It's okay. It gets pretty hot in the summer, but the pay is okay. They are serious about safty.

The people that work their brag about the good profit sharing plan. I know some guys with 6 figures built up.

I don't think it's shutting down. They have been in business almost 100 years.

Like any place their will be complaners...mainly ex people who couldn't cut it.

My husband has worked there for years. They do pay well and have awesome profit sharing. I also know it is hot as hell in the summer, I have a grumpy man at home for proof..lol. They are NOT shutting down, but I know they are not hiring either. I hope I helped. Have a GREAT day.

wow...sounds like someone's cranky. If you don't like it there, then LEAVE. There's plenty of work available in Paragould and Marmaduke. Try ARI, Anchor, Monroe, Prestolite, Emerson - the list goes on and on. Don't crank about stuff you can't control and move on. If you like the pay so much, then you need to learn to like the job and the company as well - it's a package deal. If not, then take your bad attitude somewhere else.

hey roofman, if you don't like your job and it sounds like you probably do a lot of B S no matter where you are, change your attitude or get another job, oh but wait, if you have just a bad attitude about everything in life, then you won't like that job long either.

i sure would hate to be married to you!@

My husband IS a BOSS...and he IS all that. He started from the bottom and worked his butt off to get to where he is. He gets up and goes to work everyday...sick or not. He puts in 10 hour days and comes home sweaty and dirty just like he did when he was a worker. And you are damn right.....he is rude and crude, but only to those who want to whine and cry. You should be happy you even have a job (alot of people need and want one)and you should take all this negative energy you are using to bash and blow your job and put it into DOING your job and ONE DAY when you grow up...you just might be a boss too!

My husband left his job at utility because the bosses did nothing but stand around and work the workers like they were dogs. Some of the bosses were only a boss because they could not do their job fast enough so instead of getting rid of them they would promote them. My husband was a welder and a great welder at that and new how to work every station in that place, so instead of being good to him they worked his ass off and they lost him as an employee...

I only know what my husband does (works hard to support our family) and does not do (put up with bull crap from whiney and lazy people). I have never and WILL never work in that place. So, I have no idea what goes on with other bosses in other depeartments. And if your husband was so unhappy there...he did the right thing by finding a new job. I hope he is treated better, gets better pay, and enjoys it. Life is too short to be unhappy!!!!

It always cracks me up when I hear somebody that couldn't make it somewhere blame everybody else...

I guess to some people it may look like "standing around"....but managing means there is some paper work and record keeping that has to be done.

Do you really think any company could last that long by promoting the deadbeats and running off the good folks? Right...I see Emerson, Monroe, ARI, Utility, the hospital, Anchor all getting trashed on here, but they all seem to manage just fine without the losers...

I'm sure your husband was a good welder, but usually good folks make it and succeed and the others just complain that everybody is out to get them, and blame everybody else...

Ever notice how these companies fight to keep the good ones, but tell some "adios"?

I understand about the paperwork because i have been in a managers position and i know that the managers there have the big wigs on top of them. But if you talk to anyone who is still at Utility they will tell you that a lot of the good workers have left (not been told adios).
