ass for twelve hours.

I never said management, I said he works in the office. He is at work BEFORE 6 everyday. They are working 10 hours a day.

Be glad you have a job, i worked for a Construction Co would have been there 10 yrs in Jan. We was out of town working got in on Thurs and they told us we didnt have a job any longer. Then they tried to screw us out of Unemployment but the Unemployment office fought for us and got it. I was also a complainer about the office people but now just wished I had a JOB.

Lol... Someday, every one there will get the backbone to stand up for their rights. I used to work there. I really loved the people I worked with. The policies are horrible. Until the employees decide to band together, they will always be ran over. Profit over people is the norm these days. Our grandparents stood up for their rights and earned a better quality of living. We have let it go back to the days of the railroad. Make no mistake... you are losing your rights b/c you fail to stand up for them. They are already in place, you just have to get others to quit believing that they can't make a difference.

You have no rights. Something any of you have failed to mention is the fact that you are all replaceable. Thatís the way the managers see it.

Temp workers are cheap labor and the company doesnít have to do the required work/paperwork to bring them in or let them go. I see them come and go by the numbers where I work daily.

It sucks to have to work in todayís America but companies are trying to do what they can to compete with the overseas competitors. The hard working Americans have to work a little harder to just get by in these times.

My suggestion, if there is still enough full time employees working there then you should pull together and find a good metal working union and call them up. A simple petition to get it started will speak louder to the office personnel then a gripe forum on topix will.

That is the truth. The management has always hated the word union because they would have to treat employees with some respect, pay competively, offer respectable insurance.. Employees get together. There is strength in numbers.
