I work! Maybe I am an exception but I do not know anyone on welfare nor do any of the people I go to church with receive welfare. A few are on unemployment for sure but they are actively looking for work. I think to paint all of McDowell's citizens as lazy and seeking welfare does a disservice to the county and your children (if you have any) and to your relatives (if you have any) here. This county has its share of problems but the people I know and were raised with know the value of a dollar, know the value of a day's work and won't take or ask for air in a jug. They have pride and believe in self sufficiency. For every person on welfare here, there are ten hardworking persons and three or four looking for a job who will work. Not every person from the south of the border is illegal (nor a hard worker for that matter), not every young girl with a baby is unmarried and in doubt about the father's identity and not everyone or anywhere near the majority for that matter in this county is looking for government mail box money. Generalities show your lack of productive thought. Give us jobs, we will work and buy cars and homes and take vacations. Take away our jobs and we still will keep a roof over our kids heads even if its buy cutting loans and picking up cans. all we need is opportunity, not a handout.
Excellent post,thanks for sharing.

If they can continue to thrive even with worthless employee's such as Stan Cook, then they will endure most anything that comes along. He is in the engineering dept. and is getting perks from the contractors hired by Baxter's. He took the place of a man who got fired for accepting money from outside contractors and now Crook (I mean Cook) is doing the very same thing. The place is operated by a group of young educated idiots who has never, and will never, get their hands dirty and corporate is treating it with a blind eye and deaf ear. They are so called professionals who know very little about a great deal and keeps knowing less and less about more and more until they know practically nothing about everything. At one time, Baxter's was the backbone of McDowell County,but not anymore.

I would like to say that i proudly work at Baxter Healthcare in Marion, N.C. I have worked at Baxter for 10 years and i have only positive things to say about the job. The opportunities and compensation packages the company offers is very competitive with today's job market. I am an engineer, and i give Baxter (not Baxter's) 100% everyday because i feel that is what i owe them because of the opportunities they have provided for me and my family. As for the comment about Stan Cook. I personally have worked with Stan for 9 years. He is a very honest, hard-working employee who works hard to keep the Baxter North Cove facility in top working condition. Immune2u needs to understand that just because people may seem like they are not working hard because they are in an office all day really does not understand anything about professional responsibilites. Baxter is a wonderful company and i am thankful to have it and employees like Stan Cook here in the Marion, N.C. area.

My wife has worked at Baxter for 35 years.When we got married in early 1975 we were both called by Baxter to come to work. She went but I chose to stay in Textiles. At that time Textiles paid much better than Baxter did. But that soon changed and I don't have to tell anyone how I now regret my decision to leave Baxter. My wife can soon retire from Baxter with a good pension from Baxter. If you are young and don't care to work hard Baxter is a great place to work because they offer you a chance to advance after you have been there for at least a year.I would devastate the economy of McDowell county if Baxter were to leave. Not only would we miss the 2,000+ jobs they provide but consider the taxes that the company pays to the county.

Wow I'm disappointed. It took 18 minutes for the internet troll to crawl out from under the bridge and voice its' opinion, that most likely, nobody wants to hear. First off, you don't know me or my situation. I may be employed now and looking for a job with better insurance. Second, I may not have any family to support. It's obviously hard for you to imagine someone without enough kids to field a baseball team in Marion, but there's a few of us around that chose not to squirt out children like rabbits. And third, if you want to scrub the toilets at McDonald's, that's certainly your right. I just ask that you keep your dick beaters off of my Big Mac. If you've really heard enough whining, then maybe you should keep quiet for a while, or maybe not type as hard when you're posting opinions about someone you don't know.
It would appear that I have hit a nerve. Consider that I could be the person decdiding if you get that job. It wouldn't take me too long to make a decision either seeing as how you viciously look down upon the county and the people of the county of whom you know what maybe 1% well? I am sure in that interview it would take no more than a few seconds for that superiority complex of yours to reveal itself. Take a hard look in the mirror and see if your inner exploration reveals you to be so superior to the other human beings your make such vulgar remarks about and if you are so superior, then why stay here amongst us barbarians? When I hire people, and I do hire people for the record, the holier than thou attitudes turn me off and people that think they are so superior to the people they will be WORKING WITH never get that call back. Think about it.

I guess that those songs that they sang while they were "Laboring" were songs of joy just knowing that their employers were providing for them. Let's all remember that when we go back to work Monday on the old "Baxter Plantation" and sing us a happy song too.
Hey, in Japan they actually do sing the company song every morning. Does Baxters even have a company song? Maybe somebody should write one......

Is Baxter a great place to work? no it isn't,but you bashers show me another place in this area that pays the money that Baxters does. Most who get fired there are to damn lazy to work and point out.

I wish I had started there and stayed there as well....the only sustainable textile company left is COATS and it has fallen off greatly in terms of the company/employee relationship. IT's really laughable now what is expected of employees and especially mid-management. The ones at the top don't have a finger on the pulse of the company just the bottom line...from here it turns to cut throat. Now it's just "How many people's jobs can we cut while forcing ridiculous quotas and expectations on the ones left in order to keep afloat?". COATS turned to sh*t when it changed hands from American Thread Company. Management there play too many games with people's lives in order to meet their personal agendas and spite their subordinates. Thank goodness the very top decided to make a change in leadership at the Sevier plant.

Baxter is a horrid place to work. Remember about 10 years ago when they let people get cell phones on the Baxter account and then were allowed to run up $1000,$2000, up to $6000 cellphone bills? Remember when they came through the plant and took all the phones because someone made a complaint to Bayer? A german company had to set Baxter straight. That's pathetic.

Working for Baxter pays the bills.I'm glad that I have a dependable job that allows me to support my family.With that said, Baxter SUX ASS as a place to work.If you really need a job I would suggest looking elsewhere unless you can tolerate excessive lies and mistreatment by the management.It's not for everyone.

trust me I know alot of people that work at Baxters and I know for a fact they fart and still have their jobs.. don't know who your supervisor was and sorry you lost your job. If you wanna get your job back wait a year and I'm sure they'd hire you through Man Power. Alot of people up there are re hires and some of them I'm not sure how they got their jobs back but they have so I'm sure you would too. I don't think I'll take you up on the waffle house offer though but thankyou anyway. Once again sorry you lost you job and I mean that or I wouldn't say it.

The same goes for Baxter.. they are cutting out jobs left and right. It will only be a matter of time before there are very few jobs left up there unless you are in Maintenance or higher management. They are putting in machines all the time that do away with peoples jobs. You are just a number to them.. more concerned about numbers than quality or the people that are employed by them..
