you are an idiot, he made ppl work those hrs because his boss said for it to be done. He has a family just like you so don't judge someone before you walk in their shoes.

<quoted text>Oh yeah it is. Greg Goodners, Debra Lewis', Don Wilsons, Keith Crooks, Sandy Logsdons, Chris Taylor, it's all their fault. These members of management don't give a damn about Hytrol or the employees. They just want to come to work (not daily though, these people don't have to worry about points but they're the ones who are quick to reward their hardworking employers with points). It is their fault but will never admit it, they'll continue to blame the employees for hytrols downfall.
Don't forget Bob West. He tops the list of SOBs who would step on ANYONE who got in his way to the top at Hytrol. Don't know how they all live with themselves.

I will attest to the fact that you are not going to move up if you are not "friends" with management. Chris Glenn hires by the buddy system and Bob West will just go along with it. The workers at Hytrol deserve better than Chris Glenn (although a smart guy) and Bob West (who knows nothing) and Gregg Goodner who expects his secretary to deliver coffee and tea to him when he is not using the company plane for personal business. There are some good managers there though, but until Gregg retires and until someone other than Sherry Stringer is pulling the strings there Hytrol will never get any better. Hytrol made $108 million and gave the employees 3 days Tom's Gift. Tom is probably crying about this right now. More profit this year than last but only 30% of the bonus to us. I wonder why...

that 108 million doesn't mean more profit. that's the sales total of the year, the companies cost went up last year with the economy and more employees, so probably less profit.

But, there was more profit this year. Last year we lost money.

Your employee benefits are NEVER going to get better. The only way they will get better is when the chinese standard of living equals ours... Which is unlikely in a communist country. It just costs way too much to manufacture in america relative to china and india

What did Judy Nichols do to
deserve it?
JUDGMENT
On the 3rd day of May, 2011, this matter came before the Court for trial by jury. Judy
Nichols appeared in person and through her attorney, Lucien R. Gillham. Hytrol Conveyor
Company, Inc., appeared through its corporate representative, Sandy Logsdon, and its attorneys, Paul
D. Waddell and M. Scott Jackson. Both parties announced ready for trial. A jury of 12 was duly
selected and sworn. At the conclusion of all of the evidence and after the jury had been instructed
on the law, the jury returned a verdict finding that Judy Nichols failed to prove by the greater weight
of the evidence that her sex was a motivating factor in Hytrolís decision to discharge her. Judgment
is therefore entered in favor of Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., on the claims of Judy Nichols. The
complaint of Judy Nichols is dismissed with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 5th day of May, 2011.

I think it's amazing how Bob West will post how important employee happiness is on the facebook page. If he'd actually get out in the shop, he'd realize company morale is lower than I've ever seen it. The quality of our employees has dropped significantly in the last year or two. We now have 1 in 10 that is competent enough to do the job, or not lazy as hell. Everything that is enjoyable about the job is gone. If they find out there's a part of the job you like doing, they'll take it away. I've even seen team leaders try to tell employees when they can go to the bathroom. The company has become a joke to other factories in our area. I have friends at other companies and they've told complaining employees "Hytrol is hiring". That's right, we've now become the McDonald's of factory work in Jonesboro. The building is completely disgusting at all times. Our safety is a joke. We have overheads and trip hazards everywhere. According to some first responders, they're being redone in a way only to protect the company and any that actually care will be taken off the team. I heard of two being taken off the other night. Charlie Clay was fired twice from Thomas & Betts right next door. Not too surprising that safety is only aimed at firing employees now instead of making a safer work environment. This company's only going to get worse. Also, don't bet on the "free" healthcare at the clinic. It's now just a way for you to get fired as well. On the job injuries aren't even thoroughly checked out. They glance at injuries and hand you a cup for a drug test. Billie has the worst disposition of any human being on the planet. She slams doors when someone wants to see an actual doctor instead of her and generally throws a fit at the drop of a hat. She let a former employee with a heart condition bleed for three hours at work. She sent him home and told him to go to the ER if it kept bleeding, completely ignoring warning signs that you can Google and find. But, since she's really good buddies with Bob West, she'll probably retire from here. There's not a bright side to Hytrol at all anymore except the pay. Tom's gift is getting phased out. That's why more columns get added to it every year. We still do have some good management, but their hands are tied by the morons in a higher position. Chris Glenn will be the last person we'll ever have in management that cares at all for the employees. At least he doesn't just blow smoke up your ass if there's an actual problem
